A Rolling Stones discography

https://i0.wp.com/www.courtenaysfineart.com/investment_opportunities/rolling_stones_signed.jpg
The Stones have an amazing and extensive back catalogue, and despite the odd dip, of consistently high quality too.

Second only to Dylan, in that respect.

Some amazing albums are posted here!

Rather oddly posted, I must say, by the original poster! But I’m sure you’ll work it out!

Jagger introduces John Lennon, Keith Richards, Eric Clapton and Mitch Mitchel


Yer Blues, John … Yer Blues, John … Yer Blues, John !!
From the Stones infamous “The Rolling Stones Rock and Roll Circus” film project back in 1968!

Mick Jagger shows why he never became a decent actor and with a terrible yankee accent interviews Lennon as the introduction of supergroup The Dirty Mac.

Lennon introduces himself as “Winston Leg-Thigh.” !

The entertaining banter between Jagger and Lennon illustrates their mutual friendship and admiration. Lennon was probably closer to the Stones at this point than he was to some of his Beatle chums!

The all-star Dirty Mac cast are;

  • John Lennon from the beatles
  • Keef Richards from the Rolling Stones
  • Eric Clapton from the then defunct Cream
  • Mitch Mitchell from The Jimi Hendrix Experience

John and The Dirty Mac then go on to perform the great song Yer Blues, from the Beatles greatest LP, the White Album.

The Yer Blues lyrics are excellent – kind of Flower-power meets Robert Johnson meets Sam Beckett meets Albert Camus! Interestingly, they are somewhat prophetic regarding the impending death of the Beatles (Even hate my rock ‘n’ roll … etc)

Also interesting is the explicit reference to “Ballad of a Thin Man” in the lyrics “I feel so suicidal, just like Dylan’s Mr. Jones”!

Some details about the show here from Business Wire

In 1968, The Rolling Stones and some of the top British rock acts of the day came together in London to film what would become a legendary show The Rolling Stones Rock and Roll Circus.

The Rolling Stones Rock and Roll Circus was originally conceived as a BBC TV special. The show was filmed before a live audience at Intertel VTR Services Limited TV studios in North London in 1968 but it never aired, remaining virtually unseen by the general public.

The Rolling Stones Rock and Roll Circus centers on the original line up of the “World’s Greatest Rock and Roll Band” – Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Brian Jones, Bill Wyman and Charlie Watts (with Nicky Hopkins and Rocky Dijon) – who serve as both the show’s hosts and featured attraction, performing six Stones classics-to-be including “Jumping Jack Flash,” “Parachute Woman,” “No Expectations,” “You Can’t Always Get What You Want,” “Sympathy For The Devil” and “Salt of The Earth.”

The Rolling Stones Rock and Roll Circus also includes full length musical performances by some of the biggest British bands of the era including The Who, Jethro Tull, Taj Mahal, Marianne Faithfull, Yoko Ono, and The Dirty Mac – a group that was the first musical context in which John Lennon performed before an audience outside The Beatles. The Dirty Mac was Eric Clapton (lead guitar), The Rolling Stones’ own Keith Richards (bass) and Mitch Mitchell of the Jimi Hendrix Experience (drums) with Lennon on guitar and vocals.

A mirthful conversation between Jagger and Lennon to introduce The Dirty Mac finds them referring to each other as “Winston” and “Michael” with Jagger affecting a convincingly flat American accent and Lennon referring to himself as “Winston Leg-Thigh.” The Rolling Stones Rock and Roll Circus was directed by pioneering music video director Michael Lindsay-Hogg.

Yes I’m lonely wanna die
Yes I’m lonely wanna die
If I ain’t dead already
Ooh girl you know the reason why

In the morning wanna die
In the evening wanna die
If I ain’t dead already
Ooh girl you know the reason why

My mother was of the sky
My father was of the earth
But I am of the universe
And you know what it’s worth
I’m lonely wanna die
If I ain’t dead already
Ooh girl you know the reason why

The eagle picks my eye
The worm he licks my bone
I feel so suicidal
Just like Dylan’s Mr. Jones
Lonely wanna die
If I ain’t dead already
Ooh girl you know the reason why

Black cloud crossed my mind
Blue mist round my soul
Feel so suicidal
Even hate my rock ‘n’ roll
Wanna die yeah wanna die
If I ain’t dead already
Ooh girl you know the reason why

(Lennon/McCartney)

Jagger & Springsteen & Others – Satisfaction


All star jam of this stone cold Stones classic!

Mick Jagger, Bruce Springsteen, Bob Dylan, John Fogerty… and many many more!

This took place at the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame Awards on 20 January 1988 at the Waldorf Astoria Hotel, New York.

I can’t get no satisfaction

I can’t get no satisfaction

‘Cause I try and I try and I try and I try

I can’t get no, I can’t get no

When I’m drivin’ in my car

And that man comes on the radio

He’s tellin’ me more and more

About some useless information

Supposed to fire my imagination

I can’t get no, oh no no no

Hey hey hey, that’s what I say

I can’t get no satisfaction

I can’t get no satisfaction

‘Cause I try and I try and I try and I try

I can’t get no, I can’t get no

When I’m watchin’ my TV

And that man comes on to tell me

How white my shirts can be

But he can’t be a man ’cause he doesn’t smoke

The same cigarrettes as me

I can’t get no, oh no no no

Hey hey hey, that’s what I say

I can’t get no satisfaction

I can’t get no girl reaction

‘Cause I try and I try and I try and I try

I can’t get no, I can’t get no

When I’m ridin’ round the world

And I’m doin’ this and I’m signing that

And I’m tryin’ to make some girl

Who tells me baby better come back later next week

‘Cause you see I’m on losing streak

I can’t get no, oh no no no

Hey hey hey, that’s what I say

I can’t get no, I can’t get no

I can’t get no satisfaction

No satisfaction, no satisfaction, no satisfaction

Jagger pays tribute to Bo Diddley

function syncRoadBlock(src) { BBC.adverts.empCompanionResponse(src); };

Singer Mick Jagger has paid tribute to singer-guitarist Bo Diddley as an “enormous force in music” and “a big influence on the Rolling Stones”.

Jagger said the US rock ‘n’ roll pioneer, who has died at the age of 79, was “a wonderful, original musician”.

US blues legend BB King was among other stars to honour Diddley. King said his legacy would “live on forever”.

Diddley, who was known for his homemade square guitar, dark glasses and black hat, died of heart failure in Florida.

This royal shape shifter continues to influence four generations of musicians on a daily basis

Robert Plant

He had a heart attack in August 2007, three months after suffering a stroke which affected his ability to speak.

Jagger, whose band recorded cover versions of Mona and Crackin’ Up, said: “He was very generous to us in our early years and we learned a lot from him.

“We will never see his like again.”

King, 82, said his Grammy-winning contemporary was “a music pioneer and legend with a unique style”.

“We always had a good time when we played together,” he added.

Led Zeppelin singer Robert Plant said Diddley’s “voice and relentless, glorious anthems echo down through my years”.

Without him, the history of music would not have developed as it has

Singer Richard Hawley

“This royal shape shifter continues to influence four generations of musicians on a daily basis,” he added.

And Neil Portnow, chief of Grammy organisers the Recording Academy, praised “one of rock ‘n’ roll’s true pioneers”.

In 1997, his 1955 song Bo Diddley was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame while, a year later, he was awarded the Grammy lifetime achievement award.

“He leaves an indelible mark on American music and culture and our deepest sympathies go out to his family, friends and fans,” Mr Portnow said.

“The Bo Diddley beat surely will continue on.”

‘Myth created’

Other stars to pay tribute to Diddley include Guns N’ Roses guitarist Slash, The Strokes guitarist Albert Hammond Jr and UK singer Richard Hawley.

The Rolling Stones

Hawley told BBC 6 Music: “Without him there wouldn’t be any music, the kind of history of music would not have developed as it has.”

And Slash told nme.com: “He’s a huge hero of mine and the fact that he knew who I was was a huge compliment.

“Bo Diddley created a myth that was uniquely his own.

“An entire rhythm is owed to just one guy and that’s pretty rare.”

Diddley rose to fame in 1955 when he topped the R&B charts with Bo Diddley.

His other hits include Who Do You Love, Before You Accuse Me, and Mona.

His so-called “Bo Diddley beat” influenced rockers from Buddy Holly, to Bruce Springsteen and U2.

Hells Angels plotted to kill Mick Jagger

Interesting piece here from the Telegraph UK about some peril faced by Sir Mick Jagger from some Hells Angels (aka HA) named Larry, Curly and Moe way back in the day.

Apparently, this slice of surrealism occurred after the infamous Altamont debacle in 1969 when some Hells Angels killed a black kid – who, when trouble started kicking off ,allegedly drew a gun – in the audience at the Stones gig.

The key question on this Altamont fiasco has always been, why the f*ck did the Stones have Hells Angels involved with security at the gig? If that’s not teeing up disaster, nothing is.

If they wanted fat, dirty, hairy, smelly, dumb security providers, they should have hired a troupe of trained Grizzlies!

Anyway, some HA (as in “Ha Ha Ha”!) morons rather insanely switched from souped-up gay bikes to boats in order to assail Jagger. Did they think they were James fucking Bond?!

Worse, these morons didn’t seem to have sea legs and the story had a hilarious ending! ……

They planned the attack from the sea so they could enter his property from the garden and avoid security at the front. The boat was hit by a storm and all of the men were thrown overboard.”

HA HA HA !!

BTW … when did Jagger become a Sir … and how?

Hells Angels plotted to kill Mick Jagger

By Richard Eden
03/03/2008

http://www.telegraph.co.uk

Sir Mick Jagger has long been regarded as one of rock music’s greatest troupers, but, until now, he has been unaware of how much of a survivor he really is.

The Rolling Stones singer was the target of an assassination attempt which only failed because the boat the would-be killers were using was swamped in a storm. Details of the plot have been revealed by an FBI agent as part of a BBC series on the American crime fighting agency.

The attempt to kill Sir Mick was made by a group of Hells Angels after the infamous Altamont Speedway Free Concert in 1969, which the Rolling Stones had organised and for which the motorcycle gang reportedly provided security.

Meredith Hunter, a black 18-year-old member of the audience, was stabbed and kicked to death by a group of Hells Angels, in an attack captured on film cameras. As a result, Sir Mick allegedly refused to use their services again.

According to Mark Young, a former special agent, interviewed in BBC radio series The FBI at 100, which begins tomorrow, a boat of Hells Angels set out to take revenge on the singer at his holiday home in the Hamptons, Long Island, New York.

“The Hells Angels were so angered by Jagger’s treatment of them that they decided to kill him,” said Tom Mangold, who presents the series. “A group of them took a boat and were all tooled up and planned to attack him from the sea.

“They planned the attack from the sea so they could enter his property from the garden and avoid security at the front. The boat was hit by a storm and all of the men were thrown overboard. All survived and there was not said to have been any further attempt on Jagger’s life.”

It is understood that Sir Mick was never informed of the alleged assassination attempt. The singer has always been keen to play down any suggestion that he or anyone else working for the Rolling Stones had official dealings with the gang.

The murder at the Altamont concert in California came to be seen as the event that heralded the end of the hippie era of the “Swinging Sixties”.

Hunter’s graphic death near the stage was clearly captured on film by three separate cameras.

Footage from the documentary Gimme Shelter shows that while the Rolling Stones were ending the song Under My Thumb, Hunter, after an earlier altercation with the gang, was approaching the stage and drawing a gun.

Alan Passaro, the killer, parried the gun with his left hand and stabbed Hunter in the back with his right. The Rolling Stones were forced to interrupt their performance, but, unaware that Hunter’s stabbing was fatal, they decided to continue playing.

Passaro was arrested and tried for murder in 1972, but was acquitted after a jury concluded that he had acted in self-defence because Hunter was carrying a handgun.

Under its controversial founder and then director, J Edgar Hoover, the FBI is believed to have infiltrated the gang as part of its investigations into suspected subversive groups.

According to a number of accounts, the gang were hired to provide security at Altamont by the Rolling Stones on the advice of the rock group the Grateful Dead for $500 and free beer.

This has, however, been denied by the speedway track’s then owner, Dick Carter, and Ralph “Sonny” Barger, the leader of the group of Hells Angels who acted as bouncers.

Sir Mick was unavailable for comment in time for our deadline.

“The Hells Angels were so angered by Jagger’s treatment of them that they decided to kill him,” said Tom Mangold, who presents the series. “A group of them took a boat and were all tooled up and planned to attack him from the sea.

“They planned the attack from the sea so they could enter his property from the garden and avoid security at the front. The boat was hit by a storm and all of the men were thrown overboard. All survived and there was not said to have been any further attempt on Jagger’s life.”

It is understood that Sir Mick was never informed of the alleged assassination attempt. The singer has always been keen to play down any suggestion that he or anyone else working for the Rolling Stones had official dealings with the gang.

The murder at the Altamont concert in California came to be seen as the event that heralded the end of the hippie era of the “Swinging Sixties”.

Hunter’s graphic death near the stage was clearly captured on film by three separate cameras.

Footage from the documentary Gimme Shelter shows that while the Rolling Stones were ending the song Under My Thumb, Hunter, after an earlier altercation with the gang, was approaching the stage and drawing a gun.

Alan Passaro, the killer, parried the gun with his left hand and stabbed Hunter in the back with his right. The Rolling Stones were forced to interrupt their performance, but, unaware that Hunter’s stabbing was fatal, they decided to continue playing.

Passaro was arrested and tried for murder in 1972, but was acquitted after a jury concluded that he had acted in self-defence because Hunter was carrying a handgun.

Under its controversial founder and then director, J Edgar Hoover, the FBI is believed to have infiltrated the gang as part of its investigations into suspected subversive groups.

According to a number of accounts, the gang were hired to provide security at Altamont by the Rolling Stones on the advice of the rock group the Grateful Dead for $500 and free beer.

This has, however, been denied by the speedway track’s then owner, Dick Carter, and Ralph “Sonny” Barger, the leader of the group of Hells Angels who acted as bouncers.

Sir Mick was unavailable for comment in time for our deadline.
