About this copy: This copy of England’s Newest Hitmakers is a 1981 Japanese pressing of an album that was originally released in 1964.
The cover is M-, with trace corner wear. The insert is M-, as is the included postcard.
The obi is in good condition, as the top one inch is missing. We’ve repaired it to hold it in place.
The orange vinyl disc is M- and looks unplayed. There’s a bit of foxing on the labels.
A nice copy of a scarce colored vinyl Rolling Stones LP.
Background: Released in April, 1964, England’s Newest Hit Makers (titled The Rolling Stones in the UK) was the first album by the Rolling Stones.
The album reached #1 in the UK and #11 in the U.S., and is, to date, the only studio album by the Rolling Stones not to make the Top 10 in the United States.
Allmusic.com gave England’s Newest Hit Makers a 4 1/2 star review:
The British version of the Stones’ first album has a nearly identical cover to its American equivalent, issued six weeks later, but a slightly different song lineup. Among these 12 songs, absent is “Not Fade Away,” which was a hit single in England (where singles and LPs were usually kept separate), and in its place is the Stones’ cover of Bo Diddley’s “Mona (I Need You Baby)” (credited here as “I Need You Baby”), which had to wait until Rolling Stones Now!, a year later, for its U.S. release.
