LONDON (AP) _ Early radio recordings of the Rolling Stones, hidden away in BBC archives for nearly 35 years, could hit the airwaves again if the British Broadcasting Corp. and the rock superstars agree.

The BBC, which has the 1963-65 recordings in its archives, said today that it is discussing with the Rolling Stones the possibility of release. The broadcast network owns the recordings and the group owns the performances.

The Independent newspaper, whose reporter listened to ``20 tracks and assorted interviews'' from the Stones, said they were ``fascinating, raw, earthy blues and rock 'n roll, with moments of surprising tenderness.''

There is a 1965 version of ``Satisfaction,'' which the newspaper described as quite different from the released version, and unreleased tracks including ``Fanny Mae,'' ``Cops and Robbers'' which had been recorded by Bo Diddley, and two Chuck Berry standards, ``Roll Over Beethoven'' and ``Memphis, Tennessee.''

``It is astonishing that no one has thought to release this before. It is outstanding _ raw, unsophisticated and compelling,'' John Willan, head of music at BBC Worldwide, was quoted as saying.
