2120 South Michigan Ave.

Jimmy Joe:

Great post on Hey Bo Diddley/ What’d I Say.  The BTW comment is great!  I had no idea there was a Rolling Stone instrumental called 2120 South Michigan Ave.  Now, this is my favorite band of all time; but you did see them at Altamont Speedway in 1969.  I did a little research and apparently this cut appeared on 12 X 5 as an often sought after bootleg.  In the Keith Richards Biography “Life”  there is a long chapter on the bands visit to Chess on their first American tour. He talks about recording at Chess.  Their first #1 hit was recorded at Chess:  Bobby Womack’s “It’s All Over Now”.  What a great song that was!  So without further ado, I present to you the only instrumental that I know of recorded by the Rolling Stones at Chess Records in 1965.  2120 South Michigan Ave.30 – 2120 South Michigan Avenue

Thank you Jimmy Joe!

About John

I taught myself how to play the piano and read music when I was 9 years old. I've been been consumed by music ever since. I majored in Piano performance in College and I still play, although not as well as when I had time to practice 4 -6 hours per day. This blog is about music. Music is the sound track of our lives. All it take is one song, one composition; and we are transported across time and space. I think it was Beethoven that said: "Music is the landscape of the soul."

    Your site was tweeted by a friend yesterday evening. Figured I’d give it a look. Best decision ever.
