In 1965, the Stones finally proved themselves capable of writing classic rock singles that mined their R&B/blues roots, but updated them into a more guitar-based, thoroughly contemporary context…

Out of Our Heads is The Rolling Stones' third British album and their fourth in the United States. It was released in 1965 through London Records in the US on 30 July 1965, and Decca Records in the UK on 24 September 1965 (in both mono—catalogue number LL3429; and in stereo—PS429), with significant track listing differences between territories.
All tracks are in MONO including Heart Of Stone. It should be noted here at this point that the original mono recordings were "electronicaly re-processed" into a bass/treble channel separation when stereo recordings had become the standard in the late 1960's recording industry. This is NOT the case here and probably fundamentally responsible for the overall enhanced sound presentation. Originally recorded mono master tracks are now heard in their native recorded format employing the latest in digital transfer technologies. Note that this is the track list for the original Decca UK vinyl LP release of this title which is sort of a combination of US "December's Children" and "Out Of Our Heads". Also note that is does not include the mega hit Satisfaction.
Early Stones recordings don't get much better than this. Firmly established as celebrities, the band began to use the … Full Descriptionpandemonium it inspired as an artistic source. Nowhere is the band's initial reaction to fame and music business drama more apparent than in the humorous, mocking "The Under Assistant West Coast Promotion Man," in which the Stones effectively skewer the sleazier side of the record industry. Naturally, this will always be known as the album that features the original version of "Satisfaction," which would remain the band's signature tune throughout its career, but that's really just the tip of the iceberg.
