EDITORS’ NOTES

On his first solo album in 23 years, the Stones legend returns to the classics—folk-blues, soul, rock ‘n’ roll, and reggae—carving handsome riffs from the styles that inspired him to pick up a guitar. It’s a relaxed, T-shirt and jeans affair. Keith plays with freedom and feeling, while singing with gruff authenticity. Norah Jones pops by for a duet on “Illusion”—their vocal interplay must be heard. Covers of Lead Belly (“Goodnight Irene”) and Gregory Isaacs (“Love Is Overdue”) extend the appreciative arm of thanks, revealing a deep respect and admiration that can be felt beyond the last strum.

Oh, How I Have Missed This!

I can’t believe it’s been 23 years since his last album. It’s been too long.
I love early Stones albums like Exile and Sticky Fingers but their efforts in the 80’s were wholly uninspired. Then out of nowhere Keith dropped Talk Is Cheap in 1988. An album full of grit, sweat and brilliance. It floored me. It's what the Stones should have been producing! It’s what they should have been. It was real. Main Offender was then released in 1992 and was another instant classic…. then nothing for 20 years. Until now. Thanks Keef, keep it coming.

Some things get better with age.

I saw Keith a few weeks ago on the Zip Code tour. He and the Stones blew the place away. I’ve seen the Stones many times but they seem to get better with age. Keith Richards new single ‘Trouble’ is evidence that Richards is like a fine wine. ‘Trouble’ is a rocker with riffs and lyrics that come from the gut. Richards doesn’t disappoint. I can’t wait to hear the album in September. Only thing better is if Keith decides to hit the road again.
