My uber-talented old friend Richard learned how to play guitar a couple of years back. So he sent me a few tracks wondering if I could add instrumentation to them, like we used to in the old days (except I had to play everything). So this is the result. Enjoy!
Street Fighting Man (“dig the time is right for a palace revolution” – and hey, the palace is just around the corner)
Star Star (in dedication to the sex workers of the malecón and their newly-advanced career opportunities)
You Can’t Always Get What You Want (in dedication to the dissidents, joined by a chorus of “volunteers” in white costumes)
2,000 Light Years from Home (in dedication to all the rafters in the Florida Straits)
Under My Thumb (in dedication to Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio)
Tumbling Dice (joined by special surprise guest Donald Trump, who subsequently announces agreement to build Trump Havana Casino & Resort – and he gets to keep 15% of the proceeds!)
El Comandante (In the grand Stones tradition of covering authentic tunes they close with Porno Para Ricardo’s signature tune that gives Fidel his due. The authorities respond like Hell’s Angels at Altamont.)
