Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Recorded in Paris in '77 and '78, the Rolling Stones' Some Girls album is probably the last of their albums that can be considered a bona fide groundbreaking classic...unlike the author, I feel that Tattoo You (except for the track, Neighbours, which I tend to skip) is equally NYC-centric, and equally great, and I also have a lot of love for the underrated Undercover album (also NYC-centric). I remember the excitement surrounding Some Girls when it was released in 1978, and the author captures the mood of the times - and of NYC (where Mick and Keith had/have apartments) and how it inspired much of the Some Girls album. The book has a few minor inaccuracies, and, perhaps the author makes too much of the NYC connection to the album, but this book is a really fun read aimed especially at those who are just discovering the Stones and/or Some Girls; however, I have loved the Stones for 30 years, and I found this book useful and enjoyable. Those who have studied the Some Girls sessions and have many of the unreleased tracks may find this book a bit redundant, but, in my opinion, just about any book on The Stones is worth reading, and this book covers a time and place that has not been examined as thoroughly, in writing, as, say, '69 or '72. It's great to revisit this classic album again and again, and this book is a worthwhile entry in the 33 1 3 series.

The book is great - but what on earth happened to the copy editing process!? Within the first 30 pages I've seen "base guitar," "hear" instead of "here," etc. TONS of typos and weirdo autocorrect-style mistakes.

Each book in this fine series has a different approach. I enjoyed this author's approach. Having grown up in NY in the late seventies and being a lover of the Stones' _Some Girls_, this book was a perfect fit.

Charlie Watts did not play drums on "It's Only Rock and Roll"(see "Ronnie" by Ronnie Wood, p.99.) I buy books to learn new things, not correct the authors mistakes. Looks like I won't be buying this one.
