Yes, we all have the Forty Licks double cd set in our collection. Nope, it was never perfect. The new GRRR! cds ain't perfect either. Unless, of course - you sell a kidney and buy the super deluxe edition, because then it is fucking perfect!

The super deluxe edition is a 4cd 80 songs monster including everything you ever wanted. Also you get a cd of IBC demos from 1963 and a vinyl single of a BBC radio session from 1964 and a poster and postcards and the huge and heavy quality book with photos of weird-ass The Stones memorabilia shit.

Wave goodbye to your kidney and say hello to the Rolling Stones 2012 boxset. You will sit on it and feel awesome and mighty until the next boxset comes out in 2022. By then are probably only Keith immortal and Mick still alive. And the new bonus songs are even weaker. But still...

Thanks to BTs Steffen for kicking my ass towards buying this monster.

You need to get the super deluxe cd boxset to get the full selection of 80 songs. Expensive yes. But you've got more problems ahead. You also need the 5 LP boxset of vinyl records. It holds 50 songs and it sounds absolutely fucking awesome on a quality turntable.
