In The Morning (2002) is a more standard blues band line-up: two guitars, bass, drums, back-up vocals. This one delivers a “real-deal” freight train boogie, called Joe’s Jump , so this reviewer found what he had been looking for. There are a couple of other notable up-tempo tunes, including If This Is Love (I’d rather have the Blues). There is also a rollicking version of 2120 South Michigan Avenue, credited to Mick Jagger and Keith Richards. This tune is one of the few-ever Rolling Stones instrumental cuts, and is credited on the Stones’ 12X5 (1964) to Nanker Phelge, a code name for the whole band (google it!). The name of this song is from the address of the legendary Chess studio in Chicago. It rocks!
