Black and Blue is my favorite. I think it captures them best.

I've been working all summer on the IORR 1000 piece puzzle, what a bitch...but of all the ones available I chose this one because it had the classiest look. It will look great hung up...#1 drinking smiley

‘It’s Only Rock ‘n Roll’ (1974): Now for something completely different, this time a painting by Belgian artist Guy Peellaert, capturing the Stones as rock deities adored by Grecian handmaidens. David Bowie was so taken with Peellaert’s work that he got him to do ‘Diamond Dogs’ and rushed it out four months before the Stones got their act together

2nd: Original Some Girls cover

The Decca Aftermath sleeve is, in my opinion, their very finest; very 60’s, and very different. I also particularly like their first two Decca covers: The Rolling Stones and The Rolling Stones No.2 No printed text was necessary. Their brooding group portrait told the British record-buying public all they needed to know! Their U.S.label, London, absolutely butchered their sleeves.

Ridiculous or Cheezy:

Worst : No Security. Game over, I won.

The best to me is Stripped, for personal reasons.

LOVE this image, but Ronnie’s eyes look vacant in some fashion. Just an odd look in them

I was 15 years old and begged my dad to drive me to the record store the day Love You Live was released. The cover was gross and I kept thinking what the hell is this garbage. I actually love the cover now but Warhol was right saying Jagger diminished it with the lettering.
