Roll up, roll up, get your Rolling Stones 24-bit 88.2kHz downloads here...

https://www.hdtracks.com/index.php?file=cat...D00018771886723

...what? Quality not good enough for you sir? Pay an extra $10 for the 24-bit 176.4kHZ version here...

https://www.hdtracks.com/index.php?file=cat...X00018771886723

...and hear those 1964 recordings in all their, er, glory. (Play the previews if you don't understand why this is so funny).

Cheers,
David.

P.S. No flames please. I think some of the music is great, and this may well be the best digital release of it - but 176.4kHz for this?!

I didn't do so before, but now I added HDTracks to my personal axis of evil.

You'll love this page then...
https://www.hdtracks.com/index.php?file=sta...name=which_kind

but if people use all this as an excuse to dig out the master tapes, and present an album sounding better than it ever has on CD (even though, of course, it could sound just as good on CD!) then it's nice that they have an excuse to do so, and it's nice to hear classic albums sounding better than ever.

(and in any cases where this is the only release of the better master, I'll just have to downsample it to 44.1kHz and encode it to mp3 myself wink.gif )

Cheers,
David.
