Rolling Stones Photos
This one misses a golden opportunity by not including "Get Off of My Cloud" ("Just 'cause you feel so good, d'ya have to drive me out of my head?"), but that's about the only mistake it makes. In the few months since the release of Now!, the Stones' sound had grown harder; even a ballad like O.V. Wright's "That's How Strong My Love Is" attains a rumble that'll make you think a big truck is driving by your house. When Jagger drawled, "Buzz a while," in the middle of the group's debut the year before, he probably had no idea what his boys were soon to make of that command: "The Last Time," "The Under Assistant West Coast Promotion Man," "Satisfaction." --Rickey Wright

- Album does NOT sound like a DSD Remaster. (sound quality is at best, mediocre)
Have a mid-level audiophile system but while CD played, music was 'flat,' with poor dynamics, soundstage and depth. From bass to treble, instrumentation was muffled. ABKCO should be ashamed of themselves to put out such a weak product, reissue.
Note: Also, CD Jewel Case had several gouges (one quite large) on obverse.
Highlights: Hitch Hike, Play With Fire, (Can't Get No) Satisfaction, How strong My Love Is
Some representative works (that is, songs that I want to write about). . . .
"Mercy Mercy": This opens the album/CD, an Otis Redding song. Mick Jagger gives a nice, credible blues version of this piece. There is raw and primal guitar work to back his singing.
"The Last Time": This is one of the Stones' best early songs. There is a nice guitar riff to open this work. The rhythm section (Charlie Watts and Bill Wyman) lay down a good base for this song. Some lyrics:
"I've told you once
And I've told you twice.
But you never listen to my advice."
And then, here it is--"(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction": I first heard this as an underclass student at Bradley University. Even though my preference was classical music, I understood that this was something special. The fuzz tone riff by Keith Richards at the outset suggests that this is serious business. One typical line that resonated, I'm sure, with many who listened to this:
"I can't get no satisfaction. . . .
Baby, baby maybe come back next week
Cuz' you see I'm on a losing streak."
Drums, bass, and guitars work well together. This is almost as perfect a rock and roll song as you can get.
Then, there's "Play with Fire." This is a hard-edged song, with a degree of menace to it. Starts out with some nice acoustic guitar work.
"And the chauffeur drives your car,
You let everybody know.
But don't play with me
'Cuz you're playing with fire."
A classic rock and roll song, with some very interesting lyrics that are not necessarily typical of the time.
So, is this a seamlessly crafted album? No. Is this a terrific rock and roll work? Yes!
Top reviews from other countries
These were the albums, and the year, 1965, which saw The Rolling Stones really start to stand on their on two feet as a credible rock band singing their own credible rock songs. Yes, each album contained contemporary soul covers as well (as opposed to the r 'n' b covers of their 1964 albums), but they also had some seriously good Jagger/Richards original compositions, such as "Satisfaction" and "Get Off My Cloud". Even the covers now showed The Stones to be masters of their art, a band in total control. These albums would, however, be the last of their albums to include covers. "Aftermath" in 1966, would be completely made up of Jagger/Richards songs. The inclusion of a few live tracks dotted around in these albums was pretty superfluous and detracts from the quality.
The albums were recorded in mono and are best listened to either via the ABKCO 2002 remasters or as part of the excellent "Rolling Stones In Mono" box set. The sound on the latter is truly superb - speaker-pounding and floor-shaking in its pure mono, vibrant, heavy bassy, centred sound. Just listen to that throbbing bass and clear, jangling guitar on "Oh Baby (We Got A Good Thing Goin')".
Overall, however, these are albums that are very much part of a time of change for The Stones. They were their "Beatles For Sale".

The photo is Ealing Club (I think) where my sister used to ogle Brian Jones. I still have the vinyl version from 1965 but be sure and buy the definitive version CD as manufacturers tend to mess about these days (adding and removing tracks) for commercial impact.
My son (born 25 years after the album was made) loves it.
