About Some Girls [Super Deluxe Edition 2CD/DVD/7"]

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. With a stable line-up in place for the first time in several years, the album marked a return to basics for the Rolling Stones, unlike many of the prior albums there were few guest musicians. One notable contribution, however, does come from blues harmonica player Sugar Blue on "Miss You". Rebounding from the relative critical disappointment of prior album Black and Blue, Some Girls reached No. 1 on the Billboard 200 album chart, and became the band's top selling album in the United States, certified by the RIAA as having six million copies sold as of 2000. It was a major critical success, becoming the only Rolling Stones album to be nominated for a Grammy in the Album of the Year category. Many reviewers called it a classic return to form and their best album since 1972's Exile on Main St. Several hit singles emerged from the album which would become rock radio staples for decades, including "Beast of Burden" (US No. 8, Australia No. 12, top ten in several European markets), "Shattered" (US No. 31), "Respectable" (UK No. 23), highlighted by "Miss You", which reached No. 1 in the US and Canada, number three in the UK, and was a top ten hit in dozens of worldwide markets.
