Pelons are extremely rare "practice pieces" for the early t-shirt designs. Before production was initiated, the image or design was tested on cotton cloth or burlap to determine the color and line accuracy of the piece. Only a few of the "tests" were preserved once the design was deemed acceptable and the t-shirt went into production.

Winterland was the Stones' third stop on their North American Tour. Working their way down the West Coast from Vancouver and Seattle, the concert was called Tumblin' Dice after one of their major songs and featured crowd-favorites Brown Sugar and You Can't Always Get What You Want. The Tour left San Francisco for a June 9 performance in Los Angeles and finished up at Madison Square Garden on July 26.
