Now Playing… With ‘SOME GIRLS’ From THE STONES – Released 45 Years Ago Today

What’s on the stereo?

9 June 2023

45 years ago today, on 9 June 1978. It topped the US charts
and peaked at #2 in the UK.

It was the first with Ronnie Wood as a full-time Stone.

The album’s cover was designed by Grammy award-winning graphic designer Peter Corriston. Itd featured The Stones in garish drag alongside select female celebrities and lingerie ads. The cover immediately ran into trouble when Lucille Ball, Farrah Fawcett, Liza Minnelli (representing her mother Judy Garland), Raquel Welch, and the estate of Marilyn Monroe threatened legal action.

The album was quickly reissued with a redesigned cover that removed all the celebrities, whether they had complained or not. The celebrity images were replaced with black and punk-style garish colours with the phrase “Pardon our appearance – cover under reconstruction”. The only celebrity whose face was not removed was ex-Beatle George Harrison.

Okay, enough info.
Let’s play the LP.

An watch afterward the singles’ videos.



Now Playing – The Final BEATLES Album ‘LET IT BE’ That Topped The UK Charts Tis Day In 1970

Like for millions of people on this planet, THE BEATLES are also for me, the best band ever. Their virtuoso talent and innovatory skills made them turn pop music into something that elevated pop-ular music to an ingenious, very accessible form of entertaining art all over the world.

Their final LP LET IT BE was/still is, underrated. You read more about the difficult recording sessions and the animosity among the Fab Four than about the series of pearls such as: Across The Universe, Get Back, Long And Winding Road, I’ve Got A Feeling and For Blue. It’s quite simple: it’s one of their best albums in my Beatles book.

53 years ago today – 23 May in 1970 – the longplayer
started a 3-week run on top of the UK Charts.

Now Playing… WAXAHATCHEE And Her Enchanting 10-Year Old Album ‘CERULEAN SALT’

5 March 2023

WAXAHATCHEE is the moniker of the wonderful Alabama songstress Katie Crutchfield
who released her 2nd praised album 10 years ago today, on 5 March 2023.

Pitchfork said: “Cerulean Salt, Crutchfield’s new album, is going to be heard. But from
its opening moments, you get the sense that she’s ready for it, the newfound assurance, steadiness, and clarity of her voice immediately obvious… It’s that blazingly honest, hyper-personal quality that places Cerulean Salt in the tradition of Elliott Smith, early Cat Power,
or Liz Phair’s free-flowing Girlysound tapes– the work of a songwriter skilled enough to make introspection seem not self-centered, but generous.”
Score: 8.5/10.
