  • With "Some Girls" Jagger and Co. competed against punk in London and disco in New York. The follow-up to "Black And Blue" freed the Stones from the stigma of being a dinosaur band in 1978, the era of the Sex Pistols and Studio-54, consolidated their fame, installed them as rebellious, punked-up glamour hard rockers. "Some Girls" was the best Stones album since "Exile On Main St.," wrote international music critics shortly after its initial release. With a good sixfold platinum status, "Some Girls" is now also the most commercially successful Stones LP of all time. In Paris, virtually without guest musicians, back to basics, as a pure guitar band, with blood and sweat, the Stones recorded a "rock'n'roll noir" work, with politically incorrect, sexist lines such as: "Black girls just want to get f****ed all night / I just don't have that much jam" of the title song. Counterpointed by their #1 single "Miss You," the greatest disco song ever recorded by a rock band. Similarly great and yet completely different: the Top 10 single "Beast of Burden", recently covered by The Kooks.

    The Rolling Stones' 14th studio album was recorded in Paris but written and mixed in disco-crazed New York, as the sounds of a harsh new genre called punk rock started to penetrate the public consciousness. The result of this melting pot is a remarkable, deeply enjoyable record that let the world know that The Stones were still very much alive and kicking it.
