England's Newest Hit Makers is the US debut album by The Rolling Stones, released by London Records on 30 May 1964. The album cover photo was taken by Nicholas Wright. Upon its release, England's Newest Hitmakers reached #11 in the US, going gold in the process. To date, this is the only of the Stones' American studio albums that failed to place in the top five on the Billboard album charts. The album was also number 1 in Australia for three weeks. In August 2002, England's Newest Hitmakers was reissued as a new remastered CD and SACD digipak by ABKCO, while its British counterpart The Rolling Stones also from 1964 with slightly different tracklist, has remained out of print since 1987.

The Rolling Stones is the debut album by The Rolling Stones, released by Decca Records in the United Kingdom on 16 April 1964. Recorded at Regent Sound Studios in London over the course of five days in January and February 1964, The Rolling Stones was produced by then-managers Andrew Loog Oldham and Eric Easton. The Rolling Stones was originally released by Decca Records in the UK, while the US England's Newest Hit Makers appeared on the London Records label, with the track "Not Fade Away" (the a-side of the band's third UK single) replacing "Mona (I Need You Baby)". The majority of the tracks reflect the band's love for authentic R&B material. Mick Jagger and Keith Richards (whose professional name until 1978 omitted the s in his surname) were very much fledging songwriters during early 1964, contributing only one original composition to the album: "Tell Me (You're Coming Back)". Two numbers are credited to "Nanker Phelge" - a pseudonym the band used for group compositions from 1963 to 1965. Phil Spector and Gene Pitney both contributed to the recording sessions, and are referred to as "Uncle Phil and Uncle Gene" in the subtitle of the Nanker Phelge instrumental "Now I've Got a Witness".

The Rolling Stones - 1964 - The Rolling Stones EP

The Rolling Stones is the debut EP released by The Rolling Stones in January 1964. It was released both to capitalise on their first Top 20 hit "I Wanna Be Your Man" and to test the commercial appeal of the band before their UK label Decca Records would commit to letting them record an album. The Rolling Stones includes four songs recorded at two separate sessions in August and November 1963. The Rolling Stones features R&B covers of some of the band's favorite artists, and some recent American hits. Eric Easton is officially listed as the EP's producer. Andrew Loog Oldham produced the opening track "Bye Bye Johnny". Despite the rawness of the production, the EP reached #1 in the UK EP charts. "Bye Bye Johnny" and "Money" would not see official US release until 1972's retrospective More Hot Rocks (Big Hits & Fazed Cookies); "You Better Move On" was featured on 1965's December's Children (And Everybody's); and "Poison Ivy" was issued in 2002 on the remastered version of More Hot Rocks.

01 - Bye Bye Johnny
02 - Money
03 - You Better Move On
04 - Poison Ivy


The Rolling Stones - 1964 - Five By Five EP

Five by Five is the second EP by The Rolling Stones and was released in 1964. Captured during a prolific spurt of recording activity at Chess Studios in Chicago that June, Five By Five was released that August in the UK shortly after their debut album, The Rolling Stones, had appeared. The title of Five by Five is a play on words—five tracks recorded by the five members of the band. Because Mick Jagger and Keith Richards were still honing their songwriting skills, only "Empty Heart" and "2120 South Michigan Avenue" were credited to "Nanker Phelge", a pseudonym for band-written compositions. The rest of the EP is composed of R&B covers from some of their favorite artists. Andrew Loog Oldham produced Five by Five and even contributed liner notes (a tradition begun here) where he lists the band's achievements thus far (and stretches the truth by claiming The Rolling Stones' debut album had spent 30 weeks at #1 when it, in fact, was at the top for 12).

01 - If You Need Me
02 - Empty Heart
03 - 2120 South Michigan Avenue
04 - Confessin' The Blues
05 - Around And Around

04 - Mona


The Rolling Stones - 1965 - Got LIVE If You Want It (EP)

Got Live If You Want It! is the final official EP by The Rolling Stones and was released in 1965. The band's first live recording to be released, it was captured during selected dates at Liverpool and Manchester during their British tour in March that year. Renowned for its raw-sounding quality, got LIVE if you want it! has endured as a live artifact, more for its historical than musical appeal. Reportedly engineer Glyn Johns had hung microphones over the balcony for the recording; however, this is called into question as "I'm Alright" on the Got Live If You Want It! LP (recorded and released a year later) contains the same backing track but with different vocals. This would have been impossible if the recordings were made as described. Although it was never released in the United States, three of its songs were used to fill up the American albums Out of Our Heads ("I'm Alright") and December's Children (And Everybody's) ("Route 66" and "I'm Moving On") later in 1965. Unavailable for decades, got LIVE if you want it! was reissued on Compact Disc in 2004 on the Singles 1963–1965 box set through ABKCO Records. The title is a pun on the blues song "I Got Love If You Want It" by Slim Harpo.

Love was an American rock group from Los Angeles of the late 1960s and early 1970s. They were led by singer, songwriter and guitarist Arthur Lee and the group's second songwriter, guitarist Bryan MacLean. One of the first racially diverse American pop bands, their music reflected different influences, combining elements of rock and roll, garage rock, folk and psychedelia. Arthur Lee - lead vocals, percussion, harmonica, drums, John Echols - lead guitar, - Bryan Maclean - rhythm guitar, lead vocals, Ken Forssi - bass and Alban "Snoopy" Pfisterer - drums. Love is the eponymous debut by Love. Twelve of the album's fourteen tracks were recorded at Sunset Sound Recorders in Hollywood on January 24-27, 1966. The remaining two tracks ("A Message To Pretty" and "My Flash On You") come from another, undocumented session. One of the first rock albums issued on then-folk giant Elektra Records, the album was anchored by the group's radical reworking of the Burt Bacharach-Hal David song "My Little Red Book" which had guitar riffs that gave Syd Barrett some inspiration to write the Pink Floyd song "Interstellar Overdrive" which is on Pink Floyd's album The Piper At The Gates Of Dawn, the anti-drug anthem "Signed D.C." (allegedly a reference to one-time Love drummer Don Conka), and the poignant "A Message to Pretty". The stark instrumental "Emotions" is used uncredited in Haskell Wexler's 1969 film Medium Cool as a recurring theme. "My Little Red Book" was featured over the final credits of the movie High Fidelity in 2000, and the Beverly Hills 90210 episode "Alone at the Top" in 1995.

Gryphon were a British progressive rock band of the 1970s, best known for their unusual Medieval sound and instrumentation. Multi-instrumentalist Richard Harvey and his fellow Royal College of Music graduate Brian Gulland, a woodwind player, began the group as an all-acoustic ensemble that mixed traditional English folk music with medieval and Renaissance influences. Shortly after this, the duo was joined by guitarist Graeme Taylor and drummer/percussionist Dave Oberlé. After their self-titled debut, they expanded their sound to include electric guitars and keyboards as well as wind instruments, such as bassoons and krumhorns, not previously used in rock music. Gryphon's music often sounded as much like rural English folk or renaissance chansons as it did rock, at least on their early recordings. After their third album (Red Queen to Gryphon Three) and the subsequent tour as a supporting act for Yes, their instrumentation became more conventional and the use of non-standard instruments was reduced. Fans and critics generally regard Midnight Mushrumps and the all-instrumental Red Queen to Gryphon Three as their finest albums.

Out Here is the fifth album by Love, released in December 1969 on Blue Thumb Records in the United States, and Harvest in the United Kingdom. With the classic line-up of Love a memory, the group metamorphosized into a more experimental and free-flowing group, bearing little resemblance to its past except for the presence of leader Arthur Lee. Recording three LPs worth of material with his new group, Lee gave one to Elektra Records in order to fulfill the contract that had been in place for nearly four years. Four Sail, the result of Elektra's cherry-picking, was released in August 1969. Arranging the two remaining LPs into a double album, Lee signed a new contract with the independent Blue Thumb Records(*) and oversaw the release of the seventeen-track Out Here in December 1969, a mere matter of months after Elektra released Four Sail. Featuring Lee and company tackling funk, rock, ska and soul with ease, it proved that while Love may have been past their apex, that they were still capable of producing entertaining and thought-provoking songs. Arthur Lee - rhythm guitar, piano, organ, lead vocals, producer, Jay Donnellan - lead guitar, Frank Fayad - bass, George Suranovich - drums, Jim Hobson - organ, piano (01,13), Paul Martin - lead guitar (05), Gary Rowles - lead guitar (10) and Drachen Theaker - drums (03).

A progressive hard rock outfit from Newcastle, most notable for including Bob Sargeant, who later played in several other groups, including The Mick Abrahams Band and Andy Roberts' Everyone. The album is reputedly very powerful and enjoyable. It's also rare and elusive, but not as rare and sought-after as the 45 they recorded five years earlier for Columbia. At that time they were a mod band. They've reformed several times and still gig today around Tyneside, but there's been no other recorded output. Charlie Harcourt was later in Jackson Heights and Lindisfarne. Bob Sargeant later went on to production work. Charlie Harcourt - Guitar, Bob Sargeant - Keyboards, Vocals, Dave Sproat - Bass and John Woods - Drums.

Jeronimo was founded in 1969 in Germany and in '69/'70 they had their first two hits "He Ya" and "Na Na Hey Hey". With these two chartbreakers, Jeronimo climbed to the number 1 position in almost all European countries. In 1970 Jeronimo and "Steppenwolf" toured successfully through Germany and in the same year Jeronimo partook in the legendary "Progressive Pop Festival" in Cologne. Following that, Jeronimo shared the headlines with such groups as "Deep Purple" and "Golden Earring" at various European open-air festivals. In 1970, Jeronimo, together with Creedence Clearwater, presented the album "Spirit Orgaszmus", which was a success throughout all of Europe. After 30 years and millions of records sold worldwide, Jeronimo is still cult. In 1999/2000, their hits "Na Na Hey Hey" and "He Ya" were re-released on numerous hit-compilations. The CD's "Cosmic Blues", "Time Ride" and "Best of" have been available in record stores since 1991. Gunnar Schäfer: bass, vocals, Ringo Funk: drums, vocals, Rainer Marz: guitars, vocals and Walter Ortel: keyboards, vocals.

False Start is the sixth album by Love, released in December 1970. The second and final Love album for Blue Thumb Records saw bandleader Arthur Lee heavily influenced by his friend, Jimi Hendrix, even going so far as to coax Hendrix into appearing on the opening track of the album, "The Everlasting First", one of several tracks that Hendrix recorded with Love at a March 1970 session. "Stand Out", a song from the band's previous album Out Here, was again included here in a live rendition. Replacing Jay Donnellan with Gary Rowles and adding second rhythm guitarist Nooney Rickett after the session with Hendrix brought no great change to the sound of the group. There are shades of blues, funk, country and soul all based in rock and roll.

01 - The Everlasting First
02 - Flying
03 - Gimi A Little Break
04 - Stand Out
05 - Keep On Shining
06 - Anytime
07 - Slick Dick
08 - Love Is Coming
09 - Feel Daddy Feel Good
10 - Ride That Vibration
