About Between the Buttons

Between the Buttons is the fifth British and seventh American studio album by the English rock band the Rolling Stones, released on 20 January 1967 in the UK and 11 February 1967 in the US as the follow-up to Aftermath. It was the beginning of the Stones' brief foray into psychedelia. It is among the band's most musically adventurous works; by the time principal recording occurred on the album, founder Brian Jones had all but abandoned his original role as guitarist, instead playing a wide variety of other instruments. Also appearing on the album were band members Mick Jagger (lead vocals, various percussion, harmonica), Keith Richards (lead and rhythm guitar), Bill Wyman (bass), and Charlie Watts (drums). Keyboard parts were contributed by former member Ian Stewart and frequent collaborator Jack Nitzsche. It would be the last album produced by Andrew Loog Oldham, who had to this point acted as the band's manager and produced all of their prior albums. As with prior albums, the American and British versions contained slightly different track listings. In 2012, the American version of Between the Buttons, which included "Let's Spend the Night Together" and "Ruby Tuesday", was ranked number 357 on Rolling Stone magazine's 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.
