"Between the Buttons (US)"
The Rolling Stones
The last of the albums to be released with a different track listing in America and Britain, “Let’s Spend the Night Together” and “Ruby Tuesday” were both included having been released as a double a-side in America.
With the controversy over the lyrics of the former song, most notably when Ed Sullivan banned the Stones from singing ‘night’ and subsequent black listing by many American radio stations it only made number fifty five. Nothing could stop “Ruby Tuesday” and it went to number one in early 1967. In Britain the two songs were also released as a single that made number three. Both the US and the UK version of the album was the last to be ‘produced’ by Andrew Loog Oldham. “Something Happened To Me Yesterday” features Brian Jones on sax and trombone. Regular keyboard players Jack Nitzsche and Ian Stewart are joined by Nicky Hopkins, who plays piano on several tracks, the start of his lengthy spell as a sideman.
