This is NOT a hybrid SACD. Reissue features the high-fidelity SHM-SACD format - fully compatible with standard all SACD players, but it does not play on standard CD players.
The first of the band’s albums to top the charts on both sides of the Atlantic since Goats Head Soup, five years earlier, it also became the one that spent longest at the top of any Stones album during the previous sixteen years, eventually spending a year on the US album chart.
The biggest selling single on the album was “Emotional Rescue”, a song written in the main by Mick on the electric piano, which made number three in America and number nine in the UK. Recorded in the Bahamas, Paris and finished in New York City, it has tracks that date back to early 1978. The distinctive blue and white thermo-imaging photography on the cover was shot by Roy Adzak with its design, like that of Some Girls, by Peter Corriston.
