I see the stones store versions many have sold out!

That's what I thought, if you visit their site it shows sold out, but if you sign up for their email updates it sends you an email with a link to a different store/page where it shows you can still order all versions (I literally just placed an order before typing this and it went through).. Price is about $10 u.s. more than the pre-sale price, but it also gives you code for 10% off in the same email smiling smiley

Can anyone comment on the booklet that comes with the CDs? I have about 90% of this music already but to have a nice booklet and a couple songs I'm missing wouldn't be all bad I guess...

I'll bet the music is great! I can't get past the silly drawing on the cover, however.
If I was gonna give it a harsh treatment -- a critique -- like it might get if it really was a second year art school drawing class assignment... I would say:

* Red line quality is monotonous and extremely uniform throughout... no finesse. (Compared even to the expressive qualities of the black line in the hand, for example... which varies some in thickness and density to begin to reveal the actual form of the hand.)
* Lazy use of the red color to show the side of the guitar. Ditto for the white color on the guitar's top.
* Lack of any spatial or formal relationships between head, shoulders, arms, hands.
* Cartoonish, stereotype facial features.

Sorry, Ron.

There is info about each of the songwriters. no specific info about the song or info about why the Stones have ""handpicked"" each specific song.

The music is Great however, and only E 16,00 in the Netherlands (cd version).

The music is great, the liner notes less so.

It would've been nice to have had some notes as to what made The Rolling Stones record Commit A Crime, Mannish Boy, etc. I just feel that such a set has a thin-gruel content issue, when it shouldn't have.

In comparison the Chicago Stones blues tribute, with Buddy Guy, Mick and Keith, explains itself rather well. Likewise, the other blues tribute to the Stones with Johnny Copeland, Luther Allison, Alvin Youngblood Hart etc explained the methodology.

I can remember, a few Xmas's ago, Mick Jagger appearing on a Radio 2 show wherein he explained how he loved, inter alia, Jerry Lee Lewis' version of She Even Woke Me Up to Say Goodbye, and that seemed better. It's as if we were, or are, a little short-changed as to the song selection for Confessin' The Blues.

Certainly, the notes to Blue & Lonesome do some justice as to explaining that album. Oh well, maybe I shouldn't moan, but just my thoughts for what it's worth.

opposite feeling completely, i decide to buy the thing (i already have much of the songs compiled) just because ofbthe artwork which i see immediate, precise, not realistic, with a nice touch in the tongue and lips of the man pointing loosely at the heritage of the band. brilliant work, imo

Not to mention that tongue...is that supposed to be a tongue? Or the right collar of his shirt? Either way, an awkward distraction and unnecessary.

very lively and dynamic sketch imo
love the instinctive balancing of the arms, ron knows how to draw, which is not just to make "nice" drawings, it is to give an impression, a feel. and this man does, imo
and the tongue is the tongue of course
and it is a brilliant loose reference to the band logo
if you look for bad and kitsch artwork dig for a bigger bang or steel wheels covers

agree with tomcasagranda on the liner notes instead, poor

I hear you, Schillid. You seem to know what you're talking about. My father was an artist so I have the deepest respect for the trade. You have to be schooled to be able to see the details - or the big picture.
I think Ronnie is a decent amateur though and should be judged in that manner.

Seems like the Stones are doing everything else these days in order to avoid producing a new record with fresh material. It's like procrastination - a term very well known among IORR members...
The blues is, of course, a dead format by now. Like jazz. Something for the museums. It will live on though, but on a smaller stage. For the aficionados.

Booking a Paris studio for November, three singles next year and eventually a new album + apparently touring it tell me otherwise smiling smiley
