Some Girls is the 14th British and 16th American studio album by the Rolling Stones, released in 1978 on Rolling Stones Records. It was the first album to feature guitarist Ronnie Wood as a full-time member; joining founder members Mick Jagger (vocals), Keith Richards (guitar), Bill Wyman (bass) and Charlie Watts (drums). Wood had contributed to some tracks on the Rolling Stones prior two albums, 1974's It's Only Rock 'n Roll and 1976's Black and Blue, and joined the band full time in 1976
Rolling Stones Unearth Material for ‘Some Girls’ Reissue. The Some Girls sessions were famously productive – mostly just the five Stones and engineer Chris Kimsey holed up in a Paris studio cutting dozens of songs. Some of the leftovers landed on later albums – see Hang Fire or Black Limousine, both of which resurfaced on Tattoo You – while others were unfinished until now. The outtakes get refurbished with guitar overdubs and Mick’s new vocals. It’s the ultimate version of the album that invented the Stones we’ve known ever since: mean, vital, gloriously unrepentant.

The Rolling Stones had one heck of a decade in the '70s. They started with one of their all-time greats - 1971's 'Sticky Fingers' - and then ended it with another classic, 1978's 'Some Girls. The latter record helped save the band after a few years of rock-star excess nearly sank them. It's one of the group's very best records, a renewed blast of classic rock 'n' roll infused with country swagger and soulful sway. We break it all down, song by song, with Lyrics Uncovered: The Rolling Stones' 'Some Girls' Album. If the rest of 'Some Girls' was the Stones trying to make sense of the punk movement blowing up around them, 'Shattered,' the album's closing track, was the band embracing it. It doubles as Mick Jagger's blast at his adopted home of New York City: "You got rats on the West Side, bed bugs uptown, What a mess, this town's in tatters," he sings.
If Some Girls isn’t the best Rolling Stones album-and sure, it’s not-it’s surely the most fascinating in terms of the band’s history and development.
