In 1986 ABKCO Records released the first compact discs of The Rolling Stones catalog. Over the years, we have had many requests to re-issue these titles using the latest digital remastering techniques. However, we did not feel the improvements in CD mastering warranted this - until now. With the right technology in place, we spent hundreds of hours researching, and more importantly, listening to the analog masters that exist in the vaults. It was a long and painstaking process, involving a quest on both sides of the Atlantic to find the best and purest sources of The Rolling Stones' work.

ABKCO utilized Direct Stream Digital (DSD) encoding (the same conversion technology used for Super Audio CD (SACD)) which captures every nuance of the original master tapes. You will hear the "rawness" of the guitars, the vocal quality and the natural distortion of the band as it sounded in the studio.
