RHYTHM KINGS - Struttin' Our Stuff (1977) thumbupthumbupthumbup

While the former Rolling Stones bassist's prior solo releases were rather weedy singer-songwriter efforts, Struttin' Our Stuff is a pleasant diversion that's more along the lines of Wyman's '80s side-combo Willy and the Poorboys. On Struttin' Our Stuff, the ex-Stone teams up with an impressive assortment of famous friends for an impressively played but enjoyably casual set of rootsy originals and classic covers, including a soulful reworking of the '70s Stones tune "Melody." In addition to Wyman's trademark bass pulse and occasional vocals, the album features guest guitarists Eric Clapton, Peter Frampton, and Albert Lee, frequent Stones sideman Bobby Keys on sax, and Procol Harum's Gary Brooker on piano. Guest vocals come from English R&B great Georgie Fame, Ace/Squeeze/Mike and the Mechanics singer Paul Carrack, and talented newcomer Beverly Skeete.

Digitally remastered edition of this 1997 album from the former Rolling Stones bassist and his Rhythm Kings. Struttin' Our Stuff was the band's debut album and is packed with lively numbers that capture the spirit of the Blues from different eras. Among the dozen tracks are jive tunes like 'Jitterbug Boogie' and slow Blues such as 'Bad To Be Alone'. There are also 'covers' of classic hits including Creedence Clearwater Revival's 'Green River' and the R&B standard 'Tobacco Road'. The band clearly loves playing together and features an all-star cast of seasoned players, notably Georgie Fame on organ and vocals. Among the guitarists, Eric Clapton, Albert Lee and Peter Frampton contribute some hot solos, and there is an impressive roster of brass players and backing vocalists. - amazon.com
