    Still the best Stones lineup of all time. Mick Taylor was amazing here and on Exile.

    I remember a bunch of record dealers loved and hated this album: loved it because it was the Stones and it sold like crazy; hated it because a number of copies had to be returned because the zipper marred copies that were toward the bottom of the cartons while they were being shipped. Later copies either put an extra piece of cardboard under the zipper for protection or made it of cardboard and it was not a working zipper.

      I wonder if that’s why so many LP copies of the album had skips in the same place – during the guitar solo that closes out “Bitch.” That was the first track on side 2, and thinking about it now, it was in the approximate place where the handle of the zipper would be pressing into the vinyl.

    Other than owning the original 1971 LP with its real working zipper, I have also bought and kept sealed and well protected, the 2015 “Sticky Fingers” Limited Edition ( DBL album including a bonus record ). This collectable re-release still features the real working zipper, with one lovely exception : The metal pulling tab is now an actual replica of the traditional Rolling Stones “tongue” ! Cheers !

    One of the greatest albums of all time. With Mick Taylor in the line-up, the Stones created a whole new dimension of Blues rock The followed up, Exile In Main St was great, but I actually like Goats Head Soup even better. The Mick Taylor years are definitely the Stones Golden Years. They were “The Greatest Rock n Roll Band” with Mick Taylor in the line-up.

    Totally agree the Taylor years were the best although some of the early stuff was fantastic with Brian Jones. Nothing quite reaches the greatness of sticky fingers, exile, goats head soup, but I also wanna give a shout out to It’s only rock ‘n’ roll, which has some of their best songs, such as time waits for no one, and one of my favorites luxury
