Stoned A Psych Tribute To The Rolling Stones Cleopatra 2015

Stoned - A Psych Tribute To The Rolling Stones

A mind blowing psychedelic tribute to one of the greatest rock and roll bands of all time!

The Rolling Stones are rock and roll pioneers that are of course heavily based in the blues influences of such legends as Muddy Waters. So...can a space rock tribute release possible capture the raw if not raucous spirit of these legendary icons of rock? In a word, yes! Psychedelic music has been removed from a great many musical equations yet this particular collection allows for a triumphant return from the rock and roll witness protection program with some amazing covers of classic tunes including "Satisfaction" along with "Under My Thumb" and "It's Only Rock and Roll." Plenty of attitude and an amazing ability to show that great song writing transcends genre and the expected norms of were a Stones tribute release should go. Expect the unexpected!
