Rolling Stones – Sticky Fingers UK First Sealed LP
A virtually perfect sealed 1971 UK first pressing of The Rolling Stones’ classic album Sticky Fingers. This example was imported to the USA by the long-defunct West Coast record store chain The Wherehouse, where it was sealed (as all UK import albums were) to protect it. It has the original Wherehouse $5.96 price sticker on the shrink wrap.
UK imports sold in the 70’s for $1.00 more than domestic pressings, and were generally purchased by collectors who were happy to pay more, as imports were superior pressings to US issues. This album, released in the UK on April 23, 1971, has the earliest cover variation with the ACME zipper pull and catalog number COC 59100 on the spine, and the square stamps logos on the front cover.
The cover is in absolutely beautiful condition with fully intact shrink wrap and square corners. As with virtually every original copy, you can see a bit of pressure indentation on the back from where the zipper on the album behind in the box it made contact. The first sealed UK original we’ve seen in more than 40 years.
