12 Songs, 33 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

This is where the Stones became the Stones. With Brian Jones' lick-kicking "The Last Time" and Keith Richards' primal riff making "(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction," the band's instant signature, the band was finally stepping apart from its blues-soul models and creating a musical language of its own (even if "The Last Time" was an uncredited adaptation of a Staples Singers' gospel song). Those songs (as well as the sinister ballad "Play With Fire") also saw Mick Jagger's combination of bravado and ennui fully flowering as, for the first time, Jagger-Richards originals outnumber covers. Of the latter, "Mercy Mercy," Sam Cooke's "Good Times," and the Otis Redding hit "Cry to Me" provide strong complements.
