On April 7th, 1962, three young Englishmen obsessed with American blues met for the first time, at the Ealing Jazz Club in London.

To ease into the new place, the Stones decided to knock out a version of Little Walter's "Blue and Lonesome" and it sounded good enough that the band decided to cut a few more covers, winding up with a full album of Chicago blues in a few days. The Stones haven't worked at such swift speed in decades - not since the early '60s, when they were churning out two albums a year - and much of the appeal of Blue & Lonesome lies in its casualness: by being tossed off, the album highlights how the Stones play together as a band, blending instinct and skill.

The Rolling Stones were never really a thinking band. A shrewd one, for sure, and one of the very best. But they earned their title as one of rock's all-time greatest by following their guts and playing what came naturally, not by overthinking the process. That self-conscious analyzation made so many of their records from the mid-'70s onward sound so labored, as they hammered out detail after detail. The latest, Blue & Lonesome, was recorded in just three days, with little planning or overthinking. Granted, it's a covers album filled with the type of blues songs the band cut its teeth on more than 50 years ago, but that doesn't take away from its spitfire appeal. The Stones haven't made an album this virile in decades. It certainly helps that the core quartet (along with some help from friends like Eric Clapton and Chuck Leavell) sounds like its off the clock.
