I didn’t know the Rolling Stones. I won this record in a local fair, near my school. Because of that, I kept it in my collection, trying to listen to it, but not liking it very much. I’m still not really a fan of Jagger and his friends. You might say this is the wrong album, but I listened to others in the meantime of course. Still not my thing.
There is something weird with the date of acquisition on this record. I won it in 1985, but the record came out in 1986 according to Discogs… Was I so far ahead of the curve?
The only song I liked, and still like is “Too rude”. It is not sung by Mick Jagger. I just don’t like his voice I guess. https://www.songfacts.com/facts/the-rolling-stones/too-rude mentions it was after a song by a Jamaican singer called Half Pint, so it wasn’t even original Rolling Stones. Judging from the story on Songfacts he didn’t get any money from it.
There is quite a nice inner sleeve for this record.
This one comes in at the inner sleeve competition on a whopping number 1. Of course, that all can still change.
