Moonlight Mile

YC Dec 2015A well-known critic wrote, “Most bands play country blues as rock and roll; the Rolling Stones play rock and roll as country blues.” A few years back, visiting family in Alberta for the holidays, I tried out my brother’s new cigar box guitar. This Stones gem emerged. Swampy Delta slide in the chill of December. Craig and I built on the simple instrumental track and offer this as the last 1st Listen of 2015. Spin it on the next full moon, slated for December 25.
