©Rhythm And Blues Records 2009

A series of compilation CDs highlighting the songs and styles that inspired the Beatles and the Rolling Stones and which ultimately were responsible for shaping their sound. For too long the covers CD has been the province of freebie magazine cover-mounts and shoddy garage cheapies. No more. Because Rhythm And Blues Records are Doing It Right. Following on from their well-received compilations covering the roots of rhythm & blues, the R&B team shine a spotlight on the songs that shaped the Rolling Stones.

From Blue Boys To Playing Chess
Covers 1962-1964, documenting how Little Blue Boy and the Blue Boys became first the Rollin’ Stones and then the Rolling Stones we know and love today. The journey takes us from reel-to-reel recordings in suburban front rooms via primitive London studios with egg-box soundproofing to the legendary Chess studios in Chicago. Over twenty-five songs this CD features seminal artists such as Chuck Berry, Muddy Waters, Jimmy Reed, Bo Diddley, Slim Harpo and Big Bill Broonzy as well as the lesser known Tampa Red, Will Bradley and Jazz Gillum. This compilation highlights the cover versions responsible for shaping the Stones sound, then and now.

All tracks have been carefully remastered to optimise the sound. An extensively illustrated 32 page booklet features detailed sleeve notes from compilers Nick Duckett and Simon Wright, including a track-by-track commentary and an essay explaining the significance of each song to the band.
