On this day in music history: May 30, 1964 - “England’s Newest Hit Makers”, the US debut album by The Rolling Stones is released. Produced by Andrew Loog Oldham it is recorded at Regent Sound Studios in London from January 3 - February 25, 1964. Recorded in just five days worth of studio time spread over a six week period, the album features mostly R&B and blues covers the band has been performing as part of their live act. The US title of the album is amended from its original eponymous title, and includes the bands’ first two American singles “Not Fade Away” (#3 UK, #48 US Pop) and “Tell Me (You’re Coming Back”) (#24 US Pop). Original US pressings of the album will also include an offer to send away for a large fold out poster of the LP’s cover photo. Over time, these have become quite rare and are sought after collector’s items among Stones fans. “England’s Newest Hit Makers” will peak at number eleven on the Billboard Top 200, and is certified Gold in the US by the RIAA.
