Aftermath [U.K.] by The Rolling Stones
Released: Apr 1966
Label: ABKCO
The American version of Aftermath is a fantastic record, but its U.K. counterpart is superior. Exchanging "Paint It, Black" for three additional originals -- "Mother's Little Helper," "Take It Or Leave It" and the Motown-flavored "Out of Time" -- it stands as a more impressive document of The Stones' growth as both songwriters and in-studio sonic explorers in 1966. Both "Lady Jane" and "I Am Waiting" benefit from Brian Jones' growing interest in exotic stringed instrumentation. Meanwhile, the 11-minute "Going Home" is one of the first extended blues-rock improvisations to be committed to tape.
