The Only Holiday Song You Need In Your Collection

(Reuters) Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards is reissuing his 1978 solo single "Run Rudolph Run" on iTunes just in time for the holidays, his spokeswoman said on Thursday.

The tune, popularized by Chuck Berry, will be sold on a two-for-one basis with Richards' more-recent rendition of Toots and the Maytals' "Pressure Drop."

The arrangement does not include the B-side of "Run Rudolph Run," Richards' cover of Jimmy Cliff's "The Harder They Come."

Richards recorded "Run Rudolph Run" in 1976. The "Pressure Drop" redo dates from a session in 2003, when he contributed the track "Careless Ethiopians" to the Grammy-winning Toots and the Maytals album "True Love."

The tunes will go on sale on December 11, a week before Richards turns 64.

UDATE (12/13/07): This single is not sold on a "two-for-one basis" as it states. I had to pay $.99 for each song.
