Spanning the era between 1963 and 1969, The Rolling Stones in Mono covers the formative years of “The Greatest Rock & Roll Band in the World.”  During this era, most rock and pop recordings were originally recorded in mono, with stereo often an afterthought, dealt with only following the completion of the original (mono) version of a given track.  In short, mono reigned and this was, indeed, the case for the Rolling Stones during the period. While typical playback systems of the time were less than sophisticated, the original mono recordings, especially as heard through quality components, were of the highest audio quality and had a powerful and very direct impact. "You felt you were in the room . . . listening to exactly what went down in the studio, no frills, no nothing," Keith Richards wrote in his autobiography, Life. "Rock was a completely new musical form," Mick Jagger explained in a 1995 Rolling Stone interview. "It hadn't been around for ten years when we started doing it . . . You felt like one of the chosen few, one of the only ones in the world who would get to play with this new toy. We had evangelical fervor."  Late recording engineer Dave Hassinger explained how he mixed his ’64-’66 work for the Stones in mono, "They always played together at the same time," Hassinger said. "They would run the parts down, work out the changes here and there, nail it down, then start recording."

The Rolling Stones in Mono was mastered by acclaimed GRAMMY award winning engineer Bob Ludwig at Gateway Mastering.

Execution a total mess

Reviewer: Rich McKinley
Sound is great, the mono you want, the tracklists you want. But what exactly is the point of both US and UK tracklists when all 186 tracks are thrown into one alphabetized lump, without any differentiation between the 15 individual albums they came from? Especially when there are many redundant tracks between the US and UK tracklists. With a similar (though smaller) Emmylou Harris box set, I was able to create separate folders for each individual album so I could play each album. I tried that with these Stones releases and that attempt is totally ignored and all 186 tracks remain as needles in one huge haystack. What a mess!!! If you are having some friends over to listen to the Stones, and you don't want to lose those friends, I would stick with the CDs, which actually sound pretty good too. Maybe one day I will burn the 186 FLAC tracks to individual DVDs for hi-rez play, and keep them in the stereo SACD cases. But I learned my expensive lesson. No more box set downloads for me EVER.
