Description

The Rolling Stones in Mono 16 Colored LP Box Set Features the Band's Entire 1960s Studio Output: Mastered by Bob Ludwig from DSD Transfers of the Original Master Recordings

Limited to 10,000 Copies Worldwide

This time, you can always get what you want. Featuring the band's entire studio output from the 1960s and spanning 14 albums, The Rolling Stones in Mono covers the formative years of "The Greatest Rock & Roll Band in the World." Pressed on colored vinyl and limited to 10,000 copies worldwide, the deluxe 16LP box set also includes Stray Cats (a 2LP record of every Stones studio track not on the official albums) and a 48-page book anchored by 5,000-word essay penned by former Rolling Stone scribe David Fricke. The LPs are housed in the original full-color album jackets that fit along with the book into a one-piece box. Everything from the group's debut (The Rolling Stones) to both U.S. and U.K. editions of Out of Our Heads and Aftermath to the watershed 1969 album Let It Bleed is presented in direct, you-are-in-the-room sound.

As Fricke writes in the book: "The Rolling Stones in Mono is the full studio account of that first decade of history and mayhem, newly remastered with unprecedented fidelity and revelatory detail." He isn't exaggerating. The Rolling Stones in Mono arrives mastered by Grammy Award-winning engineer Bob Ludwig at Gateway Mastering. Ludwig utilized Direct Stream Digital (DSD) transfers from the original master recordings. Lacquer cutting was performed at Abbey Road Studios by Alex Wharton and Sean Magee. The records were pressed on colored vinyl — a different color for each album  at GZ Vinyl in Europe. Teri Landi, ABKCO's Grammy Award-winning Chief Audio Engineer, oversaw the project.

For many listeners, this colored-LP edition of The Rolling Stones in Mono presents a second chance to own a set that quickly sold-out after its initial run on black vinyl in 2016. Copies currently sell for four figures on the secondary market. This set is also limited, so don't wait or you'll, as the Stones famously sang, be out of time.

More About Mono and the Rolling Stones

During ther 1960s, most rock and pop recordings were originally recorded in mono, with stereo often an afterthought. The original mono recordings, especially as heard through quality components, were of the highest audio quality and had a powerful, very direct impact.

"You felt you were in the room...listening to exactly what went down in the studio, no frills, no nothing," Keith Richards wrote in his autobiography, Life. "Rock was a completely new musical form," Mick Jagger explained in a 1995 Rolling Stone interview. "It hadn't been around for ten years when we started doing it... You felt like one of the chosen few, one of the only ones in the world who would get to play with this new toy. We had evangelical fervor." Late recording engineer Dave Hassinger explained how he mixed his '64-'66 work for the Stones in mono: "They always played together at the same time," Hassinger said. "They would run the parts down, work out the changes here and there, nail it down, then start recording."
