Background: The Rolling Stones’ 1978 LP Some Girls is one of their best-selling albums ever, reaching #1 on the charts in both the U.S. and the UK. It’s also the album that featured their last #1 hit, “Miss You.”
The album featured a die-cut cover that included photos of both band members and famous celebrities. Shortly after the release of the album, the band was sued by the representatives of some of those famous people, forcing the record company to remove the images of everyone but the band members.
The words “cover under reconstruction” appeared where the images of Lucille Ball, Jackie Onassis and Marilyn Monroe had appeared in the earlier design.
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. Even though the Stones make disco their own, they never quite take punk on their own ground. Instead, their rockers sound harder and nastier than they have in years…. 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.
