Confessin’ The Blues – In Collaboration With The Rolling Stones

31 July 2018

The Rolling Stones have always been the biggest champions of the blues, even taking their name from the Muddy Waters’ track ‘Rollin’ Stone’ – so who better to have hand-picked a special compilation album of the music that has inspired them throughout their career.

Confessin’ The Blues collects together the greatest ever bluesmen, such as Chuck Berry, B.B King, Howlin’ Wolf, John Lee Hooker, Elmore James and Muddy Waters and provides a perfect education to the genre. The tracklisting on the various formats has been chosen by The Rolling Stones, in collaboration with BMG & Universal and will be released on November 9th 2018.

Our very own Ronnie Wood hand painted the cover art, which depicts the raw passion and emotion the blues artists channeled into their music.

As such big supporters of the genre, the band and BMG have decided that 10% of BMG’s net receipts* from the sale of this album (with a minimum of £0.65 (2CD) / £1.25 (2LP) / £3.00 (Bookpack) UK pounds sterling) will be donated to Willie Dixon’s Blues Heaven Foundation (Registered as a 501(c) (3) non-profit organisation in the United States.)

This looks like a very nice box set. thumbs up

For those who might be interested, I created a playlist on Spotify with the tracks listed above. I'm not sure if it's 100% accurate, but at least it makes a nice blues compilation. smiling smiley [open.spotify.com]

Looking forward to the release and it’s pleasing to see that a percentage of the sales will go to charity, I believe the Willie Dixon Foundation.

I’d personally like to see the charitable share spread on a more local basis. After all charity begins at home, I’m in England and the Stones are an English band. I respect the work of the Willie Dixon Foundation and it’s based at 2120 South Michigan Avenue but I’m sure there are other deserving causes throughout the music world that could benefit.

What a great collection of blues tunes. Regarding the art cards, very nice. They remind me of the "heroes Of The Blues" and other musical genre cards done by R Crumb, the artist who gave us Mister Natural, Fritz The Cat and many other what were then considered counter-culture works.

Cards are the work of Christoph Mueller:

Confessin’ The Blues

I was asked recently to create six art prints to accompany an upcoming blues compilation curated by non other but The Rolling Stones!

Each print illustrates a classic Blues song, which gave me the chance to combine my love for the music with my love for the period and its design, look, and feel. And due to my obsession with vintage fountain pens, even my drawing tools were period-accurate.

This project has been a great joy to work on and I am looking forward to its release in November!

The art cards are part of the “Confessin’ The Blues” 5×10” Vinyl bookpack and can pre-ordered now. 10% of BMG’s net receipts from the sale of this album will be donated to Willie Dixon’s Blues Heaven Foundation.

This looks cool, but the Buddy Guy song from 1991 is completely out of place with the years the other tracks are all from. Wonder why they didn’t use one of Buddy’s great recordings from the same era vs one from his 90s resurgence.

Well as a blues collector I already have all those songs on complete albums. So this is like buying a mixed tape I could make myself.

Yes tempting as the vinyl and inner artwork cards are very nice ....but will have to pass on the large vinyl bookpack.
Nice of them to break it down to vol. I &II 2LP versions, and also the 2 CD version, but still will have to to pass.
As for the charity aspect, nice of them to donate 10%, but wondering what percentage the Stones themselves will pocket.

Donate direct to the Willie Dixon’s Blues Heaven Foundation right here: DONATE TO THE BLUES FOUNDATION

Lots of positives for the band on this offering.

From honoring some of their mentors and heroes, to donating proceeds to a very worthwhile cause. Good on 'em.
And it's not just their fans who will support the good cause, even some of their most devout critics are posting direct links to the charitable organization that they wouldn't even be aware of without the band. Win Win... Nice.

Don't be so quick with your snide assumption MisterDDDD - I've donated to this foundation for years, and so should you!
Having seen Willie live in the '80s in small club in L.A., and having visited the Blues Foundation in Chicago which is at the former Chess studios.
I don't have to buy this package from the Stones in order to feel good and make them richer, I donate direct to the source
Without the blues, there would be no Stones. God bless Willie Dixon. thumbs up

Don't be so quick to take it so personal.
Just odd/rude to criticize/whine about their charitable contributions,

For most, but you do you.

Well when you say "some of their most devout critics are posting direct links" how else am I supposed to respond?
I did say it was nice of them to donate 10% to the cause (maybe you missed that part?), but am also wondering how much they'll pocket while they're at it.
If you consider that rude and/or whining, I guess you can't be helped and there's no point in discussing it with you further.
Be sure to donate to the cause, even if you have to fill the Stones pockets while you're at it - it's a great cause. thumbs up

Perhaps I'm being a bit thick, but why would the Stones pocket any dosh from this project?
As far as I can see only Ronnie would expect (but he may waive) any income...due to his art work.
