A listen to the newest Rolling Stones album that came out just last December, Blue And Lonesome.
It’s so strange to say a NEW Rolling Stones album- something we’ve been saying since 1964!
They went back to their Roots as a Blues Band when they started out in the 60’s.
It’s their only album to feature ALL Cover Songs.
I thought it would be interesting to compare the Original Blues Songs with the Rolling Stones Covers.
So that’s the idea, I'll start with the Original followed by the Stones, and you can compare- which do you like better, did the Stones improve on it, put a new twist on it or just plain fail miserably?
I can't fit the whole album plus Originals in one show, so I will probably return to this next week, but it will certainly be continued sometime.
