The Rolling Stones Through the Past, Darkly (Big Hits, Vol. 2) on 180g Clear Vinyl LP
Meticulously Mastered from High-Res Files Sourced from the Original Master Tapes, and Plated and Pressed at QRP: Terrific-Sounding Vinyl LP Even Has Trademark Octagonal-Shaped Cover
Compilation of Mid- and Late-1960s Hits Loaded With Classic Staples: Includes "Paint It Black," "Jumpin' Jack Flash," "Honky Tonk Women"
Loaded with staple hits of the band's mid and late-1960s periods, Through the Past, Darkly (Big Hits, Vol. 2)
captures the Rolling Stones
at their apex while paying tribute to deceased co-founder Brian Jones
. The compilation picks up from where Big Hits: High Tide and Green Grass
leaves off, moving through the British group's psychedelic phase ("She's a Rainbow," "200 Light Years From Home") as well as still-relevant social commentary ("Street Fighting Man," "Paint It Black").
Meticulously mastered from high-res files sourced from the original master tapes, and plated and pressed on 180g LP at QRP, this clear-vinyl edition of
Through the Past, Darkly (Big Hits, Vol. 2) sounds terrific.
It far exceeds the fidelity found on CD and digital downloads. No analog
lover should be without it.
Sometimes, you can always get what you want.
In addition to now-classic songs such as the raw, rough-and-tumble anthem "Jumpin' Jack Flash," clever "Mother's Little Helper," and poignant ballad "Ruby Tuesday," the 1969 collection is notable for its inclusion of "Honky Tonk Women," a huge single at the time of the record's release. There's not a bad note or dull moment here. These are the songs that define generations.
Fans should note that it's also the last Stones
record on which Jones
' image appears. His epitaph graces the inside cover. This is the group's public goodbye to the fallen star.
