The Rolling Stones going back to the blues

The Rolling Stones have gone back to their roots to create an album of blues covers for their next record.

Mick Jagger and Ronnie Wood dropped hints on Twitter this weekend while Keith Richards showed off his new Blue guitar picks.

So if it only took them two days to cut eleven tunes, why then have they not been releasing two or three albums per year like they did in the 1964-1967 period when incidentally they were really good?

Probably because this is a covers album.

I think their ambitions were a bit different then.

Exclamation Re: The Rolling Stones going back to the blues

Evidently it's scheduled for release in December. Their last album, A Bigger Bang, had sixteen tracks so hopefully this next one will have more than just the eleven.

With the popularity of vinyl nowadays albums are shorter. Bigger Bang was over an hour running time.

Lots of tunes about aches and pains, I'm sure.

Even less excuse therefore not to record at least a couple of albums per year.

Ain't gonna happen. They can make more money by touring every once in a while. There's no incentive for making multiple albums every year ... unless they feel they owe their fans that

The Rolling Stones performed a surprise show for 1,200 truckers at the Bellagio Hotel in Las Vegas on October 3 and, a day later, issued a pair of video clips teasing news of their first new album in a decade.

Wow! Can you imagine how surprised the truckers were? "And now as our special guests, we have a rock 'n roll band calling themselves the Rolling Stones!"

Charlie Musselwhite will be tough to top on Just a Fool.

Re: The Rolling Stones going back to the blues

Could be good. The best tracks on Bigger Bang were the bluesier ones. If any of these covers are as good as Back of My Hand or Laugh I Nearly Died then I'll be thrilled.

No overdubs, eh? Let's see, recorded in December 2015 but not due to be released until 2 December 2016? So perfectionists Mick and Keith refrained from fiddling with the tracks all these months and were just ageing them like one would a fine wine...? Yeah sure. I'm calling bull feathers on that claim.



Nonetheless, with all the Little Walter tunes on the new album we'll be treated to a lot of Mick Jagger's harp playing. And he really does play it very well and should play it more often on Stones' records as well as live.
