I'll go out on a limb and propose that the Golden Age of the Stones did not start with 1968's BEGGARS BANQUET, but with 1966's AFTERMATH (UK edition). Apart from the regrettable "Pepper" rip-off, SATANIC MAJESTIES, the Stones recorded an amazing run of music from 1966 through EXILE in 1972.
AFTERMATH is the first album to feature entirely original songs. No blues or soul covers, but all Jagger-Richards compositions. In other words, the Stones find their voice -- a voice ringing with cynicism, tenderness, anger, frustration and yes, misogyny, but a voice that is uniquely their own.
AFTERMATH is teeming with great songs, starting with Mother's Little Helper, which broke taboos in the mid-60s by talking about over-the-counter drug addiction among American housewives. Brian Jones puts the sitar to sinister effect. Under My Thumb remains one of the Stones' best songs, though its anti-women lyrics continue to rankle many. Out Of Time is one of the bands most haunting songs. Like Under My Thumb, Out of Time uses a new instrument, the marimba, to maximum effect. I Am Waiting and Lady Jane are two the Stones' most gentle yet bittersweet tunes, highlighted by thoughtful lyrics. Overall, Jagger and Richards' songwriting shines.
Late 1965 and early 1966 was a fertile period for the Rolling Stones, who were The Beatles closest rivals. Consider that 19th Nervous Breakdown and Paint It Black (which kicks off the US version of AFTERMATH) were recorded at this time. Had these great singles and their B-sides replaced weaker songs (What To Do, the 11-minute Goin' Home), then AFTERMATH may have attained the mythic status that BEGGARS enjoyed. (Hence, my 4.5-star reating instead of a full five.)
Ignore the bastardized U.S. version and pick up this far superior version of AFTERMATH.

Don't get me wrong, the music on this CD is superb (hence the 5 star rating) but when The Rolling Stones and Andrew Loog
Oldham (producer) made these recordings from December 1965-March 1966 and sequenced it for release, THIS is not how they envisioned it. Their authorized version was issued in England on April 15, 1966 with "Paint It, Black" as their current single (issued May 13th) SEPERATE from the album (common UK practice at the time). In North America, it was shoehorned onto AFTERMATH and in its place, "Mother's Little Helper" was knocked off and put onto the loose ends US-compiled FLOWERS album in mid-1967. In addition, "Out Of Time", "Take It Or Leave It" & "What To Do" were also taken off, reducing what was a 14-song album to a mere 11. Buy the UK version. It's what the band intended, and besides, you can hear "Paint It, Black" on FORTY LICKS, HOT ROCKS, THROUGH THE PAST, DARKLY & THE SINGLES COLLECTION. And chances are that you'd already have one of those above mentioned hits collections if you're shopping for their proper studio albums. Hope this helps. :-)

At last, the 14 song UK version of The Rolling Stones Aftermath. This is one of my favorite Rolling Stones albums. It was a landmark album for the band as it was the first Rolling Stones album to consist of all original Jagger/Richards material. The days of doing cover versions of other artist's songs were slowing down as the band was beginning to develop their own style and sound. With original hits over the last 15 months such as "Heart Of Stone," "The Last Time," "(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction," and "Get Off Of My Cloud," Mick Jagger and Keith Richards were developing into a very strong songwriting team. Besides Mick and Keith coming into their own as songwriters, Brian Jones was beginning to show his versatility as a musician as he played several differernt instruments: Indian Sitar on "Mothers Little Helper," marimbas (African xylophone) on "Under My Thumb," "Out Of Time," and mountain dulcimer on "Lady Jane," "I Am Waiting," as well as harmonica "High And Dry," "Goin' Home," and guitar and keyboards. The album also contains the 11-minute blues jam "Goin' Home". The album was immediately praised as one of their best albums and has remained a fan favorite from the Brian Jones era. The album has some great pop tunes on it. Don't just judge the Rolling Stones by their radio hits, some of their studio albums have a lot of hidden gems, and this album is one of them. The sound has been greatly improved for SACD as part of ABKCO Records "Rolling Stones Remastered Series". I highly recommend this album.
HISTORICAL REFERENCE
The album peaked at #1 in the UK. The Aftermath sessions also produced the hit singles "19th Nervous Breakdown," and "Paint It Black" in the UK.

This is the July 2, 1966 American release, not the original April 15, 1966 UK release. Most Stones fans consider this to be a vastly inferior album due to meddling by the record execs. At this time it was common for the execs to make decisions on what they thought would sell to the "American" market, which usually translated into holding back releases in order to create new packages to increase sales before the band faded into obscurity.
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
.....Doncha Bother Me (originally titled Don't You Follow Me for the unreleased album Could You Walk On The Water)
