The Very Best of Mick Jagger is a compilation album that was released worldwide on 1 October 2007 and the following day in the United States on WEA/Rhino Records. This 17-track release is the first ever overview of Mick Jagger's solo career.
"Charmed Life", recorded while Jagger was working on Wandering Spirit with producer Rick Rubin. Jagger had sketched it out (with his daughter Karis Jagger on backing vocals), but then decided the track didn't fit with the rest of the album. The version on Very Best is remixed by producer Ashley Beadle. The song was also released as a promo single with various remixes, and reached the Top 20 on Billboard's Hot Dance Singles chart in early 2008.
A special edition with DVD was also released with more than 72 minutes of content, including an extensive interview with Mick Jagger from early/mid-2007, nine videos, and extras.
Jagger has promoted the album through interviews including a special for Rolling Stone, a comprehensive Q&A with fans on the BBC web site and TV appearances. He also re-launched his web site with audio, video, photos and more information about this compilation and his solo work in general.
The album debuted in the British chart at No. 57 with sales of nearly 4,000 copies and in the American chart at No. 77 selling 11,846 copies during the first week.
