Does anyone have an original Black and Blue lyric sheet from the original release?

Requires good eyes: [iorr.org] - looks like that the last two typos are not present.

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.

LOL
Yea...5 years from now: After hearing the (insert newest,latest format designed to sell you your albums all over again for the 16th time) I don't see the use of going thru the froo-froo of hipster Blue-Ray Audio CDs. Yeesh.

Considering the aspect that people think vinyl releases are the best sound but some of the albums did not involve tape when being recorded, it is strictly a money grab. So if you think anything from 1989 onward will sound better because it's on vinyl, I have some land in Louisiana I'd like to sell you as well.

Well, I've got them all on vinyl already...many in multiple copies of various pressings.

A couple of specialist reviews have indicated that this set of remasters has something interesting to offer ...

Word is they're not "brick walled" and have a natural sound, not cut too hot.

...and I was very pleasantly surprised by the sound of the Abbey Road BB [once I'd gotten over forking out 40 quid for an LP and bunch of other stuff I didn't want in a fancy sleeve grinning smiley]

I've got some digital albums on vinyl - just for the sake of having a big copy. I'll never listen to it since it's pointless.

As for this new vinyl box release, just speculating, but seems they might have made more money with a regular compilation in various formats vs. a box set of vinyl which no matter what kind of "comeback" it's making is still a bit of a niche market. And while it will be more expensive than a comp in all formats, not sure if enough will sell to out-profit a regular compilation which could have been sold at merch stands, etc. at all the upcoming shows. Then again, I'm not as knowledgable as you about the business. I'm also no Universal exec. or an expert at sales strategies - especially for bands that live off of their past glories.

They are a 95% "physical product act" so the options are:

1- A "cheap" compilation of 20 warhorses priced at $5-7, it will sell more but not that much, physical sales are down 20-25% each year during the last 8-10 years, also a new Stones compilation is not news to anyone.


2- A 15 album box set priced way higher, it will sell way less than a regular compilation but it will make way more money thanks to the overprice.

So, 100,000/200,000 copies sold of a cheap compilation or 10,000/20,000 for an overpriced box set?

They went with the second option, there's not too much money difference at the end anyway.

...and so the 'compilation of 20 warhorses' is coming sad smiley

just to confirm that having succumbed to the set, I'm not disappointed.

They all sound pretty good .
The older stuff not as good as pristine original pressings...[nothing ever does equal those], but maybe the next best thing.

What's interesting is that the album I find to be a real improvement on the original vinyl release is A Bigger Bang.

Digital of course from the outset...but here not "brick walled" into a big homogenous noise !

[I do wish they'd remastered B&L instead if just using the original metal work...a bit lazy on the face of it...but I'd like to know exactly why they didn't include it in the process ]

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!

Having received & unboxed my box (#08531) today, I just started with the downloads.
B&L is indeed the 24/88200 version, but "Loving Cup" I downloaded as the original LP version.
So it looks as if the EOMS d/l is corrected somewhere along the way.
