186-Track The Rolling Stones in Mono Box Presents Band's 1960s Output in Unsurpassed Audiophile Sound: Cut at Abbey Road Studios from New Flat-Transfer DSD Files Created by Bob Ludwig from the Original Analog Mono Master Tapes  

The Absolute Best-Sounding Version from Europe: 180g Vinyl LPs Pressed at GZ Media in the Czech Republic, One of World's Premier Pressing Plants

Following in the footsteps of the exceptional Beatles in Mono box set, "The Greatest Rock & Roll Band in the World," the Rolling Stones, finally get their mono due in the form of The Rolling Stones in Mono. Everything about this essential analog release is done to audiophile specifications. Cut at Abbey Road Studios by Sean Magee and Alex Wharton from new flat-transfer DSD files created from the original analog mono master tapes by renowned engineer Bob Ludwig, and pressed at GZ Media in the Czech Republic (one of the world's premier pressing plants), this is how the early Stones should have always sounded on LP. Now that they do, accept no substitute. Comprising all of the group's U.K. and U.S. releases from the 1960s – from 1964's The Rolling Stones through 1969's Let It Bleed – every album boasts faithfully recreated original mono replica sleeves. In addition, The Rolling Stones in Mono includes the new Stray Cats, a 24-track collection of A- and B-sides plus EP tracks from the era. In total, 56 of the 186 songs have not been heard in mono since the advent of the digital age. A 48-page lie-flat book and robust packaging rounds out a set Stones fans have been craving for decades.

The Rolling Stones in Mono covers the formative years of the British legends. During this era, most rock and pop recordings were originally recorded in mono, with stereo often an afterthought, dealt with only following the completion of the original (mono) version of a given track.  In short, mono reigned and this was, indeed, the case for the Rolling Stones during the period. While typical playback systems of the time were less than sophisticated, the original mono recordings, especially as heard through quality components, were of the highest audio quality and had a powerful and 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."
 
Rolling Stone senior editor David Fricke, in his 5,000-word essay that accompanies the set, writes, "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." His commentaries are included with the vinyl and CD box sets as part of a 4-color deluxe 48 page lie flat book that features numerous rare photos by renowned photographer Terry O'Neill. The 16 LPs or 15 CDs are housed in the original full color album jackets that fit along with the book into a one piece specially crafted box.

Included in the box: The Rolling Stones (UK, 1964), 12 X 5 (1964), The Rolling Stones No. 2 (UK, 1965), The Rolling Stones Now!
