September 12, 2019

The classic Stones album that delivered “Gimme Shelter” and “Midnight Rambler” turns 50 this year, and the band is celebrating with a monster reissue.

Let it Bleed was released at the end of 1969 and also included “You Can’t Always Get Want You Want.” The track begins a fun unboxing video for the anniversary edition of the album. Watch it above.

According to a release, Let It Bleed (50th Anniversary Limited Deluxe Edition) includes the remastered album in stereo and mono on both vinyl and Hybrid SACD, and a reproduction of the 1969 7” mono single of “Honky Tonk Women”/ ”You Can’t Always Get What You Want,” in a picture sleeve.

The box set also comes with three 12” x 12” hand-numbered replica-signed lithographs printed on embossed archival paper, a full-color 23” x 23” poster with restored art from the original 1969 Decca Records package, and an 80 page hardcover book with never-before-seen photos by the band’s tour photographer Ethan Russell and an essay by journalist David Fricke.

The remastered stereo version of Let it Bleed will also be released on CD, vinyl and digitally on November 1.

Also part of the Rolling Stones' celebration of the album is a brand new lyric video for “Monkey Man.” The 4:12 track was written by Mick Jagger and Keith Richards about Italian pop artist Mario Schifano.
