The Rolling Stones – It’s Only Rock ‘N’ Roll – Half Speed Master 180 Gram Vinyl Record
It’s Only Rock ‘n Roll is the 12th studio album by The Rolling Stones, released in 1974.
The album’s title track, It’s Only Rock ‘n Roll (But I Like It), became one of The Rolling Stones’ signature songs. The track features an iconic guitar riff and has become a classic rock anthem.
Other Notable Tracks are “Ain’t Too Proud to Beg”: A cover of The Temptations’ classic and “Time Waits for No One”: A slower, ballad-like track featuring a notable guitar solo by Mick Taylor.
The album was produced by The Glimmer Twins, a pseudonym for Mick Jagger and Keith Richards. The production also involved the input of longtime Rolling Stones collaborator, Jimmy Miller.
The album reflects the band’s continued exploration of rock and blues influences, but it also incorporates elements of funk and reggae.
The critical reception was mixed, with some praising the album’s energy and others noting a lack of direction. However, the title track has endured as a classic. Despite mixed critical reviews, the album was commercially successful, reaching high chart positions in various countries.
It’s Only Rock ‘n Roll is considered a transitional album for The Rolling Stones, marking a shift in their sound. Mick Taylor, who played guitar on the album, left the band shortly after its release, and Ronnie Wood later joined as his replacement.
While not as universally acclaimed as some of The Rolling Stones’ earlier or later albums, It’s Only Rock ‘n Roll captures a moment in the band’s evolving musical journey and includes tracks that have become staples of their live performances.
