Thursday 11pm: Feature LP: Rolling Stones – Some Girls (1978)

Some Girls is the 14th British and 16th American studio album by the Rolling Stones, released June 9, 1978 on Rolling Stones Records.

The album was the first album to feature guitarist Ronnie Wood as a full-time member; joining founder members Mick Jagger (vocals), Keith Richards (guitar), Bill Wyman (bass) and Charlie Watts (drums). Wood had contributed to some tracks on the Rolling Stones prior two albums, 1974’s It’s Only Rock ‘n Roll and 1975’s Black and Blue, and joined the band full time in 1976. With a stable line-up in place for the first time in several years, the album marked a return to basics for the Rolling Stones, unlike many of the prior albums there were few guest musicians. One notable contribution, however, does come from blues harmonica player Sugar Blue on “Miss You”.

Rebounding from the relative critical disappointment of their prior album, Some Girls reached number one on the Billboard 200 album chart, and became the band’s top selling album in the United States, certified by the RIAA as having six million copies sold as of 2000. It was a major critical success, becoming the only Rolling Stones album to be nominated for a Grammy in the Album of the Year category. Many reviewers called it a classic return to form and their best album since 1972’s Exile on Main St.

Several hit singles emerged from the album which would become rock radio staples for decades, including “Beast of Burden”, “Shattered”, “Respectable”, highlighted by “Miss You”, which reached number one in the US and Canada, number three in the UK, and was a top ten hit in dozens of worldwide markets.

1. “Miss You” 4:48
2. “When the Whip Comes Down” 4:20
3. “Just My Imagination (Running Away with Me)” 4:38
4. “Some Girls” 4:36
5. “Lies” 3:11
6. “Far Away Eyes” 4:24
7. “Respectable” 3:06
8. “Before They Make Me Run” 3:25

Thursday 10pm: Feature LP: Rolling Stones – Bridges to Babylon (1997)

Bridges to Babylon is the 21st British and 23rd American studio album by British rock band The Rolling Stones, released by Virgin Records on September 29,1997. It was their last full-length release of new songs until 2005’s A Bigger Bang. Released as a double album on vinyl and a single CD, the album was supported by the year-long worldwide Bridges to Babylon Tour that met with much success.

Unlike the prior several albums, which the production and songwriting team of vocalist Mick Jagger and guitarist Keith Richards had co-produced alongside a single producer, the group brought in an eclectic mix of superstar producers, including the Dust Brothers, Don Was, and Rob Fraboni among others. Similarly, a wide array of guest musicians appeared on each of the tracks alongside band members Jagger, Richards, Ronnie Wood (guitar) and Charlie Watts (drums). The sprawling album features a wide range of genres, including the Stones-standard blues rock, sample-laden hip hop and rap. As a decade earlier, the band was once again not on speaking terms during the recording of the album, with Jagger and Richards each recording their parts separately and rarely appeared in the studio together. They had, however, repaired their relationship well enough to embark on a wildly successful tour to support the album.

Though critics gave the album mixed reviews, it sold well, reaching platinum or gold status in many markets, and produced the world-wide top-40 single “Anybody Seen My Baby?”

1. “Flip the Switch” 3:28
2. “Anybody Seen My Baby?” 4:31
3. “Low Down” 4:26
4. “Already Over Me” 5:24
5. “Gunface” 5:02
6. “You Don’t Have to Mean It” 3:44
7. “Out of Control” 4:43
8. “Saint of Me” 5:15
9. “Might as Well Get Juiced” 5:23
10. “Always Suffering” 4:43
11. “Too Tight” 3:33
12. “Thief in the Night” 5:15
13. “How Can I Stop” 6:53
