It’s a one hour five minute mix that contains Rolling Stones’ cover versions, remixes, re-edits, live recordings, bootlegs and samples - primarily from their 60s and 70s golden age. It’s been the most intricate mix I’ve ever made. I’m pleased with it too. I’ve tried to encapsulate their magic, their satanic majesty, their influences, and the way their own influence continues to reverberate from the 1960s and through into the 21st century.
Here’s what you’ll find on it (though within each track you’ll discover samples of the group being interviewed, old Stones advertisements, Stones documentaries, and other fun interesting stuff)…..

Beta Hector - Angie
Ry Cooder - Get Away

I saw Martin Scorsese’s ‘Hugo 3D’ yesterday. Cinematic perfection. It seemed to me that every frame had been carefully considered. The cast are universally wonderful and it’s a moving, funny, exhilarating film, that’s an imaginative history lesson in the form of a detective story. A masterpiece.
