The Rolling Stones Sixties catalogue will be the subject of a new box set, due out this fall, that will compile mono versions of some of their most famous recordings.
The Rolling Stones in Mono will collect the group’s U.K. and U.S. releases from 1964’s The Rolling Stones through 1969’s Let It Bleed alongside a collection of singles and EP tracks dubbed Stray Cats. In total, the set will contain 186 songs, 56 of which have never been made available in mono since the digitalization of music. Record label ABKCO will issue several versions of the release on September 30th.
The physical editions of the collection will be available in either 15-CD or 16-LP configurations and will also contain a 48-page book containing a 5,000-word essay by Rolling Stone’s David Fricke and rare photos by Terry O’Neill. It will also come out digitally in a variety of formats: standard digital, mastered for iTunes and True HD.
