A gorgeous copy of a scarce Stones-related album and a pretty good record, too.

Background: Shortly before he died in 1969, Brian Jones of the Rolling Stones took a trip to Morocco to recourd the Master Musicians of Joujouka.  He took the tapes back to London and distilled hours of tapes down to an album’s worth of material, then added phasing and echo to make an already interesting mostly-instrumental album something truly fascinating and hypnotic.

It’s not rock, and it’s not Brian Jones or the Stones performing, but it’s a terrific record.

AllMusic.com gave Brian Jones Presents the Pipes of Pan at Joujouka 4 1/2 stars:

In 1968 Brian Jones of the Rolling Stones traveled to Morocco and taped parts of music at the Rites of Pan Festival. It’s uncertain whether this should be considered a Brian Jones album, or an album by the Pipes of Pan at Jajouka, or an album by the Master Musicians of Jajouka, as the performers on this recording are most commonly known in the West. The important thing to know is that it’s a document of Moroccan traditional music that achieves trance-like effects through its hypnotic, insistent percussion, eerie vocal chanting, and pipes.  While this music had been performed in this fashion for a long time before Jones documented it, this was among the first of such recordings to receive reasonably wide exposure (although it was released after Jones’ death) in Europe and North America. Thus this recording anticipated the wider popularity of trance-like music among both electronic rock and progressive African musicians later in the 20th century.

You can listen to an excerpt of the album here:

After Jones’ death, the album was shelved for a while, but was finally released in 1971 on the Rolling Stones label.  As the album wasn’t radio friendly, nor did it have a single, it died a quiet death on the shelves with little promotion.

Brian Jones Presents the Pipes of Pan at Joujouka was released in the United States, the UK, and in Japan.
