House of Blues release

Gorman

I **love** this disc. Released under the title "Paint It Blue." See the additional reviews on Amazon...mostly 5-stars. The Johnny Copeland track is particularly great; he recorded this track the day before he went into the hospital for open-heart surgery and he never left...died within the month. I give this disc away to good friends, can't believe it's on eMusic! Great deal

Dull covers

MBW1

It's only worth doing a cover if you can put a new life into it. Only Taj Mahal's "Honky Tonk Women" is different enough for me to prefer it to the original.

A few notables

Sonics

Two solid covers; one by Junior Wells, "Satisfaction", works as a barrelhouse blues. The other is Clarence "Gatemouth" Brown's estimable version of "Ventilator Blues." The great tracks though are Otis Clay's singing "Wild Horses"--you'd sware he wrote it himself. The other is Alvin Youngblood Hart's "Sway," pulled off because he has the strain in his voice, but the lead guitar to finish it off.

Pretty Good

FLBluesFan

This is actually a bit better than expected. The remakes are all generally well done, with enough of the original song to make it familiar, and enough innovation to make it fresh. There is no real standout, but I like Bobby Womack's version of "It's All Over Now", which makes sense since he wrote it. Conversely, there is something about Joe Louis Walker's version of "Heart Of Stone" that feels plodding, although the horns are quite good. Download this if you're a Stones fan, or a soul/blues fan, or both.

Great stuff.

Excellent. Features Derek Trucks on many tracks, by the way.

They Say All Music Guide

The Rolling Stones: This Ain’t No Tribute Series — All Blues’d Up! is a collection of songs either written or made famous by the Rolling Stones. Starting with a fantastic run-through of “You Can’t Always Get What You Want” by Luther Allison, the album is an energetic and bright collection of good blues. Where other volumes in this series have failed because they haven’t captured the emotion and power behind the artists to whom they were paying tribute, this volume does a good job of latching on to the sleazy and dirty vibe the band was so good at cultivating. The album is missing the brash bravado of the original renditions, but what is loses in confrontation it gains in greasy, unwashed rowdiness. The production is rather glossy, but the attitude of contributors like Junior Wells and Luther Allison makes this a fun recommendation for fans of the band or the genre. – Bradley Torreano
