O amigo e camarada, pelos dias que correm, anda muito "stoned"!

Outro Abraço! Sinceríssimo.

Evocador, este "Emotional Rescue" remete-me para quando tinha 10 anos, no calor do Verão, o Império das Rádios que ouvia, a sensualidade que perpassa está 'música' em que me embebia.

Este tema plantava-se-me no cérebro. Ouvia-o sem parar na minha memória musical.

Desde que o coloquei aqui, perdi a conta às vezes que a re-ouvi:

Is there nothing I can say
Nothing I can do
To change your mind
Im so in love with you
Youre too deep in
You cant get out
Youre just a poor girl in a rich mans house
Yeah, baby, Im crying over you

Dont you know promises were never made to keep?
Just like the night, dissolve in sleep
Ill be your savior, steadfast and true
Ill come to your emotional rescue
Ill come to your emotional rescue

Yeah, the other night, crying
Crying baby, yeah Im crying
Yeah Im like a child baby
Im like a child baby
Child yeah, Im like a child, like a child
Like a child

You think youre one of a special breed
You think that youre his pet pekinese
Ill be your savior, steadfast and true
Ill come to your emotional rescue
Ill come to your emotional rescue

I was dreaming last night
Last night I was dreaming
How youd be mine, but I was crying
Like a child, yeah, I was crying
Crying like a child
You will be mine, mine, mine, mine, mine, all mine
You could be mine, could be mine
Be mine, all mine

I come to you, so silent in the night
So stealthy, so animal quiet
Ill be your savior, steadfast and true
Ill come to your emotional rescue
Ill come to your emotional rescue

Yeah, you should be mine, mine, whew
Yes, you could be mine
Tonight and every night
I will be your knight in shining armour
Coming to your emotional rescue
You will be mine, you will be mine, all mine
You will be mine, you will be mine, all mine
I will be your knight in shining armour
Riding across the desert with a fine arab charger

Dez anos?
O amigo exagera, não?
Ou caiu na fonte da eterna juventude?
Ou, na volta, sou eu que estou entradote!

Recorded throughout 1979, first in Nassau, Bahamas, then Paris, with some end-of-year overdubbing in New York City, Emotional Rescue was the first Rolling Stones album recorded following Keith Richards' exoneration from a Toronto drugs charge that could have landed him in jail for years. Fresh from the revitalization of Some Girls, Richards and Mick Jagger led The Rolling Stones through dozens of new songs—some of which were held over for Tattoo You—picking only ten for Emotional Rescue.

While several of the tracks featured just the core band of Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts, Ronnie Wood and Bill Wyman, keyboardists Nicky Hopkins and band co-founder Ian Stewart, sax player Bobby Keys and harmonica player Sugar Blue joined The Rolling Stones on Emotional Rescue.

The album cover, designed by Peter Corriston, features a sombre selection of band photos which had been taken by a thermo camera, a device which measures heat emissions. The original release came wrapped in a huge colour poster featuring more thermo-shots of the band, the whole being wrapped in a plastic bag. The music video shot for "Emotional Rescue" also utilized thermo-shots of the band performing.

Released in June with the disco-infused hit title track as the lead single, Emotional Rescue was an immediate smash. The title track hit #3 on Billboard's Hot 100 chart. The album gave The Rolling Stones their first UK #1 album since 1973's Goats Head Soup and spent seven weeks atop the US charts. The follow-up single "She's So Cold" was a Top 30 hit while "Dance Pt. 1" reached #9 on Billboard's Dance chart. Richards' "All About You" would be the first of several album closers featuring his increasingly gravel-sounding voice on lead vocal.

The song "Claudine" was rumored to be a part of the original album, but didn't make the cut most likely due to the fear of litigation. The lyrics dealt with the light sentence (30 days in jail) singer-actress Claudine Longet received after she killed her live-in boyfriend, Olympian ski racer Vladimir "Spider" Sabich in their Aspen Colorado home. She had previously been married to musician Andy Williams. Some other songs left off the album would find their way onto the next album Tattoo You ("Black Limousine", "Neighbors" and "No Use in Crying"). While "Think I'm Going Mad" finally arrived as a B-side to "She Was Hot" in 1984. And two cover songs sung by Keith Richards ("We Had It All" and "Let's Go Steady") have yet to be officially released, but can be found on the bootleg "Static in the Attic" along with "Claudine".

In 1994, Emotional Rescue was remastered and reissued by Virgin Records, and again in 2009 by Universal Music.
