As well as being the biggest band in the world, The Rolling Stones have always been the biggest champions of the blues, so who better to curate a compilation of the music that inspired them throughout their career? Confessin' The Blues I & II provide a perfect education to the genre. Label proceeds from this release are being donated to Willie Dixon's Blues Heaven Foundation.

Confessin' The Blues collects together the greatest bluesmen ever and provides a perfect education to the genre. The tracklisting has been chosen by The Rolling Stones, in collaboration with BMG and Universal. The Rolling Stones have long been supporters of the Blues from before the start of their career right through to their 2016 album, Blue & Lonesome, which featured their interpretations of the classics, many of which appear in their original versions here on Confessin' The Blues.

Confessin' The Blues includes tracks by the biggest Blues pioneers including Howlin' Wolf, John Lee Hooker, Elmore James, Muddy Waters, Chuck Berry, Big Bill Broonzy and Robert Johnson. All of these artists had an impact on the nascent Rolling Stones, be they influencing Keith's guitar licks or Mick's vocals and lyrics.

`If you don't know the blues... there's no point in picking up the guitar and playing rock and roll or any other form of popular music' - Keith Richards
