"The Rolling Stones No. 2" is the second UK album by The Rolling Stones released in 1965 following the massive success of 1964's debut "The Rolling Stones". Not surprisingly, "The Rolling Stones No. 2" followed its predecessor's tendency to largely feature R&B covers. However, it does contain three compositions from the still-developing Mick Jagger/Keith Richards songwriting team.

Using the cover shot for "12 X 5", the second US-released album in October 1964, "The Rolling Stones No. 2"'s tracklisting would largely be emulated on the upcoming US release of "The Rolling Stones, Now!". While Eric Easton was co-credited as producer alongside Andrew Loog Oldham on The Rolling Stones' debut album, Oldham takes full production duties for "The Rolling Stones No, 2", which was recorded sporadically in the UK and US during 1964.

A huge hit in the United Kingdom upon release, "The Rolling Stones No. 2" spent 10 weeks at #1 in early 1965, becoming one of the year's biggest sellers in the United Kingdom.

Due to the preference towards the American albums, ABKCO Records has overlooked both "The Rolling Stones" and "The Rolling Stones No. 2" for CD release in 1986 and during its remastering series in 2002. Consequently, the album has been out of print for many years and has thus been widely bootlegged by collectors.
