VIDEO: The Rolling Stones release studio album vinyl box set

The Rolling Stones can be seen in a new video unboxing the just-released box set, “The Studio Albums Vinyl Collection 1971-2016.”

The project features 15 records – from 1971’s “Sticky Fingers” to 2016’s “Blue & Lonesome” – pressed on heavyweight 180-gram black vinyl in an individually-numbered, limited-edition package that presents the records in faithful and intricate original packaging replications, including the original Andy Warhol-designed “Sticky Fingers” album with a working zipper and a hidden image underneath.

Spread across 20 LPs, all 15 records have been remastered and cut at half-speed at Abbey Road Studios by engineer Miles Showell from vinyl specific original tape transfers designed to get the very best possibly sound from the format. This process involves the master source being played back at precisely half its recorded speed while the cutting lathe is similarly turned at half the desired playback speed – allowing the cutting head twice the time to cut the intricate groove while providing more audio accuracy than ever before.

Each album includes a download card for HD digital redemption of the catalog and includes a numbered certificate of authentication.

The Rolling Stones are currently playing dates on their No Filter European tour, which opened at Croke Park in Dublin, Ireland on May 17; the 14-show series marks band’s first appearances in the UK in five years, while stops in Germany, France and the Czech Republic will precede the trek’s finale in Warsaw, Poland on July 8.
