This signed limited edition silkscreen print by Sir Peter Blake was published in 2011 and features the album cover artwork from Boogie For Stu. The album Boogie For Stu is a tribute to Ian Stewart, a pianist and founding member of the Rolling Stones who died of a sudden heart attack in 1985. A portrait of Stewart in oils by Sir Peter Blake was commissioned for the album artwork and a small edition of 100 silkscreen prints of the portrait was published, 10 of which were gifted to the artists who performed on the album. The album was dreamt up and produced by fellow pianist Ben Waters, a member of The A, B, C and D of Boogie Woogie. It was released in 2011, near the 25th anniversary of Stewart's death. Boogie For Stu ended up featuring some incredible talent whom Ian Stewart had worked with, and the album is named after the track Boogie With Stu which he had recorded with Led Zeppelin. The album also includes Bob Dylan’s Watchin' The River Flow featuring Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts, Ronnie Wood and Bill Wyman. Boogie For Stu is a worthy addition to Blake's outstanding portfolio of album cover art prints, and the beautiful editions of Sgt Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band, Sweet Child and Stanley Road. CCA Galleries have donated £100 to the British Heart Foundation for every print sold.
