Rolling Stones – Bill Wyman’s Personal ‘Black and Blue’ Test Pressing LP, with His Handwritten Track Listing, Fully Documented (Artist Owned)
A rare test pressing of the Rolling Stones 1976 album Black and Blue from the collection of longtime Stones’ bassist Bill Wyman, with his handwritten notations and track listing on the front cover.
Bill Wyman is legendary both as a musician and as a collector of Rolling Stones memorabilia. This test pressing was sold by him at the Bill Wyman and his Rolling Stones Archive sale at Julien’s Auctions (if you haven’t already seen the Wyman documentary The Quiet One, we enthusiastically recommend it.)
The Presswell test pressing of the Rolling Stones Records release is in Near Mint- condition. On the original generic white cover Wyman has handwritten the catalog number, album title, date, and track titles, coincidentally in black and blue ink.
With the original auction house descriptive card, hang tag, and Recordmecca’s written lifetime guarantee of authenticity, signed by Recordmecca’s Jeff Gold, who has consulted for Bill Wyman.
A rare opportunity to obtain a Rolling Stones test pressing owned by a Rolling Stone!
