Universal Music Enterprises To Release Limited-Edition 2-LP Vinyl Version Of 'Sticky Fingers' Featuring The Rare Alternate Spanish Cover Album Art

Available Exclusively At U.S. Urban Outfitters Retail Outlets

PHILADELPHIA, June 16, 2015 — (PRNewswire) —  When Sticky Fingers was first released in 1971, the iconic Andy Warhol "zipper" album art, was considered too controversial and banned in Spain. The original album art was replaced with, what is referred to as now, the rare and highly coveted "can of fingers" cover.

On Tuesday, June 16th, 2015, Universal Music Enterprises will release a limited number of Sticky Fingers as a Deluxe Edition 2-LP vinyl set with the rare, alternate 1971 Spanish "can of fingers" album art featuring the original 10-track album on one LP, and the second LP with rarities including the alternative version of the chart-topping single 'Brown Sugar' featuring Eric Clapton; unreleased interpretations of 'Bitch,' 'Can't You Hear Me Knocking' and 'Dead Flowers;' an acoustic take on the anthemic 'Wild Horses,' and four tracks recorded live at The Roundhouse in 1971 including 'Honky Tonk Women' and 'Live With Me.'

Only 3000 of this special edition of Sticky Fingers will be pressed and will only be available in the U.S. at Urban Outfitters. Copies are available for purchase online Tuesday, June 16th, at  UrbanOutfitters.com and available at U.S. Urban Outfitters retail locations starting Wednesday, June 24th. Outside of the U.S., fewer copies of this special pressing will also be made available through Direct to Consumer (D2C) channels only.

Sticky Fingers was recorded in Muscle Shoals, Alabama, Stargroves, Mick's country home and Olympic Studios in London and produced by regular confidant Jimmy Miller. 'Sticky Fingers' was released shortly after the Stones became exiled in the south of France, leaving Britain after a sensational farewell tour.

Sticky Fingers has been repeatedly hailed as one of the Stones' all-time great albums, capturing their trademark combination of swagger and tenderness in a superb collection. It continued the incredible outpouring of creative energy that had produced 1968's 'Beggars Banquet' and 'Let It Bleed' in 1969. After 'Sticky Fingers', the Stones' relocation to the south of France led to the double album masterpiece 'Exile On Main St.' The highly acclaimed 'Sticky Fingers' showcased the ever more inventive song writing of Mick Jagger and Keith Richards and formidable guitar licks from Mick Taylor.

On April 23, 1971, 504 days after that first session in Alabama, Sticky Fingers was released, cheered on by media and public alike. "It is the latest beautiful chapter in the continuing story of the greatest rock group in the world," wrote Rolling Stone.

As the album hit the shops that spring, 'Brown Sugar' hit the charts, and by early May, Sticky Fingers had become the band's sixth UK #1 LP. Its four-week reign was matched by its performance in the U.S., and it also raced to the top in Australia, Canada and through much of Europe. As the aura grew around this essential part of the Stones' epic story, the album was inducted into the Grammy © Hall of Fame and became one of their four titles in the top 100 of Rolling Stone's critics' poll of the 500 greatest albums of all time.
