The Rolling Stones have launched a limited edition vinyl of their chart-topping, critically acclaimed album, Tattoo You to celebrate 40 years since its initial release. Today, 1,000 copies of the limited edition Tattoo You ‘Stones Red’ vinyl will be released.
The latest instalment in their series of limited edition vinyl records in the ‘Stones Red’ bespoke Pantone colour – all exclusive to the RS No.9 Carnaby store – joins previous sold out release including Goat’s Head Soup, Sticky Fingers, Some Girls, Black & Blue and Blue & Lonesome.
Originally released on August 24 1981, Tattoo You is primarily composed of studio outtakes from previous recording sessions, spanning over a decade. The multi-platinum album reached the top of the US Billboard 200.
Weaving together instrumental jams and snippets of forgotten tracks with modern vocals, the limited edition RS No.9 Carnaby ‘Stones Red’ Vinyl includes iconic tracks Hang Fire, Waiting On A Friend (showcasing jazz saxophone powerhouse Sonny Rollins) and naturally, the opening track, Start Me Up.
