Product Description


This one misses a golden opportunity by not including "Get Off of My Cloud" ("Just 'cause you feel so good, d'ya have to drive me out of my head?"), but that's about the only mistake it makes. In the few months since the release of Now!, the Stones' sound had grown harder; even a ballad like O.V. Wright's "That's How Strong My Love Is" attains a rumble that'll make you think a big truck is driving by your house. When Jagger drawled, "Buzz a while," in the middle of the group's debut the year before, he probably had no idea what his boys were soon to make of that command: "The Last Time," "The Under Assistant West Coast Promotion Man," "Satisfaction." --Rickey Wright

5.0 out of 5 stars More Hot Rocks from Our Heads . . . Dec 29 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
...boy, what a great stones album for those only experienced with HOT ROCKS/ROLLED GOLD collections and such, as well as those fans already enlightened enough to be turned on to the early Stones, as they ought to be ...
... with the well-known hits SATISFACTION, THE LAST TIME, and PLAY WITH FIRE, one needn't feel too distant from this CD ... and the sound IS better, overall, than the previous 80s issue, which i owned and listened to many times ...
... the UK edition/version song list/sequencing may be prefferable for some listeners ... just make sure you know which CD with which 'song list' you're ordering!
MERCY MERCY and HITCHHIKE are great openers for this album ... shows newcomers the Stones can rock, 60s style, just as they could on their bigger 'hits' ... PROMOTION MAN is hilarious, ranks with 'stupid girl'... I'M ALRIGHT is one of my personal all-time favorite 'throwaways,' and is actually better on this disc than the version on 'got live if you want it'(but see my recent review for that disc)...
...the ten-minute TAMI Show version of I'M ALRIGHT is available elsewhere, for you more advanced Stones connoisseurs ...
THATS HOW STRONG MY LOVE IS and CRY TO ME may take getting used to for some, but are worth it for their overall spirit ... and SPIDER AND THE FLY is always great ... the rest of the album is also great ...
... but see my other recent Amazon.com reviews for LONDON YEARS, HOT ROCKS, and FLOWERS for more on digipak, sound quality, stereo vs. mono, lyrics and liner notes issues ...

5.0 out of 5 stars My (Current) Favourite Stones CD May 3 2011
Format:Audio CD
I have recently begun the odyssey of discovering all the Stones studio albums in order. A monumental task. This one is my current favourite. I'm not sure I can explain why, but Out Of Our Heads (I have always loved the title) just jumped out at me, a monolithic slab of blues filtered through rock filtered back through blues again, distorted and heavy.

I never need to hear "Satisfaction" again, but "Hitch Hike", "Play With Fire" and so on...I will never get tired of hearing these songs.

The album is proof of the total being greater than the sum of its parts. Taken alone, the songs do not have the same impact. Taken as an album (which is the only way to listen to rock and roll!) they add up to something special. The rock was getting harder, the blues were getting dirtier, and the band had found their identity.

Great album. 5 stars.

4.0 out of 5 stars Best of the early Stones June 1 2005
Format:Audio CD
Though it's a formulaic package of half cover versions/half originals typical of the era, OUT OF OUR HEADS stands as the best of the early Stones albums from the 1964-5 period. The reason: the Stones start to find their voice, signalled by the legendary song, Satisfaction, which broke them in the U.S. and worldwide.
Perhaps spurred by the phenomenal success of Satisfaction, the Stones sound confident on almost every track of this album starting with the cover version of Mercy Mercy. When I first heard this years ago on the old mono vinyl the Stones sounded like a punk band -- Jagger's aggressive vocals and above all the fuzz-guitars which are mixed to the forefront and leap out of the speakers. Who ever sounded like this?
Though the Otis Redding and Sam Cooke originals are better, That's How Strong My Love Is and Good Times are fine covers by the Stones. Same goes for the anguished delivery of Cry To Me. Hitch Hike a decent version of the Marvin Gaye tune (the opening riff was later copped by the Velvet Underground on their first album).
Jagger and Richards hit their stride with the above-mentioned Satisfaction, but also The Last Time, Play With Fire and the tongue-in-cheek Spider and The Fly.
The only weaknesses are Under Assistant West Coast Promo Man, which is really a rip-off of Fanny Mae (an outtake from this album) and the disposable One More Try.
Note that this remaster doesn't sound any different from the original issue of the 80s, and is light years different from the later UK issue, which featured a weaker song list.
OUT OF OUR HEADS is no masterpiece, but for sheer pleasure this album won't disappoint.

Format:Audio CD
With the release of the remastered super audio CDs (SACD) of the Stones ABCKO catalog (which includes all the early Decca/London material), there is now mass confusion about the Out Of Our Heads releases. Allow me to clarify for you:
There are 3 Out Of Our Heads Releases (all were released with lower case titles):
July 30, 1965 - U.S. London Records vinyl out of our heads
(the heads cover with Keith at center)
September 24, 1965 - U.K. Decca Records vinyl out of our heads
(the hallway cover with Brain at front)
December 3, 1965 - U.S. London Records vinyl december's children (and everybody's)
(the hallway cover with Brain at front)
This new remastered SACD is the July 30, 1965 - U.S. London Records vinyl out of our heads release. This version of included include the following tracks that were not to be on the U.K. release: The Last Time, I'm All Right, Satisfaction, Play With Fire, Spider And The Fly, and One More Try. The U.K. version added She Said Yeah, Talkin' Bout You, Oh Baby, Heart Of Stone, and I'm Free.
Note: 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 these remastered SACD releases, we at last have some idea of what they really sounded like in the studio. I guess if we had these 40 years ago they would have ended up Greatest Rock And Roll Band in the Universe instead of just our tiny little World.

2.0 out of 5 stars Motley
An album that seems a mixture of styles and tastes. It preceeds the era when the lads truly found their own voice, abandoned their blues and rocked into immortality.
