(… ) ‘Happily, the performances – much bootlegged since the ’70s – are pure delight. The Camden Theatre set (which sneaked out on a deluxe edition of the GRRR! compilation in 2012) boasts set highlight Cops And Robbers. A Bo Diddley original, it’s performed as an homage to the young Stones’ spiritual home, a fantasyland of chunky R&B riffery and big screen Hollywood noir. Jagger devours the slang with such evangelical zeal it verges on camp.
Cops And Robbers is one of eight songs across the two discs not released by the Stones at the time. Two titles from that first October ’63 Saturday Club session underline the defining influence of Chuck Berry. Keith Richards’ solo on Roll Over Beethoven remains the template for his breaks to this day, while Jagger’s mimickry of Chuck’s ‘soft’ voice on Memphis, Tennessee was an early glimpse of a gift that’s served him well.  (…)
Many of the versions here stick close to the released takes. But when the group starts recording Jagger/Richards singles at RCA in Hollywood in 1965, namely The Last Time and Satisfaction, the lack of US-style reverberations makes for a more revealing listen. At the same time, contemporary US soul, often in the form of a Solomon Burke song (the Stones recorded If You Need Me four times for the BBC), was making inroads into their repertoire. (…) This is a hugely enjoyable landmark release”.  (by Mark Paytress, all rights reserved, quoted from:

RADIO 68 PLAYS the songs The Rolling Stones never recorded.

“Curtis Salgado’s earth-shaking vocals and forceful harmonica playing have been devastating audiences around the world for over 30 years. Alan Hager’s guitar expertise has been wowing fellow musicians from his hometown of Portland, Oregon and beyond for decades. Hager has been jamming with Salgado since 2003, and joined his band full-time in 2015. “Alan is the best player in the business, unlike anybody else,” Salgado says.
Together, the two blues fans and friends took time out of their busy touring schedule to record Rough Cut, a stripped-down album featuring a potent mix of newly written, timeless originals and carefully chosen blues covers. “We did it for the love of the music,” says Salgado. “This is where our hearts are. These are deep songs that we love to play.” (Source:  courtesy Alligator PR-sheet)

TINY LEGS TIM: Elsewhere Bound

“ (…) Tiny Legs Tim’s vorige album was geschoeid op de leest van de Deltablues. Voor Elsewhere Bound tapt hij uit veel meer vaatjes. Opener en titeltrack Elsewhere Bound en het daarop volgende One More Chance hebben beide die warmbloedige soul-jas die doet denken aan hoe funk en blues elkaar vonden eind jaren ’70. Still In Love is dan weer een huwelijk tussen een halve murderballad en jazzkroegblues, met halfweg een gitaarsolo die technisch misschien niet zo heel veel voorstelt, maar die wel heel doorleefd en doorrookt klinkt. Voor swingende rhythm & blues kan je terecht op In The Morning. Muzikaal klopt het plaatje van deze track helemaal, maar in de lyrics schiet Tiny Legs Tim willekeurig op alles wat beweegt. The Lovin’ Kind en Don’t Be Sorry volgen het spoor van de swamp-blues en americana en kunnen ook daar helemaal overtuigen. New Place is blues op een wel heel exotisch ritme en I Ain’t Ready (To Let You Go) is een folky tune voor een helemaal uit het leven gegrepen liefdeslied. Op The Game heeft Tiny Legs Tim zich voor zijn gitaarspel nogal laten inspireren door de touaregblues (Bombino en andere), met een tekst die inzake sfeer en toon doet denken aan de hoogdagen van Bob Dylan. En dat is nog niet eens het lekkerste snoepje in de winkel van Elsewhere Bound.(…)  Source / All Rights Reserved
