    According to MusicTap, "Tower Records has the entire batch of Stones SACD titles from Abkco Records available for only $9.99. Additionally, those real expensive 'best of' titles are only a mere $19.99. This is only for a short time (Feb 9) so rush out and pick 'em up."

    What are some of the better Stones ABKCO remastered albums, as I'm not up on the Stones as much as I'd like? I might just take them up on this sale. Unless, of course, this heavily discounted sale means ABKCO will now re-release them in multichannel...

    I would probably start with Hot Rocks Vol. 1. It covers most of their early standards. As far as stand alone albums I usually recommend starting with Begger's Banquet,Let It Bleed, and Aftermath. I have all of the above albums on SACD and the sonics are about as good as you can get for albums that old.

    This is a good deal but I wouldn't read anything into it. Circuit City and Deep Discount CD have had similar sales in the past.

    Good choices Chung. Be aware that there are 2 versions of Aftermath: the US and the UK versions. I'd recommend the UK version, especially if you're getting Hot Rocks.

    Yup, definately the UK version, as I believe it has a longer version of Out of Time. Thanks for the advice

    I'll second the UK version on Aftermath.

    I'll also second Hot Rocks 1 and 2 and Beggars Banquet. Superb.



    I'm keeping my fingers crossed. [​IMG]

    I'll third it...

    I believe that's the only disc where a stereo mix of Mother's Little Helper can be found... the mix on Hot Rocks is mono.

    Aftermath is loaded in any event.
