Next week Eagle Rock will release two very special vinyl albums. The first being a special edition 2LP of Muddy Waters And The Rolling Stones Live At The Checkerboard Lounge Chicago 1981, and the second, The Rolling Stones Some Girls: Live In Texas '78 Vinyl Special Edition 2LP.

The vinyl also comes with CD / DVD hooplah, I'm not interested in that ...... The vinyl is what's important here. Each set is contains an 180g vinyl in a three-panel gatefold sleeve.

Years after Some Girls: Live In Texas was filmed at the Will Rogers Memorial Center in Fort Worth, Texas in 78' Ronnie Wood summed the gig up in saying " it was straight-ahead garage rock, hardly a stage-set, no smoke, no big lights, like the Stones going punk"  What is not love about a coupla pieces of vinyl showcasing that magic? Nothing not to love I tells yer!

Live At The Checkerboard Lounge Chicago 1981 is a precious recording taken from Buddy Guys blues bar when the Stones came to town. Muddy, clearly in charge, invites the Stones one-by-one to join the party on stage. Vinyl is the only way to listen to this kind of classic soul. Mixed and mastered by Bob Clearmountain, this concert is a rare gem of rock 'n' roll and blues history.
