The Rolling Stones – England’s Newest Hit Makers

$47.50 $30.00

The British version of the Stones’ first album has a nearly identical cover to its American equivalent, issued six weeks later, but a slightly different song lineup. Among these 12 songs, absent is “Not Fade Away,” which was a hit single in England (where singles and LPs were usually kept separate), and in its place is the Stones’ cover of Bo Diddley’s “Mona (I Need You Baby)” (credited here as “I Need You Baby”), which had to wait until Rolling Stones Now!, a year later, for its U.S. release. It’s not a big switch, a Bo Diddley-style cover of a Buddy Holly song bumping an actual Bo Diddley cover on the U.S. version.

The Rolling Stones are more than just a group – they are a way of life.  A way of life that has captured the imagination of England’s teenagers, and made them one of the most sought after groups in Beatdom.  This their first album; a raw, exciting basic approach to Rhythm and Blues which, blended with their five own explosive characters, has given them three smash hits and an E.P. that stayed in the single charts for 15 weeks.
