If there was ever a ‘Mount Rushmore’ created of bands, there’s no doubt the Rolling Stones would have to be among the artists etched in stone. Even now, over 50 years after their inception, the band continues to tour and seemingly haven’t missed a step. With a back catalogue as vast as their’s, it has produced some of the most collectable vinyl and memorabilia we see here, and below are just a handful of the highlights.

But Naked: Incredible and unique collection of unreleased artwork for preliminary design concepts of the sleeve artwork for a 1995 album titled Rolling Stones But Naked – this title was later changed and thealbum released as Stripped. The artwork boards vary in size and each shows a different visual concept for the ‘finished’ cover. Viewing these some 20 years after their creation it’s incredible that they were rejected at all. There are 15 boards with depictions ranging from Album Visual, CD Album Visual, Box For CD (Slip Case), Box For CD with Snake Skin Texture + Belly Band, etc; a further 5 presentation boards each displaying a different pair of 3-D artwork visuals; 4 more separate colour prints each with 2 design concepts; a black plastic folder titled ROLLING STONES, “BUT NAKED” PRESENTATION displaying 8 further concepts – these are individually titled and include Underwear cover, Cigaratte (sic) cover, Bondage cover 1, Kertez cover, Cigaratte cover 2, Bondage cover 2, Leventhal Doll cover, and Rheims Bedroom cover. Finally, a quantity of 35 sheets of A3 paper designs in colour and black & white; these are hand annotated concepts depicting ‘Images as reaction to the title’, ‘Tour Pass ideas’, ‘X-ray idea’, ‘Richard Misrach images’, ‘Helmut Newton images’, ‘Naked packaging’,’ Fluxus blind image’, ‘Images using live photos’ and ‘Basquiat paintings’. In total there are over 40 different unreleased artwork designs for the But Naked cover, with the additional paper items providing an interesting insight into the concepts and thought process that inform an album cover project such as this. Truly a one-off stunning collection that could simply never be repeated!

ROLLING STONES Their Satanic Majesties Request (Rare complete 1968 first Japanese issue 10-track deep groove stereo LP, manufactured & imported directly from England with custom made green labels which bear all the hallmarks of a DeccaUK press[‘Made In England’ perimeter print, machine stamped ‘ZAL’ matrices in the run-outs] but have the ‘London/FFRR’ export logo at the top. The front laminated gatefold sleeve has the 3D diffraction grating & red flame inner & must be one oftherarest variants to find, also having been made in Britain with the London logo on the back & the ‘NPS2’ catalogue number [not the same printed sleeve as the UK mono/stereo versions]. Includes the all important Japanese/lyric insert printed in Japan with the “2,200” yen price & “(c)1968” date. This copy comes with what may be one of the rarest obi-strips going; issued with no back, this obi was easily discarded or lost and when questioned, a Tokyo dealer informed us that whilst he had seen the occasional one [he was older than the record!] they were very few and far between, which is a shame as the font and design of this particular obi is steeped in the Sixties and informs us that this is a limited release. See ‘more info’ for condition… NPS2).
