- This amazing copy of the Stones’ 1980 release boasts Shootout Winning Triple Plus (A+++) sound throughout
- Dance (Pt. 1) and She’s So Cold sound out of this world on this copy, and the title track, Emotional Rescue, is every bit as good
- An underrated Stones album — too good to call a guilty pleasure — and very well-recorded by Chris Kimsey
- Maybe it’s good because “Mick Jagger sounds like he’s having a great time…”
This amazing pressing delivers the kind of killer sound you surely did not expect from this underrated Stones album.
We had a great time shooting this one out — we had forgotten how good the music was and were pleasantly surprised by how good the best copies can sound. It’s tough to get great Stones sound, I’m sure most of you know that, but there’s lots of it here and a bunch of good songs. She’s So Cold, Summer Romance, Dance, the title track… not a bad line-up, and probably the last great album these guys put out.
As you might expect, we heard lots of dry, grainy, thinned-out sound on the copies that didn’t make the cut. When you get a Hot copy with a punchy bottom end and some richness, it’s an entirely different story. It lest a song like the leadoff track Dance come to life, giving you bigger, livelier, fuller sound than you ever expected to hear on this record. (more…)
