Actually, there are albums from the 60s and even the 50s that sound good and are praised by audiophiles.
A great recordings is not simply about dynamic range, although of course this is great. Nor is it simply about heavy base. Sound-staging and the overall reproduction of a sound. I think this is where audiophiles's use if the term "Hi Fi" comes in, meaning there is a high level of fidelity (the degree of exactness with which something is copied or reproduced). So, does a horn on the recording sound like a horn in real life? You can have a million dollar stereo but you also need the recording itself to have the information to give you that sound. Conversely, a great recording and lousy stereo won't give it to you either, which is why you need a "hi fi" system, as they say.
At their very best, The Rolling Stones are sub-par in this area. I have often lamented this, as the Stones have made much of what is my favorite music of all time. So a professionally recorded fully digital Stones album would be a welcome thing.
There are COUNTLESS records from the 60s to present that sound far better than ANYTHING by the Stones.
I think we were talking about Frank Zappa a while back here. Check out his live album "Does Humour Belong In Music?" Sounds ten times better than any live Stones album. Again, Dire Straits are awesome, as are Pink Floyd's and many others
