THE ROLLING STONES - ALBUM 1967






BETWEEN THE BUTTONS

Recorded & mixed: August 3-11, 1966: RCA Studios, Los Angeles, USA November 8-26, 1966: Olympic Sound Studios, London, England
Producer: Andrew Oldham Engineers: Dave Hassinger & Glyn Johns Released: January 1967 Original label: London Records (Polygram)Our new album is a pretty good indication of where we are going - if, in fact, we are going anywhere. I think it's better than Aftermath. We just want to go on making records that we like rather than worry about where we are going. - Mick Jagger, January 1967

Between the Buttons was the first record we made when we hadn't been on the road and weren't shit-hot from playing gigs every night. Plus, everyone was stoned out of their brains... Between the Buttons was the first time we took a breath and distanced ourselves a little from the madness of touring and all. So in a way, to us it felt like a bit of a new beginning. But not everybody was in great shape. Brian was starting to be wonky at the time.
- Keith Richards, 2002

Flowers is the eighth U.S. studio album by The Rolling Stones, released in 1967. A mishmash collection, these tracks had either appeared as singles, been left off of the American versions of Aftermath and Between the Buttons, culled from studio sessions dating back several years, or simply reissues of songs recently released on other albums.

We were on acid doing the cover picture. I always remember doing that. It was like being at school, you know, sticking on the bits of colored paper and things. It was really silly. But we enjoyed it. (laughs) Mick Jagger, 1995
