Dancing around the front room like a........

One of my favourite SF tracks; it's just a pity it's so short (though this alternative version does seem a little longer!!)

I think this version originally came out on a French ep along with Come on Children and Watcha Gonna do about it.
And my soul has been psychedelicized.

This is well worth a watch. If you're a Dusty fan that is.

I didn't know she'd done a version of Tina Britt's 'The Real Thing'; I've not heard that before. 

Agree with Rafa, she'd got a great soulful voice as quite a number of tracks on this compilation confirm.

Pretty sure Dusty didn't actually record it though I could be wrong. Good version though. Nice couple of covers of Doodlin and That's how Heartaches are Made are on her second album.

Inspired by a book on Brian Jones I've just finished,  I'm listening to Aftermath and On Air back to back.

"Aftermath" was possibly Brian Jones' major achievement with the Stones, before drugs, lack of self-confidence, personal demons and erratic behavior took the better of him.

Mike, you should check out this one, possibly THE jazz reissue of the year (so far):

Oddly, in spite of the vinyl's (double, mind you) stratospheric price tag, and the CD not being cheap either, when I got wind of the release, I looked for it at Amazon Spain and unbelievably the CD was on pre-sale for just 6 !! Coming my way now, current cheapest price is 16 (and that's the CD, LP is close to 60   :o

The album shows off. Brian's talent but it certainly has its flaws. High and Dry, Flight 505 and Dontcha Bother Me are very average.

Well, its almost wine o clock so at the moment not entirely sure what I'll be listening to but I'll probably start off with some You Tube videos.
Starting with this, probably my fav Stones 45

That's the Stones pushing the boundaires after their unsurpassable, awesome string of 45s of '65 and '66 vintage. I think it was John Savage in his essential 1966 who commented on that single as being almost a step too far towards chaos and debauchery, the Stones at their most perverse/will-we-get-away-with-it? before returning to chart-friendlier fare with "Let's Spend the Night Together" (controversial itself, but a much more commercial proposition). It was their "Tomorrow Never Knows" moment, only in a 45, to add insult to injury.

To me, once discounted the shock factor, "Have you Seen..." sounds somewhat flawed, like a too loaded train derailing. My favourite Stones' 45 of 1966 will always be "19th Nervous Breakdown", the peak of their mysoginist phase.

And regarding "Aftermath", I think if it would have dispensed with some songs (among them, the endless "Going Home"), especially those which refer squarely to their r&b earlier phase, it would have been closer to be their masterpiece. Still is a hell of an album.

Aftermath could've been a really great album, like Revolver but I suspect they knew what they were doing at the time.
Breakdown is certainly a brilliant single but for some reason, Have you Seen Your Mother will always do it for me. Still don't know who are playing brass on the track.
