Description

The Rolling Stones: Mick Jagger (vocals, guitar, piano); Keith Richards (vocals, acoustic & electric guitars, piano, bass); Ron Wood (acoustic & electric guitars, pedal steel guitar, bass, percussion, background vocals); Bill Wyman (synthesizer, bass); Charlie Watts (drums, percussion).

Additional personnel: Sugar Blue (harmonica); Mel Collins (saxophone); Ian "Mac" McLagan (electric piano, Hammond organ).

Principally recorded at E.M.I. Studios, Paris, France.

SOME GIRLS includes the hits "Beast Of Burden" and "Shattered," and one of the biggest-selling singles of the Stones' career, the disco-crossover "Miss You." The title track caused its share of controversy when its lyrics were attacked as sexist and racist.

Possibly fearing the aging dinosaur label in the punk climate of 1978 New York City, SOME GIRLS rocked harder and more consistently than most Stones albums from the '70s. Revitalized by the chummy guitar dynamic between Keith Richards' impressionistic riffs and Ronnie Wood's perfectionist lead work, the album's merit is in the diversity of its tracks.

Starting with the disco elixir of "Miss You," SOME GIRLS marked new territory for the band. As Ronnie's second album as an official member, the album showed that the Stones' sound had reworked itself, proving there was more to their dynamic than just white boy blues. The range of Ronnie's guitar work spans from the searing country lead in "Far Away Eyes" to the near-rockabilly twang in "Shattered," and finds the Stones sounding tighter and more excited than on their previous albums.

From placing their stamp on The Temptations' "Just My Imagination" to the big-city neurosis of "When The Whip Comes Down" and "Shattered," 1978's SOME GIRLS is a wild rumpus throughout.

What the critics say...

NME (Magazine) (7/9/94, p.43) - 9 - Excellent Plus - "...a sardonic collection of snotty three-chorders...that swagger, that guitar, and those drums were back..."
