Sympathy for the Devil Recording Session

Aus gegebenem Anlass, hier der Godard-Film zu den Aufnahmen für „Sympathy for the Devil“. Die DVD ist sehr zu empfehlen, auch wenn sie nur als UK-Import erhältlich ist.

Anmerkung: Wie die meisten Studio-Doku-Filme, ist auch dieser Film mehr Fiktion als Realität:

The recording of „Sympathy for the Devil“ began at London’s Olympic Sound Studios on June 4 1968 and continued into the next day; overdubs were done on June 8, 9, and 10.[7] Personnel included on the recording include Nicky Hopkins on piano; Rocky Dijon on congas; Bill Wyman on maracas. Marianne Faithfull, Anita Pallenberg, Brian Jones, producer Jimmy Miller, Wyman, Hopkins, Jagger and Richards can be seen performing backup vocals in the film Sympathy for the Devil (see below) by Jean-Luc Godard, but this scene was staged specially for the cameras. The actual backup vocals were overdubbed by Jagger, Richards and Miller. Richards plays bass on the original recording, and also the song’s electric-guitar solo.
