The Stones were strongly against this release. In full page ads in Record Mirror and NME on 20 March 1971 they stated, "We didn't know this record was going to be released. It is, in our opinion, below the standard we try to keep up, both in choice of content and cover design." The 12 songs, dating from the mid-1960s, were chosen because they had never appeared on a UK studio album, some having been originally released only on singles and some having only been released on US studio albums to that point.
All tracks composed by Mick Jagger and Keith Richards, except where noted.
