Product Description

Strictly limited edition 13 vinyl LP box set that encompasses the Stones' early UK releases. The box set includes nine remastered Rolling Stones studio albums, two remastered EPs, plus two 'Big Hits' collections. The first five titles in the set are presented in their original mono format, affording, for the first time in years. The inclusion of the band's original two Hits collections was mandated by the fact that UK album releases in that era most often did not include contemporaneously released hit singles.



Upper Manhattan, mid-1980s, an underfurnished railroad apartment. Three young men whose last meal was almost certainly noodle-based sit on overturned milk crates near a turntable. They're listening hard. To what? To a fixation: the first five Rolling Stones LPs in mono.

We weren't ridiculous. We weren't wrong. If you bought these records new at Sam Goody, you'd hear sound fit for a dog: old mono reprocessed into fake stereo, bassy in one speaker, trebly in the other, sloshed with reverb. If you got yourself around a used mono version, not so hard to find in those days -- especially of the sacramental "Out of Our Heads" -- you'd hear the band's greasy transmission, its full feckless assault, much more clearly.

We didn't have the British versions, though, some with different songs in a different order. We weren't that pro. We were 20 years too early. In a breathtaking all-vinyl boxed set, ABKCO has reissued the Stones' studio-album corpus up through 1969, and those that were originally mono (pre-"Aftermath") have been kept that way. Some of these probably sound as good as is currently possible. Simultaneously, Universal has released its own vinyl-only boxed set for the rest of the band's work, from "Sticky Fingers" to "A Bigger Bang." These will be more familiar to anyone who grew up with them: there was no mono-stereo issue here, no track-order scrambling between markets. They look and sound beautiful, using the best recent remastering and vinyl cutting. And here, cultured reader, would be the occasion to start building your defense of the undervalued "Goats Head Soup." -- The New York Times, November 26, 2010

I agree with the reviewer above re: the packaging. It's not what it could be. That said, the reason I bought it was for the sound, and in all honesty, it was like listening to the albums for the first time. I heard things I hadn't realized were there. The vinyl is so quiet, it's really stunning. If you're on the fence about making the purchase, I can honestly say that it far exceeded my expectations.

I just received both of the box sets today and I have to say I'm enormously relieved. The negative reviews of the packaging of these had scared me. Let's face it: this is quite a bit of money here, especially during the holidays. And, if you delay, you wonder will they still be available into the New Year? Will the price be the same? It's all kind of a gamble, isn't it?? The price could go down, but with the Stones I don't think it will go down much. (Both boxes are numbered on the bottom, but they don't indicate out of how many total printed. I presume it is a big number, but I expect the world-wide demand for these will be significant.)

First, let me comment on the packaging. I think it is pretty good. It's about as good as one can reasonably expect. At least half of these are fold-opens ("gatefolds," I believe, is the term). You get a lot of classic visuals here. The covers themselves bring back memories. The "matte" finish of the cardboard actually seems like step up to me from the shiny cheap stuff; these look just a little higher-end to me than the original releases, sans the "novelty" items like the 3-D on Satanic Majesties or the zipper on Sticky Fingers, or the cuts-outs on Some Girls. But, overall, these are nicely manufactured covers, printed on cardboard at least as thick as the original releases. Most of you reading this are serious vinyl collectors, so, like me, you will immediately get these into plastic LP cover protectors. I HIGHLY recommend this, as otherwise these covers will soon show abrasion wear if you pull them out and stuff them back in with any frequency at all. Yes, all your albums will still fit in the boxes after you put them in the covers. It is a tight fit, but they are definitely protected this way better than without the covers.

I am very happy that they finally released the Stones albums on 180 grams. Although others may say that the packaging is bad, I really do not feel that it is that terrible (save for the unoriginal covers of Their Satanic Majesties Request and Beggar's Banquet). I am happy that the two EPs were included, and that these and the pre-Aftermath albums were in their dedicated mono versions. And everything does sound absolutely fantastic, although you can tell that there was a BIT of a digital process undertaken in re-mastering these albums and whereas all the mono albums, the two Big Hits collections and so on sound great, the Aftermath-Metamorphosis studio album releases are KIND of close to the SACD 2002 releases (although they sound much better on vinyl, and it seems that some of the tracks on these stereo albums even are mono, because Lady Jane and What to Do off Aftermath seem to be in mono, as do a lot of the tracks off of Big Hits 1). Finally, The Rolling Stones are given true audiophile quality, and Ruby Tuesday is once again in its original version with the overdubbed choruses intact!!!! (which the 2002 releases changed oddly enough..). I am very sad that everything that was once in mono wasn't re-issued here in mono, as I REALLY would have loved a completely mono Aftermath, Between the Buttons, Their Satanic Majesties Request, Beggar's Banquet, and Let it Bleed. But then again, many do argue that the stereo versions of these select albums are superior to their mono brethren. But beggars cant be choosers (for now), and the set is really pretty damn good nonetheless!!

Why oh why can't the Stones have a Derek Taylor or a Neil Aspinall? I was so excited to see this reissue of the original mono Lps on heavyweight vinyl, I could barely sleep at night until I bought it, but when I finally got it, I realized that I didn't need it. Not to disparage the fine music here! The Stones roared out of the gate in 1963 with "Come On" and never stopped being great right through the 1984 B-Side "Think I'm Going Mad," and anybody that tells you otherwise is just being a stinker. And I will say that I appreciate that some effort went into the project, and it's wonderful that vinyl is still being pressed, but who oversaw this release? It's as sloppy as those cheap trade magazines that the Postman tucks in with your mail. A little care could have made this so much more. Sure, it sounds fine, but were the original master tapes used, or some other source? What am I listening to here? I have 1st or early pressings of everything in the box, and I have to say that the originals sound better in every instance, and the well-known cold-stop of "Tell Me" on the 1st album has been faded out here, so it can't be cut straight from the the master tape. Why not give us a little paragraph somewhere explaining the remastering process?

The Beatles haven't thrown meatless bones like these to their fans since the first CD pressings back in the '80s. Even the Monkees know that we like liner notes, extra photos, and whatever session information you can give us. Who is in charge here? The slimmest of booklets added to the box could have gone a long way toward redeeming this release. And the sleeves for these albums, several of which are bona fide classics of the form, have all been hastily re-created from scratch. Where is the love?
