Rolling Stones – Spanish 1st Pressing “Sticky Fingers” LP With Alternate Cover
A rare 1971 Spanish first pressing of The Rolling Stones masterpiece Sticky Fingers, with the Spanish-only album cover. While the rest of the world released Sticky Fingers in Andy Warhol’s famed cover featuring jeans, a zipper and underwear, censors in Spain under General Franco wouldn’t permit the cover to be used there. They also objected to the song “Sister Morphine”. As a result, a Spanish-only a version was devised, substituting a live version of Chuck Berry’s “Let It Rock” for “Sister Morphine” and packaged in this unique-to-Spain album cover. While it was re-released at least once, this is the earliest version, with a thick laminated cover and thick deep-groove disc (grooves from the pressing machine are visible on the disc’s labels.) In Near Mint/Mint condition, probably only played once. With song title/credit insert. 1971.
