Rolling Stones: Sticky Fingers (Abbey Road half speed remaster) LP
The Rolling Stones' swaying 1971 opus Sticky Fingers captures the band at the absolute peak of its powers on timeless tracks such as "Brown Sugar," "Wild Horses," "Bitch," "Sister Morphine," and "Dead Flowers." Sticky Fingers was recorded in Muscle Shoals, Alabama, Mick Jagger's country home Stargroves, and Olympic Studios in London, and produced by regular confidant Jimmy Miller. Sticky Fingers is awash in the band's trademark combination of swagger and tenderness and continued the incredible outpouring of creative energy that had produced 1968's Beggars Banquet and Let It Bleed in 1969, showcasing the ever more inventive song writing of Mick Jagger and Keith Richards, and formidable guitar licks from Mick Taylor. The album was released shortly after the Stones became exiled in the south of France, leaving Britain after a sensational farewell tour. It also featured some of the most groundbreaking artwork in rock history by Andy Warhol, with its famous working zip on the front cover. Remastered and cut at revelatory Half-Speed at Abbey Road Studios from vinyl specific original tape transfers designed to get the very best possible sound from the format. Pressed on heavyweight 180g LP with lyric sheet insert.
