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.

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 !!!

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.

First, a response to a very negative reviewer who said this album made his ears hurt: It's called Rock & Roll, Junior!!!! It's supposed to sound raw and impassioned. Were you expecting something in the vein of Phil Collins or Seals & Crofts? Yes, the Beatles were definitely the most innovative, prolific, and musically brilliant rock band to ever come from the United Kingdom, I'm certainly not debating that. But as to which group ROCKED harder, longer, and with the most hip-swinging, soul-swaggering pathos, it's The Stones, hands down!!! The Stones were NOT a duplicate of the Beatles, they are a total original. I'd rather hear the Stones in '62 than the Beatles in the same year, when they were mostly doing bubblegum ditties and merseybeat ballads. If it were the Beatles of "Revolver" or "Magical Mystery Tour", maybe it'd be a (slightly) harder decision. This isn't to say that I don't love the Beatles, but they adapted to a rock style much later than the Stones, whose humble working-class upbringings in the dreary industrial sector of England gave them the hard-bitten cynicism and youthful angst to make hard-rock sentiments come as second-nature. Having said that, I can not even begin to extoll this deliciously furious, infectiously catchy album enough. This first album chronicles their love affair with 50's and 60's soul and R&B, and they pull it off in spades. Even the Beatles could never do the music of early bluesmen and black rockers like Chuck Berry this much justice. The Stones take music that was already brilliant, and make it even BETTER! Could you ask for a more rollicking interpretation of "Can I Get a Witness?", or "Walkin' the Dog"?Read more ›
