ROLLING STONES BEGINNINGS From Blue Boys To Playing Chess and Yesterday’s Papers 2CDs


Out of stock

Two CDs analysing the songs and styles that inspired the Rolling Stones with two fully illustrated 24-page booklets.

CD1 covers 1962-1964, documenting how Little Blue Boy and the Blue Boys became first the Rollin’ Stones and then the Rolling Stones we know and love today. The journey takes us from reel-to-reel recordings in suburban front rooms via primitive London studios with egg-box soundproofing to the legendary Chess studios in Chicago.

On CD 2, 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!

This compilation set highlights the cover versions responsible for shaping the Stones sound, then and now.
