The Rolling Stones Release 'Gimme Shelter'

Gimme Shelter is a compilation by The Rolling Stones released on the Decca label in 1971.

It reached #19 on the U.K chart.

This is not a soundtrack album from the movie of the same name. Side one is composed of previously-released studio recording from 1968 and 1969. Side two is previously-released live recordings from October 1966.

The first album released by the Rolling Stones' former U.K. record company, Decca, following the band's departure to Atlantic in 1971, Gimme Shelter set the stage for the somewhat disreputable aura that still hangs over each of the compilations that the label unveiled during the early '70s.
