The Rolling Stones - Jumping Jack Flash - Through The Past Darkly (Big Hits, Vol. 2)

"…I was born in a cross-fire hurricane
And I howled at my ma in the driving rain,
But it’s all right now, in fact, it’s a gas!
But it’s all right.  I’m Jumpin’ Jack Flash,
It’s a Gas!  Gas!  Gas!…”

Genesis - That’s All

This reminds me of my favourite Patrick Bateman quote: “I also think Phil Collins works best within the confines of the group, than as a solo artist, and I stress the word artist. This is Sussudio, a great, great song, a personal favorite.”

This isn’t Sussudio but it’s a bad ass tune.

  • Testify Parts 1 & 2
  • By: The Isley Brothers
  • 179 Plays

The Isley Brothers - Testify Parts 1 & 2 (with Jimi Hendrix) - (1964)

This is one of two tracks by The Isley Brothers to feature Jimi Hendrix (at that time still known as Jimmy Hendricks). Ronald Isley on the vocals. This isn’t the correct album cover but I thought Jimi would fit in nicely if I had the capabilities to photoshop him in.

Jimi has a few very good but short solos on the track especially about 2/3rds in.

"… Music is blowing my mind …"

It certainly is.
