One only need to take a glance at the cover of the Rolling Stones’ 20th studio album Dirty Work to figure out in which decade it was recorded:
Released in 1986, Dirty Work marked a tumultuous time for the Stones. According to legend, guitarist Keith Richards and lead vocalist Mick Jagger were fighting over the launch of Jagger’s solo career — so much so that Jagger recorded his vocals separately from the rest of the band, after they had left the studio.
Dirty Work reached number 4 in the US charts, thanks in large to the Stones’ cover version of the old R&B classic tune Harlem Shuffle.
It’s hard to imagine a time when yellow pants and red suit jackets were cool, but if anyone could pull it off, it was the Rolling Stones.
