  • Big, rich and natural sounding, the new material on this album was recorded in 1964 when Sinatra's voice was in very fine form indeed
  • Fairly quiet throughout - Mint Minus to Mint Minus Minus on the first side, Mint Minus Minus on the second
  • "The highlight of the record was the hit title song, which featured a subdued but forceful and steady backbeat. The rhythm itself was indicative of Sinatra's effort to accept the new popular music."

The Rolling Stones
It's Only Rock 'N' Roll

Our Price: $399.99

  • An amazing sounding copy with Triple Plus (A+++) sound the second side and Double Plus (A++) on the first
  • On the better pressings the sound is cleaner and clearer, yet at the same time even richer than others we played
  • The superbly talented Andy Johns engineered, so you can be sure that this is the sound the Stones were looking for
  • "Throughout, the Stones wear their title as the "World's Greatest Rock & Roll Band" with a defiant smirk, which makes the bitter cynicism of "If You Can't Rock Me" and the title track all the more striking, and the reggae experimentation... all the more enjoyable."

ZZ Top never sounded as much like a band of its time as they did here."
