    Default Rolling Stones release Some Girls on this date in 1978

    I had just moved to California to go to grad school at UC-Irvine, but wanted to get residency first so I could pay in-state tuition so I was living all over the place as cheap as possible. I was driving somewhere on Hwy. 5 and listening to the radio when I heard "Shattered." It really blew me away. It was a cool punk song that signalled to me the Stones were not over the hill. The same way hearing "Things Have Changed" made me realize Dylan was not a worn out star when I first heard that on the radio in the 90's. Some Girls was a real good album, had the clever "Far Away Eyes" and "Beast of Burden." I was still disappointed that Mick Taylor had quit the band, tho. The only real lead guitarist the Stones ever had, and the best musician they ever had as well, IMHO. First full album with Ron Wood.

    A pretty good record.
    I concur with your assessment of Shattered (still do - great song).
    I like Faraway Eyes, too! :-)

    The song Some Girls is a bit too stereotypically "Rolling Stones" for me (FWIW).
    all the best,

    If you think they weren't over-the-hill by the 70's, you're going to love their 60's stuff.

    Ha. Ruby Tuesday/Let's Spend The Night Together was one of my early 45's. Still remember the first time I heard Satisfaction on the radio.

    Last great Stones LP. I agree when they lost Mick Taylor it was downhill from there, although Ron Wood did fine but was no Mick Taylor.

    Yes, the last 'buyable' Stones LP. The last time I saw them live was in 2000 and it was a terrible show - their timing, key and general cohesion was off.

    I couldn't see buying anything beyond Let it Bleed.

    Ruby Tuesday. In a million years I'll never figure how and why that became a hit, as I myself go for their much more sedate material. Numbers like "19th Nervous Breakdown" and "Get Off of My Cloud".

    Mick Taylor can play his scrote off, but let's face it, bringing him into The Stones was like taking a Cub Scout to a teamster sponsored cockfight.

    They may have sold a ton of records in the 70's, but the creative hayday was the 60's.

    George, remember when radio stations banned "Let's Spend The Night Together"? I agree with you their best stuff was in the '60's. But my favorite Stones album is still Sticky Fingers. That album is made by Mick Taylor's guitar, plain and simple. I don't know how Mick Taylor made it through the excesses of the Exile period. I never really warmed up to that album, although it was my best friend's favorite album. But it seems Mick Taylor was soon left with the choice to quit the band or die. Some Girls was still a good album. After that, much filler. With the exception of the second side of Tattoo You, which has that good sedate material you're talking about.

    I find the use of the term sedate to describe (any) Rolling Stones' tunes somewhat ironically amusing... of course, that said, they all did do plenty of sedatives over the years :-)

    Come to think of it, isn't there a Rolling Stones song called Too Much Seconal?
    all the best,

    You amuse easily. Ruby Tuesday, As Tears Go By, Lady Jane. Not big sellers here.

    I could listen to Let It Bleed, Exile on Main Street, Beggar's Banquet, Sticky Fingers, and Goat's Head Soup all day long.
    Good music, a good source, and good power can make SDA's sing. Tubes make them dance.

    I was never a big Rolling Stones fan but in recent years I've developed ever more appreciation for them.
    At this late date (and FWIW) I think my favorite RS song is Let it Bleed... my long-time favorite is/was, however, You Can't Always Get What You Want... hmm, both from that "last great Rolling Stones Album" by George's estimation.
    all the best,

    Tell you one thing for sure. If you want an entertaining read, hit up Keith Richards' autobiography!

    Seriously, you won't be able to put the thing down.

    Paint It Black is okay. I think Charlie's moment in the sun was "19th Nervous Breakdown". He worked his ass off on that one, more than he did before or since.

    I like the let it Bleed album cause it's the one with "Gimme Shelter" on it, the last good "dark" song from those guys. The "Between the Buttons" album has been a long time favorite, with a lot of good oddball stuff that gets played here a bit.

    I don't like "You Can't Always Get..." To me, a Stones song should not have a heavenly chorus involved.

    ... you're thinking more of a demonic chorus a la "Bohemian Rhapsody"would be suitablyapropos for the Stone Rollers, eh?
    I like the French horn at the beginning of "You Can't Always Get..." (yeah, but we own two cats, too... I know, I am a lost cause).

    EDIT: "19th Nervous Breakdown" is a terrific song (as is "Get Off of my Cloud")...
    all the best,
