Fans of The Rolling Stones wanting to upgrade their vinyl collection get their chance today (Friday) with the release of The Studio Albums Vinyl Collection 1971-2016.
Each record in this 20-disc collection has been sourced from the original master tapes and pressed on 180-gram black vinyl. And each sleeve has been faithfully reproduced, including the real zipper on the cover of Sticky Fingers.

The 15 albums are:
- Sticky Fingers (1971)
