    Default Rolling Stones Blue and Lonesome

    So...the world's greatest Rock band is paying homage to their roots.
    I'm listening right now.
    The title track (Little Walter) is raw and loose....very cool!
    Anybody digging it?
    Mick stepping out in a BIG way on harp.

    Best blues album of 2016, CC. Mick steps out on harp and Ronnie plays great nasty lead while Keith lays back for the most part. Though when Clapton plays slide on Everybody Knows About My Baby, Keith explodes with a trebly, nasty solo. I think he only takes a couple solos on the whole album, but man this one is awesome!
    Again, I think this album is perfect. Raw Chicago blues from elderly Englishmen who just kill it. They couldn't have done this back in 1964...they hadn't lived enough.

    They just delivered their best album since Exile. And it only took 3 days to record it.
    Astonishing.

    I downloaded it last month and have been playing it a lot. I will be honest I have not bought anything by the Stones in twenty years but they were playing early cuts from on SiriusXM and I loved it. It may actually be the best stones recordings since Some Girls.

    I bought it.....It remind me of the Ya-Ya's days...I found Mick's harp playing to need quite a bit of practice...

    I'm an old school Stones fan. My favorite song is Can't You Hear Me Knocking from the Sticky Fingers album (IMO their best album). Those were the days when Mick Taylor was still with them. Thanks for the tip.

    No doubt. Mick Taylor added a higher level of musical skill to the band. On the live "Midnight Rambler" (I forget the album title but Mick teases the crowd, "You don't want my trousers to fall down now, do ya?") Keith and Mick have their solos and Keith's is great. Then you hear Mick's...whoa, quite a contrast.

    About Blue & Lonesome, their sound happens to be my favorite electric blues sound, the Chitlin Circuit and West Memphis, Arkansas, of the 1950s. Those drums...them's the roots. Mick Taylor's guitar playing would be interesting on this album, but it would also add sophistication that just was not part of Blue and Lonesome's roots Blues. IMHO,

    I found this great Mick Taylor solo but lost it. Sorry, I'll look for it tomorrow.

    OK I found the Mick Taylor video I wanted to share earlier this morning. Does anyone have thoughts on how he gets that tone? I can't put my finger on it. As you can see, he is playing a Les Paul and I have a Les Paul Custom with 490R and 498T pick ups. Maybe his amp? I had to sell my favorite amp, a '65 Twin Reverb, because it was way too heavy and way too much amp for my house. Here goes:

    I hope you like it.
