EDITORS PLEASE NOTE: THIS EDIT CONTAINS MATERIAL WHICH WAS ORIGINALLY 4:3 The Rolling Stones released a career-spanning digitally re-mastered back catalogue on the Apple iTunes Store on Wednesday (June 19) as part of their 50th anniversary celebrations. The new iTunes release chronicles the British group's entire history. The Rolling Stones - Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Ronnie Wood and Charlie Watts - emerged alongside the Beatles in the early 1960s. The Stones kicked off their biggest tour in six years in Los Angeles last month after a sellout mini-tour of Europe and the United States last year. The group has sold more than 200 million albums worldwide and toured 40 times, mostly across Europe and North America in the 1960s and 1970s.
