About The Rolling Stones’ unreleased version of ‘Try Me’…

Written by: James Brown
Recorded: Chess Studios, Chicago, USA, May 10-11 1965

Try Me was the title track from James Brown’s first 1959 album. It was re-released in 1964 under the brash title The Unbeatable James Brown – 16 Hits. A 10″ RCA Victor acetate of the Stones playing an Everly Brothers song (title unknown) was also recorded at these sessions. There are no vocals. It was auctioned in 1990.

Out of Our Heads is the 3rd British and 4th American studio album by the English rock band the Rolling Stones, released in two editions with different covers and track listings. In the US, London Records released it on 30 July 1965, while Decca Records released its UK edition on 24 September 1965.

Besides the key band members of singer Mick Jagger, guitarists Brian Jones and Keith Richards, bassist Bill Wyman, and drummer Charlie Watts, the album also contains musical contributions from former Rolling Stones member Ian Stewart. It was produced by the group’s manager Andrew Loog Oldham.

As with the prior two albums, it consists mostly of covers of American blues, soul and rhythm and blues songs, though the group wrote some of their own material for this album (4 out of the 12 tracks on the UK version, and 6 out of 12 for the USA version). The American version contains “(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction”, which would be the band’s first number one US hit, and would go on to top the charts in 10 other countries, including the band’s native UK, and being ranked as the second greatest song of all time by Rolling Stone.

Out of Our Heads became the group’s first number one on the American Billboard 200 album chart; in the UK it charted at number two.
