Two Rolling Stones vinyl box sets coming Nov. 23rd

Got this in my email today. Two Rolling Stones vinyl box sets coming out November 23rd. Both very pricey:

THE ROLLING STONES 1964-1969 LIMITED EDITION REMASTERED VINYL BOX SET ($370.49 at Amazon):


1964-1969 box set details:

- First five titles in the set are presented in their original mono format affording, for the first time in years, an opportunity for Stones fans to enjoy remastered versions of the tracks "I Can't Be Satisfied," "Time Is On My Side" (Version 2) and "Down the Road Apiece" as originally released.

- Through the Past, Darkly (Big Hits Vol. 2) is included with its original octagonal cover and artwork intact.

- Metamorphosis is also included in the set; the album was first released in 1975 but is wholly comprised of tracks recorded from the early-to-late sixties.

- The inclusion of the band's original two "Big Hits" collections was mandated by the fact that U.K. album releases in that era most often did not include contemporaneously released hit singles.

- First vinyl reissue in decades for The Rolling Stones (EP), The Rolling Stones, Five by Five (EP), The Rolling Stones No. 2, Big Hits (High Tide and Green Grass) and Through the Past, Darkly (Big Hits Vol. 2).

VINYL CONTENT:
1. The Rolling Stones (EP)
2. The Rolling Stones (UK)
3. Five by Five (EP)
4. The Rolling Stones No. 2
5. Out Of Our Heads (UK)
6. Aftermath (UK)
7. Big Hits (High Tide and Green Grass)
8. Between The Buttons (UK)
9. Their Satanic Majesties Request
10. Beggars Banquet
11. Through The Past, Darkly (Big Hits Vol. 2)(UK)
12. Let It Bleed
13. Metamorphosis


THE ROLLING STONES 1971-2005 LIMITED EDITION REMASTERED VINYL BOX SET ($398.99 at Amazon):


1971-2005 box set details:

- Includes 14 re-mastered studio albums from Sticky Fingers (1971) to A Bigger Bang (2005) (4 albums are double LPs)

- Includes the brand new re-mastered version of Exile On Main St., subject of recent documentary and Super-Deluxe version

- First vinyl reissue in decades for Goat's Head Soup, It's Only Rock And Roll, Black And Blue, Emotional Rescue, Tattoo You, Undercover, Dirty Work and Steel Wheels.

- Complementing the recent CD Re-Masters set

VINYL CONTENT:
1. Sticky Fingers
2. Goats Head Soup
3. It's Only Rock'n Roll
4. Black and Blue
5. Some Girls
6. Emotional Rescue
7. Tattoo You
8. Undercover
9. Dirty Work
10. Steel Wheels
11. Voodoo Lounge (double album)
12. Bridges To Babylon (double album)
13. A Bigger Bang (double album)
14. Exile On Main St. (double album)

A little too rich for my blood, and for the price of the second box set I would also have liked the various singles and b-sides they released from 1971-2005. Still, if you're a Stones fanatic, have fun!

Sounds very cool, but way too expensive. Even the Doors vinyl set wasn't this steep in comparison.

Yeah, I'd love to get my hands on that first one, but I have a feeling I could track down originals for far less (and that would probably sound better - assuming these new reissues are digital-sourced).

nice mono copies of the first 60s albums might cost a bit of money but there's no question they would sound better than any reissue

Holding out hope that the LP of Exile on Main St. includes the additional tracks as part of this set (initially those tracks were only available on CD).

Would love to have both these -- though they are spendy.
