The Rolling Stones recently made headlines around the world when it held a free concert in Cuba. Now the veteran rock band is making headlines again. That is because it will release a new collection of classic songs this summer.
Totally Stripped will be Friday, June 3rd in stores and online. It will be available on a number of formats including: DVD, SD Blu-ray, DVD + CD combo pack, DVD + 2 LP combo pack, and exclusive, limited edition DVD and SD Blu-ray deluxe edition packages. Each of the recording’s platforms present a handful of classic, stripped down Rolling Stones songs performed at venues throughout Europe in the early 1990s following the band’s Voodoo Lounge tour. Those performances were also included in the band’s 2009 live compilation Stripped. What sets this presentation of Stripped apart from its predecessor is the fact that this time around it is being featured on so many more platforms. It also features a number of songs that were not originally included in that previous recording. The band’s performance of ‘Honky Tonk Women’ from its Show in Olympia, Paris on May 26th, 1995 was not included in Stripped but is included both in the Totally Stripped CD and DVD presentation. ‘Faraway Eyes,’ which was part of the band’s set on July 19th, 1995, is also included here where it was originally left off of Stripped. The same can be said of the band’s performance of ‘I Go Wild’ from the Olympia, Paris show. But it is included here as well. These are just a few of the songs included in Totally Stripped that were omitted from Stripped. There are many others as well as songs that were originally included in that recording. That is just a drop in the bucket for this new release. The exclusive limited edition DVD and SD Blu-ray Deluxe Editions include: a sixty-page hard back book and five discs that feature three of those European shows in their entirety for the first time ever. The complete set list for each of the recording’s platforms is noted below.
