The Rolling Stones - No.2 - UK -1A/-2A PASTE-OVER COVER LP MINT
- Item # 1138848
- Qty Available 1
This superb UK mono pressing of their 2nd studio album dates from February 1969, but uses original 1965 labels.
It is on the un-grooved red & silver Decca label: LK.4661
Matrix numbers: XARL-6619-1A & XARL-6620-2A
Stamper codes: 1/HG & 2B/HI
Vinyl weight: 152g
Housed in a front laminated 'Printed in England' cover, which has the 'censored' pasted-over rear panel.
This paste-over occurred because the original text caused offense, chiefly to the blind. The original back cover included this passage:
"If you don’t have the bread, see that blind man knock him on the head, steel his wallet and low and behold you have loot, if you put in the boot, good, another one sold!"
Decca was forced to change the text, omitting that section and, not wanting to waste already printed covered, pasted a revised slick over the top of the original - as can be seen above. The offensive text was removed permanently from later editions.
Complete with original poly-lined inner-sleeve, date coded as '2-69' (February 1969).
Labels: MINT -
Just a single tiny spindle trails on each label.
Both sides are unmarked and factory-fresh in both strong daylight AND directly beneath halogen light.
Played just ONCE to tape, all tracks sound flawless with no trace of any audible wear. You will not be disappointed.
Cover: MINT -
Essentially 'shop new' with just a small bruise to the lower left corner preventing a higher grade.
Inner-sleeve: MINT -
As good as these get.
