The Rolling Stones
1980: Virgin 7243-8-39523-2-8
As is probably the case with others who have loved certain Stones tracks without ever getting into the Stones overall, I have this album because of Emotional Rescue and Shes So Cold. I get a small kick out of Where The Boys Go, but other than those three tracks this album leaves me feeling almost clammy.
Thankfully the two tracks I got this album for still justify not only the expense but also the ownership. Theyre completely different beasts, impossible to compare, so I just enjoy them for what they are: tidy little rock gems. Emotional Rescue is the more thought-provokingly tuneful, while Shes So Cold is just tasty rock in a compact form that grooves along quite agreeably.
