Released January 1967UK No.3 Charted 22 weeks

An album without a hit single in sight that was part recorded with Dave Hassinger in Hollywood – the last to be recorded in what had been the band’s ‘hit factory’  – and Glyn Johns at the newly opened Olympic Studios in Barnes.

Some of the tracks were started in America and finished in London. Recording technology was by now allowing for greater experimentation and although every track is credited to Jagger/Richards, there are certainly very different styles of music and song writing to be heard on this album – “Yesterday’s Papers” has the distinction of being the first song to be written solely by Mick. “Connection” was played live at the London Palladium the week after the album came out and was featured in Shine a Light in 2008. Cartoons and drawings by Charlie are used on the album artwork.
