“The Brian Jones Years” is a collection of tracks that featured contribution from the ex- Stone all in alternate versions ranging from the IPC studios right up until sessions for “Street Fighting Man”.
“Black and Blue” is the much bootlegged alternates from this album plus a final disk presenting a ‘live’ version of the album utilizing tracks played on various Stones throughout the years 1976 – 1999.
Both sets arrive on heavy weight, colored vinyl along with the requisite songs also on CD. “Black and Blue” also features a holographic cover. A feature of these boxed sets.If you liked this review, buy me a cup of joe. (Suggested: $3 a shot or $7.5 for a double)
