Yet another chart topping US album and one that made number two in Britain.

It also has the distinction of being the studio album that has spent longest on the American charts. It’s success in America was helped by “Miss You” making it to number one in the summer of 1978, followed by “Beast of Burden”, a Top Ten single in the Autumn and then “Shattered” reaching number thirty one in early 1979. In Britain “Miss You” went to number three and the follow up, “Respectable” got to number twenty three. All in all it’s an album full of memorable songs, which is what accounted for it going six times Platinum in the US. The 2011 reissue of the album included a CD of bonus tracks mostly recorded during the two sessions at Pathé Marconi Studios in Paris that produced the original album. This was the first album on which Keith added the ‘s’ to the end of his name that he had dropped back in 1963 when their career began.
