ROLLING STONES UNRELEASED: STEWED AND KEEFED (1964)

Also known as: Brian’s Blues
Written by: Nanker/Phelge
Recorded: Chess Studios, Chicago, USA, June 10-11; Feb. 4 1964

From Martin Elliott’s book THE ROLLING STONES COMPLETE RECORDING SESSIONS 1962-2012:
The first Chicago session was to produce a number of unreleased tracks, of which this was one. This was not necessarily because the product was below standard, but perhaps due to the prolific output of a group who were on their first blues pilgrimage. It’s an instrumental which features two duelling instrumentalists, bar room shuffling Ian Stewart and the lazy blues guitar of Keith Richards. Like the Mississippi, the track meanders inexorably to the blues delta. Stewed and Keefed is undoubtedly a worthy jam track, typical of the laid-back ambience achieved at Chess. Brian Jones was unwell and missed the session, hence his ‘blues’ in the alternative title.
