Various Artists - The Devil's Music Keith Richard's Personal Compilation of Blues,Soul And R&B Classics (Uncut 2002 12)

The title says it all: Keith Richard's Personal Compilation of Blues,Soul And R&B Classics! This CD came out with Uncut magazine on November 2002 (December's Issue). Uncut's still a good mag. For a period of 3-4 years, i was buying it every month but i lost interest since I don't dig that much Dylan and they cover every side of his life every two months...Anyway, that's a VERY GOOD compilation indeed! One of the best you were able to catch along with a mag. How many times you bought a magazine and the included CD isn't just to put up your bottles of beer? It supposed to be compiled by Keef himself (on the issue says clearly it was Keef's selections) but on the inside liners i read "compiled by Roy Carr and Allan Jones"...And it has no Chuck Berry for Christ's sake! But it could have been easily Keef's selections. Twenty six classics in every meaning of the word and not only "Blues,Soul & R&B" but as well country and reggae.
I decide to go on this this time for two reasons:
1st) As i said earlier it's a very good comp, contains undisputed classics and it's a good way for a young lad to start searching for Amos Milburn, Ike Turner, Jimmy Rogers or Howlin' Wolf.
2nd) A friend of this blog mailed me and asked me if i got it. He told me that many assholes tryin' sell it now in very HIGH prices not only on eBay but on many other sites (Amazon included) and i wonder why the wiseacres of the major labels still go hunting for bloggers and not on these blood suckers. I mean, it supposed to not be sold this thing OK? I noticed that even the guys at IORR fan club wants it. So here it is. Ripped at 320 Kbps as usual.

The Devil's Music


  1. nice post - the clarence garlow "bon temps roulet" number is one of my faves for years (even if i didn't find a nice 45 of it yet).
    thank you for sharing !

  2. Don't bother frankai, Keef had one.

  3. Wow...just stumbled into yr blog from TWZ, and it's grrrrreat!

    One tiiiiiiiny gripe, and that's SendSpace putting a cap on my daily free downloads. I've already got $$$ flowing into the usual services, and I can't afford another....wish you gave us options, but hey, beggars can't be choosers!

  4. Thanks a lot DefChef! I know what you're saying and that's why i use SendSpace. I don't even got an account myself there... I just picked on this cause always got FREE slots for most countries at least, all over the world. If you guys believe there's a better host service out there, just lemme know. I even recently dropped my RS account!

  5. thanks all from greece for this excellent gift

  6. Hi Is this album available to download anywhere

  7. For a few days only, I've put Keith's mix up here to download. Starts off with Keith doing some acoustic blues on French TV, just to throw the copyright bloodhounds off the scent...

  8. ~sigh~ Any chance of another link for this?
