I just need the name of the title font on this EP: The Rolling Stones (1964) by The Rolling Stones released by Decca Studio.

I can't find it! What's the font used for that "The Rolling Stones" title? :)

Attached is the image:

Sadly, not all typefaces that existed in 1964 still exist now, and this one does not appear to have been digitized. A great many generic gothics survived the transition from wood and metal type to phototypesetting, but not beyond.

You could replicate the look using Knockout No. 46 Flyweight or Knockout No. 66 Full Flyweight (using the alternate straight-legged R), Titling Gothic Skyline Standard, or Pakt Condensed Extrabold.

The smaller type appears to be Alternate Gothic.
