The Rolling Stones - December's Children (And Everybody's)
Unknown Reissue, London Records
This was the last record that the Stones were forced to do multiple covers, as the record is split about 50/50 between orignals and covers. Jagger and Richards were really coming into their own as songwriters as shown by the classic "Get Off My Cloud". The covers are great too though.
Are there more proficient rock bands? Sure. Are there technically better songwriters? Yes. You can be a fan of other bands, and they can be your favorite, as the Stones are not my mine, but starting with their next record, the bearkthrough "Aftermath", the Rolling Stones started their reign as the greatest Rock N' Roll band of all time. There is no other band in the history of rock music that not only were pioneers of the genre, but embody what it is to be Rock N' Roll, as well as putting out some of the most essential records of all time of ANY genre. Listen to this one if you want a snapshot of the greatest Rock n' Roll band in history just coming into their own. All hail the Rolling Stones!
As far as the pressing goes, this is a weird one. I have no idea when this particular reissue is from other than than the London label era(the 70's), and there is no country of origin anywhere. This was also originally recorded in Mono, but "electronically reprocessed" for stereo. It sounds ok. In my opinion in 1965 recording technology and techniques still had a ways to go before records sonically sounded amazing anyway. It's not without it charms though.
