The second volume in the series presents all known outtakes from 1968 through 1974, starting with Beggars Banquet tracks, Disc One has all 14 instrumental versions of Jigsaw Puzzle with excellent piano runs by Nicky Hopkins and piercing slide guitar by Keith Richards followed by 2 versions of Parachute Woman, the first one with double tracked lead vocals, the second with extensive harp by Jagger at the end followed by 2 takes of  Child Of The Moon (the first one acoustic, the second without lead vocals but with backing vocals) plus the third try at Street Fighting Man, called Pay Your Dues (stereo!) which features three members of Family: Ric Grech on electric violin plus Jim King & Roger Chapman on backing vocals alongside Dave Mason on shehnai and bass drum from Traffic. The last song is Stray Cat Blues s first take, this being longer with additional adlib vocals.

Disc Two opens with 3 different versions of Jumping Jack Flash, the backing track, the promo single and promo film I takes, it is worth noticing that on the studio version the lead instrument is Ian Stewart piano (Bill Wyman is on organ and Keith Richards plays bass too), not the guitar as in all live versions. Next Street Fighting Man IV with a slightly different vocal mix that was published on the official US single and also features a longer outro, followed by 3 versions of No Expectations, the first with slightly different lyrics the second acoustic without piano and the third with less piano and percussions. Factory Girl I presents an alternate fiddle mix while the three takes of Dear Doctor are very similar, differing just in the final mix. After Family that is the electric guitar version there are well known outtakes, which have been originally released on the famous Trident Demos/Mixes bootlegs and Jigsaw Puzzle II with no vocal overdubs.

Disc Three beginning is devoted to various takes of Sympathy For The Devil starting with the acoustic version, then Family acoustic take, an early mix of Salt Of The Earth and a bunch of versions of Memo From Turner.

Disc Four delves into Let It Bleed with the known plethora of outtakes including songs originally sung by Jagger or Richards which didn t make it into the final version of the album and ending with the whole Jamming With Edward album which is a pretty bizarre choice, since there is nothing unreleased, but all here is official, just like Downtown Suzie II which is the Metamorphosis take; the final track here is Country Honk s version without fiddle.

Disc Five provides an assorted batch of songs, some coming from Metamorphosis among which I Don t Know Why, a song the Stones were rehearsing the night Brian Jones died, on some of these tracks Mick Taylor guitar stands out in all of its brilliance as on Jiving Sister Fanny, I m Going Down and Hillside Blues (a.k.a. I Don t Know The Reason Why). Then there are 7 versions of Gimme Shelter (isolated parts) with first guitar, second guitar (all by Richards), bass, drums and percussions, piano and vocals, the disc ends with Marianne Faithful version of Sister Morphine with Jagger on acoustic guitar and then The Wild Colonial Boy from the Ned Kelly soundtrack.

Disc Six is devoted to Sticky Fingers with all the famous versions of iconic tunes like You Gotta Move, Brown Sugar with Eric Clapton and Wild Horses with Peter Kleinow and Leon Russell, with some slightly different versions like those accidentally published on some copies of Hot Rocks and ending with some alternate versions, unfortunately not listed on the accompanying booklet. Discs Seven and Eight present Exile outtakes, including those released on the expanded Deluxe version and Shine A Light sung by Jagger on a Leon Russell album, plus some known backing tracks coming from the Hopkins Tape that was posted on YouTube in 2011, just after the Exile deluxe release. Some songs are present as known outtakes and then as officially released versions, like I m Not Signifying previously known among collectors as I Ain t Lying or Ain t Gonna Lie or Dancing In The Light, the tracks released on the Exile Deluxe version have been reworked in fall 2009 and some lyrics added. Interestingly Happy here has a longer outro clocking in at 3.11 instead of the usual 3.05.

Discs Nine and Ten focus instead on the Dallas 1972 tour rehearsals, unfortunately there is lots of dead air, a condensed more listenable version was posted awhile ago on a Stones message board that had better be used; anyway Disc Ten includes You Can t Always Get What You Want allegedly from May Burbank rehearsals and a fragment of It s Funny, the duet with Jagger and Carly Simon that has recently surfaced (both however were included in the movie Cocksucker Blues) none of this featured in the booklet.

With Disc Eleven we go back in time to the famous Montreux rehearsals of May 1972 plus more Exile outtakes including 3 tracks released on the Deluxe versions not mentioned in the booklet and some recordings from Jamaica late 72 from which the album Goat s Head Soup will stem in 1973, including the first take of Criss Cross aka Save Me; actually compared with the usual takes these tracks show a more prominent bass which permeates the tunes melodic lines, there is a curious effect at the end of Separately when after the song seems to end, it then continues for about 20 seconds with what seems a more basic layer.

More of these on Disc Twelve many coming from well known acetate including many instrumentals and some promo films; then there are 3 takes of Criss Cross, number II with Bobby Keys on sax   from early on, number IV having been officially used on a Japanese movie called Metamorphoses, then Silver Train II is an early version with no harmonica, but brass, then 100 Years Ago is longer with a different mix, Silver Train II has no harmonica, but brass. Funnily they used the poor sounding bootleg version of Too Many Cooks instead of the officially released one, Following The River ends this disc. The last disc, number Thirteen, features It s Only Rock n Roll outtakes, some coming from a well known acetate, others from promo films.

Finally Disc Thirteen presents more acetate tracks coming from an acetate with special notice for Dance Little Sister II that has a longer differently mixed version of the tune, the usual bunch of promo films soundtracks and the early versions of Cherry Oh Baby and Fool To Cry alongside two takes of I Got A Letter, another reggae the Stones decided not to use officially.

This is a nice collection of outtakes and officially released tracks which could have considerably been better had the label placed more attention on the accompanying information, which show the usual shabby attitude and at times are even misleading as per WLR style.
