Beast Of Burden - Withdrawn Picture Sleeve

ROLLING STONES Beast Of Burden (Rare 1978 US wide centred STOCK COPY 7" vinyl single, also including When The Whip Comes Down, housed in the legendary withdrawn picture sleeve depicting a lion sitting on a damsel in distress [Maureen O'Sullivan ?]. This single was withdrawn and all the picture sleeves scrapped soon after the promo copies began to be sent out as some sensitive souls in the US felt that the image displayed depicted bestiality [!]. Coming hot on the heels of the threat of legal action from the celebrities depicted on the original 'Some Girls' LP cover, I suppose the band were not prepared to take the chance on yet more legal bills & decided to scrap the sleeve instead. Very few escaped into the wild and this has since become second only to the 'Street Fighting Man' sleeve in terms of rarity value. This copy here is in perfect condition, with just the tiniest scuffing to the bottom edge & free from any creasing, writing, stains or splits. The 7" itself is also in near 'as new' condition, with both it & the sleeve being stored safely away for the last thirty years waiting to be found. Here it is. This is the first copy that we had ever been able to stock [not for want of trying either!] and we are proud to be able to offer this one to you in fantastic near 'as new' condition RS19309)
