According to a press release (titled ALL CAPS exactly as above) forwarded to me by a person, the original artwork for Let it Bleed will be put up for auction on December 15th at Bonhams in Knightsbridge, London. It's expected to fetch £30,000-40,000. That's over 46,000 bags of Funyons that cost $.99 to you and me.

Let it Bleed is the last Rolling Stones album to feature Brian Jones before he was "allegedly murdered" in his giant backyard bathtub.

I'm not sure what's exactly being auctioned at Bonhams, the back cover of Let it Bleed shows the whole tire pizza record cake all smooshed up. It's probably just a photograph of the whole thing? Maybe a negative? I'm pretty dumb, your guess is as good as mine.

Also being auctioned at Bonhams that day, a Martin 000-28 EC Eric Clapton signature model acoustic guitar, used by Clapton for recording Change the World and the Pilgrim album, estimated to fetch £20,000-30,000 (!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!), a Jimi Hendrix jacket/cape, estimated to net £3,000-5,000 (!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!). In the immortal words of Bob Geldof and Midge Ure, "DO THEY KNOW IT'S CHRISTMAS TIME?"
