HIGHLY RECOMMENDED !!!
This is a blues record, filled with fast-rocking songs like "Route 66" and "Carol", together with slower, but equally great, ones like "I'm A King Bee" and "Honest I Do". And I must say it is amazing how the Stones at such a young age almost reach the level of their idols, like Chuck Berry and Muddy Waters. Despite their youth (they were all in their early 20's when making this record) all of the songs, in all their dirtiness and honesty, sound very adult and mature. The passion they were feeling for these songs really shine through, and its wonderful when you encounter artists with such affection for their material. And the band also plays remarkably well together, like they have been together for years. Just listen to how Charlie Watts (drums) and Bill Wyman (bass) already are on their way to creating a unique rhythm section in rock'n'roll, or the magnificent guitar weaving between Keith Richards and Brian Jones. And although you can sense the youth in Mick Jagger's voice, he stills sounds very provoking and sexy. The harmonica playing, split up between Jones and Mick Jagger, also deserves an honorable mention, since it is nothing short of great.Read more ›
