Japanese pressing of the Rolling Stones album It's Only Rock 'n Roll, signed on the front cover in blue felt tip by Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Bill Wyman, and Mick Taylor, and on the back cover in black felt tip by Charlie Watts; the back cover is also signed by frequent Stones collaborator Billy Preston, who played piano, clavinet, and organ on the album. In fine condition, with a full, neat split to spine; if so desired, separating the front and back covers would make for a superb display. The record is included. This specific Rolling Stones lineup with Mick Taylor (1969-1974) is considered by critics and fans as the most prolific and creative iteration of the group, with a body of work including Exile on Main St., Goat Heads Soup, Sticky Fingers, and It's Only Rock and Roll. Accompanied by a John Brennan Collection letter of provenance.
John Brennan recalled of the Stones, “Back when Keith, Ron and Charlie were partying hard, they’d be in the studio until dawn. We’d be waiting outside.” In 1986, during the “Dirty Work” era; on 48th St., NYC, the Stones were recording in the studio and Mick Jagger came out. “We saw him frequently so he wasn’t uptight around us. He tried but couldn’t hail a cab, so we offered him a ride home in my white IROC Camaro. I drove; he sat in the front seat.” Brennan also revealed his diehard devotion, “I once waited outside Mick’s apartment for 18 hours in 1984.” The steadfast autograph seeker “met Keith at least 150 times,” and possesses dozens of candid pictures as mementos.
