Description

THE ROLLING STONES took their name from Muddy Waters’ Rollin’ Stone recording, thereby making it clear to all exactly where their roots lay. In 1964, on their first US tour they made a point of visiting Chicago and recording in the famous Chess Studio at 2120 South Michigan Avenue. “Hallowed Ground”, said Keith Richards, “there in the perfect sound studio, in the room where everything we had listened to was made, we recorded 14 tracks in two days”. One of the songs recorded was their version of Bobby and Shirley Womack’s It’s All Over Now that became their first UK Number One. In 1981 The Stones returned to Chicago to film and record a memorable session at Buddy Guy’s Checkerboard Lounge with Muddy Waters, Mojo Buford, Buddy Guy, Lefty Dizz, Junior Wells and more. Mick and the crew can be seen modestly taking a back seat in the proceedings, showing due deference to those Chicago greats.
