Product Description

Product Description

Vinyl LP pressing. Digitally remastered edition of the Rolling Stones' 1978 masterpiece. A fresh, uncompromising attempt to incorporate then-modern pop techniques into the band's familiar sound, Some Girls opens with the Disco sass of "Miss You" and closes with the self-destructive punk of "Shattered." In between, you have an album that solidified their reputation as the world's greatest Rock 'n' Roll band. Some may cite Exile On Main Street as their finest '70s moment, but Some Girls is it's equal, if not a smidgen more exciting.

Few rock stars have played in the intersection of real life, image, and fans' imaginations as smartly (and comically) as Mick Jagger does on Some Girls. With the Stones again running at top pace, Jagger aims his gimlet eye at his and the boys' gossip-column lives (the Chuck Berryish "Respectable," the archly blues-wailing title track), his collapsing marriage (where was Bianca when Mick's pals were trying to hook him up with the "Puerto Rican girls who're just dyin' to meetchoo"?) and the mores and modes of New York society in the Studio 54 era (practically everything here). Slot in Keith's lament "Before They Make Me Run," and this is one of the greatest Stones albums. --Rickey Wright

The reviews of this re-issue that I've read here and elsewhere concentrate on the original Some Girls album and not the new 2011 product.Like most people that will consider buying this new rendering, I'm already well aware of the original album's history, content and its merits and demerits. When it comes to re-issues and expanded versions of familiar music people need to know whether it is worth spending money on a revamped rendition of something that they likely already own or have heard thousands of times before. Well ... I've purchased the new deluxe edition of Some Girls and I'm very pleased to say that the re-mastered sound is terrific and the newly officially released songs on the bonus CD are great! If you are a Stones fan, do yourself a favour and buy the 2011 deluxe edition if only for the "new" songs.Unlike most of the bonus music that came with the re-issued versions of Exile on Main Street and Get Yer Ya's Ya's Out the additional songs here can stand on their own. The songs are rootsy, melodic, darkly humourous (Claudine), and grow on you with repeated listenings. It's too bad they didn't finish these songs in the 70's or couldn't release this bonus compilation then as the follow-up to Some Girls because the new songs are generally superior to the songs on Emotional Rescue.
The bottom line is I'm glad to finally have these new songs and the crisper vibrant remastered sound of the 2011 version of Some Girls: It's a good product by a great band and well worth the price.

Format: Audio CD
This is probably their biggest selling album. 10 songs, a Temptations cover and 9 originals: 2 non-descript punk-based tunes, the disco-esque "Miss You", classic rock standards "Beast Of Burden" and "Shattered", the beautifully offensive country tune "Far Away Eyes", Keith singing lead on the hard rocking "Before They Make Me Run", and generally a sloppy feel as Ron Wood and Mick Jagger play more of the guitar than normal. Few if any studio musicians make an appearance. "Some Girls" is a sort of laid back tune, more offensive lyrics here, and basically you have the Stones being themselves, and that is one cool sound. When they follow a trend, they always do it well, whether it's psychedelia ("2000 Light Years from Home") or grunge ("Love is Strong"), and that remains true on this one. Here they absorb Punk, Disco, and 70's Rock influences, and do them better than just about anyone. Irresistable.

By Pieter Uys HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on July 22 2006
Format: Audio CD
This 1978 release from The Stones offers an impressive variety of styles, from their take on disco in the sublime Miss You to the humorous country of Far Away Eyes to the rock balladry of Beast Of Burden. Not many Stones albums offer such a variety of musical styles.

The rock tracks are tough and uncompromising, like the decadent When The Whip Comes Down, the acidic title track and the anthemic Before They Make Me Run. They also do a brilliant cover of the Temptations' classic Just My Imagination, giving it a much rawer soul sound.

It is clear that this album was a response to Punk and Disco, the two styles prevalent from the mid 1970s to the end of that decade. Without a doubt the Stones pulled it off very well as the aforementioned Miss You was a huge hit and has stood the test of time very well: it's mid-tempo dance track with subdued vocals, lovely ooh-ooh choruses and a genuine nightlife feel.

The country song Far Away Eyes is equally mesmerising, as Mick sings in a real country accent about a truck driver on the way to visit his girlfriend while listening to a gospel station. Although it's a parody, I find it very charming and very "genuine" in another sense. It was the flipside of Miss You and probably contributed to this seven single reaching Number One.

The songs are uniformly good with great tunes and plenty of attitude. Some Girls may not be considered as one of their top 5 classics of all time but I find myself returning to it again and again. Some Girls is a solid body of work with many highlights.

First some historical background. By 1978 the established rock music scene was being assaulted on all sides, by Punk, Disco and New Wave. The Who, The Stones, Led Zeppelin and all the other mega groups were now considered Dinosaurs. So what was the Stones answer to all this? Some Girls. After sleepwalking through most of the 70's with albums like Goats Head Soup, The Stones were once again relevant with this chart topping release.
This album had a rawness and energy that the band hadn't had since the early sixties. This was probably due to the departure of the velvety guitar playing of Mick Taylor and the influence that punk may have had on the band. In terms of song selection, just to be safe, they cover all the bases. Miss You has a disco beat, Beast of Burden, Some Girls and Just My Imagination are pretty standard Rhythm and Blues, Far Away Eyes is country, Lies and respectable an attempt at Punk, When the Whip Comes Down and Before They Make Me Run standard Rock N Roll and finally a sort of New Wave song with Shattered.
Although stylistically they are all over the place, the way in which the songs are played and the instrumentation is pretty consistent. It sounds like they picked up their instruments set their volumes and distortion and then played ten songs straight through without making any sound adjustments from one song to the other.
I think Some Girls is great. This album was followed up with three more solid efforts, Emotional Rescue, Tattoo You and Undercover which along with Some Girls make up the last great phase of this band.
