Sticky Fingers, Exile On Main St. and Some Girls half-speed mastered
When The Rolling Stones announced standalone half-speed mastered vinyl reissues of some of their albums back in March, a few titles were notable by their absence, such as Sticky Fingers, Exile On Main St. and Some Girls. All three are now available to pre-order individually and will be released alongside the other ten album in June.
Sticky Fingers was issued in 1971 and features the singles ‘Brown Sugar’ and ‘Wild Horses’. It was the first record on the band’s new Rolling Stones Records label. Exile On Main St (the single was ‘Tumblin’ Dice’) was a double album and issued the following year in 1972. Some Girls is from 1978 and features ‘Miss You’ and ‘Beast of Burden’.
For some reason, 1973’s Goats Head Soup isn’t being reissued separately, so at the time of writing is the only album that you still have to buy the box set to acquire a half-speed mastered pressing. Rather strange.
Sticky Fingers, Exile On Main St. and Some Girls will all be reissued on half-speed mastered vinyl on 26 June, along with the ten other previously announced titles.
