I Can't Be Satisfied 9. Look What You've Done Off The Hook Pain In My Heart Susie Q Suzie Q Time Is on My Side Time Is on My Side version 1 Under the Boardwalk What a weird name, sounds like something out of a Brothers Grimm fairytale rather than rock'n'roll-related. But then the association is clear enough.
Cynical logic, yes, but it has always worked. And even if the Christmas of '65 is long gone, the album, for some reason, still remains. Predictably, it is the weakest of all early Stones releases, and the most easily expendable one if you can get most of the good stuff on compilations. And, as if in mockery of British audiences, it shamelessly steals the cover off the redcoat release of Out Of Our Heads.
Up until now, the Stones were too scared to write songs. I mean, it's all right for us to sit back and sneer at all those uninventive British invasion bands, covering one professional songwriter after another until they'd run out of professionalism and have to resort to songs with titles like 'Sha La La La La'.
But many of them weren't merely unable of writing: they were afraid. Afraid their material would inevitably pale next to the originals and it often did , afraid of getting mounts of flack for being too trivial and derivative and they often were , afraid of shouldering new, unknown responsibilities. And in the Stones' case, they also had Brian Jones, who didn't give a damn about creating - he just wanted to play the black man's blues and be done with it.
Historically important, but this is not the kind of live album you'll want on your turntable too often Don't confound this album with the earlier EP of the same name. That one was a document of their British tour, this one is a document of their British tour, although, perversely, it was originally released only in America. English to the core, and it's so weird they rejected it. They shouldn't - it's really timeless. Unjustly forgotten. Even The Stones themselves rarely play any songs from this album except for 'Let's Spend The Night Together', of course, but let us not forget that the original British release did not feature this one.
Also, Keith did 'Connection' while playing solo, but that's another matter. No greatest hits here, no timeless classics. And yet - it's as good as anything, and next to Satanic , holds its right place as one of the most underrated Stones' albums ever. Even more underrated than Satanic , in fact: where Satanic is something of a 'cult' album and a major point of controversy for Stones' fans, Buttons is simply never mentioned at all, as if it never existed.
But no, ladies and gentlemen, it's useless to pretend that this album is a throwaway! It's great! This is a weird album, not exactly a compilation, but rather an interesting effort to introduce the Americans to those particular tracks that were left off the original British releases, namely, Aftermath and Between The Buttons.
