Mick Jagger appears on two tracks on the album – the title track plus a song called ‘Diamonds And Pearls’. “I’m not a big one for anniversaries,” says Chris Jagger in a statement, “but in the brew ha ha revolving around The Rolling Stones and 50 years I realised it’s 40 years since my first record came out.” Recorded in France, the album also features Bobby Kees and Tim Rees, who play horns for The Rolling Stones.
