Stripped is an album by The Rolling Stones released in November 1995 after the Voodoo Lounge Tour. It is a mixture of small-venue live performances and acoustic studio re-recordings of songs from their previous catalogue, the exceptions being new covers of Willie Dixon's "Little Baby" and Bob Dylan's "Like a Rolling Stone".
The two studio sessions took place from 3–5 March 1995 in Tokyo, Japan and 23–26 July 1995 in Lisbon, Portugal, while the live recordings are from 26 May, 3 July, and 19 July 1995 performances at small concert venues in Amsterdam, Paris, and London, respectively.
Some CD versions of Stripped included an enhanced portion for viewing on a computer, including videos of rehearsals of "Tumbling Dice" and "Shattered" and an alternate performance of "Like a Rolling Stone", and interviews with Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts and Ronnie Wood.
Stripped was well-received and reached No. 9 in the UK and the US, where it went platinum. The lead single, a cover of Dylan's "Like a Rolling Stone", reached No. 12 in the UK, becoming a rock radio hit in the US. It was followed by "Wild Horses" in early 1996.
Stripped was the Rolling Stones' second album with Virgin Records.
Totally Stripped, an expanded and reconceived edition of Stripped, featuring a documentary film about the original project, was released on 3 June 2016 in multiple formats. These included DVD or Blu-ray documentary-only editions, as well as DVD/Blu-ray & CD and DVD/Blu-ray & LP editions adding a single disc or double-LP of concert highlights (distinct from the tracks that comprised the original album) to the film. A limited edition five-disc version of the expanded album added films of the three complete concerts.
All songs written by Mick Jagger and Keith Richards, except where noted.
There also were some outtakes from this album that have been released.
Other circulating outtakes include studio reworkings of "Let's Spend The Night Together", "No Expectations", "Beast of Burden", "Memory Motel", and "Let It Bleed".
