 VIRGIN RECORDS SIGNS ROLLING STONES
 BEVERLY HILLS, Calif., Nov. 20 /PRNewswire/ -- Virgin Music


Group, the world's largest independent group of record, music publishing and recording studio companies announced the signing of one of the most successful bands in the history of rock music -- the Rolling Stones -- to Virgin Records.
 The worldwide agreement signed today is a substantial long-term contract which includes:
 -- Three new albums to be produced from 1993 onwards.
 -- The entire back catalog of Rolling Stones albums from 1971 to the present day, which will transfer over to Virgin in March 1993.
 Today's agreement is not the first association between Virgin and the Rolling Stones. Keith Richards has been signed to the label as a solo artist since 1988 when Virgin released the very successful "Talk Is Cheap" album, the follow-up to which is due for release in 1992.
 Commenting on the signing, Richard Branson, chairman of the Virgin Group of Companies, said:
 "The Rolling Stones are the greatest rock and roll band and I am honored that they have chosen Virgin Records. I first saw the group play as an 18-year-old in Hyde Park whilst I was handing out leaflets for Virgin's first mail-order record company. I don't think for a moment that I believed that 20 years later they would still be breaking records all over the world and signing to our record company. Everyone at Virgin is delighted and looking forward to working with the group for many years to come.
 The Rolling Stones added: "We are looking forward to a successful relationship with Virgin."
 Back catalog available to Virgin from 1993:
 "Sticky Fingers" "Sucking In the Seventies"
 "Exile on Main Street" "Tattoo You"
 "Goat's Head Soup" "Still Life"
 "It's Only Rock 'n Roll" "Undercover"
 "Made In the Shade" "Rewind"
 "Black and Blue" "Dirty Work"
 "Love You Live" "Steel Wheels"
 "Some Girls" "Flashpoint"
 "Emotional Rescue"
