Product Description

BBC Review

In the second half of the 1970s, the group that had epitomised youthful rebellion for more than a decade discovered, somewhat to their surprise, that they were no more immune than anyone else to generational change.

When the Sex Pistols et al began deriding The Rolling Stones as Establishment and old, they, stung, responded by going back into the studio and knuckling down to an album that they knew had to be better than their recent underwhelming output. Or perhaps they were more motivated by the fact that this could be the last time they could record together, because they faced the prospect of disintegration over Keith Richards’ infamous 1977 Canadian bust, the theoretical maximum sentence for which was life.

Whatever the truth, Some Girls – released in June 1978 and their first full album with Ronnie Wood – was the best Stones album in yonks. The raised energy levels of tracks like When the Whip Comes Down, Lies and Respectable forcefully make the point that this ensemble were practising breakneck tempos when the punks were in short trousers. However, the Stones also demonstrate a musical palette absolutely beyond their three-chord detractors. Far Away Eyes is a fond mickey-take of country, Shattered a funky dissection of the irritants of big city life and the smash Miss You skilfully co-opts the slick grooves of disco.

Elsewhere, Keith’s vocal showcase Before They Make Me Run – a renunciation of his junkie life – evinces a reflectiveness and regret beyond the emotional vocabulary of musicians in their 20s. In fact – though Mick Jagger can’t resist stirring up some outrage with the lecherous, bluesy title-track – there is an overall sensitivity and vulnerability that had never before been part of the Stones’ make-up, whether it be the machismo-spurning of Miss You, the achingly sweet cover of Just My Imagination or the exquisitely lovelorn Beast of Burden. All this made for a staggeringly good ‘comeback’ that left many veteran Stones fans rather emotional.

The 12 outtakes on this 2011 reissue amount to a whole extra album. They're a mixture of blues that vary from generic to good, competent-to-classy cover versions and a few originals almost up to the quality of the weakest Some Girls tracks. Though the additions don't enhance the original album’s legend, nor do they diminish it any more than the fact that the band sagged once again into artistic complacency after its release.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not Quite How It's Supposed To Be 21 Nov 2011
Format:Audio CD
This is one of my favourite Stones albums but the record company seems determined to neutralise my continued enjoyment. The 2009 remasters of the post-Decca/London studio albums (from 1971's Sticky Fingers to date) have come in for some stick in some quarters & rightly so; the one-EQ-setting-suits-all-tracks approach to 'remastering' was a creative mistake which simply did not suit some titles, with Some Girls suffering the most. The original release didn't sound like it was recorded in a tin can but the 2009 version did with the contents compressed to a degrading degree, stripping the original of its dynamic range. What used to sound nice & sleazy was transformed into something shrill & dense. I was hoping that this 'deluxe' issue might feature a decent second attempt at the job but, alas, no: this package contains exactly the same 2009 remastered version with no discernible attempt to improve the faulty sound. This is disappointing, to say the least. Some Girls deserves so much better than this. What is truly frustrating, however, is that the same does not apply to the bonus disc of out-takes. The sound here is excellent from start to finish- I'm not about to complain on that score because the 12 extra tracks are well worth hearing if you're interested in a collection of would-be B-sides in fine quality sound. But is it not ABSURD that the out-takes sound so much better than the album proper? This is not quite how it's supposed to be, is it? If you think I'm being a tad tetchy here, compare this version of Some Girls to the 1990s remaster & you'll hear what I mean. The difference in tonal range is striking. Hell, under normal circumstances I'd be giving Some Girls a five-star rating but this version succeeds only in making it sound like a 3-star album & that just can't be right. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars Some Girls a very good album. 3 Jan 2012
By daveT
Format:Audio CD
Some Girls is very good. But concentrate on the bonus album. Its fantastic. Stones as they should be. Very raw, could be in a blues club. The bass and drums drive it along. Its not over produced. A good mix of tracks very good value. Stones note- make the next album like this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars words of burden 24 Nov 2011
Format:Vinyl
Well this has taken me back in time.... To when I owned this album (before throwing it out with the others when I sold my turntable) But now it is back as is a new turntable..... The only thing lacking on this fabulous album are the cut outs on the cover.

For once this is a great remaster. I don't feel that anything has been added. This is vinyl at its audible best..!

I also bought the cd set. Perhaps dissapointed that the extra 12 tracks are not included in the vinyl edition..!

4.0 out of 5 stars Better than a new Stones Album 23 Nov 2011
Format:Audio CD
I have not listened to the first disc, because I had the album already and cannot comment on what all the audiophiles are saying about this version in comparison with the previous version, however the bonus material I have listened to and it stands up really well. Don't get me wrong if I was talking to someone who had no Rolling Stone albums I would recommend a whole load of stuff before this, including Some Girls. If you really want to get into this band you clearly have to start at the beginning, but unfortunately all we have are the US versions of the early albums, which I have, but I have also reconstructed Rolling Stone (debut album) and Rolling Stone No. 2 on iTunes. The albums I would recommend for those who want to build a Stones collection are Beggars Banquet, Let It Bleed, Exile On Main Street (Remastered), Black And Blue, Goats Head Soup, It's Only Rock 'N' Roll, Tattoo You and the much under-rated Their Satanic Majesties Request but for Stones fans this is a welcome addition

5.0 out of 5 stars When the whip came down 9 Jun 2009
By Smitty Werbenjaegermanjensen (real name) TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The Stones really hit the mark with this one, great playing, great production and great songs-even if they are a bit below the belt. It has everything that I like about the Stones in bucketloads. Keith and Ronnie make the ancient art of weaving sound as effortless as breathing. They really work as one on this one. Ronnies slide, Faraway Eyes, and lead guitar work really stands out. The Stones, for me, peaked with this one, followed closely by Tattoo You. Everyone is giving it 110%, playing Lies would exhaust a lot of modern "rock" bands.

This album features a load of styles from the sly funky disco opener Miss You, through the smooth cover of Imagination, the rawk bluesy anthropological and educational(well not in the school sense) trawl through the wiles and ways of the worlds female population Some Girls, the punky and rocky Lies, the country hued sarcastic take on "gospel" radio Far Away Eyes, via others ending with the evocative description of the darker side of dwelling in New Yawk. Its all here! Magnificent degenerate rock music.

The remaster is once again a touch up in the detail on previous releases, better drums, better vocal separation, better guitar separation, better guitar crunch and better bass definition. Not as immediately apparent a difference as the Sticky Fingers and Its Only Rock and Roll remastering, but an improvement none the less.

Is it worth buying? If you are new to the Stones, definitely! If you have this on the Virgin release, yes if you want to hear every detail, no if you are just going to blast it on a portable.

There are folk out there who like to feed the music through a wave editor to find out what is going on, this review is based on listening to the music on a couple of different cd players.

Several classics. Would have given five stars but there are couple weaker songs. Still sounds good and not too dated 35 years later.

It is not as good as Let it Bleed, but it still is a remarkable dirty Rolling stones work. Keith plays in 5 chord tuning and Mick is in great raw energy.
