This newly released double album comes in two versions: a colored vinyl and a black vinyl box the latter in only 50 numbered copies. The music that comes out is a mix of known outtakes from the 60s through 2005 in quite good quality. Lovers of vinyl and particular releases will love this product; in the label s words: for the first time on LP the definitive 1964-2005 collection of outtakes and alternate versions from studio reels and original acetates with 97 re-mastered tracks for vinyl. Some words on packaging, the box, inserts, inner sleeves and the discs themselves are beautiful and will certainly please any collector, however tracks sources are grossly in error and there are some mistakes on songs names too (You ve Got The Silver, We ve Had It All and the funny Have You See Your Mother, Lately) that make me wonder if the compiler was really a Stones connoisseur. Editing is questionable too on some cases, I personally don t like the merge of two outtakes coming from different times (Slave) into one, plus there is no reason to leave Long John Baldry announcing You Better Move On after Cops and Robbers since the song is not included; there is also a serious mistake at the end on Disc Twenty-one which is Almost Hear You Cry, miscalled Slippin Away. Minor things that, anyway, matter. On some tracks there are skips too (Loving Cup at the beginning). Soundwise the tracks having been remastered and actually there are some of them sounding real good like for instance Sway which is here presented with Keith Richards backing vocals at about the same level than Jagger lead vocals, I did not recall such good sounding stereo track anywhere else. So, despite the artistic beauty of this box set, it is also recommendable to collectors interested in good looking (and sounding) Stones releases.
