This is it!

In terms of roots music impact, this is where you need to go for a slug. No real bad tracks. Andy F Low on I Shall Not Be Moved takes you there and back. #8 and 10 are great rockabilly rave-ups. I wish I could see 'em in person! This is what the Stones should be like!

what a band!

harpyrec

this cd is exactly what the stones SHOULD be doing and if this is any idication as to why bill went out of the band i think its a gopod one because bill knew what he wanted. the others werent doing good versions of the old songs and bill left the tension. what we have here,is a exellent performance of what bill wyman has oganized since his departure from fame. its a great concert,and its also avaiolible on dvd, but theres something about heatingg this album and not seeing it that makes it all more the reason to buy it!five stars since its real r&b!

They Say All Music Guide

When Bill Wyman left the Rolling Stones, he didn’t leave music at all. Instead, he went back to the songs he loved growing up, whether it was rock & roll or big band or folk/skiffle. Now, those tracks make up the majority of songs performed during Bill Wyman’s Rhythm Kings Live, taped during a Berlin concert in June 2005. Supported by a talented cast of musicians including guitarist Albert Lee, Wyman and company are introduced one by one, with each then joining in for a fun and lively boogie version of “I Got a Woman.” Each member of the band takes their turn on lead vocals, with Albert Lee taking charge during the swinging, big band bop of “Jump, Jive and Wail,” while “Baby Workout” has the soulful pipes of Beverley Skeete. For the most part, the album shows a group content to weave through some older rock and pop selections without any huge revisions. A good example of this is “If I Can’t Have You” with its old-school doo wop feeling. Meanwhile, the lone Wyman tune is the slightly punchy and playful “Jitterbug Boogie” that brings to mind Brian Setzer and his big band orchestra. And he takes the lead for the strolling “You Never Can Tell.” The bluesy “Bright Lights, Big City” is the first highlight, with a gritty blues format that sounds somewhat fresh and fully fleshed out. And the chugging skiffle fuelling “Muleskinner Blues” isn’t too shabby, either, resembling something Mark Knopfler might be interested in. A few tracks miss the mark, though, and are run-of-the-mill, particularly “Race with the Devil,” “Flatfoot Sam,” and a plodding “I Shall Not Be Moved.” The group obviously could be easily compared to Ringo Starr & His All-Starr Band, particularly with the mid-tempo tone of “Let’s Talk It Over.” But they fail miserably with the choice of covering Iggy Pop’s staple “Wild One (Real Wild Child).” – Jason MacNeil
