We know that the Stones built their early career on songs originally performed by The Holy Trinity – Chuck Berry, Bo Diddley and Jimmy Reed. But did you know that the Stones also performed songs made famous by Elvis Presley, Ritchie Valens and the Shadows? It’s all here – fully documented and sounding terrific. We focus on the seminal years 1962- 1965 as the Stones evolved from duplicating the music made by their American idols and start to give it their own distinctive treatment. Even after fifty years these 27 tracks tells us a lot about the musical DNA of the Rolling Stones. Dig in!
A series of CDs analysing the songs and styles that inspired the Rolling Stones with fully illustrated 24-page booklet.
