ifty years on this earth is a milestone
worthy of celebration. Fifty years

influential bands in the world is
a landmark that’s both curious and really
Grrr! Is a compilation that acts as a
time machine in your memory as it charts
the Rolling Stones’ singles from their first
enthusia stic but amateurish adventure
(Chuck Berry’s Come On) right through
to their two brand new songs, Doom And
Gloom and One More Shot, both of which
jump out of the starting block s with the
sa me sense of energy and excitement.
While many of the songs on display
are mini masterclasses on the power of
rock’n’roll in the hands of experts – their
roughshod c ombination of lurching bass and
drums, weaving guitar lines a nd raunchy
voc a l s wagger set the blueprint for thousands
into the BloodStream
rchie Roach ’s new album is not
just an ordinary release. In fact, it’s
In the past three years he lost his
sou lmate, Ruby Hunter, he suffered a stroke
which required rele arning how to perform his
craft, and then he was diagnosed with lung
cancer resulting in the removal of half a lung.
of bands to follow – they haven’t been afraid
to venture into uncharted territory.
Putting out the steamy languid blues of
Little R ed Rooster wa s a brave deed for a pop
act of 1964 and the simple idea of putting
a four on the floor bass drum pattern to
Miss You seemed sacrilegiou s at a time when
punk’s anarchy was waging war with disco’s
apparent shallownes s. But they both worked
a nd they’re both timeles s.
Then you have the sweet string quartet on
As Tears Go By, the psychedelic swirl of We
Love You and the Latin piano and percu ssion
groove of Sympathy For The De vil.
Hardly seen as adventurous, the Stones
were in fact quite revolutionary when it
comes to trying a few new tricks – the
abovementioned Sympathy doesn’t even
feature a guitar till the solo and when it does,
Keith Richards’ jagged combination of three
or four notes is sharper than a blade. One of
the great dance floor guarantees of all time,
Honk y Tonk Women, feat ures nothing but
drum, cowbell and one guitar for the entire
first verse, with the bass only entering for the
chor us, a trick employed not much later by
Free on the equally iconic All Right Now.
Add to all this the classic ear grabbing
riffs that herald the arrival of numbers
like Jumpin’ Jack Flash, Brown Sugar,
Satisfa ction and Start Me Up and you’ve
pretty well covered all bases.
The triple disc version contains a stagg ering
50 track s, the majority of which are stunning
with the bal ance merely very good to great.
Long may they reign. The world just
wouldn’t be the same without them.
Enjoy the trip.
Much like Johnny Cash’s last albums,
you can hear the hard times in his voice.
But where Cash’s last works were
marked by a resigned desperation, this
album exudes a resilience and sense of
triumph over adversity reflecting his ability
to overcome a series of ha rdships that
would have sent a lot of us into a spiralling
spirit of defeat.
The songs speak of the power of music
(Song To Sing), his onene s s with this country
(Into The Blood stream), the heartbreak of
his pers onal loss (Mulyawongk), and the
possibilities of redemption (Wash My Soul In
The River’s Flow) .
They’re be autiful songs and this is a
beautiful album – uplifting, joyous and a
sheer delight to listen to.
As the wonderful slee ve notes say: “Even
though we may be suffering with some sort
of chronic pain we can learn to live with
and ma nage it with the right attitude to
life and some good medicine. Doing this
album has been good medicine for me!”
You can’t keep a g ood man down. Superb.
