ABKCO Records is set to release The Rolling Stones in Mono box set on colored vinyl early next year.
The box set, which is packaged as 15 separate albums, contains key releases from the band’s U.S. and U.K. discographies.
Stray Cats, a 2-LP compilation exclusive within the vinyl box set, incorporates every 1960s Rolling Stones track that isn’t found on the other 14 albums. 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.”
In the 5,000-word essay that accompanies the set, David Frickie 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.”
A 4-color deluxed 48-page lie-flate book that comes along with the box set, features numerous rare photos by renowned photographer Terry O’Neill. The 16 LPs are housed in the original full color album jackets that fit along with the book into a one piece specially crafted box.
