The Rolling Stones
It's Only Rock 'N' Roll

  (Item #: rolliitson_1804_2) 

Our Price: $169.99

  • An outstanding early pressing with Double Plus (A++) sound from start to finish - farily quiet vinyl too
  • On the better pressings the sound is cleaner and clearer, yet at the same time even richer than others we played
  • The superbly talented Andy Johns engineered, so you can be sure that this is the sound the Stones were looking for
  • "Throughout, the Stones wear their title as the "World's Greatest Rock & Roll Band" with a defiant smirk, which makes the bitter cynicism of "If You Can't Rock Me" and the title track all the more striking, and the reggae experimentation... all the more enjoyable."
