Rolling Stones, The/Stones Recording in Chicago


I wonder what the Stones thought of Chess Records Studio compared to Englands studios ?

Hello Peter,
Well I believe they really loved the experience of recording there. I can't remember any word from them comparing Chess to British studios, but we all know how much they loved to work in the place their musical heroes did, not to mention the fact meeting them there occasionally. British studios weren't bad at all, but then they weren't much about the Blues sound at the time, and that's what the Stones were looking for and eventually found at Chess in Chicago. I guess that pretty much answers your question.
I'd also recommend you to read the following article:
Hope this helps.

Stonely yours,

Rolling Stones, The

I am able to answer all kinds of questions focused on the life and times of The Rolling Stones and their recording career, including accurate information about their huge catalog of unreleased songs and live takes, as well as collectors' items. However, I'm not the one to provide quotes or estimates about how much collectibles may be worth. Follow me on Twitter: @StonesData


I have been a Rolling Stones non-stop fan and collector for more than 30 years now, and I've seen them live over 50 times around the world. I also got the chance to talk to them on several occasions. Although I own a very nice personal collection, I mostly consider myself a researcher and archivist, as it's information/facts about The Greatest Rock'n'Roll Band in the World I'm mostly experienced in. Last but not least, as a Stones collector myself, it's always good to get in touch with other Stones fans/collectors from around the world that can be interested in trading/swapping items.
