Original promotional poster for the 1971 Rolling Stones LP, "Sticky Fingers"

London: Rolling Stones Records, 1971. Vintage lithograph promotional poster for the classic 1971 album, playfully and conceptually utilizing the original album design by Andy Warhol.

A scarce item, made on the London side of the Atlantic to promote the British release, though presumably never released. Printed on an unusually thick, textured stock and machine-folded as issued.

Rather than licking their wounds after Altamont, the Rolling Stones recorded a follow-up that was the equal of "Let It Bleed," taking "Brown Sugar" from a drug-induced all-night session in Muscle Shoals, "Sister Morphine" from the "Let It Bleed" sessions, and 8 more blistering tracks recorded in their mobile unit during the summer of 1970. Andy Warhol famously designed the jeans-and-zipper cover, which the boys make humorous use of here. Virtually every track today is a staple of rock radio, including "Bitch," "Sway," "Wild Horses," "Can't You Hear Me Knocking," Dead Flowers," and "Moonlight Mile."

23 x 35 inches, on heavy textured stock and machine folded as issued. Fine.
