ACHTERGRONDINFORMATIE ** BACKGROUND
THE ROLLING STONES AS BLUES, COUNTRY and SOUL MEN
The Rolling Stones will soon be releasing a new studio album with blues songs worldwide, simply titled BLUE AND LONESOME. And it’s covers only, with lots of Chicago blues if we are to believe Keith Richards. The Rolling Stones have come full circle, since they were among the first white bands in Britain to go for R&B. Mostly covers or clever copies of originators like Jimmy Reed. The Rolling Stones followed a trend set by British blues godfathers Alexis Korner, Cyril Davies, Geoff Bradford, Chris Barber, Otille Patterson et al.
COUNTRY & SOUL STONES
It would be wrong, however, to see the Stones as an R&B band only. Early on, they covered soul songs (e.g. by Marvin Gaye) and country influences were evident as early as Aftermath (e.g. High and Dry).
RADIO 68 PLAYS The Rolling Stones with blues, country and soul songs.
THE HOLLIES: FOR CERTAIN BECAUSE
When For Certain Because (released as Stop Stop Stop in America) came out in 1966, most pop bands were determined to create music that went deeper than traditional songs about true love and heartache. This development struck a chord with The Hollies, and For Certain Because became the first of three albums that found them at their most innovative and inspiring. Band members Graham Nash, Allan Clarke, and Tony Hicks became adept at composing songs that retained The Hollies’ trademark harmonies and effervescent melodies, but placed them in new surroundings. Like Evolution and Butterfly, which followed shortly after, it was pretty much flawless.
MOBY GRAPE, 1967
To this day Moby Grape’s electrifying debut not only stands the test of time, but heads and shoulders above even their most celebrated contemporaries’ best albums.
The fact that Moby Grape has been lost to the annals of rock music’s history will always be one of its most shameful sins. As a larger rock music community, we are all responsible for this calamity. Moby Grape really had it all: exceptionally talented songwriters, incredible guitar players, a rhythm section on par with any in the world and a unique diversity that spoke volumes in the relatively streamlined San Francisco psychedelic scene of the 1960’s.
