The cover photograph is identical to that of the British release of Out of Our Heads and was taken by Gered Mankowitz. Andrew Loog Oldham coined the album’s title.
Half the twelve tracks were written by Jagger/Richards and included is the fifth British No.1 “Get Off My Cloud”. It also features “As Tears Go By”, the ninth US single, which made number 6 in the USA. It became the b-side of “19th Nervous Breakdown” in Britain. “As Tears Go By” was arranged by Mike Leander and the only other band member to play on the song is Keith. The recording dates spanned over two years, with “You Better Move On” dating from August 1963, as well as two live tracks from the March 1965 UK tour – a cover of Bobby Troup’s “Route 66” and Hank Snow’s “I’m Moving On” that both appeared on the Got Live If You Want It EP.
