On offer here is a VERY rare LP (especially in this condition!!!!) by
The Rolling Stones called "Sticky Fingers" and is an ORIGINAL 1971UK
1st Pressing on the 1st Press Rolling Stones label!!!!THIS LP IS
SERIOUSLY RARE AND VIRTUALLY IMPOSSIBLE TO FIND!!!! IT IS ONE OF THE
RAREST & MOST SOUGHT AFTER ROLLING STONES LPS EVER - AND VIRTUALLY
NEVER TURNS UP FOR SALE!!!! JUST TRY AND FIND ANOTHER ONE!!!! IT IS
ONE OF THE MOST SOUGHT LPs ON THE ROLLING STONES LABEL - AND IS
INCREDIBLY HARD TO LOCATE TODAY!!!! IT IS ALSO THE
'EARLIEST' 1ST PRESSING EVER MADE - WITH NO EXTRA LABEL CREDITS (LATER ONES DO!), AND 3/3 MATRIX ENDINGS (LATER ONES HAVE HIGHER NUMBERS INSTEAD!)!!!!
AND ANOTHER VERY
IMPORTANT PIECE OF INFORMATION THAT RECENTLY CAME TO LIGHT (MOST ROLLING
STONES COLLECTORS WILL KNOW THIS ALREADY!) IS THAT THE 'LARGE ZIP' MYTH
HAS FINALLY BEEN EXPOSED!!!! UP UNTIL RECENTLY SOME PEOPLE WERE UNDER
THE IMPRESSION THAT THE 'LARGE ZIP' STAMPED 'PAN' WAS THE EARLIEST.
HOWEVER, SOME EXTREMELY CLEVER PERSON DID SOME VERY IMPORTANT RESEARCH
AND EXPOSED THE MYTH!!!! FIRSTLY - ON ALL 'LARGE ZIP' COVERS - AT THE
BOTTOM OF THE SPINE IT WILL SAY 'WEST GERMANY'. OR MORE COMMONLY THERE
IS SOME LIGHT WEAR THERE INSTEAD - WHERE SELLERS HAVE REMOVED IT. OFTEN
YOU WILL SEE A COVER WITH A PERFECT SPINE - AND YET ON THE VERY BOTTOM
PINCH OF THE SPINE, WILL BE SOME FRACTIONAL WEAR - GIVING THIS AWAY!!!!
HOWEVER, FURTHER PROOF WAS FOUND - WHEN THE 'PAN' ZIP MANUFACTURER WAS
EVENTUALLY LOCATED IN GERMANY!!!! SO ALL 'LARGE ZIP' COVERS ARE LATER
IMPORTED GERMAN COVERS (AND NOT UK!) WITHOUT EXCEPTION!!!! ANOTHER ZIP
THAT CAN ALSO BE EXPOSED AS LATER, ARE ZIPS WITH THE 'YKK'
STAMPINGS!!!! 'YKK' WERE A JAPANESE MANUFACTURER OF ZIPS WHO EVENTUALLY
BECAME THE LARGEST MANUFACTURER OF ZIPS IN THE WORLD IN THE 1980s. SO
THOSE WITH 'YKK' STAMPINGS WILL BE FROM THE MID 1970s (AT BEST) - AND
MOST WILL BE A LOT LATER STILL!!!! THE 'TRUE' ZIP THAT CAME FIRST ON
THIS COVER (AS MOST ROLLING STONES COLLECTORS WILL ALREADY KNOW) - IS
THIS ONE, WITH A COMPLETELY 'BLANK' ZIP WITH 2 'INDENTED' LINES. IT IS
MADE OF FAR HIGHER QUALITY OF METAL, AND IS EASY TO SPOT & DATE -
WHEN COMPARED TO SIMILAR CLOTHING ZIPS MADE IN THE LATE 1960s AND EARLY
1970s!!!! HOWEVER - THIS PARTICULAR 1ST PRESSING HAS THE ALL TIME RAREST ZIP EVER MADE!!!! IF YOU LOOK AT MY PICTURES - YOU CAN SEE IT IS VERY CLOSE TO THE DESIGN OF THE NORMAL 'SQUARE ENDED' ZIPS - AND MY CLOSE UP PICTURE WILL ALSO SHOW THAT IT HAS THE SAME AGE AND QUALITY. AND THE REASON WHY THIS ZIP IS SO RARE, IS THAT IT ONLY HAPPENED ON AROUND 2 OR 3 BATCHES OF 'PRE-RELEASE' COPIES ONLY!!!! SUCH WAS THE DEMAND FOR THIS LP IN ADVANCE ORDERS PRIOR TO RELEASE, THAT ANOTHER UK COMPANY WAS DRAFTED IN TO USE. OFTEN WRONGLY CALLED A 'TYPE 2' ZIP - WHEN THIS IS A COMPLETE MYTH. BECAUSE THIS ZIP TRULY IS 'THE RAREST OF THE RARE'!!!! YOU WILL ONLY EVER FIND IT ON THE 'EARLIEST' 1ST PRESSING EVER MADE (WITH 'NO CREDIT' LABELS!) AND YOU WILL ONLY EVER FIND IT ON THE 'THICKEST POSSIBLE' 1ST PRESS COVERS!!!! IT IS ESTIMATED THAT ONLY 2 OR 3 COVER BATCHES WERE EVER MADE LIKE THIS - AND IT COULD EVEN HAVE 'PRE-DATED' THE 'SQUARE' ZIP, AND CHANGED WHEN THE COMPANY COULDN'T KEEP UP WITH DEMAND. ONE THING IS CERTAIN HOWEVER - AND THAT IT ONLY EXISTED ON THE 'EARLIEST' 1ST PRESS COVERS ONLY, WAS ALMOST IMMEDIATELY DISCONTINUED, AND IS UNDOUBTEDLY THE 'RAREST POSSIBLE' 1ST PRESS ZIP YOU CAN EVER FIND ON THIS COVER!!!! SO NOT ONLY DOES THIS LP HAVE THE 'EARLIEST POSSIBLE' 1ST PRESS 'NO CREDITS' LABELS - BUT IT ALSO HAS THE 'EARLIEST' & 'RAREST' 1ST PRESS ZIP
IT ALSO WORTH NOTING THAT THE COVER IN THIS LP IS ONE OF THE BEST I HAVE EVER SEEN (WITH A 100% PERFECT 'BELT AREA' FOR ONCE!), AND A PERFECT SPINE WITH PERFECT SIDE WORDS!!!! AND ANOTHER INDICATION OF THIS LP BEING ONE OF THE 'EARLIEST' 1ST PRESSINGS EVER MADE - IS THAT IT HAS AN ULTRA RARE 'SAMPLE COPY' STICKER ON 1 LABEL!!!!
NOT ONLY THAT BUT THIS LP IS IN ABSOLUTELY BRILLIANT CONDITION - AND IS 100%
COMPLETE WITH ITS ORIGINAL 1ST PRESS
INSERT (SO OFTEN MISSING!)!!!! AND EVEN THE VERY FRAGILE 'BELT AREA' IS 100% PERFECT - WITH NO CREASES AT ALL!!!! JUST TAKE A LOOK AT THE PICTURES!!!!
THIS IS THE
ORIGINAL1971 UK 'RAREST EVER' 1STPRESSING ON THE 'EARLIEST' 1ST PRESS
ROLLING STONES LABEL, 'EARLIEST' 1ST PRESS LABEL TYPE, 'RAREST EVER' 1ST PRESS 'ROUNDED' ZIP, 'EARLIEST' 1ST

MY POSTAGE UNDERCHARGE GUARANTEE TO ALL BUYERS (I always undercharge on postage!):- Due to UK Royal Mail's obscene price increases this year - I have had no choice but to increase postage charges a little.

However PLEASE NOTE - my absolute 100% guarantee to you as a buyer - is that I will ALWAYS undercharge postage on everything I send out. Even after the increases, I am still charging you the buyer LESS than I am being charged myself. On each package I send out - the price is clearly stated on the front of the package (please check it when you recieve it!). I also do NOT charge for packaging costs - ONLY for postal costs! And should you find that I have overcharged you postage in ANY way - I will refund DOUBLE the difference. THAT IS MY 100% POSTAL GUARANTEE FOR EACH AND EVERY BUYER! No buyer EVER deserves to be overcharged on postage - and on my listings, I'll make sure they are ALWAYS undercharged. Any questions - please ask!
