Half Speed ReMasters HiRes Re-Issue: Emotional Rescue is the 15th British (and 17th American) studio album by The Rolling Stones, originally released in 1980. It was 40 years ago Saturday (June 20th, 1980) that the Rolling Stones’ Emotional Rescue album was released. The set, which followed the 1978 chart-topping Some Girls collection, was recorded throughout 1978 and ’79 at Compass Point Studios in Nassau, Bahamas. The album marked the fourth straight set produced by Mick Jagger & Keith Richards under their joint moniker “The Glimmer Twins.”

Emotional Rescue, which was the Stones’ eighth U.S. chart-topper, hit Number One on July 26th, 1980, ending Billy Joel’s six-week run at the top spot with Glass Houses. Emotional Rescue spent seven weeks at Number One and spawned two hit singles – the title track, which peaked at Number Three – and “She’s So Cold,” which topped out at Number 26.

Three outtakes from the Emotional Rescue sessions made their way onto 1981’s Tattoo You album – “Hang Fire,” “Little T&A,” and “No Use in Crying” – with a fourth track, “Think I’m Going Mad,” eventually finding a home as the B-side to 1984’s “She Was Hot” single.

“Coasting on the success of Some Girls, the Stones offered more of the same on Emotional Rescue. Comprised of leftovers from the previous album’s sessions and hastily written new numbers, Emotional Rescue may consist mainly of filler, but it’s expertly written and performed filler. The Stones toss off throwaways like the reggae-fueled, mail-order bride anthem “Send It to Me” or rockers like “Summer Romance” and “Where the Boys Go” with an authority that makes the record a guilty pleasure, even if it’s clear that only two songs – the icy but sexy disco-rock of “Emotional Rescue” and the revamped Chuck Berry rocker “She’s So Cold” – come close to being classic Stones.” ( Stephen Thomas Erlewine, AMG)
