"Import" 7" single version of the Stones on Ed Sullivan at the peak of their powers!
In November 1969 the Stones appeared on Ed Sullivan's influential show for the sixth and final time, sharing a bill with Ella Fitzgerald. Jagger was resplendent in a silver and black choker and a fringed cloak whilst Richards' hair was in the ascendent, complementing his see-through Dan Armstrong guitar. Sullivan announced "Gimme Shelter" as being from the band's new album Let It Bleed, to be released in the US the week after the broadcast. Some pictures of the band on the Ed Sullivan set show Wyman replaced by pianist/road manager Ian Stewart.
