Great Moments in Vinyl plays tribute to The Rolling Stones

The Rolling Stones may have made their debut in the ‘60s, but it was in the ‘70s that they came into their own. The band launched into that brand new decade with the bold proclamation that they were The Greatest Rock and Roll Band in the World, and then proceeded to confirm it with their first studio album of the ‘70s, Sticky Fingers.
As the ‘70s wore on, the Stones fell from critical grace and seemed to lose their distinctive bite. By the end of that era, the emergence of punk rock and the popularity of disco made many of rock music’s pioneers seem old and in the way. Not so the Stones. With their final studio album of the decade, Some Girls, they proved they still had plenty of reasons for us music fans to sit up and take notice.
