This album is a timeless classic, and should be mandatory listening for anyone aspiring to be a guitarist of merit. It is without doubt one of the finest blues records ever recorded and well worth the price of admission, and then some.
Taken together, these two albums are a remarkable representation of this incredible lineup of legendary musicians. They show just how advanced they were even before they went on to other groups including the first incarnation of Fleetwood Mac.
Festival proceeds go to the Blues in the Schools program. Students have the opportunity to write and perform with award-winning guest musicians and internationally recognized music educators in their classrooms.
Yet, here are the Rolling Stones, telling us "School is in session, and here is how it's done." Not with malice. Not with a sense of being smug, or full of themselves. No: It is done with a sense of knowing.
