Coloring Club Plus — 12/30/19

Dec 30

Humble apologies for posting this so late. I went to bed late after watching two movies then slept in super late. The post wasn’t prepared so that set publishing time back even farther.

I started listening (again) to the 10 Rolling Stones albums I borrowed from the library. The plan is to try to choose lesser-known songs of theirs to highlight. Hans at Hanspostcards was going through their discography track by track earlier this year and successfully turned me into a big Stones fan. I learned a great appreciation for Brian Jones and Keith Richards. For that, thank you, Hans!

Also, just a reminder that my daily coloring and musical selection every day will be ending tomorrow. It’s been so much fun coloring every day while listening to so much joyful music of all kinds and times, much of it new to me, but time element is cutting into tasks, other pursuits that need/want to get done. I’m able to work and create art while music is playing but the coloring takes focus. The music may continue every day, but coloring won’t be daily. Maybe once a week. I haven’t got it all figured out yet, but you can count on it for one more day. My appreciation goes out to each and every person who has commented on the coloring, as it was encouraging and motivating.

Aftermath is a studio album by English rock band the Rolling Stones. It was released in the United Kingdom on April 15, 1966 by Decca Records and in the United States on June 20 by London Records. The American edition featured a different cover and track listing, substituting the single “Paint It Black” in place of four of the British album’s songs. Overall, it is the band’s fourth British and sixth American studio release.

The album is considered an artistic breakthrough for the Rolling Stones: it is the first to consist entirely of original Mick Jagger–Keith Richards compositions, while Brian Jones emerged as a talented multi-instrumentalist, playing a variety of instruments not usually associated with rock music, including sitar, Appalachian dulcimer, marimbas and Japanese koto, as well as guitar, harmonica and keyboards. Despite these textures, much of the music is still rooted in Chicago electric blues. It was the first Rolling Stones album to be recorded entirely in the United States, at RCA Studios in California, and their first album released in true stereo. It is also one of the earliest rock albums to eclipse the 50-minute mark, and contains one of the earliest rock songs to pass the 10-minute mark (“Goin’ Home”). Lyrically, the album features psychodramatic themes of love, desire, and obsession.

The band’s misgivings about their rock stardom are also touched on fans who imitate them (“Doncha Bother Me“) …

The Jukebox Rebel says: “Doncha Bother Me” jumps back to the blues rock vibe – it might not be progressive but it’s as cool as a freshly pulled pint in a homely tavern, and Mick’s acrobatic vocal is completely ace.

Countdown Kid says: With Jones’ slide dominating the musical proceedings with an assist from Stewart’s saloon-y piano and Jagger’s harp solo, this is both a throwback to blues tradition and a look ahead to the traditionalist bent the band would themselves take a few years up the road.

Altrockchick at 50THIRDAND3RD  says:  Doncha Bother Me,” a lively and well-arranged song that is overlooked not only because of what came before (“Under My Thumb”) but also because of what comes next: “Goin’ Home,” an 11-minute-plus performance…

I said, “Oh no, doncha follow me no more”
I said, “Oh no, doncha follow me no more”
Well I’m looking for my face
And I got no place to go

I said, “Oh no, doncha follow me no more”
I said, “Oh no, doncha follow me no more”
Well, pick your own mind
And don’t you touch mine no more

Still waiting here for a single idea
In your clothes and your hair
I wore it last year
Oh no, doncha follow me no more

I said, “Oh no, doncha copy me no more”
I said, “Oh no, doncha copy me no more”
Well, the lines around my eyes
Are protected by a copyright law

Well, all the clubs and the bars
And the little red cars
Not knowing why, but trying to get high
Oh no, doncha follow me no more

Doncha follow
Doncha follow
Songwriters: Keith Richards / Mick Jagger
