Keith Richards - Run Rudolph Run - The Harder They Come album FLAC

Arranged By, Producer – Keith Richards. Photography By – Claude Gassian. Bizarrely released after the festive period in the UK, hence the ℗1979 on UK copies, and NOT ℗1978 as in some other countries. Run Rudolph Run, The Harder They Come ‎(7", Spe). Rolling Stones Records.

Keith Richards reached retirement age last Thursday, 65, which in musician years equals 325. Tack on another 1,000 in vampire digits. Fortunately, it’s a mere three decades this month that His Holy Riffness put the lash to Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer. The flip side, a meaty cover of Jimmy Cliff anthem The Harder They Come, came to life in Los Angeles two years later, directly after the conclusion of the group’s Some Girls tour in San Francisco. Keith, Ronnie Wood, and Austin’s Ian McLagan began tracking what became Emotional Rescue, at which point the two guitarists plied a bit of their beloved ragga. Released December 1978, Run Rudolph Run wasn’t merely seasonal commercialism either.

Keith Richards' 1978 solo debut, a cover of Chuck Berry's 'Run Rudolph Run,' will be reissued for Black Friday, 23 November 2018, via Record Store Da.

In 1978, Keith Richards' first solo release was this holiday rock classic, on a 7" with "The Harder They Come" as the b-side. In 2007, Rudolph ran again with "Pressure Drop" as the b-side. This 40th anniversary red vinyl 12" celebrates the holidays and Keith Richards by putting both b-sides together. More info HERE on RecordStoreDay. 8. Back to Current News.

Keith Richards (born 18 December 1943) is an English musician, singer, and songwriter, best known as the co-founder, guitarist, secondary vocalist, and co-principal songwriter of the Rolling Stones. Rolling Stone magazine called Richards the creator of "rock's greatest single body of riffs" on guitar and ranked him fourth on its list of 100 best guitarists in 2011, and the magazine lists fourteen songs that Richards wrote with the Rolling Stones' lead vocalist Mick Jagger on its "Rolling Stone's 500 Greatest Songs of All Time" list. His first solo single, released in 1978, was a cover of Chuck Berry's "Run Rudolph Run", backed with his version of Jimmy Cliff's "The Harder They Come". In 1987, after Jagger pursued a solo recording and touring career, Richards formed the "X-Pensive Winos" with co-songwriter and co-producer Steve Jordan, whom Richards assembled for his Chuck Berry documentary Hail!

You gotta run run Rudolph Santa's gotta make it to town If Santa makes 'em high tail it We can take the freeway down Well run run Rudolph Racin' like a merry-go-round. Come on David, take it. Well said Santa to the little girl "What is it that you wanna get?" "A little baby doll that can cry, sleep, drink and wet" Well away went Rudolph, racin' like a searing jet. You gotta run run Rudolph Santa's gotta make it to town If Santa makes 'em high tail it We can take the freeway down Well run run Rudolph Racin' like a merry-go round.
