Rolling Stones - Black and Blue (1994) Retail CD
Rock & Roll
So, Ron Wood had arrived and supposedly "auditions" on this album. It is a bit of a strange album, The Stones' "reggae" cut, recorded in the Caribbean and it certainly carries a laid-back groove and a general ambience of heat and langour. Contemporary disco and funk sounds and of course reggae are the influences and "Hot Stuff" takes over where "Fingerprint File" left off and acts as a precursor for "Miss You". Like it or not, The Stones do this sort of thing well. "Memory Motel" and "Fool To Cry" are ballads in the style continued by "Worried About You" from "Tattoo You" (which was written formore… this album but didn't make it - at only eight tracks maybe it should have done?). "Hey Negrita" has that reggae groove and "Hand Of Fate" is a true Stones rocker that shows they could still trot them out in their sleep. "Melody" is, in my opinion, possibly the worst piece of indulgence ever laid down by The Stones.
All being said, however, a worthy inclusion in a retrospective collection.
