Record Of The Month - The Rolling Stones 'blue & Lonesome'

Issue 18

On 2nd December, The Rolling Stones are set to release their first studio album in 11 years. “Blue & Lonesome” marks a desire to return to their roots in blues music and is a tribute to their formative years as a young blues band in London.

No tracks have been penned by The Glimmer Twins themselves as the album instead features cover versions of tracks by Jimmy Reed, Little Walter and Howlin’ Wolf to name but a few.

Recorded over the course of just 3 days in December 2015, the album aims to capture the spontaneity which defines their live performances with old friend and fellow Blues maestro Eric Clapton joining the band on two of the twelve tracks. And, if recent singles “Just your fool” and “Hate to see you go” are anything to go by, it’s set to be a real corker!
