Rolling Stones and Faces guitarist, Ronnie Wood flexes his blues muscles on his new live release Mr Luck – A Tribute to Jimmy Reed: Live at the Royal Albert Hall.  The record contains 18 tracks of Jimmy Reed material recorded live at the Royal Albert Hall in 2013. Wood and his fantastic band, which just so happens to include former Stones guitarist Mick Taylor, have the time of their lives getting down on Reed’s classic blues sound and are supported by guest spots from Bobby Womack, Mick Hucknall and Paul Weller.  Wood’s enthusiasm for Jimmy Reed’s music is apparent from the get-go and that deep connection is what propels this entire show. The set is the second installment in Wood’s intensely personal trilogy of live albums that pay tribute to his lifelong musical inspirations. The first part, Mad Lad, celebrated the songs of Chuck Berry, another of Wood’s heroes. Between that and this new effort, we get to experience some of the building blocks that stacked up into Wood’s incredible career.

Ronnie Wood is, of course, one of rock music’s legendary guitarists known for his decades of work in The Rolling Stones and his time in the group Faces with vocalist Rod Stewart. He also played bass in The Jeff Beck Group. He’s a two-time Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee with the Stones and Faces, along with being a remarkable visual artist who created the cover of this album.
