To commemorate Let It Bleed’s 50th anniversary, the Rolling Stones have announced a massive box set. Originally released in 1969, the multi-platinum album is best remembered for the brooding romantic tune, Gimme Shelter and the honky-tonk classic, Love In Vain.
The collection’s highlights are a new reissue of the title track, remastered versions of the album in both stereo and mono, plus a replica of the Honky Tonk Women/You Can’t Always Get What You Want seven-inch single.
The box set also includes three hand-numbered, replica-signed lithographs, a full-colour poster – featuring restored art from Decca Records’ original 1969 package – and an 80-page hardcover book. The latter is filled with essays – by music journalist David Fricke – and previously unreleased photos snapped by Ethan Russel, the band’s tour photographer at the time.
The Let It Bleed box set arrives 1 November via ABKCO Records. For more details, head over to abkco.com.
