The Rolling Stones 12 x 5 Limited Edition Framed Lithograph + Clear Colored LP
Never before released, this highly collectible framed lithograph and LP set, including a certificate of authenticity, is offered on a first-come, first-served basis - no additional copies will be produced after the initial press run is exhausted. The hand-numbered, framed museum-quality print is derived from artwork used on The Rolling Stones record album 12 x 5. The exclusive cover art print also includes a matching, limited edition clear vinyl LP of the album.
Originally released in 1964, 12 x 5 is the moment when the Rolling Stones evolved from boys into men. The British veterans' sophomore record finds Mick, Keith, and Co. progressing from a blues covers band into having an identity of their own. The performances within, ranging from a kick-starting cover of Chuck Berry's "Around and Around" to the melancholic Jagger/Richards original "Congratulations," speak to the emergence of visceral versatile, and virtuosic group becoming more deeply versed in R&B acumen.
Notable for balancing youthful primal bravado with learned rhythmic pace, 12 x 5 witnesses the Stones putting an individual stamp on soul structures and harnessing their blues-rock roots to a greater extent. The band's rendition of Bobby Womack's "It's All Over Now" remains standard-bearing. Its first version of Jerry Ragovoy's "Time Is On My Side" is here, too, with organ backing. Similarly confident and distinctive, the instrumental "2120 South Michigan Avenue" pays tribute to the physical address of Chicago's Chess Records, where several tracks on the record were cut, as well as their heroes. Witness Jagger's Little Walter-like harmonica solo.
Having sold at a faster clip than the Stones' hit debut, 12 x 5 established the band's permanent foothold in contemporary music, the evidence of which resonates in this album's grooves to this very day!
