Blue Post

I guess if you want to post the Blues, it doesn’t get any bluer than the Stones. There are a lot of Rolling Stones bootlegs out there and I know some folks prefer complete shows or full sessions.

However, as an absolute beginner I’ll wade against the tide and let you have a compilation. This has the grabbing you title of ‘Acoustic Motherf***ers’. Mainly accurate although not all are completely acoustic. They are early seventies, Mick Taylor era studio takes and the set includes a great version of ‘All Down The Line’ with Mick looking for the words.

The set has been added to with ‘extras’ including Keef singing ‘Cocaine’ which I haven’t come across before. There’s also a version of ‘C***sucker Blues’. Not the final version from the movie, but an early acoustic one with a great Essex accent from Mick. All very wrong!

Heres the full track listing. There are more details and info in the archive, plus some artwork.
