JJF + Child Of The Moon

JJF, Child of the Moon - The Rolling Stones

ABKCO Music & Records just released two new lyric videos of “Jumpin’ Jack Flash” and and its relatively obscure B-Side “Child of the Moon

Both tracks are released as lyric videos and as newly remastered tracks digitally on all streaming platforms by twelve-time Grammy-winning mastering engineer Bob Ludwig.

Quote from ABCKO:

“With ‘Jumpin’ Jack Flash’ being among the greatest Rock ‘n Roll singles of all time we knew we had to create a visual that somehow matched the swagger and excitement of the track,” stated music video directors Tom Readdy and Lucy Dawkins of London-based creative design studio Yes Please Productions. “With that guitar riff and Jagger’s exceptional searing vocal we set out to create animations that hit and emphasized every beat, guitar part and syllable sung. The simplicity of the color palette, along with rough, hand drawn elements all come together to create an energetic visual to accompany the joyful rush of adrenaline that is ‘Jumpin’ Jack Flash’.”

[…]

Tom Readdy and Lucy Dawkins of Yes Please Productions explained, “Our lyric video for ‘Child Of The Moon’ is inspired by the natural landscape and elements in the promo video for the track from 1968 directed by Michael Lindsay-Hogg. The song was unfinished during the sessions for Their Satanic Majesties Request and often seen as the postscript to the psychedelic era of the band. We leant into this vibe to create ‘60s inspired bespoke illustrations of flowers, leaves and patterns that grow in and around the ornate typeface. This typeface incidentally featured on an original 7″ picture sleeve for ‘Jumpin’ Jack Flash’/‘Child Of The Moon’.”

Brown Sugar live from Rio!

Brown Sugar - Copacabana Rolling Stones Bobby Keys

The fucking greatest band on earth just released 5:39 minutes of Brown Sugar glory!

Played, filmed and recorded at Rio de Janeiro’s Copacabana Beach, you can see and hear The Rolling Stones back in those glory days when Bobby Keyes was still a member of that rat-pack. (Hey Karl [Denson]: absolutely no blame on you! You are indeed and truly in charge of Bobby’s spot in this band!!

So just come on in, get your rocks off and dance to that beat of that gold coast slave ship, bound for cotton fields …

And don’t forget: the next Stones tour is definitely in the making! After all, Alice has scheduled dates for a tour (Cooper, that is), as have the Black Crowes!

Do you really believe, the Stones are going to miss this possibillity of playing live once more and maybe for the last time?

I don’t think so!

Ronnie meets Rod

Ronnie, Sally, Rod and Penny enjoy some hugs!

Our dear Ronnie has again surfaced and enjoyed a hug by Rod Steward and Penny

After the Covid “no-go” of social meetings or even hugging, Ronnie and Sally enjoyed a few hugs when they met old mate Rod Steward and his wife Penny on last Monday night when restricktions were loosend.

The Daily Mail has more on this, if you like.

As for Ronnie’s hair: either he has a new look or his last cancer-battle left some mark. What do you think? And what’s about those shoes Rod wears? 🙂
Any comments?

There’s stories about the album (1) the Muscle Shoals (2), the mobile studio (3), the logo (4), the artwork (5), the actual release of the album (6), the lead singe Brown sugar (7), Wild Horses (8) and the album tracks (9)

There’s a lot more to see and hear, so just go there an give it another listen! A nice site done in technical perspective, too, by the way.
