'Not Fade Away' was released as a 7" single in the UK on February 21, 1964, where it peaked at #3.
Its US counterpart, released on March 6, 1964, reached #48.
The song was originally recorded by the Buddy Holly's band The Crickets in Clovis, New Mexico, on May 27, 1957. The Rolling Stones version, with a strong emphasis on the Bo Diddley beat, was recorded on January 10, 1964 at the Olympic Studios, London, England. Backed with 'Little By Little', this would be the band's UK third single and their first Top 5 hit in Great Britain.
'Not Fade Away' would also be the band's first single release in the United States, on the London Records label, with 'I Wanna Be Your Man' as the B-side - briefly preceded by 'Stoned', which had immediately been withdrawn.
Unavailable on the first UK eponymous album, 'Not Fade Away' was the opening track of the US debut LP 'England's Newest Hitmakers' released... [+]
