As the Rolling Stones roll on with their 50 & Counting tour, fans will get a chance to own three of the band's classic albums on clear vinyl later this month.

ABKCO is readying remastered versions of 1968's "Beggars Banquet," 1969's "Let It Bleed" and the 1971 double-LP hits collection "Hot Rocks" 1964 - 1971 -- all on 180-gram clear vinyl.

The reissues -- the first in a planned ABKCO series called "The Rolling Stones Clearly Classic" -- showcase the artistic heights the band reached in the late '60s and early '70s.

"Beggars Banquet," featuring classics like "Street Fighting Man" and "Sympathy for the Devil," was the Stones' last full album with founding guitarist Brian Jones; the following year, "Let It Bleed" introduced his successor, Mick Taylor, along with tunes including "Gimme Shelter" and "You Can't Always Get What You Want."

The Rolling Stones' 50 & Counting tour continues Wednesday night at the Honda Center in Anaheim, Calif.
