Coinciding with The Rolling Stones’ announcement today of their upcoming Zip Code Tour of North America, the band has revealed plans to reissue its classic 1971 album Sticky Fingers in a variety of formats and configurations. The remastered record will be released on May 26, two days after The Stones launch their trek at San Diego’s Petco Park.
Among the various versions of Sticky Fingers that will be available are Deluxe Edition and Super Deluxe Edition box sets featuring rare studio outtakes, alternate takes and live recordings. Both packages will include a bonus CD containing an alternate version of “Brown Sugar” with Eric Clapton on guitar, an acoustic rendition of “Wild Horses,” unreleased recordings of “Bitch,” “Can’t You Hear Me Knocking” and “Dead Flowers,” and five live tracks from a 1971 show at the London venue The Roundhouse. The box sets also will boast a DVD featuring video of the band performing two songs at London’s Marquee Club in ’71.
The Super Deluxe Edition also will feature a third CD, titled Get Yer Leeds Lungs Out, offering 13 songs recorded during a March 1971 concert in Leeds, U.K; a seven-inch vinyl single with “Brown Sugar” and “Wild Horses”; four collectible postcards, a poster and a print; a replica cutout of the band; and a 120-page limited-edition hardcover book.
Other versions of Sticky Fingers reissue include a standard single CD; a deluxe two-CD set; single, double and deluxe double vinyl editions; and various digital versions. Check out the full track listings for the reissues at RollingStones.com. A number of the packages will boast a recreation of the album’s unique Andy Warhol-designed cover, which features a real zipper strategically incorporated into an image of Mick Jagger’s jeans-clad lower torso.
