From our point of view in the year 2010 its hard to imagine the year 1964. Black and white TV, no internet, the single was king of the charts, the Beatles were gods, the commies wanted to nuke us. I knew what to expect listening to this album the first time, mostly cover songs, a few originals, and i wasn't surprised or disappointed by this album. This is a great album, some of the last songs are not the greatest but they're not bad enough to drag the album down to 4 stars. It rocks, it rolls, its rythm and blues and harmonicas and guitar solos, its the year 1964 in a wierd time of innocence.
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED !!!

The very first album by the band that would by the end of the sixties be known as the "greatest rock n' roll band in the world" was issued first in the UK in April of 1964, a month later in the States. College age kids pretending to be middle aged American bluesmen shouldn't really work, right?? But we're talking about the Stones here, the greatest white blues/r&b band of all time and they were a year and a half out of the gates when they slammed down the tracks on their debut. UK and US versions are virtually identical except for two major points. "Not Fade Away", their first classic, is not on the UK release as it was a single only there. It is replaced by Bo Diddley's "I Need You Baby/Mona". Also the album was subtitled England's Newest Hitmakers, while the UK one has no title shown, just the stark Nicholas Wright band photo. "Route 66" kicks off the LP in grand fashion, a stage favorite at the time, followed by an outstanding version of Muddy Waters'"I Just Want to Make Love to You". Chicago blues fills the album with examples such as "Honest I Do" (Jimmy Reed), "I'm a King Bee" (Slim Harpo) and band original "Little by Little" (actually a slight rip of another Jimmy Reed tune). Chuck Berry's work makes an appearance with the Stones classic version of "Carol" The Jagger/Richards songwriting partnership is solely represented by a rare ballad, "Tell Me" (see the UK version for the full-length sudden stop), a beautiful song that paved the way for things to come. Closing with "Walking the Dog" was just the right touch with some of Keef's most exciting lead guitar while his partner Mr. Jones shines on slide with "King Bee". If you like classic '60's British blues rock you can't go wrong with the Stones' rootsy debut, a landmark in rock history.

The American debut of The Rolling Stones was part of the British Invasion, the wave of UK bands who hit the U.S. in the wake of the Beatles early-1964 breakthrough. Only a handful of bands would mature and survive, and the best of them were The Rolling Stones.
Still, there was no guarantee from listening to this fine album that the Stones would be around. Eric Burdon of the Animals was a better vocalist than Mick Jagger, the Yardbirds' Eric Clapton then later Jeff Beck and Jimmy Paige had the better guitar attack, and few British bands (beyond The Beatles) wrote their own songs. That means the London blues bands largely recorded blues songs to fill their albums, and how long could they keep that up?
What the Stones did have were attitude. Jagger's lewd, sneering vocals and Keith Richards' Chuck Berry-influenced guitar were the bedrock of this band from day one. A third key ingredient was Brian Jones' slide guitar, perhaps the best slide playing east of the Mississippi Delta.
The album opens with a stunning remake of Buddy Holly's Not Fade Away. The Bo Diddley beat makes this song move. It is fantastic. The remaining covers are performed fast and furious: Route 66, I Just Want To Make Love To You, Carol (great guitar), and the hilarious Walking The Dog. The Stones' versions are light years from the earthy, dark originals by Muddy Waters et al, but have an energy that remains infectious 40 years on. I'm A King Bee features the nastiest slide guitar from 1964.
Of the originals, only Tell Me is worth mentioning. This slow ballad echoes early-60s soul more than Chicago blues, and features some fine vocal work.
The remaining songs, however, fail to measure up.

This the American debut album of the group that now is known as the Greatest Rock Band in the World (which they clearly deserve, by the way), and it is indeed a great album.. It is easy to see why the Stones got so popular, as they are the total opposite of the Beatles' lighter and cleaner rock'n'roll - and I'm not saying that as a negative comment on the Beatles, I love them, I'm just stating facts.
This is a blues record, filled with fast-rocking songs like "Route 66" and "Carol", together with slower, but equally great, ones like "I'm A King Bee" and "Honest I Do". And I must say it is amazing how the Stones at such a young age almost reach the level of their idols, like Chuck Berry and Muddy Waters. Despite their youth (they were all in their early 20's when making this record) all of the songs, in all their dirtiness and honesty, sound very adult and mature. The passion they were feeling for these songs really shine through, and its wonderful when you encounter artists with such affection for their material. And the band also plays remarkably well together, like they have been together for years. Just listen to how Charlie Watts (drums) and Bill Wyman (bass) already are on their way to creating a unique rhythm section in rock'n'roll, or the magnificent guitar weaving between Keith Richards and Brian Jones. And although you can sense the youth in Mick Jagger's voice, he stills sounds very provoking and sexy. The harmonica playing, split up between Jones and Mick Jagger, also deserves an honorable mention, since it is nothing short of great.
