Rolling Stones, Happy

Keith Richards birthday today. This is upbeat.

But when I think of Keef these days I think of Wingless Angels, the recordings he made with his Jamaican neighbors. According to his book, these live recordings in his yard were pretty much done on the fly. A record of neighbors getting together for nightly jams, maybe around the fire pit. On the actual releases, you can hear the crickets. It’s beautiful.
