ABKCO RECORDS CELEBRATES

THE 45th ANNIVERSARY OF

THE ROLLING STONES’ BEGGARS BANQUET

ON DECEMBER 7th

 

Please join ABKCO Records in celebrating the 45th Anniversary of the Rolling Stones’ Beggars Banquet.   A breakthrough album for the Rolling Stones, it was recorded in London and Los Angeles, produced by Jimmy Miller and released in the U.S. on December 7, 1968.  The last full album with founding member Brian Jones in the line-up, Beggars Banquet includes such classics as "Sympathy For the Devil" (the subject of the Jean-Luc Godard film of the same title), "Street Fighting Man" and "Factory Girl." Guest musicians and vocalists on the album include Nicky Hopkins, Rocky Dijon, Ric Grech, Dave Mason and The Watts Street Gospel Choir.

 

Beggars Banquet is unanimously praised by critics, ranking on Rolling Stone’s “500 Greatest Albums Of All Time” list, being called “an album flush with masterful and growling instant classics,” by eMusic and “filled with distinctive and original touches” by Anthony DeCurtis of Rolling Stone.  Though it’s certainly marked by two timeless socio-political anthems in “Street Fighting Man” and “Sympathy For The Devil,” it’s the gritty acoustic country and country-blues tinged songs like “Prodigal Son” and “Factory Girl” that has helped Beggars Banquet stand tall through the decades.

It was announced this week that KORN will join Avenged Sevenfold, Trivium, Asking Alexandria plus a whole slew of others on this year's Mayhem Fest tour. Sara and Rabbi talked with Korn frontman Jonathan Davis about being a part of the annual festival once again, writing with Brian "Head" Welch in the studio after his long absence from the band, their latest album The Paradigm Shift and the video for the song "Spike In My Veins" (below), Jonathan's custom "Bitch" mic stand, musical influences, and more... Stream the chat now and get your tickets for Mayhem HERE. We'll see ya at the SBC on Friday August 1st!

 

Kenny Wayne Shepherd stopped by our studios with Noah Hunt before their sold out show at the Keswick Theatre with the Experience Hendrix Tour. We hear they'll be back in town by the summertime... Listen to our chat to find out more about that, plus the new KWS album on the horizon, and how Jimi Hendrix influenced Kenny as a young blues guitarist.

Today, David Florig, the Executive Director of WePac was in to discuss the library situation in the Philadelphia School System. Right now there are only 12 state paid libraries open at elementary schools in Philly, 28 over all. There are 150 schools in Philly. WePac uses volunteers and money to open the libraries in the schools. Get more information at their website. Thank you so much for listening,
