    This video was just shared on their Facebook page. Shows a 3D rendering of what looks like a box set, with 'vinyl noise' under the intro to "Start Me Up"

    Looks like a lenticular or varnished red/blue shifting tongue on the cover, with various multi-colour tongues on the spine... June 15th is the date given

    Could it contain their post 1989 output?

    I wonder if the 15 tongues on the spine correspond with albums that will be included; if so, I'd venture to guess it will be simply the post-ABKCO studio albums, from Sticky Fingers to Blue and Lonesome

    Exile
    , Voodoo, Babylon, Bang and B&L are all doubles so this would be at least 19 discs of vinyl... probably not a cheap item

    Cool. I'm sure it will be very affordable.

    buying all those albums like Babylon and Bang etc would still be more expensive on Discogs/Ebay etc so I'm in!

    I'm really only interested in decent-sounding standalone reissues of Voodoo Lounge and Bridges to Babylon, originals are not cheap or easy to find

    Universal already released a box with all the albums from Sticky up to Bang in 2010, but reportedly the packaging quality left something to be desired

    I also would be up for their 1990s output plus 2005's BB. Assuming it contains those albums & they release 'em individually afterwards. Speculation on top of speculation at this point.

    This just popped out on their official site. No further info about any release. Speculations? I was thinking about getting the Mono boxset couple weeks ago. Now I don't know what to do.
    EDIT: Haven't noticed new thread already created

    The albums Love You Live, Flashpoint, and No Security have also been out of print on vinyl for over twenty years, as has the original Stripped 2xLP (even though it's been bootlegged on dodgy marbled colour vinyl)

    Some of the more recent live efforts like Live Licks and the Scorsese Shine a Light soundtrack have never been officially released on vinyl before... again prompting bootleggers to fill the gap with knock-offs

    Doubtful this box set will remedy that situation, but I could be wrong...

    Hopefully we will get standalone releases too to keep the vinyls in print like what queen done

    Slightly cheaper than my pit ticket for London next month (£399).

    I thought the issue was with the source (based off the Universal 2009 masters, or basically nowhere near the quality of the 1964-1969 set, sound-wise).

    But yeah, I have originals of everything up to Flashpoint, so all I really need is Voodoo and B2B. Still waiting on individual titles of those.

    I think you are right about the 15 tongues, they match the color schemes of each studio album from Sticky Fingers to Blue and Lonesome.

    truth, my BtB and ABB are splitting apart where they were glued...and Sticky Fingers + Exile on Mang St are very one-dimensional sounding (compressed and very..."obviously digital" isn't accurate, because digital doesn't have to sound THAT bad.
