Sticky Fingers

Album by The Rolling Stones

Sticky Fingers is the ninth studio album by English rock band The Rolling Stones, released in April 1971. It is the band's first album of the 1970s and its first release on the band's newly-formed label, Rolling Stones Records, after having been contracted since 1963 with Decca Records in the UK and London Records in the US. It is also Mick Taylor's first full-length appearance on a Rolling Stones album, and the first not to feature any contributions from founding guitarist Brian Jones.

  • Sticky Fingers was a sensation, no. 1 in America and Europe—proof that the Rolling Stones would survive into the uncertain seventies. There wasn’t a lot of great pop music around in 1971. American rock fans were preoccupied with bombastic Grand Funk Railroad and the macabre theatrics of Alice Cooper. In England, fans had Deep Purple, Humble Pie, Rod Stewart, and the Faces. London’s glam movement was moving out of its underground beginnings of Warholesque, cross-dressing rockers (T. Rex, David Bowie) mocking sexual norms in high heels and glittery makeup. With powerful and daring “Brown Sugar” and “Bitch,” with their Memphis-style horns, orchestral colors, and Mick Taylor’s cool blue guitar, the Stones now positioned themselves as keepers of a hard rock flame they’d ignited almost a decade earlier.
