Two Versions Of The Rolling Stones’ “Have You Seen Your Mother, Baby, Standing In The Shadow?” 1966 Music Video Get First Official Online Release @ Top40-Charts.com

New York, NY (Top40 Charts) The Rolling Stones and ABKCO Music & Records Inc./Universal Music, have released today the official music videos for the hit single “Have You Seen Your Mother, Baby, Standing in the Shadow?” Both versions were filmed in 1966 by director Peter Whitehead but were rejected at the time by the few outlets that would play what were then referred to as “promos” or “promotional films” of rock and roll bands. The live performance video captures the mayhem during The Rolling Stones’ September 23, 1966, performance at the Royal Albert Hall in London; while the video of the band in Drag was created using film footage of the photoshoot for the single’s back cover in Manhattan, depicting all five original members (Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Brian Jones, Bill Wyman, Charlie Watts).

A Top 10 hit on both sides of the Atlantic (UK #5; US #9), “Have You Seen Your Mother, Baby, Standing in the Shadow?” was recorded in August and September of ’66 at RCA Studios in Hollywood as well as IBC Studios in London. Released simultaneously in the US and UK 56 years ago to this day, the instrumentation on the Jagger/Richards composition includes a horn section consisting of three trumpets, put together by arranger Mike Leander (The Beatles, Marianne Faithfull, Gary Glitter, Cliff Richard, Joe Cocker and The Drifters) with piano by both Richards and Jack Nitzsche. Regarding the lyrics, Jagger told Keith Altham at the NME in 1966, “This is simply about a boy and his bird. Some songs I write are just for a laugh. Others are extensions of ideas. This is a mixture of both. You must listen to it and place your own interpretation on the lyric. There is no attempt to present a controversial ‘Mother’ theme.”

Filmmaker Peter Whitehead, who directed The Rolling Stones’ tour documentary Charlie Is My Darling – Ireland 1965 and went on to make many more music videos for the band (including “We Love You,” officially released on 4K by The Rolling Stones and ABKCO last month), captured the band at a strange moment in their tenure as a live band. The rock concert industry was still in its infancy, and security was ill-equipped at handling the throngs of screaming fans who rushed the stage at the Royal Albert Hall to grab band members mid-song, before getting pushed back into the crowd. Decades before the launch of MTV, there was no way for the general population to view this original version of the music video until it was incorporated into the documentary Heroes of Rock and Roll, narrated by Jeff Bridges and televised in early 1979.

A second version of the music video, consisting of entirely different footage shot on September 9, 1966, was also made by Whitehead. Footage of the photo shoot with photographer Jerry Schatzberg for the back cover of the single (US version only, as the UK version didn’t come in a picture sleeve) is captured in black and white. The band, entirely in drag, stands around a wheelchair-bound Bill Wyman at 124 East 24th Street, between Lexington and Park Avenues in Manhattan.

When asked about the concept behind the shoot, Keith Richards commented to the NME: “The photograph was just a laugh. There’s no deeper interpretation to be placed on it than that . . . We adopted the names of ‘Molly’ and ‘Sarah’ for fun.” He went on to say, “I think Bill must get the ‘king of the queens’ award for his portrayal of the bird in the bathchair in the uniform. I mean just look at her . . . I mean that’s the one who pressed the button isn’t it?”

Friends of Chamber Music present jazz vocalist Samara Joy

The Friends of Chamber Music kicks off an amazing season Thursday night when it presents Samara Joy, the first Gen Z jazz singer and winner of the Sarah Vaughan International Vocal Competition.

The concert will be at 7 p.m. in Rudder Theatre on the campus of Texas A&M University.

While concerts presented by the Friends of Chamber Music normally are free, due to the expense of bringing Joy for her first Texas concert, tickets are required. They are $20, $5 for students. They are available at the MSC Box Office on the first floor of Rudder Tower. They also are available online at boxoffice.tamu.edu or by phone at 979-845-1234.

Tickets also will be required when the Friends of Chamber Music presents international superstar violinist Midori on Feb. 7 as part of the Celebration Tour for her 40th anniversary as a professional musician.

Other concerts on the Friends of Chamber Music season are Viano String Quartet at A&M United Methodist Church on Nov. 17; organist Christian Schmitt at A&M United Methodist Church on March 21; and harpsichordist Mario Aschauer and Harmonia Stellarum Houston at First Presbyterian Church on April 23.

Thursday’s Samara Joy concert is co-sponsored by the Academy for the Visual & Perming Arts at Texas A&M and the Brazos Valley Jazz Society.

Accompanying Joy will be Ben Paterson on piano, Paul Sikivie on bass and Even Sherman on drums.

Joy, 22, has released “Linger Awhile,” featuring her take on classic tunes made famous by the likes of Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughan and Billie Holiday. It was the music her family listened to as she was growing up in the Bronx.

Like many singers before her, Joy grew up singing in church before joining the jazz band at the Fordham High School for the Arts, where she won Best Vocalist in the Essentially Ellington competition. Later, she enrolled in the State University of New York-Purchase jazz studies program.

A favorite on TikTok, Joy said, “I think maybe people connect with the fact that I’m not faking it, that I already feel embedded in it. Maybe I’m able to reach people in person and on social media because it’s real.”

Following her first concert in Boston, the Bosten Herald wrote, “The most obvious comparison with Joy is [Sarah] Vaughan herself — the rich lower register, the baroque melodic ornamentation, swoops up and down octaves from word to word, multi-note melisma stretching one-syllable words to infinity. And it seems she’s eager to invent. Her setting of original lyrics to a Fats Navarro trumpet solo, ‘Nostalgia (The Day I Knew),’ was like bebop bel canto — one long-flowing, multisyllabic line, with the ‘speaker’ an imagined older man.”

Joy is coming off a standout performance Friday at the Monterey Jazz Festival 2022.

The College Station High School Student Jazz Ensemble, under the direction of Jon Seale, will give a short performance at 6:30 p.m.

Indian rapper 100RBH: ‘My dream is to perform in front of 100,000 people’

In 100RBH’s home, a music career was not on the table. Growing up in a traditional Indian household, the aspiring rapper was instructed by his father to find a “respectable” job that would earn him a daily wage. But the 24-year-old, born Saurabh Abhyankar, had other ideas.

For most musicians, dreams of global success seem far-fetched. But in 100RBH’s rural hometown of Amravati, in the western state of Maharashtra, few people were even aware of what hip-hop was. “People didn’t know s*** about this industry,” he tells me in his local Bambaiya accent (Mumbai’s Hindi), over the phone. He had to hustle just to persuade locals to come to his shows. Yet in time, “ever since the money started flowing in, other [parents] have been telling my mum that they want their sons to find a career in the music industry too”.

100RBH is a gully, a form of Indian street rapper blending traditional folk sounds with modern instrumentation and an attitude to match. Originating in Mumbai, gully – an Indian term for a narrow street – has since spread across India, taking influences from American hip-hop giants such as The Notorious BIG and Tupac. Lyrics tend to delve into issues such as politics, social reforms and way of life, as opposed to the more superficial themes of booze and women that often transpire in mainstream Bollywood music.

Before releasing his debut solo tracks, 100RBH was a “proud” member of Swadesi, India’s first multilingual hip-hop crew, whose ethos is “music with a cause”. In their single “Khabardar”, the controversial group address the “slaves of society” and corrupt leaders who forget their responsibilities: “Na karte khud ye kuch, na accha kisiko karane dete (They don’t do anything themselves nor let anyone do any good),” raps 100RBH. He says his time in Swadesi was one of the most “dangerous” things he’s ever done, because of the band’s outspoken views on government reforms and right-wing politics. “When I heard Swadesi’s music for the first time, I was impressed,” he says. “They were talking about the same issues that I cared about. In fact, they were the only people who had the balls to talk about local issues in the country.”

For his solo work, he takes heavy influence from the Mumbai-born rapper Divine, regarded as one of India’s most successful gully rappers and the inspiration behind the hit Bollywood film Gully Boy. “Just like me, Divine comes from the gullies of Bombay,” he explains. “I thought if someone like him could make it big in life, so will I.” Like Divine, he thrives on wordplay and lyrics that drip with double meaning. On his 2022 hit “Zanjeer”, which is built from hyper-intensive rhythms, he offers up a succession of sharp socio-political critique and witty humour in both the Hindi and Marathi languages: “Purane daur ke zanjeer ko mein todhta (I break the old chain)/ Laakhon masoomon ki awaz mei akela bolta (I speak on behalf of hundred thousand innocent souls.)” Soon after the track’s release, 100RBH dedicated it to the late Indian social reformer Babasaheb Ambedkar.

Now signed to his idol Divine’s label, Gully Gang Entertainment, 100RBH hopes he will one day be invited to perform at international festivals such as Rolling Loud and Lollapalooza. Maybe even Glastonbury. “My dream is to perform in front of 100,000 people.” Until then, he’ll continue to make music and raise his voice against “politicians who don’t take their jobs seriously”. He wants to draw attention to matters such as the recent Maharashtra floods, caste discrimination and other human rights violations in India. As for his family, his father in particular – they now proudly tell the world who their son is and what he does. For 100RBH, that in itself is a major win.

SIBU (Sept 25): The two-day Borneo Tribal Music Festival (BTMF) 2022 could be listed as ‘one of the best products’ in terms of international tourism, said permanent secretary to the Ministry of Tourism, Creative Industries and Performing Arts Sarawak Hii Chang Kee.

He said he saw the potential of the event to grow bigger if it continued to be run as an annual festival here.

“Despite its slightly lacklustre start, I believe the Borneo Tribal Music Festival would grow bigger in the future.

“I believe with the support from the Sibu Municipal Council (SMC) and other related parties, it has the potential to be another international-level event here apart, from the Borneo Cultural Festival, Sibu International Dance Festival and Sibu International Base Jump,” he told reporters when met at the inaugural BTMF on Taman Esplanade here on Friday night.

Hii also commended the organiser for holding an event that he deemed as ‘definitely going to have a very positive impact on the local tourism sector and at the same time, on the people of Sibu as well’.

He regarded the BTMF as being different from the other music festivals, while highlighting that every city and major town in Sarawak should have its own music festival.

“BTMF is the first for Sibu. In Kuching, we already have Kuching Jazz and the Rainforest World Music Festival, while in Miri, (there) is Borneo Jazz.

“We are very happy with the existence of BTMF, which has the potential of reaching such a standard.”

Hii also assured everyone that the Ministry of Tourism, Creative Industries, and Performing Arts Sarawak would always provide support and assistance for the organisation of any festival event meant to ‘make the atmosphere more interesting and at the same time, attract more people from outside to visit Sibu’.

“After the pandemic and now entering the endemic phase, those involved in the tourism sector in Sarawak should work harder, and to start working, towards recovery,” he added.

Meanwhile, SMC chairman Clarence Ting expressed hope that more of such events could be held here in the future.

On the BTMF, he said this kind of festival had never been held in Sibu, but the encouragement for and the acceptance towards it had been amazing.

“The BTMF idea came from our young man, Wilfred Gan (managing chairman of BTMF).

“At first, he was a bit hesitant to organise it but after briefing me about it, I asked him to proceed.

“It turned out that this festival did not disappoint tonight (Friday); I was very surprised to see the number of visitors here.”

In this regard, Ting encouraged the local youths to contribute more ideas to make Sibu a lively and vibrant place than ever before.

When interviewed, Gan said the tickets for both nights had sold out.

“The festival can only accommodate 1,000 people per night,” he added.

The festival also comes with various stalls selling food for the convenience of the visitors.

The festival, which ends today, features various artistes and popular deejays from Malaysia, Indonesia and Vietnam.

Adding further, Gan said: “We have even received visitors from Australia.

“I hope that BTMF could be organised again, at a larger scale with a larger venue, in the future.”

Sound on Sound kicks off with music and fun in Bridgeport

BRIDGEPORT — Lao Triffin and Catherine Baker decided to go to the inaugural Sound on the Sound as soon as the two-day music festival was announced. 

Even before the lineup was known, the couple from Guilford knew they wanted to return to Seaside Park for a music festival.

“It’s been a rough couple of years,” Baker said. “We wanted something to look forward to.”

This is the first major music festival at Seaside Park since the Gathering of the Vibes in 2015, which ran for 20 years, most of which were held at the park. The Vibes started in 1996 and came to Bridgeport in 1999.

Triffin has been to nine Gathering of the Vibes. He, Baker and their friends decided this was a great chance to revive that tradition.

NFL owner donates $1M to Farm Aid during Raleigh show

RALEIGH, N.C. — When Willie Nelson, Neil Young and John Mellencamp organized the first Fair Aid concert in 1985, it was to bring awareness to the loss of family farms and bring in funds to help keep families farms in business. Thirty-seven years later, that message remains the same.

And the cause was furthered with a large donation from Indianapolis Colts’ owner Jim Irsay on Saturday night at the annual Farm Aid concert at Coastal Credit Union Music Park at Walnut Creek in Raleigh.

Just before Mellencamp’s set, Irsay presented him with a check for $1 million for Farm Aid.

To date, Farm Aid has raised more than $64 million for family farms.

The festival’s farm focus was strong from the food vendors to the artists on stage. The regular concession staples swapped for “Homegrown Concessions” featuring local and organic foods including fresh seafood and pork.

Farming and agriculture remained at the forefront of the packed event with the Homegrown Village, a section of the venue devoted to education and advocacy. There were also opportunities to visit with animals. Guests interacted with pigs, goats and sheep. A veterinary section of the village hosted “fainting goats,” even allowing children to listen to their heartbeats.

Rising country star Brittney Spencer and Americana performer Charley Crockett were among the first artists to take the Farm Aid stage. Crockett dedicated his set to the farmers who helped him out when he was just a “hobo musician.”

Sheryl Crow played a selection of her greatest hits including “If It Makes You Happy” and “My Favorite Mistake.” Crow’s touring bassist Robert Kearns, who is from Conover, N.C., wore an N.C. State wolfpack shirt during the set.

Singer-songwriter Chris Stapleton donned his famous Charlie 1 Horse Hat for nearly hour-long set. Dave Matthews and frequent collaborator Tim Reynolds took the stage just before 8 p.m. Their set was dotted with some of Matthews’ hits “Crush” and “Don’t Drink the Water.”

Matthews began the set by expressing support for farmers, a community he said shouldn’t have to struggle as much as they do.

Nelson, 89, was set to close the benefit just before 10 p.m.

Imagine Music Festival — back and better than ever – Technique

Rolling hills of green, large open pastures and riding in school buses are all reminiscent of a field trip to a farm, but that scene was what Imagine Music Festival-goers were welcomed with this past weekend. After a lengthy two-year hiatus, the electronic dance music festival returned Sept. 15-18, with a new location and a whole new look. 

Imagine originally took place at the Atlanta Motor Speedway, but its new location was located just outside Rome, Ga. to allow for expanded space. This allowed for experiences like a silent disco, bigger campgrounds, games, vendors, new stage designs and much more. 

The headliners for the aquatic-themed event included artists such as Illenium, Kaskade and GRiZ. Other notable artists like Snakehips, Madeon and Porter Robinson were also in attendance. 

The theme for this year’s festival was “A New World,” and attendees were able to submerge themselves into the oceanic vibe. The sets were all designed to highlight a different part of nature, the largest being

“Oceania” with gigantic prop oysters holding peals high on top of the stage and an illuminated squid at the side. 

Other stages were equally as interesting with one having inflatable tentacles enveloping the whole area and another that was built to resemble the Amazon Rainforest. The festival in its entirety placed a heavy emphasis on nature and having Imaginers connect with their environment. 

The day started with an over hour-long drive from the Tech area to get to the location, but once there, guests were quickly guided to their respective parking areas and then directed to one of many school buses to get to the venue. 

As an adult, boarding a school bus with 30 other strangers brought back a feeling of youthful nostalgia along with anticipation to see what the day had in store. Chatter filled the bus with attendees complimenting each other’s extravagant outfits and excitedly discussing their plans on who they wanted to see. 

Upon exit from the vehicle and a quick pass through security, the energy shifted and it was clear that Imagine was truly a place for expression, fun and community. There was no one central theme when it came to attire as some guests were decked out in full cosplay, while others were in standard “rave” outfits but everyone looked like they were dressed to impress. 

The multiple stages were separated based on subgenre and style, with dubstep and more “hardcore” EDM occupying the largest venue. The other sets hosted other styles like house, which is a more instrumental disco sound, and other sets focused on trance, which features more synthesizers and an otherworldly feel. 

Festival-goers were free to “genre hop” to explore the different stages and listen to different artists. There was not a moment of silence, and once attendees left one stage, they were immediately met with more music as they moved across the huge outdoor space. 

As the sun slowly set, it was clear that the nightlife was where the festival truly shined as neon lights, lasers, fire canons and projections lit up the sky. People danced with light-up hula hoops and fans, while others carried huge poles covered in string lights, and it was common to see people with LED embedded gloves giving a show to other Imaginers. 

Subtronics, an American dubstep artist known for his bass sound, was a highly anticipated performance that took place at the Oceania stage. His set shook the entire venue and even those sitting on a hill at a distance could still feel the music.

That combined with incredible light and sound design, and the overall atmosphere of being packed in a crowd all vibrating at the same frequency, made it a truly unforgettable experience. 

Madeon’s set was another incredible set that felt like an out-of-body experience. It is often hard for EDM artists to be considered good performers as they are often behind their DJ deck, occasionally jumping to hype up the crowd. However, Madeon, a French DJ and music producer, is in every sense a performer. 

His specialty is house, which also incorporates video game-esque and electropop sounds.

His performance included incredible colorful visuals that followed a story alongside his music. It was a sight to behold as Madeon arched his back along with the crescendos and rose to the top of his toes as the music flowed out of him. 

Imagine Music Festival has something for everyone and the friendliness of the EDM community there made it a welcoming and enjoyable experience for veteran festival-goers and newbies alike. 

After two years of waiting, the festival was definitely worth the wait and will hopefully get even better next year.

Watch MEGADETH Receive Platinum And Gold Records After Los Angeles Concert

Thrash metal pioneers and metal icons MEGADETH were presented with plaques to commemorate the RIAA (Recording Industry Association of America) certification for platinum sales of 1992’s “Symphony Of Destruction” and the gold status of 1986’s “Peace Sells…But Who’s Buying?” and 1990’s “Holy Wars…The Punishment Due”. The presentation was held on August 24 after they performed to a packed house at FivePoint Amphitheatre in Irvine, California as the support act for FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH.

MEGADETH guitarist Kiko Loureiro has uploaded video of the plaque presentation to his YouTube channel. Check out the clip below.

According to Billboard, MEGADETH‘s latest album, “The Sick, The Dying… And The Dead!”, sold 48,000 equivalent album units in the U.S. in its first week of release to land at position No. 3 on the Billboard 200 chart. It marked MEGADETH‘s eighth top 10-charting album. Of “The Sick, The Dying… And The Dead!”‘s 48,000 units earned for the week, album sales comprise 45,000, SEA units comprise 3,000 and TEA units comprise a neglible sum.

MEGADETH‘s previous top 10 entries on the Billboard 200 were “Countdown to Extinction” (No. 2, 1992),“Youthanasia” (No. 4, 1994),“Cryptic Writings” (No. 10, 1997),“United Abominations” (No. 8, 2007),“Endgame” (No. 9, 2009),“Super Collider” (No. 6, 2013) and “Dystopia” (No. 3, 2016).

“The Sick, The Dying… And The Dead!” consolidates a furious return to form that began with the Grammy-winning “Dystopia”, while pushing forward musically and marking mainman Dave Mustaine‘s recent triumph over throat cancer. Reuniting Dave with co-producer Chris Rakestraw (DANZIG, PARKWAY DRIVE),who together helmed 2016’s “Dystopia”, the album was recorded at Mustaine‘s home studio in Nashville, Tennessee, with Loureiro and drummer Dirk Verbeuren. Bassist Steve DiGiorgio temporarily stepped in to record the album. With the kick-off of MEGADETH‘s recent tour, MEGADETH alumnus James LoMenzo rejoined the MEGADETH family as permanent bass player.
