I picked up Emotional Rescue along with Some Girls and Tattoo You from the newest Universal Music remasters series and was pleasantly surprised at how well the recent remastering enhances my enjoyment of this album. The remastering tops any previous CD version of this album by a wide mark and I don't even remember the vinyl version sounding this good. The Stones tried out a lot of echo effects on this album as well as instrumentation mixes that usually sounded cheesy and muffled. Now the mixes are crystal clear and the album emerges as a laid back but stylish effort by the Stones that deserves more notice than typically given it. The rockers are effortless and cocksure and the more experimental tracks such as the title cut shimmer with clever instrumentation. Emotional Rescue along with It's Only Rock and Roll, really benefitted from the new remastering by Universal Music. I really have high expectations for Exile on Main Street as well.

Released in 1980,"Emotional Rescue" was dismissed as a lazy,uninspired retread of "Some Girls" by rock critics.The public couldn't care less about their opinions-it topped the Billboard album chart for 7 weeks,and produced hits like the delightfully campy disco-ish title song,the aptly-titled funk number "Dance (Pt. 1)" and the stuttering rocker "She's So Cold".Other highlights include the reggae number "Send It To Me",the bluesy "Down In The Hole" and the uptempo rockers "Where The Boys Go" and "Summer Romance".It may not be a "classic" Stones album,but it's still a listenable,fun effort.The 2009 UMG remaster is a noticable improvement over the 1994 Virgin-the muddiness is lifted,and it sounds sharper,clearer and more lifelike this time around.

Emotional Rescue is basically a sequel to Some Girls and if it is not quite as good as that landmark, more in the same vein is not at all a bad thing. Song for song it is not as good as Tattoo You but probably a notch above Undercover and miles better than Steel Wheels, Voodoo Lounge or Bridges to Babylon.

1. Dance Pt.1 is a disco-rock song of its era with some funny Mick jive vocals. The kind of thing Mick probably felt compelled to create to impress his Studio 54 pals. Interestingly, the band resurrected this track for their Licks Tour club shows and it still sounds pretty good (just don't tell Keith he is playing disco).

2. Summer Romance is a fun rocking song. Sort of a throwback to a 50's-style rocker with a fast tempo echoing the punk rock of the time. Overall, very enjoyable.

3. Send It To Me: A not at all bad pop rock song with a bit of a groove to it. In the tradition of songs like Luxury that attempt Reggae, miss the mark, but end up enjoyable anyway.

4. Let Me Go: Okay, the version here is a fine if not too memorable pop rock song. However, for the 1981 tour the band goosed the tempo and really made this one come alive. See the Still Life live album for the definitive version of this song.

5. Indian Girl: I cannot defend this one. In my opinion, Indian Girl ties In Another Land from the SMR record for weirdest Stones song of all time. It is a lazy, sleepy ode to the female child of a mother / father team of Cuban guerrilla fighters battling somewhere in Angola. Huh? I had no idea Keith and Ronnie were so skilled in the art of Mariachi.

6. Where The Boys Go: A fast, punkish,rocker featuring faux cockney vocal stylings from a slumming Mick Jagger.

Emotional Rescue was originally released June 24, 1980, it went to #1 in both the UK & US. The album includes the single hits Emotional Rescue and She's So Cold. Most people know the music, so in my reviews I try to give you data on the sessions and interesting facts connected with the songs and the album. Here we go:
Interesting notes include:
.....the vinyl album was released with a large color poster of images taken of the Band with a thermographic camera that imaged the body heat instead of light.....a video was also done with thermographic cameras
.....the tracks on the album were recorded while Keith started his band The New Barbarians to fulfill his drug conviction sentence in Toronto by playing a benefit for the blind, which he did with Ron Wood and the rest of the Stones, and then did a tour (which made no money because the drug expenses were so high)....John Belushi was with the Band for most of the tour
.....Band members Ronnie Wood, Mick Taylor, and Ian McLagan all released albums (with accusations that their best work had gone into their solo efforts)
The sessions for Emotional Rescue were very productive with many unreleased songs. They started in Nassau and continued in Paris with overdub and final mixing at Electric Lady Studios in NYC during Nov & Dec of 1979 and in April 1980.
Jan 18 - Feb 12, 1979 at Compass Point Studios in Nassau
.....She's So Cold
.....All About You
Jun 10 - Aug 25 & Sep 12 - Oct 19, 1979 at Pathe Marconi/EMI Studios in Paris
.....Dance
.....Summer Romance

.....Let Me Go
