I've read there are only about a few hundred copies of this promotional album and even less for the Decca version. I know a couple that are up for sale on eBay, discogs, etc. I would kill to be able to afford to purchase a copy for my collection!! Anyone here have a copy??

[www.Discogs.com] , [www.eBay.com] , [www.eBay.com] , [www.eBay.com] . Currently 26 for sale - [www.Discogs.com] - but most of them are the different Australian RS-3006, not the rare U.S. RSD-1.

One is selling on discogs for $220 without the cover though. I wonder if that's worth a purchase. eye popping smiley

I have a couple of the Aussie ones, and a fake of the actual US version. Two hundred were rumoured to be printed of each and given to radio stations.

You have to be really careful when buying as there are fakes out there.

I almost pulled the trigger on one in Fair condition for $350 on Ebay but decided not to. Wondering if I made the right decision but this thing was grotty.

Are the Aussie albums legitimate releases?

Yes, the Australian copies are official. I bought one when it was new, but sold it recently. It doesn't have much value. The cover picture is cool though. Also, there's conflicting numbers on the USA release. For years it was reported to be 200, then lately some people say it's many more. However it's the UK version that's really rare for those that don't know it. I've seen it on eBay a handful of times and always more than $1000.

There were 200 UK copies and 200 US copies, all sleeves were printed in the USA and therefore 200 Briain copies have different serial than the sleeve. Rarest are five copies that were signed by all Stones. The Australian version is not rare at all.

I've probably said this already, but a reprint of this would make a great Record Store Day item. It's even got the ideal serial number prefix.

As always, discogs proves an essential resource:


[www.discogs.com]

So RSD a high over $3000 and RSM never sold on discogs...clearly the rarer of the siblings!

I own both, and the RSM-1 is acknowledged in the collecting world to be the rarer of the 2 LPs.

There were approximately 12-15 RSM-1s signed by the whole band (except Bill signed for Charlie!) at a press event in October(?) 69. There were also hand-alterations to the publishing printing on the back covers of some of the RSM-1s, because publishing credits were either wrong or unauthorized, as I recall. www.stonesondecca.com will tell all.

The RSD-1 (US version) is known to be much more available, but also much more counterfeited. The phakes tend not to have matrixes.

Jan Richardsson's incredible Stones on Decca is the state of the art website to research these.

SS...are these the most valuable in your collection? How long have you had them and when did you get them?

I have posted this before in another thread, same topic. I had two of these albums in my hands at two different times. It was at second coming records, mass Ave in Cambridge ma back in the late 1980s. Both times I convinced myself that a bootleg of a show was worth more than a compilation. Damn. Anyways I have a question, if this was a promo album for American radio stations for the upcoming American tour, why is Brian on the cover? When was the tour planned? When was the album made?

I would say b/c all of the songs have Brian Jones on them (except for Love In Vain).

Stones On Decca is fantastic. Also, I am so jealous you own both the London and Decca copies!!

Yes of course, that's what I thought but just found it a little strange but I guess it makes sense.

Treacle, blessings upon you!!!! No, I am blessed to have been lucky enough to pick up other things that eclipse these, though RSM is in the top 10!!!

I obtained the RSD-1 in 1995 and the RSM-1 in about 2007, I think.

IMPORTANT to all - beware of phakes!!!!!!

Treacle, shine on you crazy diamond!!!!!

Thx SS...the early 2000s were where I went on a rampage and bought almost everything, every DECCA 45, every US picture sleeve, variations of the London Albums etc., virtually every US release post GHS sealed (and unsealed of course) and a few London albums sealed (early 70s copies I think).

Anyway it's been a fun ride but my zeal in collecting those expensive esoteric releases has waned a bit...other priorities have taken over!

Fantastic information!

There seems to be great uncertainty about the signatures through, with the most likely conclusion that these were done by somebody from the Stones office.

That reminds of a remark by Ron Schneider in his book, that for as long as he worked with the band none of the Stones would sign anything, and that he and members from the Stones office did all signatures.

There are a few thousand of RSD 1 (LONDON)

Only 200 RSM 1 (DECCA) are for the UK. And 20 of them are signed by the stones.
That members from the stones office signed this 20 lp's, I don't believe that.

Many, many years ago, (technically in the last millennium) there was a London RSD1 cover without a record on eBay. I snapped it up for $50 thinking oh well, I will never be able to afford a whole one, let alone a “proper” Decca one. Literally the next week there was a record without the cover! Another $25 later and I had my first complete promo album! I now have four US ones and four UK ones ;-)
