History[edit] With the end of their Decca/London association at hand, The Rolling Stones were finally free to release their albums (cover art and all) as they pleased. However, their departing manager Allen Klein
Allen Klein
dealt the group a major blow when they discovered that they had inadvertently signed over their entire 1960s copyrights to Klein and his company ABKCO, which is how all of their material from 1963's "Come On" to Get Yer Ya-Ya's Out! The Rolling Stones
The Rolling Stones
in Concert has since been released solely by ABKCO Records. The band would remain incensed with Klein for decades for that act. When Decca informed The Rolling Stones
The Rolling Stones
that they were owed one more single, they cheekily submitted a track called "Cocksucker Blues",[5] which was guaranteed to be refused. Instead, Decca released the two-year-old Beggars Banquet
Beggars Banquet
track "Street Fighting Man" while Klein retained dual copyright ownership in conjunction with The Rolling Stones of "Brown Sugar" and "Wild Horses". Recording[edit] Although sessions for Sticky Fingers

began in earnest in March 1970, The Rolling Stones

in December 1969. "Sister Morphine", cut during Let It Bleed's sessions earlier in March of that year, had been held over from this release. Much of the recording for Sticky Fingers

was made with The Rolling Stones' mobile studio unit in Stargroves

during the summer and autumn of 1970. Early versions of songs that would eventually appear on Exile on Main St.

posing in an ad with covers of Sticky Fingers, with the original artwork, in 1971, from left to right: Charlie Watts, Mick Taylor, Bill Wyman, Keith Richards, and Mick Jagger

The album's artwork emphasises the suggestive innuendo of the Sticky Fingers title, showing a close-up of a jeans-clad male crotch with the visible outline of a large penis; the cover of the original (vinyl LP) release featured a working zipper and perforations around the belt buckle that opened to reveal a sub-cover image of cotton briefs. The vinyl release displayed the band's name and album title along the image of the belt; behind the zipper the white briefs were seemingly rubber stamped in gold with the stylized name of American pop artist Andy Warhol, below which read "THIS PHOTOGRAPH MAY NOT BE—ETC."[7] While the artwork was conceived by Warhol, photography was by Billy Name and design was by Craig Braun. Braun and his team had other ideas, such as wrapping the album in rolling paper - a concept later used by Cheech & Chong in Big Bambu
Big Bambu
- but Jagger was enthused by Warhol's cover with a zipper. Execution was then handled as Warhol sent Braun Polaroid pictures of a model in tight jeans.[8] The cover photo of a male model's crotch clad in tight blue jeans was assumed by many fans to be an image of Mick Jagger, but the people actually involved at the time of the photo shoot claim that Warhol had several different men photographed (Jagger was not among them) and never revealed which shots he used. Among the candidates, Jed Johnson, Warhol's lover at the time, denied it was his likeness, although his twin brother Jay is a possibility. Those closest to the shoot, and subsequent design, name Factory artist and designer Corey Tippin as the likeliest candidate. Warhol "superstar" Joe Dallesandro
Joe Dallesandro
claims to have been the model.[9] After retailers complained that the zipper was causing damage to the vinyl (from stacked shipments of the record), the zipper was "unzipped" slightly to the middle of the record, where damage would be minimised.[8]

The Rolling Stones' logo, designed by John Pasche and modified by Craig Braun,[8] was introduced in 1971.

For the initial vinyl release the album title and band name is smaller and at the top on the American release. The UK release the title and band name are in bigger letters and on the left. The album features the first usage of the "tongue & lips" logo of Rolling Stones Records, originally designed by John Pasche in 1970. Jagger suggested to Pasche that he copy the outstuck tongue of the Hindu
Hindu
goddess Kali, and while Pasche first felt it would date the image back to the Indian culture craze of the 1960s, seeing Kali
Kali
made him change his mind. Before the end of that year his basic version was faxed to Craig Braun by Marshall Chess. The black & white copy was then modified by Braun and his team, resulting in today's most popular red version, the slim one with the two white stripes on the tongue.[8] Critic Sean Egan has said of the logo, "Without using the Stones' name, it instantly conjures them, or at least Jagger, as well as a certain lasciviousness that is the Stones' own ... It quickly and deservedly became the most famous logo in the history of popular music."[10] The tongue and lips design was part of a package that, in 2003, VH1
VH1
named the "No. 1 Greatest Album
Album
Cover" of all time.[11] Alternative version and covers[edit] In Spain, the original cover was censored by the Franco regime

and replaced with a "Can of fingers" cover, designed by John Pasche and Phil Jude,[12] and "Sister Morphine" was replaced by a live version of Chuck Berry's "Let It Rock". This version was released on the compilation album Rarities 1971–2003
Rarities 1971–2003
in 2005. In 1992, the LP release of the album in Russia featured a similar treatment as the original cover; but with Cyrillic

Sticky Fingers
Sticky Fingers
hit the number one spot on the British charts in May 1971, remaining there for four weeks before returning at number one for a further week in mid June. In the US, the album hit number one within days of release, and stayed there for four weeks. In Germany it was one of only two non-German albums to reach number one in 1971.[citation needed] In a contemporary review for the Los Angeles Times, music critic Robert Hilburn said that although Sticky Fingers
Sticky Fingers
is one of the best rock albums of the year, it is only "modest" by the Rolling Stones' standards and succeeds on the strength of songs such as "Bitch" and "Dead Flowers", which recall the band's previously uninhibited, furious style.[22] Jon Landau, writing in Rolling Stone, felt that it lacks the spirit and spontaneity of the Rolling Stones' previous two albums and, apart from "Moonlight Mile", is full of "forced attempts at style and control" in which the band sounds disinterested, particularly on formally correct songs such as "Brown Sugar".[23] In a positive review, Lynn Van Matre of the Chicago Tribune
Chicago Tribune
viewed the album as the band "at their raunchy best" and wrote that, although it is "hardly innovative", it is consistent enough to be one of the year's best albums.[24] Sticky Fingers
Sticky Fingers
was voted the second best album of the year in The Village Voice's annual Pazz & Jop critics poll for 1971.[25] Lester Bangs
Lester Bangs
voted it number one in the poll and said that it was his most played album of the year.[26] Robert Christgau, the poll's creator, ranked the album 17th on his own year-end list.[27] In a 1975 article for The Village Voice, Christgau suggested that the release was "triffling with decadence", but might be the Rolling Stones' best album, approached only by Exile on Main St.
Exile on Main St.
(1972).[28] In his 1980 review of the album, he wrote that it reflected how unapologetic the band was after the Altamont Free Concert
Altamont Free Concert
and that, despite the concession to sincerity with "Wild Horses", songs such as "Can't You Hear Me Knocking" and "I Got the Blues" are as "soulful" as "Good Times", and their cover of "You Gotta Move" is on-par with their previous covers of "Prodigal Son" and "Love in Vain".[15] In 1994, Sticky Fingers
Sticky Fingers
was ranked number ten in Colin Larkin's All Time Top 1000 Albums. He stated, "Dirty rock like this has still to be bettered, and there is still no rival in sight."[29] In a retrospective review, Q magazine
Q magazine
said that the album was "the Stones at their assured, showboating peak ... A magic formula of heavy soul, junkie blues and macho rock".[19] NME
NME
wrote that it "captures the Stones bluesy swagger" in a "dark-land where few dare to tread".[17] Record Collector
Record Collector
magazine said that it showcases Jagger and Richards as they "delve even further back to the primitive blues that first inspired them and step up their investigations into another great American form, country."[19] In his review for Goldmine magazine, Dave Thompson wrote that the album still is superior to "most of The Rolling Stones’ catalog".[30] In 2003, Sticky Fingers was listed as No. 63 on Rolling Stone
Rolling Stone
magazine's list of The 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.[31] In 1994, Sticky Fingers
Sticky Fingers
was remastered and reissued by Virgin Records. This remaster was initially released in a Collector's Edition CD, which replicated in miniature many elements of the original vinyl album packaging, including the zipper. Sticky Fingers

was remastered again in 2009 by Universal Music Enterprises and in 2011 by Universal Music Enterprises in a Japanese-only SHM-SACD version. In June 2015, the Rolling Stones reissued Sticky Fingers

(in its 2009 remastering) in a variety of formats to coincide with a new concert tour, the Zip Code Tour. The Deluxe and Super Deluxe versions of the reissue featured previously unreleased bonus material (depending on the format): alternative takes of some songs, live tracks recorded on 14 March 1971 at the Roundhouse, London, and the complete 13 March 1971 show at Leeds

It re-entered the UK Albums chart at #7, extending their UK Top 10 album chart span beyond 51 years and 2 months since their self-titled debuted at #7 on 23 April 1964.[32][33][34][35] It also re-entered the US Albums chart at #5, extending their US Top 10 album chart span beyond 50 years and 6 months since 12 x 5 on 14 December 1964.[32][33][34][35] Track listing[edit] All songs written by Mick Jagger
