Late Night FDL: Brown Sugar

The Rolling Stones – Brown Sugar (ft. Eric Clapton)

Love that slide guitar licks of Eric’s…

The Rolling Stones have revealed a previously unheard version of Brown Sugar, featuring a guest appearance by Eric Clapton.

It’s one of the bonus tracks on the upcoming reissue of 1971 album Sticky Fingers, which arrives on June 8.

The band say Clapton’s slide guitar was recorded during an “impromptu performance at a birthday party for Keith Richards” in 1970.

Mick Jagger and co are currently touring the US, where last week they performed Hang On Sloopy for the first time in 49 years. The track was part of their shows in the 1960s, but didn’t reappear until they played Columbus, Ohio, last week. The state made the track their official song in 1985, and the Columbus audience joined in on the chorus with their traditional chant.

Guitarist Ronnie Wood recently stated the band were at the top of their game, saying: “We are better live now. I don’t know what’s happened. We’re going to explode one day, I think.”

What’s on your mind tonite…?

    Since I’m music impaired, I’ll contribute a topic.

    This comes from a comment of mine in response to an article entitled [link] The Most Corrupt Administration in Modern American History

    I’ve read the articles you review here, but the way you wove them together makes for a more comprehensive and lasting understanding. Thanks.

    I have two comments. Point One, I simply don’t see the case made that the Obama administration is any more corrupt than any other administration over the past 50 years or so. Vast financial deregulation began in the 1980s, and from that point forward the precision trajectory was set. The numbers may be larger now, but the trajectory is no more egregious; it’s merely a factor of time. You can see the trajectory here, expressed in the huge amounts of money flowing into the pockets of financiers.

    The US slave-owner’s Constitution is the underlying systemic flaw that allows for massive government corruption. The obsolete Constitution, itself, is corrupt because it does not directly confer (make senior to government rule) one single human right upon the people — not even the right to vote in a Federal election, which can be revoked, limited, “tallied,” or “recounted” at any time by the states. (Indeed, the Supreme Court recently ruled that the Federal government no longer has oversight of elections at the state level, which better serves America’s corporate owners and the President they pre-select.) In the modern constitutions of the world, declared human rights are the ONLY checks and balances that are needed — and the people of all nations in the world have demanded this. Since the American people cling to their ignorance and serfdom (guns and bibles) and will not demand a world-class constitution that would put all their human and civil rights ahead of government corruption (rights such as privacy, food, shelter, health care, personal security), I simply cannot see where Americans do not richly deserve the consequences of their cowardice, expressed here:

    Point Two, the focus here is on the financial destruction of the US as a society, but the corruption takes place across many arenas and affects the entire world. A wider-angled lens brings into view a larger picture that includes the socially-destructive TPP and TTIP, for example. Also coming into focus is the global criminality of the NSA, which will historically be regarded as the the direct cause of the fall of the US empire. A recent example of this type of corruption, in the realm of global murder and mayhem, is sales of toxic gases and chemical weapons to nations that made substantial contributions to the Clinton Foundation, while Hillary was Secretary of State. She was certainly not the first or the worst; the global drug distribution industry of the US Defense cartels has been robust since the Reagan administration.

    [link] During the roughly two years of Arab Spring protests that confronted authoritarian governments with popular uprisings, Clinton’s State Department approved $66 million worth of so-called Category 14 exports — defined as “toxicological agents, including chemical agents, biological agents and associated equipment” — to nine Middle Eastern governments that either donated to the Clinton Foundation or whose affiliated groups paid Bill Clinton speaking fees.

    That represented a 50 percent overall increase in such export approvals to the same countries over the two years prior to the Arab Spring, according to an International Business Times review of State Department documents. In the same time period, Arab countries that did not donate to the Clinton Foundation saw an overall decrease in their State Department approvals to purchase chemical and biological materials.

    the new Greek government sure as hell wishes that they didn’t come into office with financial obligations that leave them with such a limited range of options.

    FYI, y’all, Greece now controls all of Southwest Europe’s gas supply — all because the US Neocons violently overthrew Ukraine’s democratically elected president and put a Nazi puppet government in its place.

    What bad timing!

    Athens will now be able to secure an advance on its potential profits from the pipeline, thus giving Greece some much needed breathing room in its suffocating negotiations with the EU troika. This secures for Russia a Greco-Russo economic and energy alliance. Meanwhile, Europe debates how to proceed with sanctions against Russia due to NATO’s total screw-up in Ukraine.

    Greece will sign a document on political support for Gazprom’s Turkish Stream project at the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum in June, its Energy Minister announced on Monday. The country plans to invest $2 billion in its construction.

    Greece’s part of the pipeline, which will be delivering Russia’s gas on from the Turkish border, will cost some $2 billion, Lafazanis said in an interview with the Rossiya24 channel. The minister said that a Greek state company will be involved in the project, adding that there has been “big interest” from many companies wishing to take part in the construction and future operation of the pipeline…

    The new pipeline, which Gazprom is building from Turkey to the border with Greece, will be part of the Turkish Stream project aimed at delivering Russian gas to Europe without the participation of Ukraine. Russia intends to completely abandon its gas supplies through Ukraine by 2019. The EU would need to construct the pipelines leading further on from Greece.

    Via The Greek Reporter:

    It is odd that the Russian project is raising concern and doubts in the US and the European Union. We will not submit to the interests and wishes of any third country. Greece is nobody’s property.We move based on the interests of our people and our national interests. The country must become a development hub for Europe’s energy supply.

    As along as I’m on the topic, can you imagine what American women were really thinking when they laid eyes on Oman Kahdr, the youngest Guantanamo prisoner, who was just now released in Canada after years and years of continuous torture since he was 15 years old?

    Hint: It made American men look like shrunken cocktail wieners, in comparison. No wonder they didn’t want to let him out.
