Today is the 54th anniversary of the release of the Rolling Stones self titled debut album. The first song released off the album in the USA was written by Mick Jagger and Keith Richards and titled “Tell Me (You’re Coming Back To Me)”. For a first effort by an unknown group, the song did well, rising to #24 on the Hot 100. The song was also a departure from the R & B covers the band was known for in England. It caught my attention back then, I even bought the 45 record version. I wish I still had that 45 record, it represents the Stones first radio appearance in the USA, and the Stones’ first forgotten oldie.
