Mick JaggerLost Mick Jagger solo tracks, including a forgotten collaboration with John Lennon, have been unearthed for an upcoming best of. The Very Best Of Mick Jagger will feature essential tracks from the rocker's four solo albums, as well as soundtrack recordings and three previously unreleased tunes.

The 17-track collection includes his Memo From Turner collaboration with Ry Cooder that featured on the Performance film soundtrack in 1970 and Golden Globe-winning tune Old Habits Die Hard, which appeared on 2004's Alfie soundtrack.

The compilation also features Jagger's collaborations with Lenny Kravitz, Bono and reggae great Peter Tosh and his Live Aid duet with David Bowie, Dancing In The Street.

But the highlight of the album is Jagger's 1973 collaboration with John Lennon, Too Many Cooks (Spoil The Soup), which was never released. The track, which Lennon produced, features Jack Bruce on bass and Harry Nilsson as a backing singer.

The album's two additional previously unreleased tracks are demos from Jagger's Wandering Spirit sessions with producer Rick Rubin, including the tune Charmed Life, which features the Rolling Stone's daughter Karis on backing vocals.

Jagger admits he's thrilled with the best of, which will hit stores in October: "It's a great thing to listen to since all the songs speak to a certain time and make things come alive for me."
