Editors’ Notes Not quite all-out psychedelia, Between the Buttons was a significant step forward for the Stones. The album brought a touch of the Kinks' music-hall whimsy ("Blow!" Mick Jagger commands before a kazoo solo on "Cool, Calm and Collected") to the band's sneering critique of the British class system. At the same time, they hadn't put away the fuzz-tones, as evidenced by sharp rockers like "Miss Amanda Jones." Though it contained some of the Stones' poppiest music to date, Buttons is hardly just a lighthearted romp; the double-sided hit "Let's Spend the Night Together" and "Ruby Tuesday" is a further sign of their grown-up concerns. Compare and contrast this edition with the UK release, which drops the singles and retains several cuts that wound up on the American album Flowers.
