Its hard to overestimate the importance of the Rolling Stones in rock & roll history. The group, which formed in London in 1962, distilled so much of the music that had come before it and has exerted a decisive influence on so much that has come after. Only a handful of musicians in any genre achieve that stature, and the Stones stand proudly among them.

Its difficult for American listeners to remember this, but like the recordings of the Beatles and nearly all other British groups of the ’60s, the Rolling Stones’ first several albums did not make it across the Atlantic in one piece.
The track lineup is shuffled and expanded to create a much different mood. “Paint It Black” is gone, replaced as the opening track by the snotty social commentary of “Mothers Little Helper,” which–when followed by “Stupid Girl,” “Lady Jane,” “Under My Thumb,” and “Dontcha Bother Me”–is like a pentathlon of punky misogyny capped by the grinding blues jam “Goin’ Home.” Side Two is more emotionally varied but just as musically far-reaching, adding the poppy “Take It Or Leave It” and “What To Do” to an already strong set of tunes centered on the stunning full-length version of “Out of Time” that for some reason had never been released in the United States before.


5.0 out of 5 stars
The Rolling Stones Aftermath album ushered in the halcyon days of the band. Gone were the blues and soul covers replaced by all Jagger/Richards originals. The US version of the album contained “Paint It Black” replaced on the UK issue by another hit “Mothers Little Helper” but it omitted three other tracks “Out Of Time”, “Take It Or Leave It” and “What To Do” which appeared on the UK version. It is interesting to hear the song selections as they were originally intended. The set contained “Stupid Girl” (one of my favorite underrated Stones songs) and “Under My Thumb” which led to Stones being attacked in the press for taking an anti-women stance. The set also contains the rocking “Flight 505” and “Its Not Easy”. These are balanced by the haunting “I Am Waiting”. The set is also known for containing the longish “Going Home” (perhaps too long). In addition it contains another hit “Lady Jane” although not one of my favorites. The three added songs are all good especially “Out Of Time” with its sing along hook. This is the album that gave the Stones their reputations as rock and rolls bad boys and began their reign as the “greatest rock and roll band in the world”.


5.0 out of 5 stars AFTERMATH AS IT WAS ORIGINALLY INTENDED
On April 15, 1966, Decca Records in England issued The Rolling Stones’ fourth UK album – AFTERMATH. Featuring 14 tracks – for the first time all composed by Mick Jagger & Keith Richard, it was a # 1 smash and showed that The Stones were up to the challenge of The Beatles and RUBBER SOUL. What ultimately made it out in America that June was a very different version of this OFFICIAL and AUTHORITATIVE album. “Paint It Black” – just a single in the UK, was shoved on in the place of “Mothers Little Helper” and then the US album was whittled down to a mere 11 tracks. DO NOT buy the US version – the music is great, of course, but it is not how The Rolling Stones and producer Andrew Loog Oldham intended it to be. THIS, is the real article.
