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 Rolling Stones
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 other reason to be irritated by what London did to this album is the horribly insensitive lettering on the front which in most original UK fans opinion defaces a beautiful photograph of the band. The only lettering on the original LP was the iconic Decca logo with all the writing on the back cover.Read more ›
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 ›
