The Rolling Stones, “Blue & Lone­some”

The Denver Post - - LIFE & CULTURE -

It shouldn’t be a sur­prise, but still it’s a bit star­tling to hear just how well the Rolling Stones can play the blues. The songs have grown, ex­panded, been given room to breathe com­pared to those of their early days, and the play­ing is re­mark­ably self-as­sured and com­fort­able. The Stones’ early pas­sion for the blues helped in­tro­duce a young white au­di­ence to the es­tab­lished giants of the Chicago blues scene. Songs like “Lit­tle Rain” and “Hoo Doo Blues” show the Stones can con­tinue the tra­di­tion on their own. — Gre­gory Katz, The As­so­ci­ated Press
