Brazil Brazilian 7" discography / London singles [1964-1975]

Rolling Stones Brazilian single - Route 66 London logoTwelve singles + one late EP were issued by London in Brazil, including a few exclusive couplings and some interesting variations.

The first single 'Route 66' / 'Carol' [7L-6009] from 1964 - the rarest of all Brazilian releases - is pretty unique in itself : with its distinctive yellow labels, it comes in the only official picture cover made for a London single. Moreover, two slightly different versions exist [different place for catalogue number on front, different back].

Odeon logoUntil 'Honky Tonk Women' [7L-6055], generic London labels depict a green/brown wave, then swap for a new circular design in green and purple for a few years, to end in plain yellow by 1973.

London / Odeon company sleeves logically follow these labels variations.

'Satisfaction' [7L-6016] is here exceptionally coupled with the great 'Mercy Mercy' penned by Don Covay.
Rolling Stones Brazilian single - SatisfactionThe record is first issued in mono and comes in a titled art sleeve, then in company sleeve. Note that some green PS also exist for it, but whether they are genuine or not can be questioned - see fakes page for more info.

Rolling Stones Brazilian single - Satisfaction - 70's reissueThis single will be reissued twice in stereo: on yellow labels in the 70's, then with complete new labels in CS in the 80's.

Apart from the exception of these first two, all the original singles will now be only distributed into company sleeves.
Again, beware of counterfeits, all these singles have been sold many times into fake PS - supposedly Paraguayan, Chilean, etc. - in the 2000's.

In 1966 / 1967, two singles were made out of the A-sides of the last 4 US singles.
Rolling Stones Brazilian single - You Can't Always Get What You WantThen 'Ruby Tuesday' [7L-6026] was coupled with 'Have You Seen Your Mother, Baby, Standing In The Shadow?' and 'Let's Spend The Night Together' remained unreleased on single, which is pretty unconventional.


'Dandelion' [7L-6036] was the A-side of the 'We Love You' single, but from 'Jumpin' Jack Flash' onwards, couplings followed the UK discography.

One exception though, with 'Sad Day' [S7L-6120] which found itself at the back of 'You Can't Always Get What You Want'.
