9. 'Black and Blue'
Released in 1976, at the height of disco fever, the Stones' 15th album found the band digging deep into soul ("Fool to Cry") and funk ("Hot Stuff"). The album also features the standout, seven-minute Jagger/Richards ballad "Memory Motel." It was the first Stones album with Ron Wood on guitar after he replaced Mick Taylor; the band also relied heavily on the contributions of guest keyboardist Billy Preston.
