Notes

General practice in the early 1960s was to release overseas versions of albums by British artists with more hit singles included to aid sales and marketability. As a result the US version omits album songs on the UK version, even carrying an alternative title of "England's Newest Hitmakers", whilst the UK version omits the corresponding singles included on the US version.

The American version of the album, originally subtitled but later officially called England's Newest Hit Makers,is the band's debut American album and was released by London Records on 30 May 1964, a month and a half after the British version.
The track "Not Fade Away" (the A-side of the band's third UK single) replaced "I Need You Baby", and the titles of the tracks "Now I've Got a Witness (Like Uncle Phil and Uncle Gene)" and "Tell Me (You're Coming Back)" were shortened to "Now I've Got a Witness" and "Tell Me" on most versions of the American release.
Upon its release, The Rolling Stones reached No. 11 in the US, going gold in the process. To date, this is the Stones' only American studio album that has failed to place in the top five on the Billboard album charts.

NOTE about how to discern early UK pressings:

An important information in order to identify the early UK pressing for the first Rolling Stones album is the Tax Code "KT".
It MUST be present both on the label and in the matrix/runout, otherwise it is a later pressing, as explained here below:
Most of the Decca records has also a tax code around 12 a clock on the vinyl. This tax code is not any specific Decca code but the official code used in UK before 1973 to determinate the sales tax %.
- MT code was the official tax code in UK from January 1st to June 30th 1963.
- KT code was used in between July 1st 1963 and November 22nd 1968.
- JT code was used from November 23rd 1968 and up to April 1st 1973 when UK government took the VAT tax system into use.
If the tax code is missing, then the LP is pressed after April 1st 1973.
The dates mentioned are the official dates when the codes changed. There may be a slight overlap as it is not known how fast Decca did change the stampers to have the correct tax code. Some LP’s do have a double coding, both JT and KT on the same vinyl. These LP’s may have been pressed just about the time when the code change took place, November 1968.

''First'' pressings of the UK release are on a red/silver Decca ''ear'' label. There are, however, quite some differences.

The very first issue plays a shorter version of ''Tell Me'' with a running time of 2:52. This edition is recognizable by the matrix number of side B being either XARL 6272-1A or XARL 6272-2A.

All later issues (with varying matrix numbers) play a longer version of ''Tell Me'' with a running time of 4:06, but both the labels and covers have differences: five label variations and four cover variations are in existence, making for twenty discernible editions in addition to the very first one described above.

Cover A1
The back cover lists ''Mona'' as track A4, the cover has ''flipbacks'': top and bottom are folded over the back cover.

Cover A2
The back cover lists ''Mona'' as track A4, the cover has no ''flipbacks'', but the lamination is folded over to the back cover in a small band.

Cover B1
The back cover lists ''I Need You Baby'' as track A4, the cover has ''flipbacks'': top and bottom are folded over the back cover.

Cover B2
The back cover lists ''I Need You Baby'' as track A4, the cover has no ''flipbacks'', but the lamination is folded over to the back cover in a small band.

Label V:
The label rim reads on top ''Made in England. The Decca Record Co. Ltd.'', the NCB (no full stops) and B.I.E.M. captions are on the right hand side on side A. On side B the BIEM caption is omitted and N.C.B. caption appears with full stops.

Label W
The label rim reads on top "Made In England. The Decca Record Co. Ltd". On Side 1 label the N.C.B. and B.I.E.M. captions are stacked vertically on the left hand side. On Side 2 label the N.C.B. and B.I.E.M. captions are side by side on the left hand side.

Label X
The label rim reads on top ''Made in England'' and nothing more, the N.C.B. and B.I.E.M. captions are on the left hand side.

Label Y
The label rim reads on top ''Made in England. The Decca Record Co. Ltd.'', the N.C.B. and B.I.E.M. captions are on the right hand side.

Label Z
The label rim reads on top ''Made in England. The Decca Record Co. Ltd.'', the N.C.B. caption is on the right hand side, the B.I.E.M. caption is missing altogether.

Still later pressings have a ''boxed'' Decca logo on top of the label, these are considered second pressings.
