The Rolling Stones - Chess Chicago 1964
The producer was Andrew Oldham for all songs and the engineer was Ron Malo at Chess and Dave Hassinger at RCA. According to the Swinging Pigs cover Ian Stewart was on piano along with the full Stones line up of the time.
The Rolling Stones' first US tour, in June 1964, was, in Bill Wyman's words, "a disaster". When we arrived, we didn't have a hit record (there) or anything going for us." When the band appeared on Dean Martin's TV variety show The Hollywood Palace, Martin mocked both their hair and their performance. During the tour they recorded for two days at Chess Studios in Chicago, meeting many of their most important influences, including Muddy Waters. These sessions included what would become the Rolling Stones' first number one hit in the UK, their cover of Bobby and Shirley Womack's "It's All Over Now".
The Chess recordings demonstrate the bands blues influences and their ability to do justice to the songs they clearly enjoyed performing before their song writing skills had fully developed.
