When I was a kid it was taken for granted that you bought UK bands in UK pressings because the sound would be better and the track sequencing would be what the band intended. There are
good US variants, though: the American versions of Out Of Our Heads
and Between the Buttons
are stronger than their UK equivalents, and the US The Rolling Stones, Now
is far superior to the British Rolling Stones No 2
. Sound quality was still a problem back in the days of vinyl, though, and I used to assemble my US Rolling Stones albums from British pressings because the American versions usually had a lot of tape hiss and really awful fake stereo on them.
