This is an absolute original & mega-rare 1969 FIRST PRESSING of THE ROLLING STONES classic "LET IT BLEED" – not a reissue or bootleg. Original London Stereo NPS-4 with a large (21" x 23") full color poster. SEALED – never opened or played – MINT!
A pristine original copy of the greatest Stones album! Original thick cardboard matte LP cover still factory sealed. The shrink is tight and fully intact with two original breathe holes on front center (see photo). Cover includes a sticker stating “Full Color Rolling Stones Poster Included.” Lower right corner shows tiny ding/crease mark on back (visible in photo). Two minor indents (hardly noticeable) are visible on middle of jacket opening (see photo). This record looks as new as the day it was manufactured and shipped to the store! See photos for all details – the record you see is the record you get. Photo of poster is a stock photo for reference.
It's hard to dispute this as having earned title of the greatest Rolling Stones album. Anyone would find it difficult to detect even a single weak moment in the Jimmy Miller production. The band's finest moment of the 1960s begins with Gimme Shelter and never lets up. Though some may argue the live version of Midnight Rambler [from Ya-Ya's] outperforms the original found in this set, there is little doubt You Can't Always Get What You Want has never been improved. You'll hear Keith Richards command lead vocals for the first time on You Got the Silver and bring the chords of blues legend Robert Johnson to new audiences with a cover of Love in Vain. Despite Brian Jones having long since detached himself from the group, his contributions appear alongside those of newly-acquired guitarist Mick Taylor. Honky Tonk Women, an homage to Hank Williams which appeared in alternate form on this album as Country Honk, would have suited Jones' penchant for early blues which Taylor expertly performs in his absence. During a turbulent period for the Stones and around the globe, this album provided the most appropriate soundtrack to the decade which was about to violently end.
