Rod Stewart's 'Every Picture Tells a Story' and Rolling Stones' 'Some Girls'

Duration:
57 minutes
First broadcast:
Thursday 01 March 2012

Johnnie Walker looks at his favourite classic albums. This week it's Rod Stewart's third solo album Every Picture Tells A Story, released in 1971 and Some Girls by the Rolling Stones.

Rod persuaded his friends from the Faces to play on the album, according to the rather vague sleeve credits, along with great characters such as Danny Thompson, Madeline Bell and Long John Baldry. Highlights were Reason To Believe, Maggie May and Mandolin Wind.

Ronnie Wood, as well as writing Rod's title track, later took up a role in The Rolling Stones. In 1978 their 14th album, Some Girls, marked his first appearance as a full member. Guests on the record, which featured Beast of Burden, Respectable and Miss You, included another Face Ian McLagan, Don Was and John Fogerty.

The programme will feature highlights from the albums with comment and cultural history from Johnnie and broadcaster and critic David Hepworth alongside archive interviews with many of the key players.
