Images of Andy Warhol and the Rolling Stones during the seventies.
At the turn of the decade the band appeared on the BBC’s highly rated review of the sixties music scene Pop Go The Sixties, performing Gimme Shelter on the show, which was broadcast live on 31 December 1969. In 1970 the band’s contracts with both Allen Klein and Decca Records ended, and amid contractual disputes with Klein, they formed their own record company, Rolling Stones Records. Sticky Fingers (UK number 1; US 1), released in March 1971, the band’s first album on their own label, featured an elaborate cover design by Andy Warhol. The album contains one of their best known hits, “Brown Sugar”, and the country-influenced “Dead Flowers”. Both were recorded at Alabama's Muscle Shoals Sound Studio during the 1969 American tour. The album continued the band’s immersion into heavily blues-influenced compositions. The album is noted for its “loose, ramshackle ambience” and marked Mick Taylor’s first full release with the band.
