REVIEW:
In middle June 1992 Mick Jagger, while working on his solo album Wandering Spirit, took a brief night out in a Los Angeles club jamming with the Red Devils a blues band that allowed him to go back to his roots; he loved them and decided to try to record some blues standards with them. The recordings were supposed to be released but Jagger promotion of his solo album came in the way and they were postponed too many times, an unknown member of the Red Devils, frustrated with continuous delays gave a cassette tape of the session away. The idea of these sessions later developed in the Stones Blue And Lonesome album. Produced by Rick Rubin these sessions have been the focus of many bootlegs, held “A rare collection of fiery blues recorded live in the studio” as written on the cover of The Nature Of My Game (Mecca 666) the first silver release of these sessions issued in 1995 as well as The Famous Blues Sessions (Rabbit Records 004) containing all takes, even the ones hardly listenable marred by hiss that is the base from which these takes were worked; later was released Blues With A Feeling (VGP 070) with a selected number of takes before receiving equalizing treatment on Mean Ol’ World (Torn & Frayed 006), remastered by Mickboy with its own songs order. Subsequently it was Sister Morphine to work on these songs on a cdr called Blues Sessions (Morph 061) with a sound output very good and stereo, great quality achieved without allowing hiss throughout. It must be noticed that one track (Checking Up On My Baby) has been officially released on The Very Best of Mick Jagger showing the raw punch and blues style excellence the song offered and increasing fans regret for not having the whole set available officially. Other releases of this material include Care for the Blues (DS 001), Stoned Blues (no label) and Wandering Blues (no label) in 2003. Lately they have been rereleased as Feelin’ Blues (Golden Eggs 31) in 2018 and The Blues Sessions (Top Music 80463) in 2023. Remarkable players are Lester Butler on harp and Gene Taylor on piano and Paul Size and Dave Lee Bartel on tasty guitars that help colouring each number with intense creativity that fits in well with Jagger overstretched vocals that attempt to recreate the mid 50s -60s blues style that was on the original versions of these songs from Little Walter, Muddy Waters, Sonny Boy Williamson, Elmore James, Willie Dixon-Howlin Wolf, Skip James, Bukka White and Bernard Roth. This is Cpt. Acid version based on the Rabbit Records bootleg, which was phased, levelled, pitch corrected and newly equalized
