When this album was released, and prior to actually listening to it, I considered it a money making cop out, putting out a ‘covers’ album just to grab a bit more lucre. As a long term avid Stones fan, I finally relented and got around to listening to it. Well, fair to say I was knocked back on my backside by the effort and commitment to go back to some artists and tunes that helped influence the Stones during their first 15years at least and at times thereafter. My only criticism is that many of the songs could have been stretched out to longer versions while still staying true to the original, as many bands do. This is actually a fairly short album running at a tick over 40min. Minor criticism aside, a very fine album by a band that can still pull it off, even if they now struggle to come up with original songs.
