ROLLING STONES The Rolling Stones No. 2 (Very rare 1965 first UK issue 12-track deep groove mono LP, on the unboxed Decca logo 'ffrr' label. This is the record to hit the shops first before any other pressing. The labels have the 'MadeIn England' print along the top rim, the composer credits in italics & the 'K'T' & 'S' codes to the right. The David Bailey cover is front laminated with flipbacks & has the original offending 'blind man' wording in Andrew Loog Oldham's albumnotes, which caused uproar at the time & was even raised in Parliament! This text was subsequently pasted over & then re-printed altogether. See 'more info' for condition details... LK4661)

TRACKLISTING AND EXTRA INFORMATION
The group's second British album actually appeared after their second US LP, mostly owing to the fact that the British rock & roll audience wasn't focused on the long-player as a medium (Singles and EPs were the driving force of the business in England then).

It uses the same David Bailey cover shot that had graced the US issued '12 X 5' album two months earlier, but only four songs (Under The Boardwalk, Suzie Q, Grown Up Wrong and Time Is On My Side) overlap on the two albums.
Rather, Rolling Stones No. 2 offered seven songs that weren't to make it out in America until four months later on 'The Rolling Stones Now!' It also includes one of the group's best blues covers, their version of Muddy Waters' I Can't Be Satisfied, which wasn't released in America until 1973 and features some killer slide playing by Brian Jones. The U.K. LP was originally released in mono only & took forever to come out on CD in this form.

The original cover design carried sleeve notes that included the text: "If you don’t have bread, see that blind man, knock him on the head, steal his wallet and low and behold you have the loot, if you put in the boot, good, another one sold!"
Not one of Mr Loog Oldham's wisest lyrical outpourings and they naturally caused uproar in January 1965, even to the extent of being debated in the UK Parliament. This was a bit too much for Decca and an alternate version of the back artwork was hastily prepared & the few they had left in the factories were overpasted with the new artwork. Most first issue sleeves continued to carry the text as they were already in the shops.

The labels are red with unboxed, open Decca logo and ffrr 'ear', with the deep grooves that were omitted from later pressings.

This is the very first label variant. The labels have the 'Made In England' print along the top rim, the composer credits in italics & the 'K'T' & 'S' codes to the right. There are spindle marks by the centre hole to show play.

The matrix numbers are machine stamped into the 'dead wax' areas. They are as follows:

Side One XARL-6619-1A
Side Two XARL-6620-1A


Condition:

The cover has the earliest flipbacks & Blind Man text. It remains immaculate for it's age, showing some light laminate creases which appear around the bottom corners but are not too excessive, the edges remain clean and the flipbacks show some crease, but are not peeled off or torn. Finally the opening edge shows about two inches of wear towards the top of the opening edge, with the rest of the opening looking very clean and straight with no bumps or fraying.

The vinyl grades a solid EX show very little cosmetic wear only in the the dead wax area, the labels show moderate spindlewear, & both sides are clean as a whistle.

A very nice, if not mint, copy of this classic album. We have tracked down the earliest, hot off the press, example to boot.
