Description

    Rolling Stones "Street Fighting Man" Picture Sleeve Production Art Materials (London, 1968). The picture sleeve for the American release of the Stones' "Street Fighting Man", London 45-909, is considered to be the one of rarest Rolling Stones items. It was originally released in August 1968, right before the disastrous Democratic National Convention in Chicago, and featured a photo of police in riot gear pounding a few young heads. It was quickly withdrawn, and today, a NM copy might set you back $10,000 or so. Here are some very rare production materials originally used in printing that sleeve: two one-color negatives, one consisting of type, the other of the infamous police photo; and a piece of blue-line paper, used to check the type from the first negative. The negatives are in Very Good condition; the type negative is heavily marked with opaque red, to fill in hairlines and specks. The blueline is in Good condition, with a 4.25" tear at the top.
