A BIT OF HISTORY: SPANISH EDITION OF ‘STICKY FINGERS’

Given Franco’s regime in Spain at the time, the original Spanish version of STICKY FINGERS, instead of the original album art, which focused on a male model’s crotch, censorship in the country took it to feature a different cover showing severed fingers floating in a can of ‘Fowler’s Treacle’. Additionally, the song ‘Sister Morphine’ wasn’t included in the album, being replaced by a live take of Chuck Berry’s ‘Let It Rock’ recorded in Leeds in March of 1971 (same version of the Brown Sugar/Bitch/Let It Rock single that came out a week before the album)
