Anyone who says the Stones "Can't do Blues" should not only listen to the album Blue and Lonesome, but should listen to this track in particular. It captures the very essence of Blues. It's so soulful, stripped-back and emotive. Equally anyone who doubts just how magnificently Mick plays the harp (this song, again, is a great example). It's not just another album to them, it's a burning lifelong ambition of theirs; especially Mick and Keith's. And this album shows their great passion for the genre. It's 50 years worth the wait. - Britgirl
"Rocks is my pillow, cold ground is my bed. Blue sky is my blanket, moonlight's my spread. I'm not ashamed, ain't that news. I've been livin' with the blues."
This is not as sad as it sounds. It's quite warm and uplifting, I think. I love that it's so stripped-back and honest and really rather comforting. Two men: one sings while the other plays harp.
Update: This sample is not the version I have but it's still really good. - Britgirl
Havin' a real bad day ends the moment this little gem starts. Just so... Well, anyone who knows this song, knows how it leaves you.
Très cool. - Britgirl
Prefer the vocals by Elmore but Stevie's guitar...wow! - Britgirl
Can't believe this wasn't added sooner! Although it's a good thing I corrected my typo before adding it; somehow I'm Your Hoochie Coochie Nan just wouldn't have seemed...right... - Britgirl
