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

For the first time ever, all of the mono studio recordings released by The Rolling Stones in the 1960s will be available in one unique historic collection. The Rolling Stones In Mono is a 16 LP/15 CD box set with original brilliantly recorded mono versions of 14 studio albums plus a new collection of single and EP tracks. The set will contain a total of 186 tracks, 56 of which have never before been heard in mono since the advent of the digital age.

Packaged as 14 separate albums, including Stray Cats, a newly conceived collection of non-LP singles and EP tracks, The Rolling Stones In Mono contains key releases from the band's U.S. and U.K. discographies, organized to include every track from the era while minimizing catalog redundancies. Stray Cats, a single disc in the CD box set and a double album with the vinyl box set, ties up all loose ends, incorporating every '60s Rolling Stones track that isn't found on the other 14 albums, for a total of 24 tracks. It includes two versions of "Poison Ivy," Barrett Strong's 1959 hit "Money," as well as "Fortune Teller." Other rarities include "Con Le Mie Lacrime," a version of "As Tears Go By" sung in Italian, "Stoned" (the instrumental b-side of "I Wanna Be Your Man"), and the 1965 outtake of Otis Redding's "I've Been Loving You Too Long," now freed of the fake applause to disguise its studio origin when the track appeared on the 1966 LP Got Live If You Want It.

Spanning the era between 1963 and 1969, The Rolling Stones in Mono covers the formative years of "The Greatest Rock & Roll Band in the World." 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.

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/15 CDs are housed in the original full color album jackets that fit along with the book into a one piece specially crafted box.

The Rolling Stones in Mono was mastered by acclaimed Grammy award winning engineer Bob Ludwig at Gateway Mastering. For the project he utilized Direct Stream Digital (DSD) transfers from the original master recordings, with a sampling rate of 2,822,400. Lacquer cutting for vinyl was performed at Abbey Road Studios by Alex Wharton and Sean Magee. All vinyl box sets will be pressed on 180-gram vinyl. The Rolling Stones in Mono project has been overseen by Teri Landi, ABKCO's Grammy award winning Chief Audio Engineer.
