Charted: 49
  • With Mick Taylor gone, The Stones were auditioning lead guitarists while recording Black And Blue. Harvey Mandel from Canned Heat played on this, but Ron Wood got the job.
  • This was dangerously close to disco - Donna Summer had a disco hit three years later with a the same title.
  • Billy Preston played the piano, Ollie E. Brown was on percussion.
  • "Hot Stuff" was the working title for the album until they decided on Black And Blue.
