Biography

The Rolling Stones were formed in London in April 1962 by Brian Jones (guitar, harmonica), Ian Stewart (piano), Mick Jagger (lead vocals, harmonica, guitar), and Keith Richards (guitar, vocals). Bassist Bill Wyman and drummer Charlie Watts completed the early line-up. R&B and blues cover songs dominated the Rolling Stones' early material, but their repertoire has always included rock ...

This album is a curio. It sounds good, the production seeming a couple of notches ahead of the previous album 'It's Only Rock N Roll' (1974). But compared to that album it is song for song no worse and no better. It is not a great Stones record. 'Some Girls' (1978), the next one was...in my opinion, almost capturing the magic of 'Exile On Main Street' (1972).
So here is a band in a state of flux, trying to come to terms with the departure of Mick Taylor. A brave effort with a few highlights, but lacking that conviction and dare I say it arrogance, which defines their best work. But there are redeeming features for sure: Hot Stuff is a decent stab at disco which is pretty compelling. Fool To Cry is sentimental but quite moving really. Hand Of Fate is a standard Stones rocker but not bad at all. The rest of the tracks are interesting but as songs not exactly up there in the etchelons. Hey Negrita is a particularly lightweight reggae number, and Melody is an intersting mood piece heavily featuring Billy Preston but is pretty boring if we're honest. Cherry Oh Baby is a bit of a joke. Isn't it?
I quite like this album but cannot bring myself to give it four stars. Sorry. Good cover though!

This often overlooked album in the Stones' oeuvre shimmers with some good to great songs and contains a brilliant track. It kicks off with the funky Hot Stuff, followed by the passionate Hand Of Fate which is vintage Stones. Cherry O Baby is a lovely slice of reggae with intriguing organ lines and brilliant vocalizing, while the road epic Memory Motel is a moving story song. Hey Negrita is a wailing bluesy number and Melody soulfully ambles along with lovely guitar, sax, piano and Mick's falsetto voice. Fool To Cry starts as a gentle ballad but gets pretty raucous eventually, while Crazy Mama is the Stones at their rocking best, a powerful conclusion to this great album. It may not be amongst the Rolling Stones' top ten albums, but Black And Blue contains some strong songs with great melodies and playing throughout and no dud tracks. Rediscovering it was a great pleasure.

'Black And Blue' is often described as the album recorded as an audition to find the Stones next guitarist but actually it turns out to be a great deal more than that.

It's an infinitely better album than its predecessor 'It's Only Rock 'n' Roll' as the Stones were not so much parodying their own style with insubstantial results but were prepared to move forward and inject some new influences into their sound.

The contemporary funk sounds of the mid-seventies was where their attention was focused and with 'Hot Stuff' and 'Hey Negrita' the Stones found their own way of interpreting these sounds. The songs themselves seem rather irrelevant - it's the rhythm which is of primary importance. Jagger sings in his best raw black affected vocal and the guitar playing has a vibrancy which is truly intoxicating.

Of course there is always more to a Stones album than one style of music and two of the highlights are a couple of incredibly tender ballads - 'Fool To Cry' and 'Memory Motel'. These songs are perhaps softer than typical Stones ballads in a way that makes them extremely radio friendly.

There's also songs which are more typically Stones sounding like 'Hand Of Fate' and 'Crazy Mama' and although these songs aren't amongst the Stones most disinguished they work out just fine.

'Cherry Oh Baby' comes in for a lot of stick but it's actually not a bad reggae cover and the jazzy 'Melody' must rate at one of the least typical sounding Stones songs in their entire catalogue. There's a certain Billy Preston influence here i believe and it's still pretty good.

'Black And Blue' overall is a good album, well produced and well performed (especially by the session guitarists) however it still lacks much of the focus that can be found in the Stones very best work.

A nice album nonetheless.

Already having had their fare share of rock, country, folk, funk and soul the Stones here were auditioning for a new guitar player, a place taken by Ron Wood. Instead they ended up showcasing a wealth of diverse song material so effortlessly, that any first time listener might wonder if this is the same band. Mick tries voices like hats on the down and out funk of Hey Negrita and Cherry oh Baby ..On Memory Motel, Richards proves to be one the greatest bluesmen to have walked this planet!
