A Rolling Stones Special: Got Blues If You Want It! (1 or 2 hours) [59:00 or 54:00 lengths]

From Paul Ingles | 01:57:56

As the Rolling Stones keep touring, and, in 2016, released a new blues cover album, we join the celebration with a public radio special from award-winning producer Paul Ingles. It's called "Got Blues If You Want It! A Rolling Stones Special". The program is exclusively devoted to an exploration of the blues and rhythm & blues roots of The Rolling Stones. Top-notch music writers, musicians and fans provide context for a cavalcade of the Stones' blues classics - both their covers of songs by their heroes and their own bluesy takes on their original rock 'n' roll.

A Rolling Stones Special. This program explores the blues and rhythm & blues roots of The Rolling Stones.  Top-notch music writers, musicians and fans provide context for a cavalcade of the Stones blues classics - both their covers of songs by their heroes and their own bluesy takes on their original rock 'n' roll.

The show also features clips from some of the original artists that inspired the Rolling Stones to play music - Howlin' Wolf, Muddy Waters, Chuck Berry, Slim Harpo and more.  This progam is no 'greatest hits' parade of overplayed Stones classics but instead features more of the unsung blues numbers that peppered their repertoire like "Little Red Rooster," "I'm a King Bee," "Love in Vain," "I Just Want to Make Love to You," "Ventilator Blues," and a recently released outtke, "Keep Up Blues," just to name a few.  In other words, the perfect alternative Stones special, just for public radio!  Includes a couple of cuts from the 2016 album Blue and Lonesome.

Commentators include roots/blues musician Taj Mahal, Rolling Stone Magazine's Anthony DeCurtis, Grammy Museum Director Bob Santelli, NPR Music's Ann Powers, writers Holly George-Warren and Geoff Edgers, and New York musician Jon Spurney.  Hour Two adds radio producer David Kunian, Howard Kramer of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum, and public radio blues show host Putnay Thomas.
