This image was used on the front cover of the US release of the Rolling Stones' album December's Children (And Everybody's)
, released in December, 1965. It was their fifth studio album and Gered Mankowitz's first album cover for the band, a thrilling achievement for a young man of only 18! Confusingly, this image also appeared on the front cover of Out of Our Heads
in the UK earlier that same year. The two records had a similar combination of tracks but are considered two separate releases.
"The original negative for this image was lost years ago, probably stolen from my studio where security was lax to say the least, but it was recently returned to me, having been found in an old lock-up in West London. After careful restoration I am now able to produce these beautiful prints. One of these prints is now part of the permanent collection at the National Portrait Gallery in London." -- Gered Mankowitz
