A Japanese bootleg of a bootleg featuring some very tinny recordings of the Stones plowing through the usual rock & roll covers, some of which made it onto their early LPs. Taken from BBC broadcasts circa 1963-1964, there are no flubs, just straight-ahead takes. And while nothing really surpasses the studio versions, nothing falls apart.
The album stayed at N. in the UK for twelve weeks during 1964, and is a cornerstone of their success. The photo for the album cover was shot by Nicholas Wright. The Rolling Stones Q&A.
Listen to the Rolling Stones Perform 'Fool to Cry'. At first, the plan was to rebound quickly and put out a new album. The Stones returned at the end of 1974 to the same Munich studio where It's Only Rock 'N Roll was recorded to lay down some tracks. At the start of 1975, they were in the Netherlands recording more. But they were still reeling from Mick Taylor's abrupt departure in December 1974 and hadn't decided on a replacement guitarist yet (Jeff Beck, Peter Frampton and Steve Marriott were all considered; the job eventually went to Ronnie Wood).
Few Stones tracks are as atmospheric as this gauzy, left-field gem; Jagger strums an electric guitar while woozily crooning lines like "Nothing will harm you/Nothing will stand in your way," over a restrained, bare-bones accompaniment. This fever dream set to music inspired multiple EDM remixes 30 years later. Why did the Stones call this album Some Girls? "Because we couldn't remember their fucking names," as Richards put it at the time. The title song remains one of the Stones' funniest moments, as Jagger sings about the hard work of womanizing, pursued by groupies who take his money and take his clothes.
