The Rolling Stones Play Tunes For The Mod Incrowd

The Rolling Stones Play Tunes For The Mod Incrowd

Playing tracks by

The rolling stones.

A 'fantasy' compilation I did in 2003, just to prove (to a mod friend "with blinkers") that the Stones had more than a slight connection with the music the original mods used to listen to. Too successful too soon to appeal to mods maybe, but with the same music background. I resurrected it now for many reasons: the Stones 50 years celebrations, the fact I'm personally "back to the blues", the chat I recently had with Ronnie Jones with stories of Jagger, Alexis Korner, Cyril Davies and all the "guys" of the British RnB scene he knew very well. Good reasons to share it on Mixcloud? Just "early" Rolling Stones then, playing blues, rnb, soul, covers, Motown. Very-Chess influenced. Official recordings, a few demo jewels, and a coupla alternate versions. Running order as it was on my CDr, no need to edit the blank between tracks. Play it on the carstereo, in the club before the party, at the bar with a cappucino...

Nice one Cap. it always amazes me when a 'mod' dismisses the stones. As your mix here proves, they were every bit as authentic as the Small Faces or Georgie Fame.

I loved, and still do, the Stones' early stuff, bought these EP's & LP's in mid-seventies, while waiting for punk rock to come along
