Probably because all the radio stations' other copies of "Satisfaction" were worn out. ;)

keelerphoto - That appears to be a regular, retail copy label on the disk. Does the disk label indicate it's a promo?

Digitally Remastered HOT ROCKS

Post by HNOGA » Fri Oct 29, 2004 2:03 am

I've read through your discussion and did not find anything about my Hot Rocks albums and I was hoping maybe one of you could assist me. I have been watching the ebay listings as well and one just went for $455 - a promo, see link: ... RK:MEWA:IT

My album is in brand new condition - not a scratch or a single worn area on the jacket. It has the 11018, no Shelly though, and has red (not blue) London lables and is digitally remasterd from the original master recording. Any guesses on this would be most helpful.

Hey guys, You caught my interest On Hot Rocks. I have the album with 11-18-71 inscribed as well as shelley. Its in fair-good shape I guess. Few scratches but plays really nice. Has both the original sleeves for the records too. What whould you say it would be worth? Not looking to sell just curious.

Can someone help me with this?.....I'm having the most difficult time in pin pointing this particular copy of "Hot Rocks"

It's a gate fold double album in supreme condition, plain white inner protection sleeves and has a pamphlet in it called, "211 Reasons Why The Rolling Stones Is The Greatest Rock N Roll Band" it is unlike any i can find, Richards name misspelled(no 's')-does not have "Shelly" etched has other etchings I've not seen described anywhere...
I wonder why no one mentions the misspelling of Richards....
This one seems to be completely different than any version I've seen described on the internet...none of the pictures of the many different labels I've seen match mine...HELP!

I also have copies of this album. One of them has Shelley on sides 3 and 4 but the December dates. Sides 1 and 2 have the November dates. Heh, it's NOT the one. Cool, I like the music. The other one is clearly not the one.

The one 'definitely' has shelley on side 4 with the November 18 date. I say definitely because there are so many versions with shelley here or there with this date or that. From what I understand this version is very rare. Rare as in there are maybe 2 left floating around. it's likely you do NOT have it ;) They released startlingly few in the 2 weeks they ran that version. It may even have been less time. There are numerous sources on the web dealing with the lore of this album.

This guy claims to have it, though:

Several "former members" on this old, old thread; all the same guy trying to hawk a record they really didn't have, I guess?

  • What I wonder is, do one really need this album, when you have all the original 7-inch picture sleeve singles and albums?? Of course I belong to this lucky group of collectors, I'm old enough, so I bought 'em all at the time of their release. :twisted:
    (How about to calculate, the value, all these original releases do have?) By the way, I won't sell a single record of these little gems.

I lucked out on vacation today and found a Side 4 Shelley 11-18-71 pressing today - my first time looking for one. When I slid it out of the jacket and spotted that, I nearly flipped. I plunked down my $10 and got out of there. When I got to the hotel, I discovered that the other LP was actually another side 3/4, but not with the 11-18-71 inscription on side 4. So now I'll have to look for another copy from that era, just to Frankenstein together a proper edition.
