Twin collections
crammed with more remastered LPs than you can count on both hands and feet

ABKCO Records and Universal Music Group have joined forces
to offer two vinyl box set collections spanning over 40 years of the Rolling
Stones’ career.  The box sets include 23 original studio albums, two “Big
Hits” collections as well as two rare EPs. They will be released on November 22
in the U.K. and November 23
in the U.S. and Canada as limited
edition/numberedThe Rolling Stones
1964-1969 and The
Rolling Stones 1971-2005 Vinyl Box Sets
 – see below for each
box’s listing of titles.

 

Worth noting in particular: The Rolling Stones
1964-1969 Vinyl Box Set
 chronologically
encompasses the Stones’ early U.K. releases. The set
includes nine re-mastered Rolling Stones studio albums, two remastered EPs,
plus two “Big Hits” collections. It’s the first vinyl reissue in decades
for The Rolling Stones (EP), The Rolling StonesFive by Five (EP), The Rolling Stones No. 2Big Hits (High Tide and Green Grass) and Through the Past, Darkly (Big Hits Vol. 2). The first five titles in the set are presented
in their original mono format. Through the Past, Darkly (Big Hits Vol. 2)
is included with its original octagonal cover and artwork intact. Metamorphosis is also
included in the set; the album was first released in 1975 but is wholly
comprised of tracks recorded from the early-to-late sixties.

Jody Klein, ABKCO
Music and Records CEO, remarked, “With the current marketplace resurgence of
vinyl, these collections are certain to delight both long-standing Stones fans
as well as contemporary vinyl devotees. The quality of the pressings and the
care with which these historic releases have been remastered is breathtaking.”
