Jumpin’ Jack Flash – Classic Rock Pick of the Week
Let's hop aboard Whale's time machine and set the dial for May 24th, 1968. Can't remember what I was up to at the time. I was just 13 years old.
One thing I do know happened on that date, The Rolling Stones latest single was Jumpin' Jack Flash. Mick and Keith wrote this gem that soared up the singles charts in the United Kingdom, the United States and many other countries, including hitting the number one spot in many countries.
Many artists have covered the song, it's been featured in shows, movies and was even the title of a movie starring Whoopie Goldberg.
Jumpin' Jack Flash can be found on the album 'Through The Past, Darkly (Big Hits Vol. 2.' For this week's Classic Rock Pick, take a look at The Rolling Stones performing Jumpin' Jack Flash from a 1972 concert in Texas.
