[Song from a band beginning with R]
The opening track from the Stones’ 11th studio album ‘Sticky Fingers’ released in April 1971. The controversial album cover wasn’t exactly banned in the UK – but it was covered up in some places; certainly in my local Woolworths! But the main culprit – the zipper – had more to give. Because later that year, after retailers complained that the the zipper was causing damage to the vinyl because of the way albums were stacked for shipping, later pressings had it moved it to ‘half-mast’ first.That just made things worse of course! Mary Whitehouse had a field-day!
