About Aftermath (Rolling Stones album) in brief
Aftermath is a studio album by the English rock band the Rolling Stones. It is the band’s fourth British and sixth American studio album. The group recorded the album at RCA Studios in California in December 1965 and March 1966. It was released in the United Kingdom on 15 April 1966 by Decca Records and in the U.S. on 2 July by London Records. The album is considered by music scholars to be an artistic breakthrough for the Stones. Aftermath was an immediate commercial success in both the UK and the US, topping the British albums chart for eight consecutive weeks and eventually achieving platinum certification from the Recording Industry Association of America. It reflected the youth culture and values of 1960s Swinging London and the burgeoning counterculture while attracting thousands of new fans to the group. Its subversive music solidified the group’s rebellious rock image while pioneering the darker psychological and social content that glam rock and British punk rock would explore in the 1970s. It marked the beginnings of the LP replacing the single as popular music’s dominant product and artistic medium, although some listeners were offended by the derisive attitudes towards female characters in certain songs. The Stones’ outspoken attitude on songs like “Satisfaction” and “Get of My Cloud” alienated the establishment of rock music, which they had long been promoted as a rougher alternative. With the success of the Jagger-Richards-satisfied singles, the band increasingly rivalled the Beatles’ musical influence and influence.
The Rolling Stones’ first classic album, Aftermath has since been considered the most important of the Stones’ early, formative music and their firstclassic album, frequently ranking on professional lists of the greatest Albums of the 1960s and 70s. The band’s next album, The Next Day, will be released in September 2015. The next Rolling Stones album will be the follow-up to “The Next Day” and will be out in October 2015. It will be followed by “The Stones’ Greatest Hits” in November 2015 and “The Last Waltz” in December 2016. The last Stones album to be released will be “The New Rolling Stones” in March 2016. This will be their first album to consist entirely of original compositions, all of which were credited to Mick Jagger and Keith Richards, and the first to be recorded during breaks between their international tours. The new album will also feature Brian Jones, who experimented with instruments not usually associated with popular music, including the sitar, Appalachian dulcimer, Japanese koto and marimbas, as well as guitar and harmonica. The American edition was issued with a shorter track listing, substituting the single “Paint It, Black” in place of four of the British version’s songs, in keeping with the industry preference for shorter LPs in the US market at the time. The UK release featured a run-time of more than 52 minutes, the longest for a popular music LP up to that point. The US edition featured a track listing that included the single “I Can’t Go for That”
