THE ROLLING STONES topped the US albums chart today 43 years ago, on 15 May 1976 with their 13th album ‘BLACK AND BLUE’. It was their first longplayer with Ronnie Wood replacing Mick Taylor who left late 1974. To Turn Up The Volume’s ears this was/is The Stones‘ reggae album, their Piña Colada album, their feel-good summer album. No special effects, just a bunch of fun songs you love to play on a hot day.

MILES KANE Covers DONNA SUMMER’s HOT STUFF – Belgium/Scotland 2018…

Ecstatic live performances

Alex Turner‘s buddy MILES KANE released his new, third, solo album COUP DE GRACE
on 10 August. All summer long he played festivals to promote it. Yesterday he landed in Belgium at Crammerock Festival. Although he looked like a horny modern day Tarzan, the white dressed Kane played a rhapsodic kick-ass set. A thunderous rock and roll show from start to finish. So many artists love to pick a classic song from other famous artists
to cover at festivals in order to get ALL of the spectators going completely nuts. So did citizen Kane. His choice was somehow surprising, yet totally completely bang-on. DONNA SUMMER‘s timeless disco knockout Hot Stuff made thousands scream at the top of their lungs. Here’s that glorious momentum when performed at TRNSMT Festival in Scotland
on 1 July 2018…
