The Rolling Stones
Considered by many to be the jewel in the crown of The Rolling Stones’ unbeatable 1960’s albums, ‘Let It Bleed’ saw the band wrap up a turbulent decade with an album that uncannily reflected the times and signposted the uncertain 1970s. Rightly regarded as one of the most important rock albums of all time, the album that brought us ‘Gimme Shelter’, ‘You Can’t Always Get What You Want’, ‘Midnight Rambler’ and the title track ‘Let It Bleed’, celebrates its 50th anniversary with this beautiful limited, hand-numbered Deluxe Edition. Included in the package are 2X 180-gram LPs in stereo and mono with restored original album art, 2 X Hybrid SACDs in stereo and mono housed in custom 12” sleeve, a 7” of the in-era single ‘Honky Tonk Women’ / ‘You Can’t Always Get What You Want’ in mono with original picture sleeve. There’s also a beautiful 80-page hardcover book with essay by David Fricke and never-before-seen photos and three 12”x12” hand-numbered lithographs, a full-colour poster. All of the original audio has been remastered by Bob Ludwig at Gateway Mastering.
