THE ROLLING STONES...Some Girls  (1978)
Some Girls is the 14th studio album from the Rolling Stones, released 35 years ago in 1978.  It reached number 1 on the U.S. Billboard album charts and receives a 4 1/2 out of 5 stars, and therefore I highly recommend it.  This is my very favorite Stones album.  That could be because I was introduced to the Stones with this album.  Oh, sure, I had heard the "hits" while growing up but this was the first complete album I had ever heard all the way through and I remember loving it the very first time.  This record also encouraged me to hear the rest of their catalog, while also making me anticipate what would come in the future.  The Stones wrapped alot into this one...their brand of rock (Shattered, When The Whip Comes Down) mixed in with some countryish sounds (Far Away Eyes), some discoish sounds (Miss You, it was 1978), humor (Far Away Eyes), sexuality (Some Girls), and a R&B cover (Just My Imagination).  If you've never heard a Stones album all the way through (there might be 1 or 2 of you) introduce yourself to them with Some Girls
