The Rolling Stones (Mono) (1964)

This is the first UK album by the Stones, and despite the covers heavy tracklisting, it's one of their best. At the start the band were blues and R&B evangelists, most people in Britain and America were unaware of Jimmy Reed, Bo Diddley and Muddy Waters, the Stones soon changed that by making that music popular and telling their public to check out the original versions. Route 66, I Just Wanna Make Love To You, Carol, Honest I Do, none of these songs were written by the band, but the interpretations are all their own. This is a fine rock and roll album, and one you should get your kicks on...
