A milestone in the recording career of the Rolling Stones, Mick Jagger and Keith Richards wrote every single track on Aftermath. It’s arguably the first ever rock album. The credentials? At over 11 minutes, Going Home was one of the longest songs ever on any pop album and all tracks were recorded at two three-day marathon sessions in Hollywood in December 1965 and March 1966. Most of all, it sounds like a rock album with a cohesion not demonstrated up to then by any other band. Among the now-classics are number one hit single Paint It, Black, added to this US version, plus Lady Jane and Under My Thumb. Jack Nitzsche and Ian Stewart share the keyboard duties and Brian Jones plays a variety of instruments including marimba, sitar and Appalachian dulcimer. This US version is three songs shorter than the UK version at the insistence of the Stones American record label which felt the original British release, at 14 songs spanning 53 minutes, was too long.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
