Emotional Rescue

file under: stones comeback

rare original rolling stones "emotional rescue" promo tee
year: 1980
tag: healthknit
material: 50/50 cotton-polyester blend
condition: excellent vintage
value: $400.00
note: Emotional Rescue was the first album release by the Stones after Keith Richards 1977 arrest for smack in Toronto which could have effectively ended the Rolling Stones career. thankfully it didn't. this rare record release promotional t-shirt was found at a local second-hand clothing store for $10. obviously the employees didn't realize what they had and assumed it was a recent reproduction. their loss...
