Here, three legendary Rolling Stones studio albums are presented as a vinyl bundle offer – Some Girls (1978), Emotional Rescue (1980) and Tattoo You (1981).

By 1976, the Rolling Stones’ popularity was in decline as the music industry was dominated by disco and newer rock bands. In addition, the punk rock movement was an emerging cultural force in the UK.

Rebounding from the relative critical disappointment of 1976’s Black and Blue, 1978’s Some Girls was a major critical success, with many reviewers calling it a classic return to form for the band and their best album since 1972’s Exile on Main St.. Considered one of the band’s finest records, Rolling Stone has included Some Girls in their lists of the 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.

Following the success of Some Girls, the Rolling Stones returned to the studio in early 1979 to start writing and recording its follow-up, Emotional Rescue. The recording sessions for the album were so productive that several tracks left off the album would form the core of the follow-up, 1981’s Tattoo You.


Rolling Stones – Some Girls (Half-Speed Remastered on 180 Gram Vinyl)

Released on 9 June 1978 Some Girls is the 14th British (and 16th American) studio album by the Rolling Stones.

By 1976, the Rolling Stones’ popularity was in decline as the music industry was dominated by disco and newer rock bands. In addition, the punk rock movement was an emerging cultural force in the UK. Due to legal troubles surrounding guitarist Keith Richards, Mick Jagger is generally regarded as the principal creative force behind Some Girls, with him taking influence by dance music, most notably disco, during the sessions. With recording taking place at Pathé Marconi Studios in Paris, the sessions were highly productive, resulting in numerous outtakes that would appear on subsequent albums.

It was the first album to feature guitarist Ronnie Wood as a full-time member; Wood had contributed to some tracks on the band’s prior two albums, It’s Only Rock ‘n Roll (1974) and Black and Blue (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 and did not feature many guest musicians, unlike many of their prior albums.

Rebounding from the relative critical disappointment of Black and Blue, Some Girls was a major critical success, with many reviewers calling it a classic return to form for the band and their best album since 1972’s Exile on Main St.

This LP is remastered and cut at revelatory half-speed at Abbey Road Studios from vinyl specific original tape transfers designed to get the very best possible sound from the format.

Rolling Stones – Tattoo You (Half-Speed Remastered on 180g Vinyl)

Released on 24 August 1981 Tattoo You is the 16th British (and 18th American) studio album by the Rolling Stones. The album is mostly composed of studio outtakes recorded during the 1970s, and contains one of the band’s most well-known songs, Start Me Up, which hit No. 2 on the US Billboard singles charts.

A combination of touring obligations and personal feuding between band members made it difficult to arrange dedicated recording sessions for the band’s follow-up to 1980’s Emotional Rescue. As a result, the band’s production team combed through unused recordings from prior sessions, some dating back almost a decade. While a few of the songs were used essentially as-is in their original form, most of these earlier recordings were not complete, consisting of song fragments requiring much work. Studio time was booked throughout 1980 and 1981 and band members came in when available to finish off the tracks.

The credited members of the Rolling Stones for the album were vocalist Mick Jagger, guitarists Keith Richards and Ronnie Wood, bassist Bill Wyman, and drummer Charlie Watts, though one track features former Stones guitarist Mick Taylor. Keyboardists Nicky Hopkins, Billy Preston, and Ian Stewart also appear on the album.

The album proved to be both a critical and commercial success upon release, reaching the top of the US Billboard pop chart. It was also the final Rolling Stones album to reach the top position of the US charts, thus concluding the band’s string of No. 1 albums there, dating back to 1971’s Sticky Fingers.

This LP is remastered and cut at revelatory half-speed at Abbey Road Studios from vinyl specific original tape transfers designed to get the very best possible sound from the format.
