On July 26th 1980 the Rolling Stones started a seven week run at No.1 on the US album chart with Emotional Rescue, the group’s eighth US No.1 album.
It provided a timely present for Mick Jagger who celebrated his 37th birthday on the very same day!
Emotional Rescue was the first Rolling Stones album recorded following Keith Richards’ exoneration from a Toronto drugs charge that could have landed him in jail for years.
It wasn’t just in America that the album was a huge success. It topped the charts in several countries, including Canada and the UK, and produced hit singles with the title track and She’s So Cold.
Tracks from the sessions to record the album that didn’t make the cut would resurface on their next release, Tattoo You, as the Stones continued what is now seen as their mid-career success.
Enjoy these and many other great Stones tracks on their dedicated radio station.
