Early 1970s Japanese Rolling Stones Records promo poster
Original first printing Rolling Stones promotional poster issued by Rolling Stones Records in Japan, presumably around 1971 or 1972. Rolling Stones Records was the record label formed by the Rolling Stones members Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Mick Taylor, Charlie Watts, and Bill Wyman in 1970, after their recording contract with Decca Records expired. The label was initially headed by Marshall Chess, the son of Chess Records founder Leonard Chess. It was first distributed in the United States by Atlantic Records subsidiary Atco Records. The poster features a photo of the band relaxing at Stephen Stills home in Laurel Canyon, CA in October, 1969. The poster was for promotional purposes only, and was never made commercially available.
The poster measures 72.8 x 51.4 cm (approx. 28.6″ by 20.2″ inches) and is beautifully printed on thin, dull-coated paper stock. In excellent unfolded condition, clean and unmarked.
