Keith Richards re-released his Christmas-single Run Rudolph Run (first released on a 7" in 1978) as a limited edition 12" for Black Friday. Its original B-side The Harder They Come and his collaboration with Toots & The Maytals Pressure Drop are the two other tracks on the vinyl. Pressure Drop gets its first (regular) physical release here. All songs are credited to be remixed by Steve Jordan, but it's hard to make out differences to the original mixes. More info here.

Newest edition in the From The Vaults-series is the complete video/audio of Miami 25.11.94. This was officially only available in parts by now (hence the title). The picture quality is disappointing, the audio is okay, but this time not remixed by Bob Clearmountain (for a change). DVD-bonus tracks are five songs from East Rutherford/New Jersey from August 14, 1994. Available here.
DVD (or bluray) + 2 CD's by The Rolling Stones 'Voodoo Lounge Uncut' (Eagle Vision EAGDV101).
A nicely packaged 2-CD compilation of blues standards with cover artwork by Ronnie Wood and tracks allegedly handpicked by The Rolling Stones themselves. Unfortunately the tracklist is a collection of the most well known blues standards, which are undoubtedly great, but probably already in everyone's collection. So this aims more on newbies. Good thing: 10% of the net receipts of the album will be donated to Willie Dixon's Blues Heaven Foundation. Available here.
2 CD's by Various Artists 'Confessin' The Blues' (BMG BMGCAT155CD).
The 6-CD Deluxe Edition of Dylan's new bootleg series (with Blood On The Tracks-outtakes) includes two takes (takes 2-3, remake 2) of Meet Me In The Morning with banter between Bob Dylan and Mick Jagger. MJ visited Dylan in the nearby studio on September 19, 1974 in New York City, after he supervised the mixing of some Stones live-tracks for an upcoming KBFH-broadcast. Available here.
