History

Following up on the relatively mellow Goats Head Soup, The Rolling Stones aimed to create a more energized album. While the album was popular in its release, it did not jolt the band out of their perceived lean period, one which would not end until the revitalization of 1978's Some Girls. It's Only Rock'n Roll is also notable for being guitartist Mick Taylor's last album with The Rolling Stones, as he decided to leave the group in December 1974 to work with former Cream bassist Jack Bruce.

With work having started on the project, following The Rolling Stones' 1973 European Tour, that November in Munich, Germany, further new songs and overdubs would be effected there in the spring months of 1974. Alongside the usual outside contributors, Ray Cooper would act as percussionist for the album. Ron Wood, a longtime acquaintance of the band, began to get closer to The Rolling Stones during these sessions after he invited Mick Taylor (his pal since they were teenagers) to play on his debut album I've Got My Own Album To Do. Taylor spent some time recording and hanging out at Wood's house The Wick and then asked bandmate Keith Richards (who didn't really know Wood yet) to come along also. It was here that Wood first unveiled his idea for the new tune It's Only Rock'n Roll (But I Like It) to the others. It's Only Rock'n Roll, after Jimmy Miller's departure, was officially produced by The Glimmer Twins, a pseudonym for Mick Jagger and Keith Richards. Starting with this release, all future Rolling Stones albums would either be produced by them or in collaboration with an outside producer. The Rolling Stones 1973 European Tour was a concert tour of Great Britain and Continental Europe in September and October 1973 by The Rolling Stones. ...

In July, the lead single, "It's Only Rock'n Roll (But I Like It)", was released and despite the familiar sound, it surprised many by not reaching the Top 10. With its sing-along chorus, it has become a staple at Rolling Stones concerts. "Ain't Too Proud To Beg", originally a 1966 hit by The Temptations, was released as the second single in the US only, where it also became a Top 20 hit. Its parent album appeared in October with strong reviews and brisk initial sales, reaching #2 in the UK (breaking a string of #1 albums that stretched back to 1969's Let It Bleed) and #1 in the US where it eventually went platinum. Yet, It's Only Rock'n Roll's chart stay was relatively brief, amplifying to many that The Rolling Stones were indeed in the middle of a minor commercial slump. This wasn't helped by the fact that, instead of immediately touring to promote the album, the band decided to head back into the Munich studios to record the next album, to Mick Taylor's disappointment and subsequent resignation from the band - a tour didn't happen until the following summer in the US, the "Tour of the Americas '75", with future member Ron Wood filling in Mick Taylor's place. The Temptations (often abbreviated as The Tempts or The Temps) are an American Motown singing group whose repertoire has included doo-wop, soul, psychedelia, funk, disco, R&B, and adult contemporary. ...

In order to promote the album, music videos were filmed for several of the songs. The most commonly-seen video from the album was the video for "It's Only Rock'n Roll (But I Like It)", featuring the band (in sailor suits) playing in a tent, which gradually fills with soap bubbles. Videos were also filmed for "Ain't Too Proud to Beg" and "Till The Next Goodbye".
