The Rolling Stones Singles 1966-1971 Vinyl Set

ABKCO Records’ The Rolling Stones Singles 1966-197 will be released on February 2nd 2024, this limited-edition collection is a follow-up to the acclaimed Singles 1963-1966 set and promises to be an essential addition to any Rolling Stones aficionado’s collection.

This meticulously crafted set includes 18 faithfully reproduced 7” vinyl singles and extended play records, showcasing the evolution of “The World’s Greatest Rock ‘n’ Roll Band” during a pivotal era. The tracks, originally released by Decca, London Records, and ABKCO Records, have been remastered by the 13-time Grammy Award-winning engineer Bob Ludwig. The discs, manufactured by Third Man Pressing in Detroit, ensure the highest quality for the discerning listener.

Accompanying the Box Set is a 32-page book, brimming with extensive liner notes by Stones authority Nigel Williamson. The book offers a dive into the band’s history, featuring rare photos and ephemera that capture the essence of the Stones’ journey. Additionally, the set includes a set of five photo cards and a poster, all housed in a sturdy hard-shell box.

The collection spans a crucial period in the Stones’ history, from the experimental and psychedelic sounds of “We Love You” and “She’s a Rainbow” to the rootsy, blues-based rock of “Honky Tonk Women” and “Wild Horses.” It also marks the transition from guitarist and founding member Brian Jones to Mick Taylor, a significant shift in the band’s lineup and sound.

Highlights of the set include rare B-sides like “Long Long While,” “Who’s Driving Your Plane,” and “Child Of The Moon.” Mono mixes of “We Love You” and “Dandelion,” exclusive to the single release, are also featured. The set faithfully reproduces the controversial “Street Fighting Man”/”No Expectations” single sleeve art, withdrawn by the Stones’ US label following the 1968 Democratic National Convention.

The collection doesn’t shy away from including tracks that were released later than the 1966-1971 timeframe, such as “I Don’t Know Why,” “Out Of Time,” and the stereo mix of “Honky Tonk Women,” which were 45s released around 1975-76. Even the 2003 remixes of “Sympathy For The Devil” by The Neptunes and Fat Boy Slim, originally part of a Super Audio CD, find their place in this vinyl set.

ABKCO Records, home to the Stones’ catalog from their inception to early 1971, ensures that this collection is not just a set of records but a piece of musical history. From the iconic albums like “Beggars Banquet” and “Let It Bleed” to the soundtrack of “Performance,” this set covers a broad spectrum of the Stones’ early work.
