Product Description

Product Description

Limited Edition vinyl LP repressing of this classic Rolling Stones album, originally released in 1965. Decca.


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 --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

...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 ...

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.

By LeBrain HALL OF FAMETOP 100 REVIEWER on 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.

With the inclusion of (I Can' Get No) Satisfaction, this CD, LP, must be considered at least one outstanding recording.
There was a London\DECCA previous release in wonderful original mono. The CD 820 049-2 'Made In Hanover, West Germany' has the exact same as the U.S. 'abkco' silver CD tracks, but the original "mono" really puts all the 2002 'remasters' to shame.
At least the first 4 U.K. Rolling Stones LP albums were in mono.
It seems that U.K. DECCA finally got it right with the late 65-66
LP 'after-Math' now available again through abkco/DECCA/London.
"NOW" has many originally mono tracks recorded at 2120 South Michigan Avenue (CHESS studios), also a Nanker-Pheldge track on the Germany only LP "Around And Around", only released as an EP in the U.K., so it's good, but it's a faked-recompiled non-U.K. LP. Also, the abkco/London 12 track LP "Got Live If You Want It! is also fake. The original mono EP DFE-8620 is the genuine EP. As is the music business, "It's Only Rock 'N ' Roll!"
