Rewind (1971–1984) is a compilation album by The Rolling Stones and was released in 1984. Coming only three years after Sucking in the Seventies, the album was primarily compiled to mark the end of the band's alliance with Warner Music (in North America) and EMI (all other territories), both of whom were the distributors of Rolling Stones Records. It is the second Rolling Stones album to include a lyric sheet (after 1978's Some Girls.)
For the first time since 1969's Through the Past, Darkly (Big Hits Vol. 2), the UK and US editions of Rewind (1971–1984) would each feature altered track listings, reflecting the individual tastes of both territories. The American CD version featured the U.S. top 20 hits from 1971-1983, with the exception of Ain't Too Proud To Beg.
Released in the summer of 1984, Rewind (1971–1984) was not as successful as previous compilations (due, in no small part, to the track repetitions from previous retrospectives), reaching #23 in the UK and #86 in the US, though it went gold there. The album was released on Compact Disc in the United States adding "It's Only Rock'n Roll (But I Like It)" and "Doo Doo Doo Doo Doo (Heartbreaker)". This was the first official US Rolling Stones CD release.
