Album Notes
The Rolling Stones: Mick Jagger (vocals, harmonica); Keith Richards (guitar, background vocals); Brian Jones (guitar, harmonica); Bill Wyman (bass); Charlie Watts (drums).Additional personnel: Ian Stewart (piano, organ); Jack Nitzsche (piano).Recorded at Chess Studios, Chicago, Illinois; RCA Studios, Hollywood, California; Regent Sound, London, England. Includes liner notes by Andrew Loog Oldham.Additional personnel: Ian Stewart , Jack Nitzsche (piano).Audio Remasterers: Jon Astley; Bob Ludwig; Steve Rosenthal; Teri Landi; Paschal Byrne.THE ROLLING STONES, NOW! is a masterpiece of early British R&B, Rolling Stones style. Things start off with a powerful rendition of Solomon Burke's signature tune "Everybody Needs Somebody To Love." Elsewhere, the Stones take a tour of American music, from Bo Diddley's "Mona," complete with choppy, reverbed guitar, to a slow, churning version of Willie Dixon's blues evergreen "Little Red Rooster," probably the first version of the song to feature fuzz bass.Amid all this esteemed company, though, the standout tracks are the Jagger-Richards originals. With its heartbreaking lyrics and poignant accompaniment, "Heart of Stone" could have been a classic soul ballad appropriated from some great, obscure American singer. On "What a Shame," the Stones prove that they don't have to look to outside sources for their blues. Keith's penetrating slide here, as on "Little Red Rooster," foreshadows greater things to come.

Chuck Berry Definitely An Influence

Created: 02/11/06
If you're a casual Rolling Stones fan, and want to hear Start Me Up, Satisfaction, Sympathy, or Mixed Emotions; this might not be the album for you. On the other hand, I love hearing old CDs of bands I love when they first started out. This one is no different. I believe this is their fourth album. They don't really sound anything like they do in later years in what you'd call their traditional sound, with their open G (among other tunings) crunch like on Start Me Up, Jumpin' Jack Flash, and Paint It Black. You can tell it's Mick singing, but it sounds like he's fronting a band that plays primarily Chuck Berry (by the way, they do Berry's You Can't Catch Me, so maybe that was the sound they were shooting for). Or maybe it's a band crossed between Berry, Creedence, and Elvis. I don't know. Something like that. The only song on this album that's constantly in any Hit's collection is Heart of Stone, which kind of has a sound like the Kinks. It's cool hearing an album of a band of the Stone's stature still young and still trying to find itself. This includes their sound, which Keith hasn't refined yet. It's an interesting piece of history in the very storied career of the Rolling Stones. If that sounds cool to you, then by all means enjoy.
