"Stoned" was released in the UK by The Rolling Stones on the Decca label on 1 November 1963, as the B-side to their version of "I Wanna Be Your Man".[1] Recorded in early October 1963, it was the first song released to be credited to "Nanker Phelge", and the band's first original composition. Derivative of "Green Onions" by Booker T. & the M.G.s, this bluesy instrumental was not released in the United States on "moral grounds"[2] until its inclusion on Singles Collection: The London Years in 1989.[3] It also appeared on the 1973 UK-only compilation No Stone Unturned, and on Singles 1963-1965 (2004).[1]
