While in the Bay Area of California last weekend to attend the Burger Boogaloo, I came across this oddball Rolling Stones cover at Amoeba, Berkeley.
The Rolling Stones - Aftermath (London 1966)
The content of the record is the standard non-American full length version of the album. The cover is quite different.
This appears to be part of a Japanese box set.
The back shows a shot from Franklin Canyon - above Beverly Hills. It's close to where I live. I could ride my bike there and have often tried to find the exact location of these iconic photos. I don't imagine they're far from the road.
The gatefold contains some of the same photos as High Tide (and Green Grass). And we get the lyrics in Japanese. I would love to see an English translation. They're often completely wrong and quire humorous.
Label is a black London export. I don't believe I've ever seen this.
The record is completely hacked. I'll stick to my UK pressing from the '70's.
