100 GREAT SONGS FROM THE BRITISH INVASION: 19TH NERVOUS BREAKDOWN- THE ROLLING STONES

The Rolling Stones – 19th Nervous Breakdown (1966, Terre Haute pressing,  Vinyl) - Discogs

100 Great Songs From The British Invasion: 1963-1966. 19th Nervous Breakdown- The Rolling Stones. Recorded ’19th Nervous Breakdown’ at RCA Studios in Hollywood, California in late 1965- and it was released as a single in February 1966. The song started out when Mick came up with the title and then wrote around it. While the single was a huge success in both the US and UK- reaching #2 in both charts- it ended a streak of five straight #1’s in the UK which started back in the summer of 1964-‘It’s All Over Now’, ‘Little Red Rooster’, ‘The Last Time’, ‘Satisfaction’ and ‘Get Off Of My Cloud.’ By 1966 The Rolling Stones were well established in the US as hit makers in the US after ‘Satisfaction.’ My favorite part of this song is- Bill Wyman’s ‘dive-bombing’ bass at the end of the song.

  1. In their early years, they put out some good stuff. When Brian passed on, it went down hill from there on. I saw them once in the late 60s, once in the 90s and then a final time in 2015. Not impressed with he 2015 show and my son paid $220. per ticket. Yikes!
