The Rolling Stones released their seventh US LP “Between the Buttons” on Feb. 11, 1967. The LP was their 5th in the UK and had been released a couple of week earlier on Jan. 20th there. The album releases were different between the two countries. The American version included “Ruby Tuesday” and “Let’s Spend the Night Together” which were not on the UK version and deleted “Back Street Girl” and “Please Go Home” which were on the UK version.

Sessions for the album began on Aug. 3, 1966 and lasted until the 11th at Los Angeles’ RCA Studios during the Rolling Stones’ 1966 American Tour. During this time, Brian Wilson of The Beach Boys was invited down to RCA Studios during the recording of “My Obsession”, which remains one of his favourite Rolling Stones songs.

The US record company made a good call by including “Ruby Tuesday” on the record as it reached #1, making Between the Buttons hit to #2 in the US, going gold.

Any of you still put this LP on and enjoy it?

Happy 51st Birthday to The Rolling Stones LP “Between The Buttons”!!!
