Background: In the late 1970s, collectors were showing a lot of interest in both picture discs and colored vinyl, so record companies around the world issued a number of titles which were then-new as well as some older ones, on colored vinyl.
In 1978, Some Girls by the Rolling Stones was then their newest release, and their record company in Holland issued the album on bright orange vinyl.
While a number of Stones albums were issued on colored vinyl in the late 1970s in Holland, some are harder to find than others, and Some Girls is somewhat scarce.
Some Girls remains the band’s biggest-selling album ever, having sold some 6 million copies in the U.S. alone. The album also yielded three Top-40 singles – “Miss You,” “Shattered,” and “Beast of Burden.”
During the mid-’70s, the Rolling Stones remained massively popular, but their records suffered from Jagger’s fascination with celebrity and Keith’s worsening drug habit. By 1978, both punk and disco had swept the group off the front pages, and Some Girls was their fiery response to the younger generation. Opening with the disco-blues thump of “Miss You,” Some Girls is a tough, focused, and exciting record, full of more hooks and energy than any Stones record since Exile on Main St. … Some Girls may not have the back-street aggression of their ’60s records, or the majestic, drugged-out murk of their early-’70s work, but its brand of glitzy, decadent hard rock still makes it a definitive Stones album.
