Emotional Rescue

An album by The Rolling Stones

< read all 2 reviews

Bar-night rock with Sixties flavour

Saved by "Some Girls"--how's that for ironic, considering all the charges of misogyny filed against Jagger since the mid-Sixties--and basking in their newfound salvation. No T.K.O.'s or suckerpunches. Just ten slaps custom-made to nuke apathy. The songs have direction and a deliciously Sixties throwaway feel, underscored, overscored, and forescored by whalloping bass. It doesn't rank with "Let It Bleed," or "Sticky Fingers," or for that matter "Some Girls," but it doesn't have to. Bottom line: darn good rock 'n' roll.

This was one of the first Stones albums I ever bought.

About this album


First issued in 1980, Emotional Rescue was a transatlantic chart-topper and its infectious title track made the best-sellers list too. Recorded in Nassau in the Bahamas, in Paris and in New York, and produced by Jagger and Richards under their Glimmer Twins guise, it also contains the classic rocker She's So Cold, which went Top 40 in both the UK and the US, and Dance (Pt 1), another groove-oriented track, which was a club hit in the States. The bittersweet ballad All About You features one of Richards' most affecting vocal performances as well as Bobby Keys' distinctive saxophone. Corriston used a thermo camera to create the album's unusual cover, and drew on the same technique for the Emotional Rescue video.
