Tattoo You. Xmas gift 1981. Chosen by me after seeing "Start Me Up" -video.
Then in following months I bought randomly any item of the Stones I could find. They were strange and rare (by afterwards judging): 2lp Got Live if You Want it/Stone Age, Around And Around (German complication, mentioned in the above posts, Best of The Rolling Stones (Finnish complication), their first album with a poster and a cover of Mick 1970 live... It's a shame I have sold those away (after realizing that they were second rate releases).. as one could see there wasn't so many their 70's output - not even mentioning the golden period - available at the record shops in Finland that time... I remember buying Beggars Banquet and Exile by mail, after reading that those were their true masterpieces.. that was spring 1982, and jeez what a thrill it was open the post package, wacthing those incredible sleeves and putting the records in...
