Radio 68: all the sounds and the voices of the sixties * Happy to be Different

Standells cover Try It Banned

After two albums of authentic R&B covered in the Very Raw+ style, The Rolling Stones’ third LP consisted entirely of self-penned songs. Not necessarily R&B. And not necessarily raw. AFTERMATH was a mixed bag of pop tunes (Mother’s Little Helper), ballads (Lady Jane), R&Beat (Under My Thumb) and a freaky harmonica parlando like the 11 minutes plus ‘Going Home’. Some of the Jagger-Richards compositions of that era were successfully covered (‘Out of Time’ became a huge hit for Chris Farlowe),  others only moderately so (David Garrick’s ‘Lady Jane’). Many landed in the dustbin, whatever their artistic merits.
