The Rolling Stones’ former label, ABKCO Records, is joining the band’s 50th anniversary celebration by reissuing three classic Stones albums on clear 180 gram vinyl. I used to buy all the colored vinyl, but this is the absence of color.
The reissues, which will be available on May 28th, 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 tracks like ‘Sympathy for the Devil,’ ‘Street Fighting Man,’ ‘Gimme Shelter’ and ‘You Can’t Always Get What You Want.’
All three reissues are already available for pre-order on Amazon, where they’re going from $22 to $28.
