Sucking in the Seventies

Sucking in the Seventies is the fourth official compilation album by The Rolling Stones, released in 1981. As the successor to 1975's Made in the Shade, it covers material from 1974's It's Only Rock'n Roll to 1980's Emotional Rescue.

Many of the album tracks were remixed or re-edited for this release, and some rarer material was also included. "Everything Is Turning To Gold" was previously released as "Shattered"'s B-Side in late 1978 in the U.S. only; "If I Was A Dancer (Dance Pt. 2)" is a longer and different mix and containing different lyrics than "Dance (Pt. 1)", the opening track on Emotional Rescue, which, despite this compilation's title, was relased in 1980; and "When The Whip Comes Down" is presented in an otherwise unreleased live version, recorded in Detroit on the 1978 tour.

Interestingly, it doesn't include "Miss You", the major hit from the period it covers.

Released in the spring of 1981, as Tattoo You was nearing its completion, Sucking in the Seventies reached #15 in the U.S., going gold, but failed to chart in the UK.

In 2005, Sucking in the Seventies was remastered and reissued by Virgin Records.
