Stones’ Vinyl? Yes Please.


ABKCO Records  is joining the band’s 50th anniversary celebration by reissuing three classic Stones albums on clear 180 gram vinyl.

The reissues, which will be available on May 28, are part of the company’s new campaign, ‘The Rolling Stones Clearly Classic,’ which promises songs “meticulously mastered from high-resolution audio files sourced from the original master tapes, assuring optimal sound quality that exceeds both conventional CD audio and digital downloads,” according to a press release.

The three albums — ‘Beggars Banquet,’ ‘Let It Bleed’ and ‘Hot Rocks 1964-1971′ — include some of the band’s most enduring tracks, like ‘Sympathy for the Devil,’ ‘Street Fighting Man,’ ‘Gimme Shelter’ and ‘You Can’t Always Get What You Want.’

The most successful record of the bunch, ‘Hot Rocks 1964-1971,’ features 21 of the band’s biggest hits. It was a huge sales hit when it came out in 1971, spending 243 consecutive weeks on the chart and eventually selling more than 12 million copies.
