REVIEW:

Here is another compilation of early 60 stereo Stones tracks, ever since 1964 in Chicago the Stones were recorded on multi tracks and some songs recorded for the Stones no.2 album have even been released in stereo; while some are well known and heavily bootlegged, others are kind of unique. It must be said that for instance the songs recorded at Chess Records were all mixed in stereo and then folded down for mono release, simply true dedicated mono mixes of some songs do not exist   (If You Need Me).  The Last Time that is 15 seconds shorter than the mono mix presents a high quality recording though still marred by some unwanted noise, also Paint It Black is 20 seconds shorter in stereo rather than in mono. On 19th Nervous Breakdown there is no distortion at the beginning, the Satisfaction mix here is the wider stereo one with lead guitar and harpsichord on the left channel and tambourine/percussions on the right channel. Everybody Needs Somebody To Love is the only stereo vinyl not released on cd, this being the longer version that appeared on the UK no.2 LP; on We Love You we can here the chain clanking at the beginning going from left to right channel. Mother’s Little Helper can be found in wide stereo only on the German s Aftermath Polygram version and on the Japanese version of Hort Rocks 1 on cd, while WhatTo Do is found in stereo on Japan More Hot Rocks as well as on the German version of Aftermath. On Honky TonkWomen we get the cowbells and open G guitar on the far right, second lead guitar on the left channel, that can be found on the Japanese version of Hot Rocks 2. A note on Abkco releases: e arlier pressings of the ABKCO Hot Rocks CD have Heart of Stone in stereo, as well as the Regent (organ intro) version of Time Is On My Side. Later pressings have a version of Heart of Stone with the first few notes in stereo (albeit in much lower fidelity) followed by the mono mix, as well as the Chess (guitar intro) version of Time Is On My Side (in mono). The SACDs have what seems to be a new stereo remix. This is yet another nice underground compilation getting official and underground release which have the common quality of being of a very nice audio quality.
