The Rolling Stones - Big Hits (High Tide and Green Grass) 1966 US/UK editions


 Big Hits (High Tide and Green Grass)



Big Hits (High Tide and Green Grass) is the first official compilation album by The Rolling Stones, released on 28 March 1966, on London Records in the United States and on 4 November 1966, by Decca Records in the United Kingdom. The two releases featured different cover art and track listing. The front cover for the American release was used for the rear photo on the UK edition.



The UK Big Hits (High Tide and Green Grass) includes tracks released after the American edition appeared. The Rolling Stones' debut 1963 single, a cover of Chuck Berry's "Come On", was included, but its more successful follow-up, "I Wanna Be Your Man" - composed by rivals (although in reality as friends) Lennon/McCartney - was left off the album.


In August 2002 this US edition of Big Hits (High Tide and Green Grass) was reissued in a new remastered CD and SACD digipak by ABKCO Records. The re-release contains stereo mixes of "(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction", "Time Is on My Side", "It's All Over Now", and "Heart of Stone".

The British version was again made available to the public as part of a limited edition vinyl box set, titled "The Rolling Stones 1964-1969", in November 2010. It was also re-released digitally via iTunes.

It was released once more in 2011 by Universal Music Enterprises in a Japanese only SHM-SACD version.

"Большие хиты (Высокая вода и зеленая трава)" - первый официальный сборник The Rolling Stones, вышедший в конце 1966 года на Decca Records в Соединенном Королевстве и на London Records в США. Причем в Великобритании альбом издали на семь месяцев позже, чем в Америке. Эти издания по обе стороны Атлантики отличаются как обложками, так и составом песен. Фотография группы с лицевой стороны американского издания на задней стороне обложки британской версии.

В британском варианте включена кавер-версия песни Чака Берри "Come On", но исключен один из популярнейших хитов Стоунз "I Wanna Be Your Man", сочиненный для них Ленноном и Маккартни. Big Hits (High Tide and Green Grass) достиг 4-го места в UK charts.

В США Big Hits (High Tide and Green Grass) добрался до 3-го места, оставался в хит-параде два года и считается одной из лучших ретроспектив группы. Американский вариант альбома значительно короче - 36:29 (британский = 42:40).
