THE ROLLING STONES - 'Get Off Of My Cloud' / 'The Singer Not The Song' (Decca F.12263) Oct 1965
Great 45 to follow up the massive world wide hit 'Satisfaction'.... It was recorded on the 6th and 7th of September 1965 and released as a single in the UK on the 22nd October. How's that for a quick turnaround? I'm assuming The Rolling Stones were touring the USA at the time of recording because they used RCA Studios in Hollywood.
According to Mick Jagger he wrote the lyrics for 'Get Off Of My Cloud' and Keith Richard came up with the melody. Jagger's vocals are particularly impressive on the song and pretty much every US garage front man was influenced by either his singing style or to a lesser extent (thankfully) his daft dancing in the glory years that followed.
Here's a photo of Keith Richard taken by Bent Rej in September 1965 at The Hilton Hotel in London.
