It was our manager (Andrew Oldham)'s idea of hip. Beat poetry.

- Mick Jagger, 1995



We are recording in the U.S. solely because we believe we can produce our best work there and we want to give British fans the best. We can record right through from 6 o'clock at night to 6 o'clock in the morning over there without so much as a tea break, and the engineers are first class. We should be able to complete most of our recording while on tour in America and it will not be necessary to make tehese special trips often.

- Mick Jagger, September 1965



We could have made a much better thing out of this album.

- Brian Jones, 1965-66

December's Children isn't (an album), it's just a collection of songs.

- Mick Jagger, 1968
