This American version replaced Mothers Little Helper with what was at that time a recent hit - Paint It, Black, while cutting Out Of Time, Take It Or Leave It, and What To Do.
Nearly everyone knows this music and now you can enjoy it the way it was meant to be heard. For the music itself, it's hard to improve on the review done of the UK Aftermath release by Brian Christie on Aug 29, 2002.
ABCKO acquired the Stones' catalog when Allen Klein became their manager in the 70s. The resulting legal battles produced releases that the Stones opposed (they took out full page adds asking fans not to buy them), including the controversial Metamorphosis releases (which are now available on CD for the 1st time ever). But the sad fact is that the Stones lost control of their great early material. With the recently remastered SACD releases, we at last have some idea of what they really sounded like in the studio. I guess if we had them 40 years ago they would have ended up Greatest Rock And Roll Band in the Universe instead of just our tiny little World.
All the tracks for Aftermath were recorded during 2 sessions at RCA Studios in Hollywood.
Dec 3-8, 1965 at RCA Studios in Hollywood

Jonesing for some Brian Jones? Good, because he's all over this record the way ineptitude is all over the McCain-Palin ticket. He doesn't just play guitar. Read morePublished on October 8, 2008 by finulanu
Even in its truncated U.S. version with its blurry cover shot, 1966's "Aftermath," the first Stones album of all-original material, is indispensible. Read morePublished on August 7, 2008 by Steelers fan
"Aftermath," was the stones first album of all original material, and it has a vibe that's a bit different from their previous recordings. Read morePublished on March 30, 2007 by fluffy, the human being.
