Forty Licks is a double compilation album by The Rolling Stones. Four new songs are included on the second disc. The album was a commercial success, as it reached No. In , the Rolling Stones had an acrimonious break-up with their former manager, Allen Klein , and their former record label, Decca Records who licensed their recordings to London Records for release in the US. Because of the terms of their former contract, all of their pre recordings were all under Klein's control, up to and including Let it Bleed , some tracks that made it on Sticky Fingers and Exile on Main Street , as well as outtakes, unreleased recordings, and live recordings. The Stones would immediately form Rolling Stones Records as a result, that gave them control over all of their subsequent recordings. As a result, any career retrospectives tended to be divided into two eras: prior to the split, and after the split.
