The Best Of Bill Wyman’s Rhythm Kings – Volume 2

The companion volume to the hugely successful first 'Best Of', with yet more excellent highlights from 15 years of bassist/bandleader Bill Wyman’s post-Stones musical project, sampling six key albums.

Includes standout tracks from studio and stage, where the Rhythm Kings are in their element.

Numerous special guests include Albert Lee, Georgie Fame, Procol Harum’s Gary Brooker and former colleague Mick Taylor on slide guitar ('Can't Get My Rest At Night').

A re-cut of the Stones' 'Melody' - originally from the 'Black And Blue' album on which Bill appeared - features Eric Clapton, while George Harrison guests on 'Love Letters'. A lively cover of the Beatles' 'Taxman' features Australian guitar virtuoso Tommy Emmanuel.

Expertly remastered by Jon Astley (whose past credits include recordings by the Who, Led Zeppelin, George Harrison and many others). Superb sound - the best in the business!

    2. A true legend in his own time. The music created and sometimes re-created by Wyman and his band is red hot blast…..
