The Rolling Stones – Sticky Fingers (1971)

Rolling Stones Records

COC 59100

    • Originally Released:  23 April 1971

    • This Release:   1971

    • Mastering:   ???

    • Comments:   Original US pressing with working zipper. An absolute ripper of a pressing. My Australian copy from the 80’s is in better condition but sounds nowhere near as good. I thought my Japanese SHM-SACD might have been the one to beat, and although it is pretty amazing (apparently it’s a direct transfer of the master tape), it doesn’t contain the “magic” that this does. One of my top 5 all-time albums.

Do you have this pressing? If so, what do you think? Do you have a different pressing? How is it? Please feel free to comment.

Well hello there pretty ladies

    • Originally Released:   9 June 1978

    • This Release:   1978

    • Mastering:   Ted Jensen

    • Comments:   Australian pressing with the censored cover art. Thankfully EMI Australia used the US stampers for this. Mastered by Ted Jensen at Sterling. Very flimsy vinyl but the sound is anything but.
