"Out of Time" is a song by the Rolling Stones, first released on their 1966 album "Aftermath" (UK version). A shorter alternative mix was released in the US in 1967 on the album "Flowers". A third version featuring only Mick Jagger's vocal (and the orchestration and backing vocals from Chris Farlowe's cover version plus a new female backing vocal) was released on the 1975 compilation album "Metamorphosis", which was created under the direction of former Stones manager Allen Klein and released on his ABKCO Records label. (Klein owned the rights to the pre-1971 Rolling Stones catalog.)

The song was most famously covered by Chris Farlowe, an English solo singer. Farlowe's single, produced by Jagger, peaked at number one in the UK Singles Chart on 28 July 1966 and stayed at the top for one week.

Song profile

The song was written by Mick Jagger and Keith Richards. Mick Jagger produced a version for Chris Farlowe, a fellow Immediate artist. It is distinctively known for its different versions. The first version, recorded in Los Angeles in March 1966, appeared on the UK version of 1966's "Aftermath" and featured a marimba part played by Brian Jones.

In this format “Out of Time” was 5:37 long. A shorter version of this recording appeared in the US on 1967’s "Flowers", and later on 1972’s "More Hot Rocks (Big Hits & Fazed Cookies) and 2012’s "GRRR!" super deluxe edition. The song then appeared on the 1975 ABKCO compilation album "Metamorphosis". This version was, in fact, the backing track from the Chris Farlowe version, only with a Mick Jagger lead vocal, recorded in London in April 1966 as a demo for Farlowe. The demo version was also released as a single in 1975, reaching #45 in the UK.
