Rolling Stones Mono Box to Be Reissued
She Comes in Colors
By Evan Toth and Press Release
After being out of print for many years, the Rolling Stones in Mono box set will finally be seeing a reissue in early 2023. Except, this time, there is a catch! Instead of being on black vinyl, the discs will each carry their own unique color. Prices for the original issue of the box are indeed high (as of this writing, the box is selling at around a median price of $900.00). So, those who missed out on purchasing it in the first place will most definitely take advantage of the new release. Those who already own a box, but still plan on purchasing a new colorized version received the highest accolades for their adventurous collecting prowess!
