'Come On' was released as a 7" single in the UK on June 7, 1963, where it peaked at #21.
'Come On' was originally written and first released by Chuck Berry in 1961.
In May 1963, a couple of days after Brian Jones signed the band to a 3-year recording contract with Decca, Andrew Oldham had the boys recording their first single at the Olympic Sound Studios in Barnes, London. The original mixing by attendant engineer Roger Savage was not to the taste of Dick Rowe [PR, known for having turned down the Beatles] and therefore was re-cut at Decca 's West Hampstead studios.

About the songs
Nearly 80 songs recorded by the Rolling Stones entered either the UK or US charts since 1963, twelve of them peaking at #1 ['Satisfaction', 'Get Off Of My Cloud', 'Paint It, Black' and 'Honky Tonk Women' were #1 in both countries].
The early years also were the most prolific and, whereas most titles were not yet penned by the Jagger-Richards tandem, record labels Decca [in the UK] and London [in the US] would issue singles at a frantic pace, building the band's reputation as the Beatles' most serious threat.
However, no global marketing strategy would emerge before the 70's, and both countries cultivated their differences in their respective discographies, as would their affiliates in other parts of the world.
The richness and diversity of the Rolling Stones singles discography is mainly due to the fact that, during the 60's, Decca would consider singles an independent market from the LPs' one, whereas London would use this format as a 'lift' for album sales. Therefore, British singles would offer non-album tracks [except for compilations], and Decca England would pass on a few US releases, while the US would opt for different B-sides and be a little more productive.
US exclusive couplings and singles would however often be released on Decca in Europe, notably in Scandinavia for which UK would exclusively press 'export' singles [Scandinavian countries also pressed their own records and imported regular UK releases, see the Danish, Swedish and Norwegian discographies].
