Reviews:

''England's Newest Hit Makers'' is the US debut album by The Rolling Stones, released by London Records on 30 May 1964.

Recorded at Regent Sound Studios in London over the course of five days in January and February 1964, ''England's Newest Hit Makers'' was produced by then-managers Andrew Loog Oldham and Eric Easton. ''England's Newest Hit Makers'' was originally released by Decca Records in the UK, under the title ''The Rolling Stones''.

The majority of the tracks reflect the band's love for authentic R&B material. Mick Jagger and Keith Richards (whose professional name until 1978 omitted the ''s'' in his surname) were very much fledging songwriters during early 1964, contributing only one original composition to the album: "Tell Me (You're Coming Back)". Two numbers are credited to "Nanker Phelge" - a pseudonym the band used for group compositions from 1963 to 1965. Phil Spector and Gene Pitney both contributed to the recording sessions, and are referred to as "Uncle Phil and Uncle Gene" in the subtitle of the Nanker Phelge instrumental "Now I've Got a Witness".

The album cover photo was taken by Nicholas Wright. Upon its release, ''England's Newest Hitmakers'' reached #11 in the US, going gold in the process. To date, this is the only of the Stones' American studio albums that failed to place in the top five on the ''Billboard'' album charts. The album was also number 1 in Australia for three weeks.

In August 2002, ''England's Newest Hitmakers'' was reissued as a new remastered CD and SACD digipak by ABKCO, while its British counterpart has remained out of print since 1987. - Wikipedia
