Notes

Sticky Fingers is the ninth British and eleventh American studio album by the English rock band The Rolling Stones. The Stones recorded 22–31 March 1969, 2–4 December 1969 and 17 February – 31 October 1970, released it on 23 April 1971 on their new, and own label Rolling Stones Records. They had been contracted by Decca and London Records in the UK and the US since 1963.

Performed by:
Mick Jagger – lead vocal (all tracks), backing vocals (2–5, 9), acoustic guitar (9, 10), castanets (1), maracas (1), electric guitar (2), percussion (3)
Keith Richards – electric guitar (1, 3–7, 9), acoustic guitar (1, 3, 5, 8, 9), backing vocals (1–7, 9)
Mick Taylor – electric guitar (1, 2, 4–7, 9, 10), acoustic guitar (3)
Charlie Watts – drums (all tracks)
Bill Wyman – bass guitar (all but 5), electric piano (5)

On this album Mick Taylor made his second full-length appearance on a Rolling Stones album (after the live album The Rolling Stones - Get Yer Ya-Ya's Out! (The Rolling Stones In Concert)). It was the first studio album without Brian Jones (5) who died two years earlier.

Model \ Actor Joe Dallesandro was featured and used as the model for the Andy Warhol cover artwork.
The very first UK edition did NOT have the inscription "A Promotone N.V. RECORD" on the label, because the Promotone company was founded only a few months (in September 1971, exactly, in Amsterdam, Netherlands) after the album "Sticky Fingers" was released (April 1971).

        Various versions of this. You need to have "T.M.L" etched in the deadwax, it's the version cut by Doug Sax at The Mastering Labs and it sounds great.Excellent soundstage and deep bass.

          Well Folks, after all these years, just purchased a used copy on eBay to hear for myself compared to my Original U.S. Pressing. Paid $50.00 which included shipping. First thing I noticed, was the Volume had to be Increased Big Time! That is because Mobile Fidelity's pressing was recorded/ pressed at very low volume. However, Once I adjusted the volume with my Audio Equipment, It Sounded Fantastic! Real Clean & could Distinctly Hear All instrumentation Perfectly. Pretty close to actually being in the studio. I'm not kiddin! The Equipment that was used was : My Front Speakers are Delphi Imager's with interconnecting cables. The imaging full dimensional sound they produce is Astonishing. Kind of like being in front of a sound stage at a concert. Also, included was my Definitive Technology Powerfied Sub-woofer which is powered through my Marantz AV 8805 Preamp Audio /Video Tuner that is connected to my Acurus A 125 X 5 Channel Amplifier. My Turntable is a VPI HW-19 Jr. with an Ortofon 2M Black moving magnet phono cartridge with a highly polished Shibata diamond stylus & Audioquest PT-5 tonearm which is connected to my Creek Special edition OBH-8SE MM Phono Pre-amp made in U.K. In closing, I noticed on Album Back cover it states" Mastered with the Ortofon cutting System. Who knows if that made things sound better as I do own that Ortofon Cartridge!

            One word. It has 4 letters. No it’s not that. It’s this.

            Junk.

            Avoid.

            Worst record in my collection.

              Sounds pretty good mostly. Loud, punchy pressing. I will say, however, my record was absolutely SMOTHERED in dust and paper scraps brand-spanking-new. Can companies just please start having stricter QC?!

                I'm finding that the 1977 Stones pressings have stellar soundstage clarity. This and 'Exile' both sound very bold, with a wonderful, robust separation between instruments. You can spot them by the front cover typography on the outer sleeves. They’re a shade of hot pink.

                  I recently brought this release thinking that I was buying a 2015 (wrong info from eBay seller) but having listened to it I think it sounds fantastic. My question is has anyone compared the 2018 to the 2015. It seems that the same crew worked on both editions. I’d be interested to read your comments.

                    A perfect pressing of Sticky Fingers is my white whale.

                    I’ve owned two US first pressings, and the German GEMA pressing. I prefer the GEMA, which is slightly better than the US 1st, but not by much. I find some tracks sound muddy on the US pressing.

                    When I saw the MoFI pressing at a local shop for $65, I decided to take it home and try it out. Let me jump to the chase here and say it does NOT stand up to the other pressings. It is stripped of atmosphere and lacks continuity. It’s over-polished and tinkered with. It’s plastic compared to leather.

                    If you are looking for the white whale like
                    I am, this is definitely not it.

                      I got this one by accident - I ordered (here on discogs) a copy of Sticky Fingers - and when I listend to the record I was very confused... so - is this something valuable? Very strange! Please help me! ;)

                        I had the opportunity to compare with the TML german first pressing, supposedly one of the best pressing. This one doesn't have much less, it is well mastered and sounds great, almost identical. Very nice sounding reissue.
