Album Review

Stones' Blues Idols Get Their Due

Various Artists - Confessin' The Blues

Thanks Grant.  I started listening to the Stones 2016 blues album Blue & Lonesome while reading the review.  On that CD the Stones did a really superb job with the music and featured many lesser-known blues songs.  Like Clapton and Bonnie Raitt, these musicians go back to the blues for inspiration though they obtain fame and fortune in the rock arenas.  Another way to see and hear the Stones play tribute to the blues is the 2017 Muddy Waters CD recorded live at the Checkerboard Lounge in 1981 with Mick, Keef, and Ronnie sitting in on some songs.  The CD is better than the DVD.   Junior Wells and Buddy Guy also make cameo appearances.  I'm an aging rock fan who switched over to electric blues in 1994 and haven't look back.
