Some Puerto Rican Girls Just Dyin' to Meet You

Like most folks  my  Stones collection is centred around their four great albums from 1968 to 1972 - Beggar's Banquet, Let it Bleed, Sticky Fingers and Exile on Main Street.
However in my mid to late teens I was pally with a guy who was pretty much obsessed with the Stones and I grew to be quite fond of the likes of Black and Blue, Some Girls, Emotional Rescue and Tattoo You.

I recently acquired a copy of Some Girls and have been happily reliving this period.
Miss You has something of  a disco feel to it.
Far Away Eyes on the other hand is just a great country song.
I must get round to re-exploring those others mentioned above.

You will forgive me if I don't mention the band's name on the attached tracks for obvious reasons.

Miss You

Far Away Eyes

  1. two very good songs from what I think is their last half-decent album. Tattoo You is almost a cliched 1970s Stones album and Emotional Rescue is worse. But today's choice - good!
