Sticky Fingers on tape

After writing the Love You Live cassette post, I came to think of it that also different issues of Sticky Fingers on cassette are quite peculiar, coverwise. Most of the cassettes will have a picture of the famous Warhol jeans cover on front. But in 1971 […]

Love You Yellow

I have no idea what exactly is the deal with this UK issue of Love You Live on cassette, dating from 1989. You can find it with the cover in the original colours, but also in  a version where the cover has a different colour scheme. All same […]
