One born every minute.
The original cost me around 37/6 in 1970. I still have it, so I'll be passing on that.
You can't always get what you want
They aren't even remastered like post-"Let it Bleed" albums are...I wish I could remember the exact details but The Stones prohibit ABKCO from doing a lot of things with the pre-Rolling Stone Records library...like releasing alternate takes, unreleased tracks, etc.
This is an ABKCO cash-in, not a Stones....not that they wouldn't do something like that, but at least you'd get remixed songs & unreleased material.
Many years ago...like 92 or 93, remixed CD's were sent out to a few friends radio stations. I stupidly didn't copy the one we had. It had remixes of "Satisfaction" with a more prominent piano...and a version of "Get Off My Cloud" that finally sounded like a song recorded in the 20th century. Again, I wish I could remember the whole story, but that CD was the first & last of that.
Look around YouTube & you'll find far more interesting "Let It Bleed" stuff like:
Keith's isolated rhythm guitar from "Monkey Man"
Mick Taylor's isolated guitar "Live With Me"
How much do you think he will sell it for after that commercial?
That was the first full Rolling Stones LP I ever owned (I’d had a couple of cassette mix tapes a friend gave me)...there’s not a bad track on the disc...42 minutes of amazing music.
Spendy album. Merry Clayton would say $100 is Rape! Murder! She should have been famous. That's one of my all time favorite vocals in a song.
Still makes the hairs on the back of my neck stand up every time I hear it!
The Holy Trinity: Let it Bleed, Sticky Fingers and Exile on Main Street...3 in a row. Just my personal taste but I'd throw in Begger's Banquet and make it an even 4 in a row!
I’ll even throw in Get Yer Ya-Ya’s Out for a five-peat...that was one of the greatest live albums ever...
This is a special collectors item. only 999 made. you'll be lucky if you can find one.
you can buy the standard vinyl on Amazon for 12 bucks all day long.
Last one I purchased at release. My running buddy had Exile on cassette and I heard it in his car a half million times.
What are you 'collecting'? The music's the same. there's no bonus tracks or outtakes (which are usually crap anyway), no case candy. You're paying a premium for what is essentially a picture disc.
I have a lot of collectible vinyl, all with lots of extras justifying the premium (Ghosts I-IV is a notable one). Couldn't give a dang what they're 'worth,' because they offered value at the time of purchase.
This is an absolute ripoff, a "crime against the vinyl community" as Mike says. So shocking coming from the Stones, I know.
One of the Stones best. 100$$ if somebody is willing. You can get the music almost free now.
I wore out the 8 track version lol......
Dang $550.00 on ebay.....
Absolutely not "Duh!"
you say you have a 1970 pressing of LiB and bought that for 37 / 6. is that shilling & pence?
do the math, could be worth quite a bit by now.
but, since the record was so great, it's probably not in mint condition anymore, right?
check Discogs what you have:
"£1 in 1970 is equivalent in purchasing power to about £15.57 in 2020, a difference of £14.57 over 50 years."
if you want remastered, excellent versions - it's out there, no prob
see the asking prices on ebay for that "essentially a picture disc" version.
some people do collect, for whatever reason, but not me.
I just gather Stones music over the years and I'm sure some folks would love to get their grubby fingers on my so-far-collection. lol
Let it Bleed, Exile on Main Street and Goats Heads Soup for my Holy Trinity.
I don’t entirely agree with you, but I don’t disagree, either.
Goats Head Soup was a good album with a lot of good tracks on it...it was a “goodbye to the 60’s, hello to the 70’s” transitional album—elements of both decades throughout.
Also...I don’t know why “Dancin’ With Mr. D” has never been used in a movie about a detective trying to find a killer...
