50-Year-Old 'Lost' Rolling Stones Recording Found In Attic

(hennemusic) A lost Rolling Stones song has surfaced 50 years after it was originally recorded by the band. The Telegraph reports "No One Loves You More Than Me" was recorded in 1964 during one of the group's first sessions at IBC Studios in London's Portland Place.

According to Tracks Auction, the song is has never been released by the Rolling Stones nor is it documented anywhere and is not known to exist other than on this tape. The track is described as "an upbeat pop song that sounds very much like a tune that could have come out of Merseyside c. 1963."

Jeremy Nielsen, a friend of the sound engineer at the studio, saved the tape from being destroyed back in the day and stored it in a box in his attic for more than 50 years before listening to it contents.

The 17-minute recording includes nine tracks from the band's first studio sessions in March 1963 and then in 1964, which came before they released their self-titled debut album.

Among the unreleased songs on the reel-to-reel tape are the lost track, two previously unheard versions of the ballad "As Tears Go By", and "Congratulations", a version of which later surfaced on the 1973 compilation "No Stone Unturned."

Nielsen is putting the tapes up for auction by Tracks Auction on April 3, but he would be just as happy to see the Stones buy the masters themselves. "I couldn't believe it when I heard the tape," says Tracks Auction owner Paul Ward. "I thought there was no way that there could be four unreleased Stones tracks sitting there. In an ideal world, Jeremy would like the Stones to buy them and release them." Read more here.
