The download version of "Exile" has the outtake of "Loving Cup" from the deluxe edition. I don't know what else they've messed up.

Looks like B2B and ABB too: [iorr.org] .

But I've read a comment in the Steve-Hoffman-Forum that the Download-files from B2B are now complete ....

The versions of both I received were complete.

Yes, and it is in 32 bit while the rest of Exile is only in 16 bit.

After more careful analysis the situation with digital download became even more weird. I run the whole set through Dynamic Range Meter @ foobar2000 and these are the results

Sticky Fingers 16/44.1 - 2009 remaster
Exile On Main St. 16/44.1 except for Loving Cup which is the outtake and is 24/44.1 - 1994 Virgin remaster apart of Loving Cup which is 0.49 dB shifted comparing 2010 bonus disc.
Goats Head Soup 24/44.1 - Level shifted 2009 remaster with uncensored Star, Star
It's Only Rock 'n Roll 24/44.1 - Level shifted 2009 remaster
Black and Blue 16/44.1 - 2009 remaster
Some Girls 24/44.1 - Level shifted 2009 remaster
Emotional Rescue 24/44.1 - Level shifted 2009 remaster
Tattoo You 24/44.1 - Level shifted 2009 remaster
Undercover 16/44.1 - 2009 remaster
Dirty Work 24/44.1 - Level shifted 2009 remaster
Steel Wheels 16/44.1 - 2009 remaster
Voodoo Lounge 24/44.1 - Level shifted 2009 remaster
Bridges To Babylon 16/44.1 - original Virgin version 1997
A Bigger Bang 16/44.1 - 2009 remaster (which is marginally different from original 2005)
Blue & Lonesome 24/88.2 - HD tracks version with 0.01 dB shift
Level shift means that on 2009 remastered CD the tracks are usually clipped to -0.11 dB, while for download they are clipped to -0.61 dB or -0.80 dB.
What a mess!

Vinyl Box is too expensive for me. And also I do not have turntable. I was actually thinking that in the future I could possibly (if budget allows) buy some of the new versions of Virgin Albums when they have been mastered properly for this (vinyl) release (and sold separately). Because the remasters from 2009 (Marcussen) are really very bad, overcompressed and too loud. Therefore I have never bought them, I have bought majority of Stones' albums from original Virgin releases or Bob Ludwig ABKCO remasters.

But it is bad that associated HD download is not HD, moreover, that the Virgin albums are not available in true HD like 24/48 (or 24/96 but 24/48 would be OK).

16/44.1 bit audio is dithered and sharply filtered - no HD (while CD format is enough for normal use - but 24/48 is "optimal")

Hope someday also the "recent" albums (that are in the box) will be available in improved mastering, although the original (not Marcussen) mastering is pretty good already. But to note one bad example, A Bigger Bang has been brickwalled and overcompressed and I do not know about "better" version.

Great article, thanks for posting it.
Even for a non-audiophile like myself, I could follow along with the process.

Have been debating getting this, and this article has gone a long way towards helping with the decision.

Anyone else have problems w/ their 'Emotional Rescue' ?

On my FIRST spin of Side-A, "Dance" has a skip in it.

Really?

Vinyl is a bunch of crap. After hearing Blu Ray Audio CDs I don't see the use of going through the froo froo of hipster vinyl.

There were tons of complains about poor quality pressing for this box on Hoffman's forum. I believe this is because vinyls made their mainstream comeback too fast. As a result - pressing runs increase and quality control drops. I will not be surprised that vinyl guys will find themselves in the position like in old good times. I mean, hunting for a specific pressing from a specific plant because the rest are crap.

I read in this thread that on this release, Mixed Emotions has a "wrong", organ-strong mix and Fingerprint File got a new remake from the master.
Would anyone please share just these 2 tracks somehow?

There's some interesting infos on this article from Goldmine Magazine.

Is the latest Rolling Stones’ behemoth vinyl box set worth the big bucks?
August 29, 2018 - Dave Thompson

In fact, he (Abbey Road Studios’ Miles Showell, the man behind the remastering) admits to just one significant alteration — or, should we say, reversion.

“The only track I changed from the tape I was given was ‘Fingerprint File.’ It had been fiddled with on the original cut, and when it’s been remastered in the years since then, they’ve gone with what was on the tape, as opposed to what was done in 1974.

“I spoke with management and said ‘I think we should try and recreate what was done originally. Let’s slow it down to the speed that’s on the record, because that’s the first pressing, that’s obviously how they wanted it to come out, and it’s vastly different in speed. It’s not a mistake, and that’s the only time I brought in any changes. It was important to try and place it back into the same ballpark as it was meant to be. Although actually, a lot of that original track was recorded out of phase. It’s a real mess. God knows what was happening in the studio!”
