Rolling Stones Announce Deluxe ‘Some Girls’ Reissues
Thirty three years after the Rolling Stones originally released 'Some Girls' in 1978, Universal Music Group is re-packaging the ten songs in re-mastered Super-Deluxe, Deluxe and Digital editions. The project is set for a November release.
The album features three of the band's most famous songs in 'Miss You' (their last No. 1 hit in the U.S.), 'Shattered' and 'Beast of Burden.' It also cemented guitarist Ronnie Wood's place in the band.
Wood, who joined the Stones in 1975, got to show off his slide and pedal steel guitar skills, and also co-wrote the B-side to the 'Shattered' single, a song called 'Everything is Turning to Gold.'
This is the second Rolling Stones album in two years to be reissued. In 2010 'Exile on Main Street' was remastered and received a very positive reception.
"We did 'Exile,' we did a lot of different takes, a lot of different cuts that hadn't come out before," Mick Jagger told Spinner, "so we're doing the similar kind of thing with 'Some Girls.' I've just been doing them because a lot of them weren't complete, so I had to complete them, and then we're gonna mix those and put them out for Thanksgiving."
Rolling Stone reports the upgraded editions will include never before seen photographs and the seven inch single of 'Beast of Burden,' including its original banned cover art.
