Rolling Stones – Sticky Fingers 71 press

How is the easy part, it’s the why.
When I was younger my parents had a bunch of vinyl. My mother, being English, was a big Stones fan. We weren’t very well off and we were getting some sort of repair work done at home.
The builder saw the record collection, and offered to take payment partly in vinyl. So my mother parted with her original Stones – Sticky Fingers with the working zipper that reveals the Warhol cotton briefs underneath.
Recently I’ve bought a player and have started collecting, came across this one with the same working zipper in an eBay sale so had to buy it. It’s only from 71, and literally arrived today – so is both the oldest and newest vinyl I own. But I’m just giving it a few spins before gifting to my mother.
