Biography

A History in the Whirlwind: The Rolling Stones’ 50th Anniversary

By Anthony DeCurtis

When the nascent Rolling Stones began playing gigs around London in 1962, the notion that a rock & roll band would last five years, let alone fifty, was an absurdity. After all, what could possibly be more ephemeral than rock & roll, the latest teenage fad? Besides, other factors made ... Read more in Amazon's The Rolling Stones Store

4.0 out of 5 stars Start Me Up September 19, 2002
Format:Audio CD
With the release of the remastered super audio CDs (SACD) of the Stones ABCKO catalog (which includes all the early Decca/London material), there is now some confusion as they have released some of the early albums in both US and UK versions.
This is the later May 29, 1964 - U.S. London Records vinyl version of The Rolling Stones, often listed as England's Newest Hitmakers. The UK version has not been released on CD. Here is how you know the difference:
April 17, 1964 - U.K. Decca Records vinyl version
.....includes Mona (I Need You Baby), does not include Not Fade Away
.....Tell Me version 1 (long 4:08 version without fade out but with guitar break)
May 29, 1964 - U.S. London Records vinyl version
.....includes Not Fade Away , does not include Mona (I Need You Baby)
.....Tell Me version 1 (short 2:59 version with fade out but without guitar break)
You will find Mona (I Need You Baby) on the CD release of The Rolling Stones, Now!
The album was originally released in the UK without any title....the Band wanted people to ask for "the Rolling Stones album", but the U.S. record company execs added "England's Newest Hitmakers" to the cover. Some of the Amazon reviews of this album sound like the reviewer is hearing the Stones for the 1st time. Come On!.... this one features no less than *5* signature songs!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Stones way back when November 17, 2002
Format:Audio CD
The Rolling Stones way back when started off as a R&B, Blues band that interpreted the songs of their idols. On this album, we get to see the influences first hand, and I can only wish that they still made songs like this. There are some good songs here that only casual Stones fans wont know, but they are missing some great music. I think that the listener should give these following songs a real listen to: NOT FADE AWAY, ROUTE 66, I JUST WANT TO MAKE LOVE TO YOU, HONEST I DO, CAN I GET A WITNESS, LITTLE BY LITTLE, I'M A KING BEE. These songs are great and fun to listen to. With the bonus of being remastered, I think compared to the earlier CD, you can hear a difference. I highly recommend this CD for every STONES fan, and this isnt a bad place for some casual fans to start.

As time passed by, my sense that this and "Out of Our Heads" were their finest efforts never really left me. Not to say that enormous chunks of wonderful stuff didn't follow, of course, unlike many bands who peaked on their early releases and never challenged again. I just loved the raw passion in the way they covered material like "Not Fade Away" "Hitch Hike" and "Walking the Dog," and made it their own. To me, these well chosen covers were much more appealing than some of the later "middle of the LP" songs from their own writing. And, as for "Tell Me," it just doesn't get much better than that!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Savage Young Stones October 13, 2004
Format:Audio CD
This was the Rolling Stones first album, and it was an excellent debut. Having not yet developed as songwriters, nine of the twelve songs here are covers of American rock, R&B, and blues songs. The album gets off to a great start, with a cover of Buddy Holly's "Not Fade Away", which was the Stones first UK Top 10 hit. Then the band goes through several other great covers, which they probably had played many times at their live appearances. As for the original material... "Now I've Got a Witness" is an enjoyable instrumental jam, with the title obviously being a play on "Can I Get a Witness", the Marvin Gaye song that they cover here. "Little By Little" is a fun bluesy number, which Phil Spector shared credit for writing with "Nanker Phelge". The real gem of the original songs is "Tell Me", which is a tender ballad that probably caught a lot of people by surprise at the time. "Tell Me" went on to become the Stones first US Top 30 hit (it was not released as a single in the UK). A great debut by one of the greatest bands of all times, and highly recommended. Oh, I should mention that despite this CD being labeled as "stereo", it is actually in mono.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the all time greats! October 13, 2002
Format:Audio CD
Yeah, yeah, we all know about the Stone's history...we've all read the same books and reviews. This is the band that made me force my mother to buy me a [money] electric guitar! After learning how to play guitar with this record more than 30 years ago (I still use the same 3 chords), I can FINALLY HEAR THE DISTORTED TUBE AMPLIFIERS ON ROUTE 66. This re-mastered version brings to life the concept of "live in the studio". There wasn't much dubbing on this LP. I first purchased Ya ya's and Let It Bleed when the re-masters were released. They sound better than the first (1986) CD releases. But the difference is PROFOUND on the early recordings. Listen to Keith's already dirty guitar work on "Little by Little", his amplifier was LOUD! You can hear Jagger's breathing into mike and the wailing backing vocals on "Tell Me" much louder and clearer than on my prized mono UK vinyl original! True, they couldn't sing very well, God love 'em, but neither could I! Yeah man...the Beatles were a cool band, but who could figure out how to play "Sgt. Pepper" on a Kay guitar? I'll stick w/ Mick 'n Keef...a real working man's band they were!
