50th anniversary of "Let It Bleed"
The Rolling Stones have announced that they will be releasing a special box set of Let It Bleed on November 1 to mark the album's 50th anniversary.
The limited-edition box set will feature two LPs and two HybridSuper Audio CDs with remastered stereo and mono mixes by Bob Ludwig.
The package will also include a 7" replica single of "Honky Tonk Women" and "You Can't Always Get What You Want," in addition to an 80-page hardbound book containing several unpublished photos by Ethan Russell, and a poster.
The box set is rounded out with three 12" x 12" hand-numbered replica-signed lithographs.
The reissue will also be available as a standalone CD and LP, and digitally.
"When we did the first Let It Bleed remaster in 2002, our intention was to pay homage to the original work," said Ludwig. "When we did this new version, the purpose was to make it as great as it could possibly sound."
"If you listen on a good set of speakers or good headphones, you'll hear subtle things in the background that are now much more clear that were somewhat hidden before," he added
Let It Bleed peaked at No. 3 on the Billboard 200 and included classics like "Gimme Shelter," the title track, "Midnight Rambler" and "You Can't Always Get What You Want."
