Coming Soon: Rolling Stones Mono Recordings Box Set

I very much like well-recorded and mastered mono recordings. A number of artists have released remastered versions of their early recordings from the days when mono was the norm, and the Rolling Stones are the next one to do so. At the end of September, they are releasing a 15-CD box set of their early mono recordings. (, Amazon UK)

This set covers their music through the 1969 Let it Bleed, and continues two versions of Out of Our Heads and Aftermath, since the US and UK releases were different. There is also a disc entitled Stray Cats, which, while no explanation is given, is probably a collection of non-album tracks, such as singles and EPs.

I’m looking forward to this.
