The Rolling Stones, Some Girls (1978) [Reissue]
I’ve clarified the reissue because I already own this album, already told you I own this album too – Some Girls is one of my favourites by The Rolling Stones, always has been. I’ve owned the tape, the CD, and now two vinyl copies, this one doesn’t have the cut-outs of the original cover; my other copy is one of the originals. I bought this – I’m not sure why – I just wanted to have a nice, new version of this album and I’ve been playing it a lot recently. I guess it was processing Keith’s new solo album and thinking about how it’s better than a new Stones album probably would have been – that got me thinking again about how Some Girls really is the last truly great (no filler) Stones album. I say that as someone who owns all of their 80s output on vinyl and I grew up with 80s-Stones and really dig a lot of the stuff on all of those albums. But Some Girls has a pulse and a strut and it just has some really good songs on it. And a really strong cover in and around the originals.
