New Rolling Stones Vinyl Box Coming in June

This won't be the first box set of post-sixties Stones vinyl, but it looks like it has the potential to be done right when UMe puts out The Studio Albums Vinyl Collection 1971-2016 on June 15. The 15 albums (5 of which are doubles, bringing the set to 20 discs) in the set spanning Sticky Fingers through Blue & Lonesome has been "sourced from the original master tapes" and "remastered and cut at half-speed at Abbey Road studios" by Miles Showell according to the press release. The Stones' signature packaging quirks have been retained, including the working zipper on Sticky Fingers, the postcards included with Exile on Main Street, the die-cuts in the cover of Some Girls, and all of the other assorted gimmicks. And it will all be housed in a lenticular box.

Here's the run down of what will be included:
  • Sticky Fingers (1971)
    • LP sleeve presented as Andy Warhol's original design complete with working zip and hidden image beneath
