thumbnail link to original Decca poster Jumpin' Jack Flash The Rolling Stones

THE ROLLING STONES - JUMPIN' JACK FLASH, 1968

Original Decca promo poster, 24.5" x 17 3/4".

The single that decisively announced that the band's dalliance with the psychedelia of Their Satanic Majesties Request was over. Musically it was a restatement of core values; lyrically it reflected the traumas of the previous year's drug busts; most importantly it was the opening track to the band's greatest era.

SOLD - please inquire if you'd like us to source this for you.

This is one of the originals that survived the Boss's displeasure, one of the all-time great rock posters.
