This debut album by the Rolling Stones has the British track listing as opposed to the more familiar version of 'England's Newest Hitmakers' released in the U.S which substituted the sublime Mona for Not Fade Away.The reason for this is that the record company thought the fans would be more willing to buy the record if it contained an already known hit and Not Fade Away had been released as a single.The American record company issued albums with different tracks and running orders up until 1967 and Their Satanic Majesties Request. The listing is a bit of a surprise to me as this cd is on the London Label which the Stones used in the U.S but this to me is the true record with the proper U.K running order on the album. From the rollicking opener Route 66 to the rousing finale Walking the Dog this cd oozes class. The Stones were a young band determined to bring the blues to the world and here they succeed brilliantly. The Stones and The Beatles were about the only two bands of this era trying to make entire albums of potential hits where lesser artists might have a couple of good tracks and the rest fillers.There isn't a filler on this album. Full of primeval raw energy with very little or no overdubs this is one of the greatest debut albums ever released by any band. A must have.

This at long last is the UK version of the Stones' debut album on CD. The only niggle for fans is that it is only available as an import with a resultant mark up in the price. As far as I know this actual album has never been officially available on CD in the UK and the nearest to it was imported copies of the USA version titled England's Newest Hitmakers.

However the entire album is available at a much lower price from Amazon as an MP3 download.

The CD has all original twelve tracks that were on the UK Decca album in 1964 with the correct running order and timings, and also carries the original UK sleeve design. This CD issue had been around on or off since the 1980's and looks to have recently resurfaced, possibly due to public demand.
The album is stated on the cover as being in Mono and this would make sense as it was originally recorded in one track mono and no true stereo mix has ever existed.
A must for British Stones fans who rightly feel that they only want to own the original and better Decca based UK versions of their early 60's work in preference to the haphazard US collections. The purchase of the rights to all the Stones' Decca recordings by an American company in the early 70's has not been of much benefit to their UK fans.

This was my first Stones LP. When their albums got transferred onto CD format, this and its successor "Rolling Stones No 2" were overlooked in favour of their USA counterparts. Mow its available albeit on mp3 format.
This is the Stones when they were a r&b cover band. And its brilliant. No singles. No name or title on the cover, and its in magnificent mono. Unlike the Beatles, they were't pretty, and some even said they weren't musical. But they were raw. And there's definitely a hint that there was more to come.

It has the same songs as its USA counterpart with one exception. For the USA "Mona" was replaced with "Not Fade Away" which was the current single.

You know the rest.

I have always loved this album. Yes of course this is the real Stones debut album. Why it has taken so long for it to appear on CD is a mystery. The recent Decca/London era remasters have been fine on sound quality but why this and follow up, The Rolling Stones No.2, were left unreleased seems just mad.

The reason I say "Nearly Perfect" is the cover. The Japanese are usually very good at authentic re-releases so why have the London logo instead of the correct (and I have to say, iconic)Decca logo?

I have been reduced to self compiling this album and the above mentioned No. 2 on iTunes from the US albums but I think there is an occasional variation that means that my version is still not quite right. so this filling a gap.

This Japanese CD has become astronomically expensive so you just want an MP3 version and/or want it at an affordable price then the Amazon download: The Rolling Stones (UK) is also available and comes with the correct cover as is The Rolling Stones No. 2

The disc was in good condition considering that it was used, but It was good to have the album on C.D. just a pity that it was on the LONDON lable and not DECCA as per the original vynil album
