Rolling Stones 'Out Of Our Heads'
1st UK Pressing Cat No.LK.4733 ((Mono)) Unboxed Decca Labels!
Near Mint Vinyl! Near Mint Audio! Looks and Sounds Barely Ever Played!
1st Issue Robert Stace Laminated front Cover!
An Archive Copy Final Upgrade!
Another from my personal collection! Original 1965 1st UK Mono pressing of Out Of Our Heads. Again for the best possible audio quality on the planet the earliest stampers make all the difference. Look Earlist possible "1" to "1" Mother Stampers but that's not all. This vinyl looks and sounds like it has only ever had a handful of plays ever! Just try to find another copy like this! The vinyl's playing surface is near mint almost like new unbelievably rare for a 50 year old Rolling Stones record like this! For me the most important aspect of collecting vinyl is the audio quality. I played this four times at very loud volume on a top system, importantly using a dedicated mono cartridge prior to this listing. The audio is like a new vinyl in my opinion. It is clear and vibrant through out and amazingly no interference heard at all on my systems! No Clicks,ticks or pops heard, absolutely beautiful throughout! Audio graded as near as Mint throughout! This is complete with the original Decca poly lined record sleeve and 1st issue Robert Stace laminated front only cover!
This copy is for audiophiles out there a final upgrade in my opinion.
Listen to the complete album in the player below. Actual recording from this vinyl listed!
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.
Most of Out of Our Heads comprises rhythm and blues cover songs. According to music critic Richie Unterberger, the album's US release largely had soul covers and its "classic rock singles", including "The Last Time", "Play with Fire", and "Satisfaction", still drew on the band's R&B and blues roots, but were updated to "a more guitar-based, thoroughly contemporary context." Kent H. Benjamin of The Austin Chronicle wrote that the album was "the culmination of the Stones' early soul/R&B sound" In his review of the album's UK edition, Allmusic's Bruce Eder characterised it as rock and roll and R&B.
The British Out of Our Heads – with a different cover – added songs that would surface later in the US on December's Children (And Everybody's) and others that had not been released in the UK thus far (such as "Heart of Stone") instead of the already-released live track and recent hit singles (as singles rarely featured on albums in the UK in those times).
Issued later that September, Out of Our Heads reached No. 2 in the UK charts behind the Beatles' Help!. It was The Rolling Stones' last UK album to rely upon R&B covers; the forthcoming Aftermath was entirely composed by Mick Jagger and Keith Richards.

This original 50 year old vinyl, on initial inspection of the playing surface looks superb and lays perfectly flat on the turntable. This is free of any warping. Even in strong light I find it hard to even see a blemish on the playing surface at least no real scratches to mention,, No marks that would cause any real noticeable interference during the audio that I heard! Any marks that there could possibly be would be light whispy sleeve removal only, but I struggle to find any ! (Please note this is the original thick , heavy and chunky slab of vinyl only found like this onthe earliest pressings almost looks like a new vinyl. Unbelievably rare like this!)The vinyl lays perfectly flat on the turntable and is free of any warping! Quite unbelievable to find on a Rollinmg Stones record after 50 years!
The Audio Quality
I have played this vinylfour times prior to listing, at very loud volume on a top system,, importantly using a dedicated mono cartridge! This 50 year old vinyl plays through as a new vinyl would in my opinion! One of the best sounding copies that I have ever heard all hand claps were prominent and a controlled audio feel only heard like this on these matrix variations! The audio is absolutely beautiful, crystal clear and very vibrant with that deep bassey feel , only found like this on these earliest originals! I heard (no) clicks or pops and amazingly no real surface or background static during the audio and importantly no distortion or signs that this has been overplayed at all! There are Certainly no skips or jumps!Even in between tracks this is lovely, quite unbelievable to find like this after 50 years! ,, without the usual background surface noise that is so often heard on these early pressings.I would grade the audio very near as mint throughout!
An audiophile Audio archive copy never need to upgrade in my opinion!
hear for your self in the player above, actual recording from the vinyl!
Please note! I always add this disclaimer! I have given my honest opinion when describing the audio quality of this album and those who know the listings and vinyls that i sell my prime interest is the audio quality! Please allow for the odd isolated static but nothing consistent through out the audio! This is a genuine (not) reissue vinyl that is 50 years old and would have been played on a system that is 50 years old! Audio like new in my opinion.
Please note, this album has been stored in a case laying dormant for at least 45 years or more. A build up of dirt and dust in the grooves causes static crackle. A constant clean before each play is recommended. This will reduce any static and will enhance the audio quality. Points to note, I notice debrit on the playing surface after play so this will need cleaning before each play which will further enhance this audio quality.
This is the original Decca grooved Unboxed Decca labels! A truly unique scarce copy in lovely condition, ''MADE IN GREAT BRITAIN''.! (UK PRESS ONLY)!
There is little if (no) spindle ware (the hole is perfectly round) see photo. Barely a handful of spidering can be seen angled in strong light (this has obviously barely been played no more than a handful of times and certainly not overplayed in my opinion!
THE RECORD SLEEVE
This is the original Decca ,poly lined record sleeve (Correct for this pressing) Becoming fragile at the edges light creasing/staining with age only. Nice and bright condition. Please note,THIS IS THE ORIGINAL! The vinyl is always stored separately from the vinyl for protection. This is how I always store my records.
The original 1st UKPRESS ROBERT STACE Printed.super glossy laminated front only of the cover! There is no splits or tares!Amazingly there is no real main or nasty laminate creases to mention just very minor two or three thumbs type creases in the laminate only to mention and not noticed unless looked for in my opinion very very minor edge crease lines very few. (very very rare to find (any light creases or indents are very minor indeed to mention on the front laminate and no real rubbing to mention. Very light vinyl impression only noticed angled to the light but for the last 40 years this has been stored separate from the record. The rear is exceptionally clean creases are not really noticed unless looked for in my opinion and are feint. Staining spots or yellowing with age is only really noticed if looked for, in general this is way above average and lovely and clean throughout. The pinched end spine is near as perfect all text can be read clearly. This cover must grade at least excellent to excellent plus, in my opinion. Try to find a better cover, impossible like this!
