Outlaws in their youth, by 1978, The Rolling Stones were men in their mid thirties, who had been outflanked by the punk movement. The Clash's slogan had been "No Beatles, Elvis, Stones in 1977." The Stones responded with one of their final great records, Some Girls. While parts of Goats Head Soup and Black and Blue were focused on New York City, this album was a late '70s statement of NYC funk. Guitarist Ronnie Wood was firmly within the ranks and he and Richards drove the Stones toward their earlier lofty heights. "Shattered" rocked intensely, while "Miss you" added grit to a disco beat. They even sparked a little bit of controversy among the politically correct crowd when one of the lyrics on the title track suggested that black women wanted to have sex all night (only black women? Isn't that sentiment universal?). The recording resulted in international hits for the group and stopped their first precipitous decline.
