F•L•O•W•E•R•S 🌷🌷🌷🌷🌷 & Let it Bleed w/ the poster! PSA** please see my story for my new request #vinylcommunity ••• ok back to Flowers, it was released in June of 1967 as a compilation which included the songs that were not on the US versions of the Stones’ studio albums “Aftermath” (1966) & Between the Buttons (early 1967). There were three tracks that never were released “Ride On, Baby,” “My Girl” & “Sittin’ On a Fence.” The album was put together to kind of be a promotional album intended for the American audience. This album was a good introduction to the talents & the artistry of the Stones. When compiling the list of the 2004 “The Rolling Stone Album Guide,” the author Tom Moon wrote that “it holds together as one of the Stones’ best records, a concept album about the social scene that gathers around five rich young men with an appetite for sex, drugs, & gossip.” It is an essential album to own, especially if you are a Stones’ fan/collector. “Ruby Tuesday” & “Let’s Spend the Night Together” were featured on the US BTB, “Have You Seen Your Mother…” was a single released in 1966, “Lady Jane” featured on Aftermath, “Out of Time” this album features an abridged alternative which was on the British Aftermath, “My Girl” written by Smokey Robinson recorded in May 1965 w/ strings added in fall 1966. “Backstreet Girl,” “Please Go Home” were on the British BTB, “Mother’s Helper” & “Take It or Leave It” were on the British Aftermath. The other two I spoke about earlier were exclusive to this album. 🎂Let It Bleed w/ the poster is rare. The album itself was released in 1969 & regarded as one of the Stones’ greatest albums. It featured the hit songs “You Can’t Always Get What You Want” & “Gimme Shelter” which is actually my fave Stones song of all time. The album also provided the song “Country Honk” which was reworked and rereleased as a single with the more familiar title, “Honky Tonk Woman.” This cohesive album is stunning and I am so lucky to own two beautiful copies with both types of inserts •• do you have any albums w/ rare inserts? Do you love the @therollingstones ?! 💕 are you having a good Monday?? 🤗 #vinyl #therollingstones #letitbleed #flowers #60s
