Early Rolling Stones Publicity Flyer

An October 1963 UK publicity flyer, originally distributed to record dealers, advertising the Rolling Stones second single “I Wanna Be Your Man” and promising “Another Hit,” a follow-up to the Stones first single “Come On” released in the UK on June 7, 1963.

The band decided to withdraw the song originally slated as their second single, “Poison Ivy,” because, in Wyman’s words, “We were still not entirely satisfied that it was a strong enough follow-up.”

The answer came from John Lennon and Paul McCartney, who gave the Stones “I Wanna Be Your Man.” Wyman recalls, “John and Paul ran through ‘I Wanna Be Your Man’ for us. Paul, being left-handed, amazed me by playing my bass backwards. Brian tried slide on it, which sounded great.”

The single was released in the UK on November 1, 1963, and was indeed “Another Hit,” charting at No. 12 in the UK.

Folded: 8 1/4 by 4 3/8 inches
