Rolling Stones- CHILD OF THE MOON UNRELEASED VIDEO NEW
REMASTERED 2015 B Side to Jumpin' Jack Flash - I do not own this material No copyright infringement intended.
RECORDED ON MARCH 29, 1968 at at London’s Olympic Studios, Child Of The Moon is the frayed end of a dirty golden thread. Cut with New York producer Jimmy Miller at the start of sessions for what would become the band’s seventh studio album, Beggars Banquet, the track audibly harks back to the high Mephistophelian baroque of their December ’67 album, Their Satanic Majesties Request.
Out of sync with the group’s new antsy country-blues sound, Child Of The Moon was rush-released as the B-side to the caustic sleaze stomp of May ’68’s Jumpin’ Jack Flash. A scion of wretched psychedelic excess then, disowned by its dissolute parents? Well, evidently that’s not the whole story.
On paper, Child Of The Moon is Jagger’s polytheistic love letter to Marianne Faithfull, a mash note laced with a little elemental riddle and mystery. However, on record, it actually feels closer to pagan curse than lyric poem, a mixed-bag mojo potion invocation of a dream lover pushed to ritualistic nightmare by the hoodoo “Rain” beat of Charlie Watts’ drums, Brian Jones’ hypnotic saxophone drone, Jagger’s own fixed-pitch chant vocals and Jimmy Miller’s deeply unsettling shouting in those murky opening moments.
The band obviously thought enough of the song to accompany it with a promotional video, and it’s a startling artefact, recently revived on that social media following a tweet from the brilliant @bowiesongs account.
