Topic: ABKCO and Masters Return to archive

mattb It has been reported that ABKCO will be reissuing everything in both US and UK formats from the master recordings. I thought they didn't have access to the real original masters and that's why the CD's have sounded awful. Does anyone know the full and true story?
05-30-02 10:45 AM
Cardinal Ximinez Well, all I can say is that if ABKCO is involved, it can't mean anything good for us. I'm sure that they will find some way to screw things up.
05-30-02 12:19 PM
marko They will release all 60ies record,remastered versions,and
thas about 22 cds,,,,
05-30-02 04:57 PM
Honky Tonk Man They cant release both Decca and London records though can they? Surely that would create more mess? What we do need are the things like the Decca version of "Aftermath" with its 14 tracks.
05-31-02 01:11 AM
padre What you need is Mickboy's remaster of Aftermath with all the goodies plus loads of more with sonic quality that cannot be beaten!
05-31-02 02:23 AM
marko Yes they will release both US/UK versions!Hold on to your
cash!
05-31-02 05:45 AM
MRD8 According to an article in todays USA TODAY the ABKCO remasters will all be released on August 20th...all 22 U.K. and American albums...they were remastered by Bob Ludwig and will play on regular CD players as well as SACD players...they say they are an amazing upgrade...we'll see! I bet Aftermath and Satanic Majesties aren't as good as Mickboy's remasters, wanna bet?

Jaxx Stones Plan Massive Reissue Campaign
By PAUL CANTIN -- JAM! Showbiz

Just in time for their upcoming tour, The Rolling Stones will have their seminal '60s work re-issued on revamped compact discs.



ABKCO Records, which controls the group's releases through the '60s and up to (but not including) 1971's "Sticky Fingers", unveiled plans for their "Rolling Stones Remastered" series: 22 albums, including such titles as "Let It Bleed," "Out Of Our Heads," "December's Children," "Beggars Banquet," "12x5", and "Rolling Stones Now."

That portion of the group's catalogue includes such classic cuts as "Sympathy For The Devil," "Under My Thumb," "Street Fighting Man," "Mother's Little Helper," "The Last Time", and "(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction."

All 22 albums will be released Aug. 20, and distributed by Universal Music.

Each disc will be double-encoded with regular CD audio and Super Audio audiophile quality, and can be played on either type of equipment, the company said in a press release.

The albums involved in the reissue program were first put out on CD in 1986, although there have been calls from fans to upgrade the sound quality to modern standards.

"Improvements in technology had only been incremental since then so we didn't feel there was a compelling reason to go back to the market with these classic albums -- until now," ABKCO's Jody Klein said in a press release.

The new releases employ state-of-the-art DSD mastering technology, which digitally samples the music at a rate 64 times faster than standard CD audio. The company claims it also spent hundreds of hours in England and the U.S., searching for the truest possible master tapes.

Here's the full list of reissues coming from the ABKCO "Rolling Stones Remastered" series:

"England's Newest Hitmakers"

"12x5"

"The Rolling Stones Now"

"Out Of Our Heads"

"Out of Our Heads - U.K. Version"

"December's Children"

"Big Hits (High Tide & Green Grass)"

"Aftermath"

"Aftermath - U.K. Version"

"Got Live If You Want It!"

"Between The Buttons"

"Between The Buttons - U.K. Version"

"Flowers"

"Their Satanic Majesties Request"

"Beggars Banquet"

"Through The Past, Darkly (Big Hits Vol.2)"

"Let It Bleed"

"Get Yer Ya-Ya's Out"

"Hot Rocks"

"More Hot Rocks"

"The Rolling Stones Singles Collection - The London Years"

"Metamorphosis - U.K. Version"

Rolling Stones Turn To 'Super Audio' For Reissues

A series of 22 Rolling Stones reissues to be released Aug. 20 from ABKCO Records will mark the first albums by a major act in the new dual-layer hybrid Super Audio CD (SACD) format, Billboard Bulletin reports. Hybrid SACDs can be played on an SACD player, allowing delivery of the format's high-resolution audio, or on any standard CD player. The series, "The Rolling Stones Remastered," was announced today (May 30) at the Home Entertainment Expo in New York.

The reissues will comprise the Stones' initial recordings from 1963 through the 1970 live set "Get Yer Ya-Ya's Out!," as well as several compilations, such as the two-CD sets "Hot Rocks, 1964-1971" and "More Hot Rocks (Big Hits and Fazed Cookies)." The three-CD "Singles Collection: The London Years" will also be reissued. The Stones established their own Rolling Stones Records label for the 1971 release of "Sticky Fingers," and all of the group's albums from that point forward are now under the domain of Virgin.

SACD was jointly developed by Sony and Philips, and entry-level players now start at less than $200. Most recent players are multichannel-capable; however, "Rolling Stones Remastered" will not carry surround-sound audio.

As previously reported, the Stones are returning to the road for the first time in three years this fall, beginning Sept. 3 in Boston. A comprehensive greatest-hits collection is in the works and is expected to include some newly recorded songs.
