Karl Dallas, Rock's Backpages Audio, 1975

The Father of British Blues talks about splitting from skiffle in the late '50s; working with such luminaries as Chris Barber and Cyril Davies; his band Blues Incorporated which, at various times, included Jack Bruce, Ginger Baker, Mick Jagger and Charlie Watts; meeting Brian Jones and wet-nursing the early Rolling Stones... and talks at length about where the Rolling Stones go post Mick-Taylor.
