Released in US on February 12th 1965
Rolling Stones Now! was also pressed in UK on the London label for export to USA. Only Mono LP’s were made. The LP’s were put into UK made inner bags and then shipped to US. On arrival there, they were put into US made covers.

Cover version

There are two versions of the back cover existing. The text written by Andrew Loog Oldham on NOW! is the same text as on the UK No2. This is the text that includes the famous “Blind Man” statement. The US made sleeve for this LP is also found with the same censorship as the UK No2. So, both the long original text version and the sensored short version is existing with a UK made LP inside the cover.
