Blue and Lonesome sees The Rolling Stones, in the sixth decade of their recording career, going back to their roots and playing the blues. The album features versions of songs by Howlin’ Wolf, Willie Dixon and Jimmy Reed It was recorded live in the studio in just three days. Eric Clapton makes a guest appearance too.
8/10 Jack Customer review, 25th July 2017
For me the most impressive aspect of this release is that I believe it was incredibly savvy for the Stones to go into an unvarnished blues genre direction. For better or worse, the Stones are prisoners of their mega-success -- anything new they record doesn't compare well to what they did in their prolonged career apex. Their sound both echoes and extends the 5-piece/2-guitar loud power blues band approach pioneered by Muddy Waters. As a fan of the classic blues men, I found this record surprisingly fresh.
