Hello, today the 71st post of Goldy Rhox, classic pop rock. In the darklight a UK band first popular in Europe, the band quickly became successful in North America during the British Invasion of the mid 1960s. Having released 22 studio albums in the UK(24 in the US), nine live albums (ten in the US), and numerous compilations, their worldwide sales are estimated at more than 200 million albums. In 1971 they began a string of eight consecutive studio albums reaching number one in the United States. Their most recent album of entirely new material, was released in 2005. In 1989, the band were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and in 2004, they ranked number 4 in Rolling Stone magazine's 100 Greatest Artists of All Time.

Most of the albums i 'll post made many millions for the music industry and a lot of what i intend to post still gets repackaged and remastered decades later, squeezing the last drop of profit out of bands that for the most part have ceased to exist long ago, although sometimes they get lured out of the mothballs to do a big bucks gig or tour. Now i'm not as naive to post this kinda music for all to see and have deleted, these will be a black box posts, i'm sorry for those on limited bandwidth but for most of you a gamble will get you a quality rip don't like it, deleting is just 2 clicks...That said i will try to accommodate somewhat and produce some cryptic info on the artist and or album.

Todays mystery album is the 14th British and 16th American studio album by todays band. It peaked at #1 on the Billboard 200, and became one of the band's biggest-selling albums in the United States, and has been certified by the RIAA as having six million copies sold as of 2000. With the advent of punk rock, the band, among many of their musical contemporaries, were being targeted by some in the movement as cultural dinosaurs, compromising their standing. The singer felt invigorated by the provocations and was determined to answer them lyrically. It helped, however, that almost all the punks had, openly or not, idolised them in the 1960s and were heavily influenced by the band's rebellious records from that era.

The inspiration for the record was really based in New York and the ways of the town. I think that gave it an extra spur and hardness. And then, of course, there was the punk thing that had started in 1976. Punk and disco were going on at the same time, so it was quite an interesting period. New York and London, too. Paris—there was punk there. Lots of dance music. Paris and New York had all this Latin dance music, which was really quite wonderful. Much more interesting than the stuff that came afterward.

Important to the band's reinvigoration was the addition of Ronnie Wood to the line-up, as this was the first album recorded with him as a full member. His guitar playing style meshed with, and was similar to, that of Keith Richards. Wood's slide guitar playing would become one of the band's hallmarks, and his unconventional uses of the instrument are prominent here.

There was some controversy surrounded the lyrics to the title song, an extended musing on women of various nationalities and races. The line "Black girls just wanna get fucked all night" drew strong protests from various groups. The album cover for Some Girls was designed by Peter Corriston, who would design the next three album covers as well, with illustrations by Hubert Kretzschmar. An elaborate die-cut design, with colours varying on different sleeves, it featured the band in garish drag alongside select female celebrities and lingerie ads. In 2003 it was ranked number 269 on Rolling Stone magazine's list of The 500 Greatest Albums of All Time. It was re-issued on 21 November 2011 in a 2 CD Deluxe edition, including 12 previously unreleased songs from that era.
