To celebrate the 30th anniversary of its initial release, The Rolling Stones’ much-acclaimed 1994 release, Voodoo Lounge, is to be reissued in a variety of vinyl and digital formats on July 12 via Polydor/UMR.

The 30th anniversary reissue sees the album pressed on a 2LP set with one record pressed on red vinyl and the other in yellow vinyl. A limited edition (D2C-only) adds a white vinyl 10-inch which includes four bonus tracks previously unissued on vinyl. These were on the various CD singles back in the day and they are “I’m Gonna Drive,” “So Young,” “Jump On Top Of Me,” and “The Storm.” Like the album, these were all Jagger-Richards compositions, all but one written at Windmill Lane Studios in Dublin at the end of recording sessions for Voodoo Lounge.

The band’s first album without original bass player Bill Wyman, Voodoo Lounge sold well, reaching either gold or platinum status in several countries, but failed to produce a US top 40 hit. The album’s trailer single “Love Is Strong” did peak at No. ⁠14 in the UK, and the anthemic “You Got Me Rocking” (which reached No. ⁠23 in the same country) became a staple on most subsequent Stones tours.

Voodoo Lounge also received a raft of positive reviews, with the U.K.’s Vox magazine declaring that the album’s strongest tracks were filled with “echoes of the band’s halcyon days”, most notably 1972’s Exile on Main Street and 1978’s Some Girls and concluded by saying Voodoo Lounge “reminds us why we liked the Stones in the first place.” The album also went on to win the inaugural Grammy Award for Best Rock Album in 1995.

Current Blue Note Records label boss Don Was co-produced the album. Although not joining the band officially, Darryl Jones took Bill Wyman’s place as the group’s regular bassist, at the suggestion of drummer Charlie Watts.
