1964: The Rolling Stones' self-titled debut album is released in the United Kingdom. The album's tracks reflected the band's love for R&B, including covers of songs by Chuck Berry and Willie Dixon, and featured only one Mick Jagger and Keith Richards original composition, "Tell Me (You're Coming Back)." The American edition of the album, with a slightly different track list, would be released on May 30, 1964, with the added title "England's Newest Hit Makers."
