12x5 is the second American release for the legendary The Rolling Stones. The group go through the motions with some catchy covers and some pretty decent hooks. The album is fairly up beat and actually sounds good for its age.

I do however have a problem with the track list. I have a nice vinyl copy of The Rolling Stones No. 2 which in my opinion has a vastly superior track list. I do enjoy 12x5 but it does not have the same flow and momentum build up that No.2 does.

I would definitely recommend checking this out for rock n roll enthusiasts and fans of The Rolling Stones. But I feel that this is not the definitive album when you compare the second album that was released in the UK.

The clarity and musicality of the music on this CD is a revelation.
Have the original worn vinyl so can re-read the old slieve notes whilst listening to the digital version.
Great music.

If you are a fan of the stones or of music from this period then you will enjoy not only this but the rest of this series of re-issues.
The quality that abcko have achieved almost puts you right there in the studio 40 years ago when all of these tracks were first recorded.
More please!!

Well they're here at last! The much anticipated ABCKO re-issues of those classic Stones albums. They've been subject to much conjecture over the last two years when the project to re-present the Stones 60.s back catalogue in new and better sound and packaging was first mooted.
...And now the waiting is over and having listened to eight of these CDs and comparing them with the previous "gold standard" in Stones CDs - the Mobile Fidelity Sound European releases of the late 80's early 90's, I can definitely assure Stones fans and casual buyers alike that these new re-masters are indeed the business.
And even if you are lucky enough to own all the Mobile Fidelity mastered releases, you are still going to need these new guys on the block.
Reasons? Well let's start with the packaging; OK so the "Certificate of Authenticity" is a tad tragic and just a bit irritating, but you can always extract it from the case and place it with due solemnity in the drawer where it can happily reside with the rest of your Stones artifacts, BUT and it is a big but, everything else has been presented in a way to make you feel as if you're nearer to having the original LP (you know those strange old vinyl thingies) cover in your hands then ever was the case with previous CD releases. The digipacks I know are not to everyone's liking, but the quality of the inserts and the printed quality of the covers are infinitely superior to ANY previous CD incarnations.
The sound is also a revelation and this from someone who has only been able to listen to the CD layer, but whether in mono or stereo this is an optimum listening experience and none more so than "12 X 5".

The Stones second U.S. album, 12x5, was filled with some great covers and some early original material. Besides being one of their best early albums, the sound has been improved greatly. The album now contains STEREO versions of "Around And Around," "Confessin' The Blues," "Empty Heart," "It's All Over Now," "2120 South Michigan Avenue," and "If You Need Me," which have never been heard, let alone released, in stereo before. This version is superior to the old ABKCO version. This is definitely one album worth buying in the current SACD collection. You will not be disappointed in the upgraded sound. Highly recommended.

By R. F. Stevens HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on 3 Jun. 2009

I bought the Decca vinyl in Africa forty-four years ago, and the Decca London CD twenty-some years ago. Wonderful. I'm listening again as I write. This remaster is almost identical apart from the longer time for 2120 SMA, but I'm still almost tempted to buy my third copy of this outstanding work... The CDs sound so much better than the downloads.

This second (US) album should not be confused with the third album, 'Rolling Stones II' as released in UK, and which was chopped up in the US as 'Rolling Stones Now'.

It fits in well between the UK first album 'The Rolling Stones' and UK third album 'Rolling Stones II', then followed with UK 'Aftermath' and UK 'Big Hits - High Tide and Green Grass' and UK 'Big Hits II - Through the Past Darkly' for not too much duplication and most of the classic great tracks. While I still have some of the others I never listen to them, so no point in a mention.
After BHII I always felt they became too self indulgent and repetitive and some years ago I sold my mint copies of 'Exile on Main Street' and 'Steel Wheels'.

To sort out the very real confusion about which tracks should be on which album, UK or US, see the excellent discography in the back of the Stones joint 2003 autobiography "According to The Rolling Stones" (which carefully manages - almost but not quite - to avoid any mention of Bill Wyman.)
