A chart-topping album on both sides of the Atlantic, the Rolling Stones' Emotional Rescue hit stores in 1980. Following on from the acclaimed Some Girls, and with its eponymous track proving a dancefloor hit, this more disco-orientated album further cemented the Rolling Stones' position at the top of the musical pile. This 2009 re-mastered CD finds it in its best-ever shape.
The striking sleeve for Emotional Rescue saw the band embracing new-fangled technology, being shot by thermo camera to produce blurry black and white images based on heat emissions. The video for the eponymous single centred round the same theme, which was the brainchild of designer-par-excellence Peter Corriston.
As well as working with the likes of Andy Warhol, Led Zeppelin and Debbie Harry, he also designed the covers for the Stones albums Some Girls and Undercover, as well as bagging a Grammy Award for his sleeve for Tattoo You.
The Rolling Stones are named the most successful band of all time in the Guinness Book of Records
