It's Only Rock 'n Roll

It's Only Rock 'n Roll
1974's It's Only Rock 'n Roll

One of the perks of working on a (coming soon) Internet radio station is that you have to listen to a lot of music.  In our case some of that music is old classic rock.  So it was that I found myself perusing a few classic albums looking for additional songs to add to the current library of over eight thousand tunes.

I started with the first Lynyrd Skynyrd album, "Pronounced," then moved onto "Jailbreak" by Thin Lizzy, and lastly found myself grooving to "It's Only Rock 'n Roll" by the Rolling Stones.  I still remember when that was released -  eighth grade for me.  That disc came out during a run of great Stones albums during the seventies that began with 1971's  "Sticky Fingers,"included "Exile on Main Street," and culminated with "Some Girls" in 1978.

We'll probably include every single song on that album in the stations playlist.

Side 1:

If You Can't Rock Me
Ain't Too Proud To Beg  [a Motown cover]
It's Only Rock 'n Roll (But I Like It)
'Till The Next Goodbye
Time Waits For No One

Side 2:

Luxury
Dance Little Sister
If You Really Want To be My Friend
Short and Curlies
Fingerprint File  [probably the most under appreciated song on the album]

 

so here's a video from LA in 1975.
