Stupefied: The Andrew Loog Oldham Playlist

Publishing these Stupefied playlists every week just keeps getting better and better. This week, in honor of my interview with him published at Perfect Sound Forever last week, I'm particularly proud to present a playlist from Andrew Loog Oldham. Its not often that you can say an iconic rock & roll band's manager was (or is) as iconic as the band themselves, but in this case its true. If Ian Stewart was "the sixth Stone," then Oldham has the to be the seventh. If not the the sixth and a half. 

These days, Oldham has a widely listened to radio show on the Underground Garage channel of Sirius XM satellite radio. He has also published several autobiographical books over the last bunch of years that include Stoned, 2 Stoned, Rolling Stoned (a compendium of sorts of Stoned and 2 Stoned), and Stone Free - a book that takes a look at why he did what he did in the first place, as well as his influences. See them all here.

Lastly, he's recently resurrected the Andrew Oldham Orchestra to record ...Play The Rolling Stones Songbook, Volume 2 which will be released in March. Originally started as a studio side project in the mid sixties, the "orchestra" released four albums of instrumental cover versions - the best known being The Rolling Stones Songbook. Guests on the new release include Gary Lucas, Elliot Easton, Christine Ohlman, Vashti Bunyan, Rafael Atijas, Ché Aimee Dorval, the High Dials, Johnny Marr, Juan Galeano, Pablo Memi, The Chesterfield Kings, and Gruff Rhys of the Super Furry Animals.
