Classic Rock Bottom


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.
Here are the links to the Originals & Covers, at Mike Pell Rockollections:

The Originals are way cool.
Glad YOU liked it.
Not sure it’s Jon’s musical touch.
My diagnosis is heat stroke from caring for his lawn, LOL!
The grass talks to him, it’s interfering!
He’ll be good by Fall!
There are 2 more Parts coming, one later.
Thanks for the listen and writing,

Alright now you’re getting into it, the originals are better.
But for days, and nothing made your toe tap?
I don’t think you are losing your musical touch.
I think you have heat stroke, lol!
It’s the lawn Jon, stay off it...let it grow!
Thanks for the listen and writing,

I like the covers only because they are way sonically improved.  But the originals are pretty cool to hear!  I like this Mike!!  We can catch up with Jon on the next series when his musical touch returns...

Eh, same as part one to me. The originals are better.

I actually listened to part 1 for a couple days and this one for the last few hours and still really did nothing for me.

Maybe I'm losing my musical touch?
