The Rolling Stones: Mick Jagger and Keith Richards on Some Girls

Alan Light,, November 2011

"THE IDEA WAS ten songs, very direct, not a lot of backing vocals or horns, no duets or guests, very straightforward," says Mick Jagger. "We wanted something quite structured and not sprawling, not just 'Do what you want,' like Exile. It was all recorded relatively quickly, in one place, and it holds together as one piece."

Total word count of piece: 1655
