REVIEW:

Here is the third compilation that has come out in a matter of one week from Sound Blokes label and this is indeed another great one; in the compiler words:

“All the Stones stereo mixes from Chess and RCA are believed to be included here and in the best available sound. People are still trading around crappy old bootlegs made from multi-generation cassettes and there is no reason for that! So here is everything in one place and sounding better than ever.”

There is no doubt that this job could be called the definitive reference one regarding early Stones stereo masters, all tracks are pristine sounding with no hiss and great channel separation.
“This release was carefully compiled from the best available sources. All tracks have the cleanest sound and widest stereo image possible. Many of these mixes are officially unreleased or currently unavailable, inexplicably.” (ask Abkco for comments, I would add). On Disc One Don’t Lie To Me and Heart Of Stone are alternate stereo mixes, like on Disc Two Satisfaction, Get Off Of My Cloud, Think, Paint It Black and the last version of 19th Nervous Breakdown which has alternate vocals. The Stones in cooperation with Abkco gave collectors the mono mixes of their early songs some years ago, about time they now devote their attention to the stereo mixes providing all the available stereo tracks to the always hungry Stones collectors, meanwhile this compilation will help quench such thirst. The difference between mono and stereo mixes is not just the latter being on 2 different channels, but that there may be various diverse stereo takes, as proved here especially on Disc Two where there are different takes of Satisfaction, 19th Nervous Breakdown, Get Off Of My Cloud and Heart Of Stone not to mention the alternate takes of songs already known in their stereo shape like Think and tracks that have just appeared on bootlegs like Looking Tired and Stewed And Keefed. Yet another valuable release from this label that left us wondering what could be next.



The best toys are the ones that are both educational and multi-purposeful.
