I would say these are probably my top three records:

England's Newest Hitmakers - White Label Promo w/ Photo in excellent condition

Aftermath - Decca "Shadow Cover"

Songs of the Rolling Stones - ABKCO Promo only album (2nd Cover)


The one that got away: Keith's guitar pick at Roseland Ballroom. He threw one which bounced off my glasses!

Very first pressing of the very first UK album - which means that it has the wrong/long version of "Tell Me". Condition is "distressed", but that matters not as it's also fully autographed.

12 page fold out Pixerama booklet

Savile Theatre ticket stub

Original circular Knebworth poster

1971 UK Tour poster

"I Wanna Be Your Man" cw "Stones" (should be "Stoned")

(Almost) Life Sized Mick Jagger standup from the release/promotion for Sticky Fingers.


For the win.thumbs up

Too kind! I should also have included my (two) 1973 European tour T-shirts (that still just about fit).

9. 1983 German Decca Box Set w/ C#cksucker Blues 45

I've been a fan since the end of 1963 after hearing I Wanna Be Your Man (I was just over 8 and half years old).
I therefore have quite a bit of memorabilia.
Thinking hard to single out what might be the top 3, I've picked -- (no order)

Both (Bestime) jigsaws - titled 'Stones For Ever' and 'A Welcome From The Fans'.
Complete set of The Rolling Stones Monthlies.
Complete set of Rolling Stones A & B C bubble gum cards.

(Apologies, I have 'sneeked' an extra item in there).

I had a VOODOO LOUNGE desk top cut out and a hanging mobile but they got destroyed.

So...

1. ON THE ROAD by Chet Flippo - a book I will die with.

2. STILL LIFE... import (CD)? I have no idea how I came across it but it's a bit different than the North American release.

3. SPARKS WILL FLY 1994 bootleg. I have SEVENTH OF JULY, which is pretty damn good, but I love the version of Shattered from the 8-14-1994 show so that's why it's tops (and they excellently screw up Street Fighting Man).

I have that Voodoo mobile gaslight hanging from the ceiling at my studio, along with a Licks inflatable blimp.

I also have the Miss You 12" single (b/w Faraway Eyes),as well as the If I was a Dancer (pt. 2) 12" single (b/w instrumental version) - both bought around '81.
And the tongue shaped vinyl of She Was Hot (b/w I think I'm Going Mad) bought when Undercover was released.
And 7" singles of Waiting on A Friend (b/w T&A), and Respectable (b/w Whip).

Loads of other stuff, but none I would consider "rare" in comparison to some of the other stuff I've seen in this thread...
I suppose my Vredenburg wristband could be considered rare - it says "Lucky Me" on it, and the actual ticket is really nice and colorful (I think all the Netherlands '03 tix were the same).

And of course the Licks era bobbleheads...two sets! smiling smiley

Some really really kool stuff in there. I would love to see some photos of stonesstein's stuff. most of it I have never heard of.

and totally awesome display. totally totally awesome display. would be right in front of whatever around my house. I wonder what the story was on that, aside from it obviously being a record store display item. I never saw one in any record store at that time, not that that means much. Totally f'in awesome.

I didn't consider various 7" and 12" singles through the years, I have a small crate or two of those, and some stickers and etc, but nothing I really consider rare. Just long time crate digger stuff.

My personal favourite rarity (though not especially valuable) would be the wristband I received when attending the “Light the Fuse” show in Toronto, 2005.

Otherwise, I enjoy my early vinyl boots like “Live’r Than You’ll Ever Be.”

The rarest piece of rock memorabilia I have is Stones-related but not Stones exactly. I have all the material used to create Nicky Hopkins’ “Tin Man Was a Dreamer” LP jacket. I don’t have the original paintings but I have large, colour photo negatives of them as well as the typed material to create all the notes on the sleeve, with hand-written corrections to various things. I’m actually going to sell these soon so if anyone has any advice on selling rock memorabilia I would appreciate it.

Not much rare stuff. Some of my dearest things, however, are:

- The tongue-shaped She Was Hot / Think I'm Going Mad vinyl-single

- The first pressing of Come On / I Want To Be Loved (Swedish or danish edition with green cover)

- «Life», signed by Keith.

What kind of condition is your tongue shaped picture disc in?
On mine the red ink has leached through to the candle side.
I've kept it stored in its original PVC sleeve since I bought it.

I have a couple of copies of this and the brown sugar PD from the same period. SWH is fine but BS has leached on one of them. Weird. You see a lot of that with the Brown Sugar but I haven't noticed that on the She Was Hot.

What's different about the "Still Life" import? Is it just the packaging or is the actual tracklist different? I have that "Sparks Will Fly" boot and the "Seventh of July" as well. I don't remember the SFM screw up on 8/14/94...I'll have to listen to it again...but I do remember really liking Shattered on that tour.

Is "Sparks Will Fly" the same show as "Miami Dice"?
