On November 13, (November 12 for the rest of the world), Universal, Abkco, and The Rolling Stones plan the release of a career-spanning ‘best of’ that will sort through five decades of some of Rock’s great tracks.
Yeah, we have seen more than a fair share of Rolling Stones collections. One of the bad things with many of those, is that they have never been really complete. And while Grrr! is likely to not be complete either, its scope will likely be vast.
The releases include a 3CD, 50-track set with a 24-page booklet housed in a digipak package; and a 3CD, 50-track Deluxe Edition that furthers the booklet with a 36-page hardback book and five collectible postcards encased in a DVD-sized casing. For those that need more, there will be a 4CD, 80-track Super Deluxe Edition Box that will add in a bonus CD, a 7″ vinyl single, a hardback book, a poster, five collectible postcards, all housed in a nice box. Vinyl fans can get a 5LP containing 50 tracks in a casebound LP Box.
In an attempt to make these sets more attractive to those that might understandably balk at this release, The Stones will bolster this with two new songs.
The track-listing hasn’t been made available as of yet but when it is, I’ll append them to this post.
