What's All This Then

Why should I care what this guy has to say?

The correct answer is that you shouldn’t. We’re all entitled to our opinions. Develop your own. I try to be sane and rational, but that may change with the level of caffeine intake. I’m just telling my stories in the hopes they may amuse and/or inform others. And... I Confess... I'm showing off my bitchen collection a bit.

A Japanese Aftermath

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.
