Es hat mich schon erstaunt, dass in einer Zeit, wo jeder nur noch eigene Titel veröffentlicht, die Rolling Stones solch ein Album auf den Markt bringen. Ich finde es großartig diese alten Songs wieder aufzugreifen um damit auch den „Meistern“ des Blues‘ eine späte Ehrung zu erweisen.
Und sie zeigen auch, dass es möglich ist, nicht nur mit eigenen Songs erfolgreich zu sein.
Viele dieser eigenen Songs, die heute nahezu jede Band präsentiert, sind nicht unbedingt immer hörenswert. Sie sind fast immer schnell wieder vergessen. Es gibt soviel gutes altes Songmaterial woran man sich wunderbar versuchen kann.
Siehe die nachfolgenden Titel, die man auf dem neuen Album der Rolling Stones findet:
