MOJO PRESENTS: The Roots Of The Rolling Stones (2012)

The Roots Of The Rolling Stones (Aug 2012)

Not a very creative freebie from the latest edition of MOJO, as there are dozens of these kinds of tributes to the Rolling Stones from various sources… but, you can’t fault the music. It’s some of the best on earth. I’ve got it on now and am loving every second of it.

    Elemental but certainly not creative — I noticed that many of these tracks were used on previous Mojo compilations (maybe they’re avoiding licensing fees?)

    I have to agree with your comment, Willard. Brilliant music in a completely superfluous compilation. Some cuts the Stones covered officially, some they did live in the early days, but roots? Needs some jazz, some boogie-woogie, some Roy Rogers (for Keith), some old-fashioned nudge-nudge-wink-wink music-hall … We’ll start with “Old Man River”, then maybe “Stormy Weather” too … there could be a fascinating little album there. Oh well. Thanks as ever for posting it.

    Certainly not one of MOJO’s greatest for sure, but thanks as usual Willard.
    BTW, does anyone know why the MOJO cd’s always have only 15 tracks?!

    Thanks Willard.
    Dr. F maybe 15 is the average age of their readers?

    imho there is never enough credit given to the talents of black american artists whose innovative work from the mid-20th century was the basis for much of what we know as rock n roll. more the merrier, cheers!! :)
