Product Description


Dig how even a tossed-together cash-in by the Stones' U.S. label--the group's third American album of 1965--ends up smoking like all but their very best. They invent thrash with the opener, "She Said Yeah" (a Specialty Records obscurity penned, under a pseudonym, by Sonny Bono!) before laying down a leering "Talkin' 'Bout You," a frenetic "I'm Movin' On" and their most consistent, varied list of originals yet. Dig, too, how even "As Tears Go By" sounds like a sneer in the midst of "Get Off of My Cloud," "Gotta Get Away," "I'm Free" and the dourly off-key "Blue Turns to Grey." --Rickey Wright

2.0 out of 5 stars A hodge-podge, not really an album (2.5 stars) June 1 2005
Format:Audio CD
After the success of OUT OF OUR HEADS, the Stones (really Abkco) take a step backwards with NOVEMBER'S CHILDREN, which amounts to a cynical packaging of leftover songs and current singles.
Again, it's half-cover versions and half Jagger/Richard originals in a package that the Stones themselves dismissed. (The UK version of this album was named OUT OF OUR HEADS -- to make things more confusing.) The saving grace is the inclusion of the then-current single, Get Off My Cloud/As Tears Go By.
Otherwise, there's little else to this album. Covers such as She Said Yeah are good, but nothing fantastic, while other Stones originals like Blue Turns To Grey sound like album filler.
Wouldn't it have been more sensible to combine the US & UK versions of OUT OF OUR HEADS?

5.0 out of 5 stars A Personal Favorite June 2 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This cult favorite among Stones "butcher" albums has songs from an incredible number of sources including the UK issue of Out of Our Heads, and both UK EPs, Rolling Stones and got LIVE if you want it! The 4th track Look What You've Done appears on no other LP or CD. First performed by Marianne Faithfull in 1964, the Stones version of their own composition As Tears Go By, made it's way on to this album as well as the top-10 US singles chart in December.

4.0 out of 5 stars Everybody's B-side April 12 2002
Format:Audio CD
A collection of everybody's B-sides and definitely one A-side at the times when A-side was the bright sunny good Dr Jekyll's side and B-side was somewhat shadowy nocturnal Mr Hyde's side. The shadowy nature of this ellpee is also conveyed by the choice of the photos and low-key liner notes by Andrew Loog Oldham (rhymed, to be sure). Tired and exhausted, uninspired and knocked off in what was left of a recording session, these efforts all borrow their light from a major star called "Get Off Of My Cloud", like cold planets circling round their white hot sun.
A quicksilver rendition of "She Said Yeah" opens this little solar system of songs, the version Sir Paul McCartney surely had in mind when he said "yeah" to the song some 34 years later ("Run Devil Run"). The Stones didn't play it, they attacked it, like they attacked earlier Lennon/McCartney's "I Wanna Be Your Man".
It takes as many as four songs to balance the breathtaking pace with which the record starts. If Chuck Berry really said the Stones' "Carol" ("Get Yer Ya-Ya's Out") is best-ever version of his song, then the same could be said 'bout this classic rocker of his (Funny how the opening note resembles the notorious feedback in the Fab Four A-side "I Feel Fine").
Alexander's "You Better Move On" is an exceptional track. There's nothing one can compare it to and this might be one of the reasons the song made it on the Big Hits Volume 2 "Through the Past, Darkly", UK version.
The haunting choruses of "You Better Move On" give way to all the more haunting harmonica hovering around "Look What You've Done". The subtlety and certain elegance of this blues gives one an eerie feeling of an echo of the song itself, like if recorded long after the band had left the premises.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Early Stones Dec 11 2001
Format:Audio CD
Catching the Stones at the crossroads of pop success and being true to their blues roots. The second side is the hot side, from "Route 66' (a rocking live take) to the live "I'm Moving On" (yes, the Hank Snow song). Probably their best hodgepodge (I.E. not hits collection) until TATTOO YOU.

5.0 out of 5 stars De lo mejor de mediados de los 60 Nov. 6 2001
Format:Audio CD
Junto con "Out of our Heads", y "Now" es lo mejor de la primera parte de los stones. Buen ejemplo de ello, "She said yeah", "Get of My cloud" y "Gotta Get Away". Contiene dos versiones en vivo: "Route 66" muy buena, mejora mucho la versión original y "I'm moving on" (que buena forma de cerrar el disco!!). Obligatorio para los amantes de la mejor banda del mundo!!

2.0 out of 5 stars Blue turns to grey ... June 5 2001
Format:Audio CD
... A bunch of filler thrown around the band's then hit single Get Off Of My Cloud. Quality control was entirely absent -- Keith Richards confessed at the time that they'd have never got away with releasing such tatt in England. More than half of the album consists of ballads, and pretty dreary ballads at that. Yawn. A pox on it.
