Amoeba Review

12/01/2016

Without a single doubt, The Rolling Stones ARE rock and roll. Coming from the British wave of working class kids who grew up equally on Muddy Waters and Chuck Berry, the group has not only been influential with their outside look on rock, but created the new blues rock sound that defined the anger of the '60s and '70s. And in between all the drama (Altamont, drugs, near break-ups, deceased members), The Rolling Stones keep on keeping on and seem to be as energetic and even virile now in the fifty plus years they've been a band. It's incredible to think that in all those years, they prioritize original material over any covers. So it comes as a shock that in 2016 they release their first cover album, Blue & Lonesome. Instead of feeling like a series of missteps by covering songs that might be as far from their repertoire as expected, The Rolling Stones take it way, way, way back. Their first studio album in eleven years, Blue & Lonesome is a collection of loving versions of the type of R&B The Rolling Stones were raised on: heavy beats, sultry singing, and train-like rhythms. Their cover of Little Walter's "I Hate To See You Go" is as raw and solid as the original. Mick Jagger's harmonica slices right through the track that recalls the fiery solos of Little Walter's virtuoso harmonica playing. "Just Your Fool" takes another direction as it changes the style of the original bluesy jazz ballad by Buddy and Ella Johnson into a rollicking foot stomper that feels like their days recording at Muddy Shoals studio. Blue & Lonesome feels right at home being placed next to their seminal albums like Sticky Fingers and Some Girls. The Stones don't get any better than this.
