The Rolling Stones’ album “Let It Bleed” has reached its 50th anniversary.

To mark the occasion, the band is releasing a limited edition set of two LPs and two CDs.

The original release “Let It Bleed” represented a period of turmoil of the band.

During its production, the band lost Brian Jones and gained Mick Taylor.

The album also became an artistic highlight of the band. “Let It Bleed” featured multiple songs that would become a regular part of the band’s tours.

The album contains signature Rolling Stones songs like “You Can’t Always Get What You Want” and “Gimmie Shelter.”

The boxset contains hand-numbered replica-signed lithographs on embossed archival paper and a post with art from the 1969 record.

The set also includes an 80-page book with previously unpublished photographs from the band’s tour photographer, Ethan Russell.

The collection will be released on Nov. 1.

Below is an unboxing video of the anniversary set.
