"Rarities 1971-2003" is a compilation album by The Rolling Stones that was released in 2005 worldwide by Virgin Records - as well as by the coffee-chain Starbucks in North America - and features a selection of rare and obscure material recorded between 1971 and 2003. The album peaked at #76 on the Billboard chart.

Consisting primarily of B-Sides, extended remixes and live recordings, "Rarities 1971-2003" marks the first time these recordings have been made available on an official stand-alone release by The Rolling Stones, after years of demand.

Several B-sides were included, such as "Fancy Man Blues", "Anyway You Look At It", "Wish I'd Never Met You", "Through the Lonely Nights", and the band's live rendition of "Let It Rock" from 1971.

Heavily-bootlegged rarities such as "Blood Red Wine" and "Claudine" still remain in the vaults, along with outtakes from famous album sessions such as "Beggars Banquet" and entire live shows from the Stones early 1970s. In the liner notes, lead singer Mick Jagger acknowledges the band's discretion at re-releasing what they consider to be lesser songs, hence, a partial explanation for some of the songs in absence on "Rarities 1971-2003". It should be noted that although the cover image is from 1978 (from the music video for "Respectable") it only shows the current four members of the band and does not feature bassist Bill Wyman, who was removed from the picture; the original color image can be seen in the booklet from "Forty Licks", showing him standing in the back behind Jagger and Richards.
