We are excited to announce the Winner of the Jim Dickinson's Legacy People's Choice Video Award. It is the video of Jim playing with the Rolling Stones. Out of 11 video's 114 people liked it, 54 people shared it, and it reached 5730 people. (For comparison, the announcement of the contest was liked by 21 people, shared by 3 people, and reached by 593 people).
The winner of the prize will be announced
later. He was chosen by a computer program and is a most appropriate
individual. I was amazed by the insight he showed as he wrote about his
reaction to watching Jim and Keith Richards IN THE MOVIE, "GIMME
SHELTER" and listening to Jim playing with the Rolling Stones and
taking the piano solo. Stay tuned for more about the winner. This
message below I wrote him describing the prize he won:
of Jim on the Dickinson carriage (not grave) stone is from "Dixie
Fried," Jim's first record, which is being re-released next year. You'll
get this version with six extra tracks! You'll also get his
masterpiece, "Beale Street Saturday Night" which is being re-released
and will come out next spring. "I'm Just Dead" is GREAT! It is Jim
playing with NMA and Jimmy Davis at the New Daisy Theater on Beale
Street- released posthumously. "Dinosaurs Walk in Circles" is Jim's last
recording. It's awesome! It is a jazz record, including "When You Wish
Upon A Star," which he had never before played until this recording.
You'll hear Jim learning the song as he's being recorded. it's
heartbreakingly good. The essay you wrote about listening to Jim play
with the Rolling Stones proves you will understand this cut in a way
that few people could.
"You'll have Jim's first and last
records, his masterpiece, him playing with his sons, and last but not
least, a surprise- a record of Jim's the likes of which you've never
heard!!! 5 cds in all. How would this be?"
