Thankfully, producers didn't get in the way and step on anyone's toes or otherwise bend the music to suit their own preconceived notions of what constitutes the blues. The Brits loved American blues, at least postwar Brits did, and it shows on this album by the stones. Often derided in the sixties as plastic soul-by the very rnb entertainers they so admired and wanted to emulate- blue and lonesome will stand as a loving tribute to the blues by a band made fabulously wealthy and famous as opposed to the impoverished and forgotten lot of American blues men and women.
