Ronnie Wood will be paying tribute to one of his musical heroes in a new live album titled Mr. Luck – A Tribute To Jimmy Reed: Live at the Royal Albert Hall. It’s due out on September 3.
The album features an array of special guests, including former Rolling Stones guitarist Mick Taylor whom Wood replaced back in 1974, along with Bobby Womack, Mick Hucknall and Paul Weller.
Recorded live at the Royal Albert Hall on 1 November 2013, Wood and his band performed 18 songs from Reed’s vast catalogue of blues classics. The album’s cover art was drawn by Wood himself.
“Jimmy Reed was one of the premier influences on the Rolling Stones and all the bands that love American blues from that era until the present day,” Wood said in a statement. “It is my honour to have the opportunity to celebrate his life and legacy with this tribute.”
