50 Day Song Challenge– #14 A song from an album with brilliant cover art

Stick Fingers album cover
This cover had a real zip on it!

The Rolling Stones:  Sticky Fingers, 1971

Before MP3s, CDs, when 8-track cartridges still existed and cassettes were cutting edge technology, when you bought a vinyl album you got a 12″ x 12″ piece of art along with it. This one probably sold as many copies of this album as the songs contained in its package (Sorry, I had to say it…).

I remember chaos among mums and other buzz-kill type adults back then because this album cover featured a real zip that you could open!   It’s no surprise to me that vinyl albums are still being released, and old favourites are being re-mastered and re-issued in this format – there is just no substitute for the thrill of coming home, ripping off the plastic and carefully placing your new prize on the turntable.

My favourite track from this album has now become one of those evergreen songs where the previously buzz-kill adults now mortify their teenage offspring by channelling Mick Jagger at weddings, bah-mitzvahs et al, and their Satanic Majesties all qualify for a bus pass and a pension.  Strange days.
