I want to sleep with it in the bed beside me, that's how much I love it. Location: California Central Coast. Barnyard Symphony , Jun 8, OptimisticGoat likes this. Location: Bretagne. I find conflicting reports on the forum as to whether or not Beggar's and LIB were dedicated mono mixes. Some maintain that only Sympathy For The Devil had a dedicated mono mix.
Others say that Street Fighting Man was also but that's it all. So what's the score people? Purple Jim , Jun 11, I think that the consensus is that LIB is a fold-down but an excellent fold down that makes it worth picking up.
It's a great mix of that song. The album is worth picking up for that mix alone. Anyone else care to weigh in? Wish I could have afforded another one. Grab it before it's too late. My review is at this time, the only one relevant. I'm a audio lunatic, I own over 2, vinyl. Most are originals, some Hoffman masterings, some Parlophone Beatles lps etc. I would never get rid of this set. I play it quite often, and I love it. Good luck. Arrived very securely packaged. Records, all except for one, were in MINT condition, and that one blemish is superficial and makes no difference to the sound.
Full marks to the supplier "from the Vault". The LPs give opulent clear musical sound, 45s not so good shallow grooves, some distortion.
Major disappointment is - and this is owing to the use of the British released versions without exception - that you don't get the US released 12 X 5 LP, which here in Australia was the second RS LP to be released. In consequence you miss out altogether on that lovely song "Congratulations" and three others.
Nor, of course, because again the British variants have been used without exception, do you get that amazing classic "The Spider and the Fly" that went out only on the US version of "Out of our Heads". There are a few other losses from that early period prior to Aftermath, enough to have made up an entire LP. I would rather have seen those classics included than the rubbish album "Metamorphosis", which the Stones themselves never wanted released. That album is a waste of space and the few tracks on it worth issuing could have been placed on another disc along with the lost classics mentioned above.
Well, now we've come full circle in StonesLand. What to think of these two Box sets, especially after Christmas ?? The Box, as they described, just had a tad blemish but when I opened it ALL of the albums jackets were damaged on top But, the vinyl was beautiful and flat. But, again, the pressings themselves looked great.
So with that I ordered another box, brand new this time, from an alternate Amazon site. Amazon really needs to get better on the packaging of fragile items like vinyl-there is simply no excuse in putting a 12 pound box inside a flimsy cardboard box with a couple of air pillows!! So we'll see if the other boxes come in unscathed. Now, in tracking down another replacement for the box I stumbled onto various Stones sites that had lots of information going back to the Mobile Fidelity Box from What I found out made it clear that this box set, apart from the one, which is totally separate as far as it's not nearly as desirable as the Abkco early box to alot of us collectors, is something special due to the work Abkco did back in , in going through their tape library and redoing the catalog as best as they could.
I believe that a box like this will Never be released again due to the rapidly changing technology for playing music. In fact, it's pretty amazing that it came out at all in this day and age. This current Vinyl revival is not going to last forever, and once this is out of print, you could pretty much kiss it goodbye! The Major companies Hate to put this kind of work into a release and that's why there are so few of these in the history of box sets.
There was the Germany issued 'The Rolling Stones Story' back in the 80's, but that was far from comprehensive as it used various album issues from Europe and included alot of the fake stereo garbage tracks.
And then there was the Mobile Fidelity in the 80's which took most of it's albums from the American configurations, but as we know the original British configurations seem more satisfying.

The mono mixes are to the best of my knowledge ALL fold downs.
Good folds, but folds nonetheless. That was another great thing about the cleanup and reissue, the Chess stuff became widely available for the first time in real stereo.
And some of it is really great sounding. Consider that for early Stones, the Chess stuff was recorded in real stereo, folded down to mono by Decca, sent to the U. So the "reprocessed for stereo" on the early U. Plus some wierd phase shifting To get an original of Beggars Banquet sounding stellar, use Feitchers "platter speed" iPhone App to speed your platter speed up to 34rpm.
It's a revelation, apart from "Sympathy" which now really cooks and burns, check out Stray cat blues and No expectations.
Mick must be a little bit embarrased now about Stray cat blues. When was the last time that was played live??? There is an anecdote about the or maybe earlier tour, Keith or Ronny suggested doing Stray cat blues for a few of the smaller club shows, Micks response, "there is no fucking way we are doing that one!!. I'm ashamed to say that it's too early in the morning for me to locate a later airing, but it may have been played at a club show after that - more energetic fans can suss it out.
Mick has upgraded the lyrics so that the girl is now 16 instead of 13 - I'm sure that these days she sports a thong and a lumbar tattoo as well. The L'Olympia version is up on YouTube, officially permitted. The world has changed a bit since I saw the Stones in , and on their pre-show mix tape was an extended version of Sexy MF by Prince, which the engineer turned up quite loud.
I was having a great time being pummeled by the bass line when I heard people behind me complaining that it was an inappropriate song to play. I turned around to see the source of this buzzkill, and noted that it was a family with two pre-teen children. Yet somehow, pre-teens and teenagers still find their way into trouble, now at statistically high rates. Blame it on the Stones, though few kids choose a Stones tongue-logo tattoo.
Also,Englands Newest Hitmakers and 12 x5 are the only "folded over" mono mixes? Unless we're talking bootlegs Englands Newest Hitmakers was recorded mostly at Regent sound in London and is all dedicated mono.
