From the The Rolling Stones – All the Songs book:
The Rolling Stones chose to record Some Girls at the Pathé Marconi EMI
Studios on rue de Sèvres in Boulogne-Billancourt, near Paris. This may
seem a surprising choice for an album inspired to such an extent by New
York, but the British musicians apparently had a strong bond with France,
as this was the second time, after Exile on Main St., that they had recorded
there. And they would remain faithful to that country for their next four
albums. The real reason was that the studios were owned by EMI, with
whom they had just signed a worldwide agreement (with the exception of
North America). When they turned up, they were presented with three
possibilities: there were two large, high-ceilinged studios equipped with 24-
tracks, plus a more modest studio equipped with a 16-track.
They opted for
the latter as a rehearsal room, but Mick wanted to move when it came to
recording, in order to take advantage of the fashionable technology of the
day. It should also be pointed out that the control room could not
accommodate more than four people at any one time and the two (JBL)
playback speakers were not on the same horizontal plane. Chris Kimsey, the
sound engineer who had worked as an assistant on Sticky Fingers and was
now replacing Keith Harwood, who had been killed in a car accident in
September 1976, tried to dissuade him, explaining that this technical
limitation was actually a blessing: “Well, I think you should stay here—it
sounds great in this room…” Jagger did not see things the same way,
replying: “We can’t use that, it’s 16-track!”
Keith came down on Kimsey’s side: “It was a great room to play in.
So, despite Mick doing his usual ‘Let’s move to a proper studio’ that’s where
we stayed, because in a recording session, especially with this kind of music,
everything has to feel good.
