Jumpin' Jack Flash signalled the beginning of a new era for the Stones. No longer playing catch-up with The Beatles (or anyone else for that matter), they set a course for the dark heart of their myriad influences and, thanks in large part to Keith's use of open tunings, came up with something thrillingly, disturbingly new.

Jumpin' Jack Flash drove a stake through the heart of psychedelia.
