REVIEW:

The release of the Stones In Mono box in late 2016 has arisen interest on the Stones early recordings with their mix that was lost in the transaction to stereo in many cases; however there are many true stereo tracks still missing and from collectors point of view there will be the need of some focused release in this field, but Abkco and the Stones will have to agree first, something hard to predict. So here come bootleggers that propose interesting compilations like this one that is supposed to be a companion to the mono box collecting all of the available stereo master tapes from 1964 plus several rare, unreleased and alternate stereo mixes from 1965-1967. All having been carefully edited from the cleanest and widest sources. This is the definitive collection of early stereo Stones. Some of these songs come from old London ( so called MFSL) mixes and ABKCO 2002 re-mixes. The remarkable thing to say on this compilation is its great sound quality, balanced on all tracks with no hiss whatsoever.

Ever since 1964 in Chicago the Stones were recorded on multi tracks and some of the songs recorded for their 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 was released remastered on the In Mono box set.  Everybody Needs Somebody To Love is the only stereo track sourced from vinyl, not released on cd, this being the 5 minutes plus longer version that appeared on the UK no.2 LP; The Last Time that is 15 seconds shorter than the mono mix presents a high quality recording, the Satisfaction mix here is the wider stereo one while Play with Fire has lead guitar and harpsichord on the left channel and tambourine/percussions on the right channel. Paint It Black is 20 seconds shorter in stereo rather than in mono. On 19th Nervous Breakdown there is no distortion at the beginning, On We Love You we can here the chain clanking at the beginning going from left to right channel .. 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 excellent audio quality.
