On the face of it this is a re-packaged version of the Stones first UK album which was released in 1964 and titled simply The Rolling Stones - but beware because it's not.
The original UK release did not contain Not Fade Away which,in fact,came out as a UK single. However the original UK vinyl album did contain a track which is not on this CD, that being the bluesy I Need You Baby (Mona). This is a pity because Mona, as the song became known is very good and was in fact covered by Craig McLachlan in the late 80's.
This CD must presumably be based on the USA version of the album as it was common practice to release different UK/USA albums and singles etc.in those days. The Beatles suffered from similar problems until about 1967.
The UK track-listing was made available on CD in original mono by London Records only in the States in the late 80's and is now available again through Amazon as an import and can also be downloaded from Amazon MP3 site.
Whether the UK version of the album will ever see the light of day as an official UK release again remains to be seen but the CD import or MP3 download will satisfy the needs of fans for the time being.
Having said that this is an excellent debut album by any standards and the re-mastered CD mix is much better than the tinny, flat sound of the original Decca Records vinyl way back in 1964. Apparently the album was recorded in one track mono and no true stereo mix has ever been in existence.

The CD arrived this morning and I played it on the way to work. I was immediately transported back to my teenage years with a Dansette record player and the BSR UA8 autochanger clanking the old vinyl LP onto the deck and the music pouring out at full volume, much to the annoyance of my parents. And the CD sounds identical to the LP, but without the scratches that came for free eventually.
The CD is fabulous! Nobody who claims to like the Stones should be without it as it is the orignal 5 members of the Stones at their best as far as I am concerned. Every track is great blues or foot-tapping music that you will grow to love if you have not heard it before. Buy it today and transport yourself back forty years, you won't be disappointed!

The Stones first album is a superb mix of rock n'roll, blues and even soul. The stand out tracks are "Not Fade Away", "Route 66", "Carol" and "I just want to make to you," All the tracks on this record are up to scratch even the group composed numbers "Now I've got a witness" and "Little by Little," show special quality. Overall this record is a classic which will make an excellent addition to any Stones fan's music collection.

The debut album by the Stones has many things in common with the Beatles first effort 'Please, Please Me'. The most obvious of which is the sheer raw energy that both records contain. Indeed it could be argued that neither band ever captured the same adrenaline rush on any of their subsequent albums. The difference, of course, was in the image. The Stones debut contained absolutely no wording on the cover of the original UK release. It was also self-titled and showed an unsmiling group staring arrogantly at the camera as if daring the person looking at it to make a smart-arsed comment. When released in the US however, it was given a (rubbish) title and the group name plastered on the front. The tracklisting was also tampered with-'Not Fade Away' added to the beginning and the swampy, throbbing rendition of 'Mona' dropped. Understandable given the similarities between the two tracks, but for UK fans it's just not right that the rousing 'Route 66' doesn't open the album and the fourth track HAS to be 'Mona'. The album was recorded at Regent Sound in London. An incredibly primitive,tiny, studio that only had two-track machines, egg boxes on the walls for soundproofing and a speaker hung on a nail for playback. In a way,though, this crude recording set-up helped contribute to the 'live' feel of the record as overdubbing would have been kept to an absolute minimum. Taken as a whole, the album is a rush of nervous energy that the listener can't help but be swept up in. Songs speed up as the band get excited, particularly on 'Carol', taken at such breakneck speed that Jagger can hardly get the words out. It's the definitive version of the song (sorry, Chuck Berry fans!).Read more ›

Oh how this album must seem unrecognisable to those fans only familiar to the gutsy rock of the late 60s-early 70s Stones. Truth is, this is how they started. England's Newest Hitmakers perfectly encapsulates everything the Rolling Stones were about in their formative years- rhythm and blues, rebellion and acting (at least for the tabloids) the complete opposite of The Beatles

The album is basically eleven blues and RnB numbers and one early Jagger-Richards attempt (the poppy and altogether unsatisfying `Tell Me (you're coming back)'. Amongst the highlights is the opening track `Not Fade Away' (their first UK top ten single) which is a rougher and more aggressive stab at the Buddy Holly original and Chuck Berry's `Carol'. The latter being a rip-roaring homage thanks to Mr Richards electrifying guitar fills. Keith was very much the master copyist before finding his own feet over the next couple of years. The slow `Honest I Do' and `Can I Get A Witness' (covered also by Marvin Gaye) are two favourites of mine also.

The albums primitive sound and lack of self-penned originals are indeed the major reasons why so many today will undoubtedly give it a wide berth, yet for those nostalgically looking back or those appreciative of what went before and are interested in the bands evolution, then this debut release will please.
