Our Price: $149.99

  • An outstanding copy with two killer sides -- who knew the record could sound this good? Certainly not us!

  • The sound is dramatically bigger, richer, fuller and livelier than any pressing you have ever heard
  • "This may not be as downright funky, freaky, and fantastic as Exile, yet the extra layer of gloss brings out the enunciated lyrics, added strings, wah-wah guitars, explicit sex, and violence, making it all seem trippily decadent..."

Rolling Stones - Emotional Rescue

The Stones Album You Don't Know

  (Item #: rolliemoti_2013) 



This is a great sounding Stones album which, we're guessing, You Probably Don't Know.

Side two of this Better Records Rock and Roll Hall of Fame copy ranks up there with the very best we've ever heard, earning an A+++ grade and DESTROYING our preconceived notions about the kind of sonics we might get from the ultimate copies. This one DOES IT, plain and simple. It's got serious punch down low, superb clarity, all the extension up top, and a HUGE open soundfield that lets you hear every last detail. She's So Cold sounds amazing, we've never heard it sound better.

Our Shootout Winner from 2010

  (Item #: rolliexile_2010) 



A distinguished member of the Better Records Rock Hall of Fame.

Another HUGE double album conquered! This shootout was a MAJOR struggle, an uphill battle all the way. Stones fans and Hot Stamper die-hards are going to flip out over this one -- here’s the Exile On Main Street you've been waiting for. You'd have to find, clean and play a ton of copies to come up with four sides that would come even close to the sound here.

What to Listen For

  (Item #: rolliexile_wtlf) 



Another in our series of Home Audio Exercises with advice on what you should be listening for when critically evaluating your copy (or ours) of the album.

The best copies will tend to have the qualities detailed below, and the more abundant these qualities are on any given pressing, the higher its grade will be.

Yes, it is a science, an empirical one, which can only be carried out by the use of strict protocols and controls, but it sure ain't rocket science. All you need is the system, the room, the records, the time and the will to do the painstaking critical listening required to complete the task.

STUNNINGLY GOOD SOUND ON BOTH SIDES! This Hot Stamper Let It Bleed is the best copy we’ve EVER played, rating A++ on side one and A+++ on side two. ’Love In Vain’ is DEMO DISC QUALITY here. Who knew Let It Bleed could sound this amazing?

Listening in Depth

  (Item #: rolliafter_depth) 



Presenting another entry in our extensive Listening in Depth series.

Lady Jane, Under My Thumb and Mother's Little Helper are three of the best sounding tracks on side one -- all three are lively and solid here. On side two Out of Time and I Am Waiting are especially well recorded.

DAVE HASSINGER rightly deserves the credit for the best sounding early Stones album -- this one.

The Rolling Stones - Aftermath

Our Shootout Winner from 2009

  (Item #: rolliafter_2009) 



A distinguished member of the Better Records Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

This is a pretty quiet Decca in the Box stereo copy with VERY GOOD SOUND (for an early Stones record). If they all sounded like this we wouldn’t be making excuses for their recordings all the time. We give both sides a grade of A Plus, which means you certainly can do better if you can find lots of pressings to clean and play for your Hot Stamper shootout. What’s that? You say clean copies don’t grow on trees out where you live? Hey, we have the same problem! We find one or two copies of the early albums a year, and sometimes even the good looking ones are too noisy to sell.

Surprisingly Good Domestic Pressings Do Exist

  (Item #: rolliafter_1501) 



A distinguished member of the Better Records Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

We've paired up a Double Plus (A++) copy for each side to create this Super Hot 2-pack, which is the only way we were able to find good sound for the whole album. Paint It Black is missing from the Brit version, but it's here and it sounds wonderful.

A big surprise -- domestic Super Hot Stamper sound for Aftermath! We didn't even know it was possible, but on a lark we pulled a big stack of these out of the back and played them against our best imports. We were blown away when the best domestic copies held their own and delivered some seriously good early Stones sound!

Critical Listening Exercise

  (Item #: rollibegga_listen) 



Another in our series of Home Audio Exercises with specific advice on What to Listen For (WTLF).

Want a good test for Transparency and Resolution? Try this one. There is a sound on this album's side one that's unlike any I can recall hearing before. Listen to No Expectations and see if you don't hear something quite strange going on in the general area of the left rear of the studio. It took me a while to figure out what it was, and on the bad British pressings and all of the domestic copies you can hardly hear it all.

The Rolling Stones - Get Yer Ya-Ya's Out!

Our Shootout Winner from 2011

  (Item #: rolligetye_2011) 



A distinguished member of the Better Records Rock Hall of Fame.

UNBELIEVABLE! The sound on this Decca Blue Label British Import pressing went far beyond our expectations and far beyond that of any copy we played it against -- on BOTH sides. And the music? It’s the Stones at their best, baby -- we love it!

The credit must of course go to GLYN JOHNS, who happens to be one of our favorite producers and recording / mixing engineers. It's albums with sound like this that make us such big fans of his work.

The Rolling Stones - Goats Head Soup

Live and Learn, A Lesson from 2011

  (Item #: rolligoats_2011) 



This is a classic case of Live and Learn.

We would agree with very little of what we had to say about Goat's Head Soup as a recording when we wrote about it back in 2011 -- and for the previous 35+ years since I first played a domestic original.

Having done a big shootout for the album in 2016 we now know there most certainly are great sounding pressings to be found, because we found some. The data are in, and now we know just how wrong we were. In our defense, let me just ask one question: Did anybody else know this record was well recorded? I can find no evidence to support anyone having ever taken such a contrarian position.

The Rolling Stones - Goats Head Soup

Our Shootout Winner from 2016

  (Item #: rolligoats_2016) 



A distinguished member of the Better Records Rock Hall of Fame.

The impossible has happened - we found a good sounding copy of Goats Head Soup, only 53 years after it was first released.

Why did it take us so long to find a killer copy? Let's just say the pressing is somewhat "off the beaten path" and leave it at that. We ran into it by accident during an attempted shootout not long ago, and it was so much better than the other records we were playing at the time that we had to postpone the shootout until we could find more of these specific pressings. It took some months but we managed to get a big pile of "happy accidents" together and the result was a gamechanging White Hot copy.

Listening in Depth

  (Item #: rolliletit_wtlf) 



Another in our series of Home Audio Exercises with advice on What to Listen For (WTLF) as you critically evaluate your copy of the album.

Love In Vain on a copy like this is one of the best sounding Rolling Stones songs of all time. In previous listings I've mentioned how good this song sounds -- thanks to Glyn Johns, of course -- but on these amazing Hot Stamper copies it is OUT OF THIS WORLD. It's also our favorite test track for side one. The first minute or so clues you into to everything that's happening in the sound.

The Rolling Stones - Rolled Gold (2 LPs)

  (Item #: rollirolle_0711) 



We took the best first LP and mated it to the best second LP from the set to create the overall Shootout Winner with EIGHT, count 'em, eight total pluses over the four sides! And side one was WHITE HOT. We certainly didn't expect to hear sound like that on a 1975 compilation of classic Stones hits such as this; most Stones compilations are awful sounding in our experience. Played Hot Rocks lately?

But these tracks have the potential to be taken from something very close to the real master tapes, a subject we discuss in one of our dirty little secret commentaries. And they put the early mono recordings on these discs in mono, which is another good sign that somebody at the label wanted this material to sound authentic and correct. (Most of the time i

The Rolling Stones - Some Girls

Our Shootout Winner from 2008

  (Item #: rollisomeg_2008) 



A distinguished member of the Better Records Rock and Pop Hall of Fame.

Side one is an absolute knockout -- we've never heard one like it and we don't expect to find a better one. Our standard top grade of A+++ only begins to tell the story here. No other copy we played had bass this deep and meaty, or drums so full and punchy.You aren't going to believe how hard it rocks, with all the WHOMP and ENERGY we hoped for when we began shooting out this title. The sax solo in Miss You sounds incredible -- it actually has some balls, something you just don't get with the typical pressing. The hi-hats sound incredibly natural and clear, and the vocals are Right On The Money (ROTM).

Listening in Depth

  (Item #: rollistick_depth) 



Another in our series of Home Audio Exercises with advice on What to Listen For (WTLF) as you critically evaluate your copy of Sticky Fingers.

A QUICK TEST: The best copies have texture and real dynamics in the brass. The bad copies are smeared, grainy and unpleasant when the brass comes in. Toss those bad ones and start shooting out the good ones. Believe me, if you find a good one it will be worth all the work.

And don't forget to Turn Up Your Volume.

MoFi Debunked

  (Item #: rollistick_mofi_debunk) 



Sonic Grade: F

A Hall of Shame pressing and another MoFi LP debunked.

The MoFi pressing of this album is a joke. It’s so compressed, lifeless, and lacking in bottom end that it would hardly interfere with even the most polite conversation at a wine tasting. I consider it one of the worst sounding versions ot the album ever made. It’s an Audiophile Record in the worst sense of the word.

The Rolling Stones - Sticky Fingers

Worst Version Ever!

  (Item #: rollistick_debunk) 



Sonic Grade: F

A Hall of Shame Pressing and another Heavy Vinyl LP debunked.

This RTI 180g copy (with the zipper cover) is one of a series of five titles Bob Ludwig cut in the ’90s. According to the man, after cutting the record he chanced upon a consumer copy and was shocked to hear how bad it sounded.

It sounded, according to him, nothing like the record he had cut. Somehow they had botched the pressings and ruined the sound. How this could happen I can’t imagine.

  (Item #: rollitatto_2011) 



A distinguished member of the Better Records Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

THE BEST SIDE TWO WE'VE HEARD, which means we've never heard Waiting On A Friend sound this good on any other copy! We just finished a huge shootout for this 1981 Stones album, one that the All Music Guide tags as "essential latter-day Stones". In the tradition of other late '70s / early '80s Stones albums (Some Girls, Goats Head Soup, It's Only Rock And Roll), the sound is a bit raw at times, but a copy like this one gives you enough energy, body and richness to make for some very enjoyable serious listening.
