A Stones cover for Bampot's contest. I used some midi drum loops (tweaked); the rest of it, including vocals, is all me.

Quick facts about the title of this song: while most people attribute Jack Flash to the Brit slang for heroine, given that the song was the Stones' return to blues, it makes most sense that Jack is an incarnation of John the Conqueror, a mythical hoodoo shaman often referenced in early blues.

Only you could make some kind of connection between the Stones' Jack and the incarnation of John the Conquerer!

Excellent version.

DB-- this is unbelievably good. I love it when covers put twists on the original-- and you've tied an Irish Knot here! I love eveything about this. Especially the production! The vocals are spot-on perfect for the music.

This has always been one of my favorite rock and roll tunes and I love it when people try and do original versions of songs... You've done it-- and you made me smile.

Thanks!

Well, this contest has certainly improved my ability to listen to Stone's tunes, or at least the covers. They've never been one of my favs. Sorry, you guys.

With that siad, this cover is great! If I never knew it was anyone's song before this production, I would go happily forward thinking this is a Mr. Bowles' original. It has his excellent dark voice, his excellent instrumentation, his excellent mixing, and even the text description lead-in is his usual excellent educational treatise.

Very well done all around.

This is amazing. Stones are getting a great makeover at icomp!!!!!!
On the title, last time I spoke to Mick and Ron, they were telling me the song was about a guy who used to jump out of bushes wearing nothing but the wind. Allegedly his name was Jack.

I like your choice to have the out-music be mellow with the melodic refrain be a light touch. All around excellent AND fun.

I clicked on this song a bit of ambivalence, after all, how could you improve on the Stones? Fortunately, DB gives us a complete departure from the original, and this fresh interpretation really impressed me, even though I don't often listen to elecctronica much (except ambiant when I can't get to sleep). Maybe I'll start!
