Five By Five [U.K.] (EP)
Released: Aug 1964
Label: ABKCO (US)
Featuring two somewhat forgettable Jagger/Richards compositions and three covers, Five By Five was churned out right after the success of the band's eponymous debut took over the parts of England not already claimed by The Beatles. This may be the very first instance where The Stones cash in on their universal appeal with a less than stellar product. Recorded at Chess Studios in Chicago, the EP is nowhere near the explosion of raw power their first EP was. Still, "Around and Around" rules. The Rolling Stones - Five By Five [U.K.] 2010-09-14
