What an excellent album. I bought this on the strength of having heard "Tax Man" on the radio, which is the best version I have ever heard. This album can truely be described as R&B unlike what is generally considered as R&B in modern music, but it touches on swing and soul also. I had expected the album to be more blues based R&B given the origins of the Rolling Stones, but this is a CD recorded by someone who is obviously enjoying his music and has produced a truely great recording. This is the first CD I have bought for a long time that I loved every track.

Just for a Thrill has a collection of old blues classics, and a few newer tracks, lovingly recreated with hints of jazz, rock and swing by a bunch of talented enthusiasts thoroughly enjoying themselves. If you already like Bill Wyman's Rhythm Kings music, then this CD will not disappoint you.

Guests include Mark Knopfler, Andy Fairweather Low and Tommy Emmanuel. Some of my favourite tracks are 'Down Home Girl', 'Mississippi Flyer', 'Memphis Woman' and 'Taxman'. On my 2004 version of this 'Special Edition' the extra track 15 was the outstanding 'Jitterbug Boogie', but I notice that now you are just as likely to get two different extra 'Live' tracks 15 'Hit the Road Jack' and 16 'Georgia on my Mind'.

Previous excellent CDs with almost no track duplication are Struttin' Our Stuff, Anyway the Wind Blows, Groovin' and Double Bill. However, the later live concert recordings, available from Bill Wyman's website as the Bootleg Kings, are collected together in a double CD Jump Jive and Wail and those are almost all live and enhanced repeats of material on the first five CDs.

Absolutely brilliant. An outstanding version of Taxman by Beverley Skeete who displays her superb vocal range on this cd.

I have bought all the Rhythm Kings' cd's and usually enjoyed them tremendously. This one unfortunately only picks up from track # 11, the Beatles' Tax Man. As far as I'm concerned, the 10 tracks before that are easy on the ears but also rather forgettable 1920's style blues songs. It doesn't help that this album is also almost totally devoid of instrumental solos. Which is a shame considering the fact that a number of great instrumentalists like Albert Lee are members of this band.
In consequence, 3 stars for an easy listening background music album. For real fire and great songs, I very much prefer the Kings'latest DVD, Let the Good Times Roll.
