Stones on DECCA

Out Of Our Heads Expo

Mono LK4725 / Stereo SKL4725

Issued in Europe in September of 1965

This LP was not issued in England even though it was made there. It went on export to Europe main land. It had the same cover and songs as the US version of Out Of Out Heads. The UK OOOH LK4733 had a different set of song as well as a different cover. Reason why they made this LP and exported it to the rest of Europe is not known. But my theory would be that the UK OOOH did not have Satisfaction on it but this one had. DECCA in UK did not put songs issued on 45’s on LP’s but that was done in US. So, to get the big hit of 1965 on a LP in Europe, they opted for issuing the US version insted of the UK version.

This LP was pressed in rather small quantities so there are not that many variations to look for.

Vinyl versions

Grooved and non groved labels

Both Mono and Stereo LP’s of OOOH export version can be found with grooved and non grooved labels. This indicates that mono LP’s were pressed for export up to the end on the 60’s.

Cover versions

Mono and Stereo numbers on the front and on the back.

Printed by

All covers have been made by the same supplier: “Printed in England by Robert Stace Ltd”.

I'm All Right

The very first Mono covers had song tiltle for number 6. as I’m Alright. This was at some point changed to the correct one: I’m All Right. I’m Alright is not existing on stereo covers.

I’M ALRIGHT, only on mono covers.

I’M ALL RIGHT, both on mono and stereo covers.

Label versions

Even the labels that usually have lots of small variations are almost identical on this LP.
