Format: Audio CD
Not a Rolling Stones album of course, but a fascinating source of information and exploration for anyone interested in finding out about the music that influenced the Greatest Rock 'n' Roll Band in the World (and should'nt that be Rhythm & Blues Band anyway?) when they were just a group of music mad teenagers scattered around various parts of North Kent, South London and Gloucestershire.

Rumour has it that Mick Jagger was carrying some of this very music with him when he first met Keith Richards on Platform 3 of Dartford Railway Station c.1962. Meanwhile down in Cheltenham, Brian 'Elmo' Jones was perfecting his Elmore James licks and working his way through the Muddy Waters songbook, including noting that Rolling Stone Blues might make a useful band name one day.

This excellent album is the latest release from Snapper Music in their ongoing 'Blues Roots' series, and contains a top quality mix of both well-known and extremely-rare tracks. It is wonderful to see Rev. Robert Wilkins, Leroy Carr and Robert Petway placed side-by-side with Chuck Berry, B.B. King and Howlin' Wolf, as well as the aforementioned Elmore James and Muddy Waters. Naturally, with an undertaking of this complexity - the licensing alone must be a nightmare - there are a few omissions. There is no Willie Dixon (Pain in my Heart), Amos Milburn (Down the Road Apiece), Gene Allison (You can make it if you try) or Alvin Robinson (Down Home Girl). And sadly there is nothing either from a man who is one of the least credited influences on the Stones - Jimmy Rogers.

Listening to these original artists doing heir songs, and comparing them to the Stones versions is fantastic.The stones have the advantage of better Guitars and apmlifires that the many of the original artists did NOT have, so comparisons are up to the individual, but one can hear these fantastic blues numbers done by the best of the early Blues artists doing it THEIR WAy!!!

During the early 1960s the 22 tracks on this excellent compilation had a profound impact on The Rolling Stones who covered these songs in their early recording sessions or played them in their set lists.
Artists such as Muddy Waters, Howlin' Wolf, Jimmy Reed, Elmore James, Slim Harpo & Bo Diddley were idolised by The Stones and were a crucial influence on the British R & B boom of the early 60s.
This CD is a welcome reminder of those times and a superb representation of The Stones' blues roots.

Of all the Blues Roots albums, this is the best. It's a great collection of artists and tracks that capture the essence of the Rolling Stones. It is one of my "most played" albums.
