Which version is the Mono 1st press? And why this album was not released on UK 1966?

Less is more with the american version of 'Aftermath'. The english release features four other songs: 'Take It or Leave It', 'Out of Time', 'Mother's Little Helper' and 'What to Do'. 'Out of Time' is interesting. A nice pop melody combined with another Jagger put-down: 'You're obsolete, my baby, my poor discarded baby'. 'Mothers Little Helper' wouldn't appear on an album until "Flowers" for american fans. We get 'Paint It Black' instead. But 'Take It Or Leave It' and 'What to Do' are very uninteresting excursions. The american release omits these songs and one hardly notices.

"High and Dry" and "I Am Waiting" are truly underrated songs in the Stones' catalog. I still think 'Doncha Bother Me' is mistitled and should be called 'Doncha Follow Me'. 'Lady Jane' is still lovely baroque pop and 'Under My Thumb', definitely in the Top Ten of Rolling Stones' songs, is included here. The hit single included here ('Paint It Black' b/w 'Stupid Girl') does not wear well to my ear. "Paint It Black" is a bore after all these years. "Stupid Girl" is a curious Stones' song with its retro organ arrangement. It's a parody of the misogynist, unlike 'Under My Thumb's' real thing.

"Flight 505" is fun, with the barrelhouse piano (Ian Stewart?) reprising the classic riff from 'Satisfaction' in the opening. "Going Home" is for Stones' fans only. I get a kick out of it, but it's basically Jagger masturbating with the mike for eight minutes!

This album does showcase the songwriting talents of Mick and Keith. They've come a long way from 'Stoned'!
