Green Lady, many thanks for reminding us of Ray Charles and "Moving On".

Found the 1959 original on OverJazz section of YouTube.

I love Ray Charles, and, of course, his album "Modern Sounds in Country Music" is one of the great ground breaking albums ever. It really opened my ears!

I finally later, in its time, got hold of the live EP "Got Live If You Want It" as part of the exemplary German Decca box release of four vinyl records, under the title "The Best of the Rest".

I lack words to express adequately the following and can only touch on the effect. To me, most of all of this EP's featured songs, it is their version of "I'm Moving On", which gives a phantastical example of a glimpse into what I have seen as musical and non-musical dimensions of the band early in their career, woven together, presenting one special impulse. That is (in positive meaning only) about a raw and primitive ecstatic quality that I sometimes have met with, confronted with certain recordings, mostly of their early live playing. It is usually both in Mick Jagger's singing and in band play that from time to time an ecstatic tension is called forth, but, in the case of "I'm moving on", I think it is also very much in and due to the answering vocals of Keith Richards during part of the song, adding further to the ecstasy.

As such, I think this ecstatic dimension of the band belongs almost exclusively to Brian Jones' period of the Rolling Stones and especially to live playing. The Rolling Stones had something highly special there that they later somewhat lost, even if other aspects and possibly higher quality of their music in a more conventional sense developed. But then, what is really quality in rock and subgenres music's context? I am myself especially fond of and attracted to those all too few examples of this phenomenon that I have dropped into.

And then there is the version by Elvis Presley. He approaches the song in country style, but then he speeds it up The a rock 'n roll pace, especially a the end.
Nice version!

Why do you never make any comments or provide nput Mr R?

It always strikes me as odd that you intimate a thread without providing any input or comments.

You have difficulty with the English language? ( noth g wrong if you do)
