Remixing his solo hits for a new best-of package convinced Sir Mick Jagger to revisit an album he recorded with producer Rick Rubin, but vowed never to release.

Jagger and Rubin recorded "King King" with blues band The Red Devils in a day during the sessions that became the rocker's 1992 album "Wandering Spirit".

But Jagger was unhappy with the end results and decided not to release the album - much to Rubin's surprise.

Rubin recently urged Jagger to reconsider. - KL/WN/ES
