Tuesday 9/20/22 11pm ET: Feature LP: Rolling Stones – Beggars Banquet (1968)

Beggars Banquet is the 7th British and 9th American studio album by the English rock band the Rolling Stones, released on December 6, 1968 by Decca Records in the United Kingdom and London Records in the United States. It was the first Rolling Stones album produced by Jimmy Miller, whose production work formed a key aspect of the group’s sound throughout the late 1960s and early 1970s.

Brian Jones, the band’s founder and early leader, had become increasingly unreliable in the studio due to his drug use, and it was the last Rolling Stones album to be released during his lifetime, though he also contributed to two songs on their next album Let It Bleed, which was released after his death. (Jones did, however, contribute to the group’s hit song “Jumpin’ Jack Flash”, which was part of the same sessions, and released in May 1968.) Nearly all rhythm and lead guitar parts were recorded by Keith Richards, the Rolling Stones’ other guitarist and the primary songwriting partner of their lead singer Mick Jagger; together the two wrote all but one of the tracks on the album. Rounding out the instrumentation were bassist Bill Wyman and drummer Charlie Watts, though all members contributed on a variety of instruments. As with most albums of the period, frequent collaborator Nicky Hopkins played piano on many of the tracks.

Beggars Banquet marked a change in direction for the band following the psychedelic pop of their previous two albums, Between the Buttons and Their Satanic Majesties Request. Styles such as roots rock and a return to the blues rock sound that had marked early Stones recordings dominate the record, and the album is among the most instrumentally experimental of the band’s career, as they use Latin beats and instruments like the claves alongside South Asian sounds from the tanpura, tabla and shehnai, and African music-influenced conga rhythms.

Beggars Banquet was a top-ten album in many markets, including a number 5 position in the US—where it has been certified platinum—and a number 3 position in the band’s native UK. It received a highly favorable response from music critics, who deemed it a return to the band’s best sound. While the album lacked a “hit single” at the time of its release, songs such as “Sympathy for the Devil” and “Street Fighting Man” became rock radio staples for decades to come. One of their most acclaimed albums, it is considered the beginning of the band’s enduring reputation as the “Greatest Rock ‘n’ Roll Band in the World”. The album has appeared on many lists of the greatest albums of all time, including by Rolling Stone, and it was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame in 1999.

Wednesday 6/15/22 10pm ET: Feature LP: Rolling Stones – Some Girls (1978)

Some Girls is the 14th British and 16th American studio album by the English rock band the Rolling Stones, released on June 9, 1978 on Rolling Stones Records. By 1976, the Rolling Stones’ popularity was in decline as the music industry was dominated by disco and newer rock bands. In addition, the punk rock movement was an emerging cultural force in the UK. The band had also failed to produce a critically acclaimed album since 1972’s Exile on Main St. Mick Jagger is generally regarded as the principal creative force behind Some Girls, with him taking influence by dance music, most notably disco, during the recording of the album.

It was the first album to feature guitarist Ronnie Wood as a full-time member; Wood had contributed to some tracks on the band’s prior two albums, It’s Only Rock ‘n Roll (1974) and Black and Blue (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 and did not feature many guest musicians, unlike many of their prior albums. Notable contributions to the album, however, come from blues harmonica player Sugar Blue on “Miss You” and “Some Girls”.

Rebounding from the relative critical disappointment of Black and Blue, Some Girls reached No. 2 on the UK Albums Chart and No. 1 on the US Billboard 200. It became the band’s top-selling album in the US, having been certified by the RIAA for selling six million copies sold by 2000. It was a major critical success, becoming the only Rolling Stones album to be nominated for a Grammy Award in the Album of the Year category. Many reviewers called it a classic return to form and their best album since Exile on Main St.

Several hit singles emerged from the album which would become rock radio staples for decades, including “Beast of Burden” (US No. 8), “Shattered” (US No. 31), “Respectable” (UK No. 23), highlighted by “Miss You”, which reached No. 1 in the US and No. 3 in the UK. In 2003, Some Girls was included in Rolling Stone’s list of the 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.

Monday 5/16/22 8am ET: Feature LP: Rolling Stones – Out of Our Heads (1965)

Out of Our Heads is the 3rd British and 4th American studio album by the English rock band the Rolling Stones, released in two editions with different covers and track listings. In the US, London Records released it on July 30, 1965, while Decca Records released its UK edition on September 24, 1965.

As with the prior two albums, it consists mostly of covers of American blues, soul and rhythm and blues songs, though the group wrote some of their own material for this album (4 out of the 12 tracks on the UK version, and 6 out of 12 for the USA version). The American version contains “(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction”, which would be the band’s first number one US hit, and would go on to top the charts in 10 other countries, including the band’s native UK, and being ranked as the second greatest song of all time by Rolling Stone.

Out of Our Heads became the group’s first number one on the American Billboard 200 album chart; in the UK it charted at number two.

Thursday 2/17/22 10pm ET: Feature LP: Rolling Stones – Exile On Main St. (1972)

Exile on Main St. is the 10th British and 12th American studio album by the English rock band the Rolling Stones, released on May 12, 1972 by Rolling Stones Records. Recording began in 1969 in England during sessions for Sticky Fingers and continued in mid-1971 at a rented villa in the South of France named Nellcôte while the band lived abroad as tax exiles. A collage of various images, the album’s artwork, according to frontman Mick Jagger, reflects the Rolling Stones as “runaway outlaws using the blues as its weapon against the world”, showcasing “feeling of joyful isolation, grinning in the face of a scary and unknown future”.

Working with a mobile recording studio, the loose and unorganised Nellcôte sessions went on for hours into the night, with personnel varying greatly from day to day. The recording was completed with overdub sessions at Los Angeles’s Sunset Sound and included additional musicians such as pianist Nicky Hopkins, saxophonist Bobby Keys, drummer Jimmy Miller and horn player Jim Price. The resulting music was rooted in blues, rock and roll, swing, country and gospel, while the lyrics explored themes related to hedonism, sex and time. These newly recorded tracks were combined with some tracks recorded at earlier sessions from 1969–1971, resulting in the Stones’ first double album.

Exile on Main St. contains frequently performed concert staples and was a number one charting album in six countries, including the UK, US, and Canada. It spawned the hit songs “Happy”, a rare song that featured Keith Richards on lead vocals, country music ballad “Sweet Virginia”, and worldwide top-ten hit “Tumbling Dice”. A remastered and expanded version of the album was released in 2010 featuring a bonus disc with 10 new tracks. Unusual for a re-release, it also charted highly at the time of its release, reaching number one in the UK and number two in the US.

The album was originally met with mixed reviews before a positive critical reassessment during the 1970s. It has since been viewed by many critics as the Rolling Stones’ best work and a culmination of a string of the band’s highly critically successful albums, following the releases of Beggars Banquet (1968), Let It Bleed (1969) and Sticky Fingers (1971). Rolling Stone magazine has ranked Exile on Main St. number 7 on its list of the 500 Greatest Albums of All Time in 2003 and 2012, and dropping to number 14 in the 2020 edition, the highest Rolling Stones album ranked on the list. In 2012, the album was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame, the band’s fourth album to be inducted.

Tuesday 2/1/22 8pm ET: Feature LP: Rolling Stones – Rewind (1971 – 1984) (1984)

Rewind (1971–1984) is a compilation album by English rock band The Rolling Stones, released July 2, 1984. Coming only three years after Sucking in the Seventies, the album was primarily compiled to mark the end of the band’s alliance with Warner Music (in North America) and EMI (all other territories), both of whom were the distributors of Rolling Stones Records. It is the second Rolling Stones album to include a lyric sheet (after 1978’s Some Girls).

For the first time since 1969’s Through the Past, Darkly (Big Hits Vol. 2), the UK and US editions of Rewind (1971–1984) would each feature different track listings, reflecting the individual tastes of both territories. The American CD version featured the US top 20 hits from 1971-1983, with the exception of “Ain’t Too Proud to Beg”.

Released in the summer of 1984, Rewind (1971–1984) was not as successful as previous compilations, reaching No. 23 in the UK and No. 86 in the US, though it went gold in the latter. The album marked the first official Rolling Stones CD release in the United States and featured the additional tracks “It’s Only Rock’n Roll (But I Like It)” and “Doo Doo Doo Doo Doo (Heartbreaker)”. The compilation was accompanied by a companion home video release, Video Rewind, released November 14, 1984.

With later compilations Jump Back: The Best of The Rolling Stones (1993) and Forty Licks (2002) superseding it, Rewind (1971–1984) eventually fell out of print.
