Product Description

Amazon.ca

Mick Taylor est parti faire du jazz rock avec Jack Bruce, il lui faut donc un remplaçant. Plutôt que d'auditionner bêtement des guitaristes, les Stones invitent les impétrants à venir graver des parties de guitare sur Black And Blue . Cela permet d'entendre quelques belles envolées de Harvey Mandel (Canned Heat) sur le funky "Hot Stuff" ou la grande ballade romantique "Memory Motel". Ils optent finalement pour Ron Wood, transfuge des Faces et pote de Keith Richards. Les deux font la paire de riffeurs fous sur le reggae "Cherry Oh Baby", le moite "Hey Negrita" et s'effacent derrière l'organe velouté du crooner Mick Jagger sur "Fool To Cry", tentative réussie, après "Angie", de renouvellement du coup du slow de l'été. --Hubert Deshouse

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the Best Rock albums of ALL TIME June 30 2004
By Victor
Format:Audio CD
I was skeptical about buying this album. I had been into the Stones for years, but I read mixed reviews about it, and how it was a minor disappointment when it was released in 1976. But I finally purchased a copy of the album on a whim, and it turned out to be surprisingly brilliant and crafted with the talent that most Stones records are noted for.
BLACK AND BLUE is up there with the best of the Stone's body of work. It's not as daring or encompassing as Exile on Main St., not as bluesy as Sticky Fingers, but it's also just as inspired as Beggar's Banquet or Let It Bleed, and after listening to those four impeccable masterpiece albums, I'd encourage you to add BLACK AND BLUE to the collection. It is a much better than IT'S ONLY ROCK N' ROLL, and is a good introduction to the brilliance that would continue to surface with SOME GIRLS
The craft of songwriting and recording is as palpable as the rest of their amazing work from the late 60s and early 70s. The biggest highlight of the album, by far, is MEMORY MOTEL. It's definitely one of the most beautiful rock songs ever written. It's epic, but not in the grand stratosphere of arena rock as say- STAIRWAY TO HEAVEN. It's subtle, charming and brilliant. In the same vain is FOOL TO CRY, which turned out to be the album's most popular song. It sounds very similar to MEMORY MOTEL in some aspects, but each song can stand on its own. There are other gems such as HAND OF FATE and CRAZY MAMA which can stand as the epitome of all hard rock Stones songs. It served as a precedent for many of the songs that would be heard on SOME GIRLS and TATTOO YOU, with less blues and more of what would be known as 70s Classic Rock.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hugely underrated Stones album June 21 2004
Format:Audio CD
The Rolling Stones' album Black and Blue was released in April of 1976. This particular Rolling Stones album was the first album for the band since the departure of guitarist Mick Taylor. Some have called this album the guitar audition album because Wayne Perkins, Harvey Mandel and Ron Wood all took turns auditioning for the guitarist spot. Lead singer Mick Jagger and guitarist Keith Richards wrote all but one track(Cherry Oh Baby) on this album and the album is a classic. Black and Blue was recorded between December of 1974 and December of 1975 in Germany with Mick and Keith producing and Keith Harwood recording and Glyn Johns mixing. Bass player Bill Wyman and drummer Charlie Watts played well on this album as well. Some of the highlights are the funky opener Hot Stuff which featured lead guitarist Harvey Mandel, Hand of Fate with Wayne Perkins doing some great fretwork, the ballad Memory Motel, Ron Wood's slide induced Hey Negrita, the hit ballad Fool to Cry and of course the closing Crazy Mama with a great riff from Mick Jagger whom played rhythm guitars on the track. The album did very well hitting #1 making it the fifth Stones studio effort in a row to top Billboard and was the first Platinum album for the band. Some fans hate this album, but others like me, love it. This album is highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic underrated Stones album June 9 2004
Format:Audio CD
The Rolling Stones' album Black AND Blue was released in April of 1976. To correct a one-star reviewer, The Backstreet Boys' album was Black & Blue and not Black AND Blue like The Stones had it. The Stones album preceded the Backstreet's album by 24 years. This Rolling Stones album was the first since the departure of guitarist Mick Taylor. Some have called this album the guitar audition album because Wayne Perkins, Harvey Mandel and Ron Wood all took turns auditioning for the guitarist spot. Lead singer Mick Jagger and guitarist Keith Richards wrote all but one track(Cherry Oh Baby) on this album and the album is a classic. Black and Blue was recorded between December of 1974 and December of 1975 in Germany with Mick and Keith producing and Keith Harwood recording and Glyn Johns mixing. Bass player Bill Wyman and drummer Charlie Watts played well on this album as well. Some of the highlights are the funky opener Hot Stuff which featured lead guitarist Harvey Mandel, Hand of Fate with Wayne Perkins doing some great fretwork, the ballad Memory Motel, Ron Wood's slide induced Hey Negrita, the hit ballad Fool to Cry and of course the closing Crazy Mama with a great riff from Mick Jagger whom played rhythm guitars on the track.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of their best June 6 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
First it should be said that this is one of the Stones' best sounding albums to this date as they were never really known for producing great "sound quality" albums. ...To our benefit, the recordings feature some of the best guitarists of the day particularly Wayne Perkins who has [great] Mick Taylor like solo in Hand Of Fate. As a player, he definitely outshines Ron Wood, who got the gig. The only so-so song is Oh Cherry Oh Baby, and I'm not that strong on Hot Stuff either. The best songs are Hand Of Fate, Memory Motel, Hey! Negrita, Fool to cry, and Melody, where Billy Preston shines as he sings very soulfully with Mick. Excellent piano from him too. There are only 8 tracks as well which did not bother me when I had the album but bothers me a bit now that I have the CD. Wish it was longer. All in all a great work by the Stones and definitely recommended. Oh, I forgot to mention - One of the best classic rock album sleeves you'll find here which shows the studio track layout for each song and documents all the overdubs etc...better with the album but good here too.

The sad thing about this album is there was so many unreleased great songs floating around at this time and they only finished 8. And most of them are pretty weak. Read more
