A new limited-edition vinyl box set featuring reproductions of 18 singles and EPs that The Rolling Stones issued during the first few years of their career will be released on June 10 in commemoration of the band’s 60th anniversary this year.

The Rolling Stones Singles 1963-1966 boasts 18 seven-inch vinyl discs recreating singles and EPs originally released on the Decca and London Records labels in the U.K. and the U.S. The tracks were all remastered by Grammy -winning engineer Bob Ludwig, and each disc is housed in a “period-correct” picture sleeve.

The collection also includes a poster, five photos cards and a 32-page book with liner notes by Rolling Stones expert Nigel Williamson, as well as rare photos and other historic images.

The box set’s discs span from the band’s 1963 debut single, featuring a cover of Chuck Berry‘s “Come On,” through the U.S. version of the band’s 1966 hit single, “19th Nervous Breakdown.”

Other well-known Stones songs features on the single replicas include “I Wanna Be Your Man,” “Not Fade Away,” “It’s All Over Now” and “Time Is on My Side,” “Heart of Stone,” “The Last Time,” “(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction,” “Get Off of My Cloud” and “As Tears Go By.”

The box set also features three EPs — 1964’s The Rolling Stones and Five by Five, and 1965’s Got Live If You Want It! Five by Five features songs that The Stones recorded at Chicago’s famed Chess Studios, while Got Live If You Want It! was the band’s first collection of in-concert performances.

A companion vinyl box set, The Rolling Stones Singles 1966-1971, is due out next year.
