Rolling Stones reissue half-speed mastered vinyl editions of ten albums

Selection of albums get the half-speed mastered vinyl treatment

The Rolling Stones will reissue ten of their albums as standalone half-speed mastered pressings in May.

The selection includes two albums from the 1970s (It’s Only Rock N’ Roll, Black and Blue), all their long players from the eighties (Emotional Rescue, Tattoo You, UndercoverDirty Work and Steel Wheels) and then three of the four studio albums they’ve issued since then (Voodoo Lounge, Bridges to Babylon and A Bigger Bang).

All the albums are pressed on 180g black vinyl and have been mastered at half-speed at Abbey Road Studios (if you’d like to know more about the half-speed mastering process, then check out this SDE post). The last three albums in this batch are all double albums, hence the slightly higher price.

All of these albums were previously available as part of the Studio Albums 1971-2016 vinyl box that was issued in 2018, but this is the first time they’ve been available separately, where you can pick and choose.

These will all be issued on 26 June 2020 (was 8 May). Townsend Music are offering all ten albums (13 records in total) in a bundle at a special price.
