Kima & The Yellowtops perform “Built Up For Release”

“After Jackie heard the Kima sound he started camping out for their shows all over the world. At the time, people liked to throw around words like ‘restraining’ and ‘order’. But Jackie doesn’t ever like to put a label on things.”

Jackie demanded that Kima & The Yellowtops be on The Tribute Album or it would get no green light from him. Never one to be shy about his adoration of Kima, Jackie is quoted as saying that, “she is the biggest single influence on the exploration Jackie has taken with his illicit side.”

The song, “Built Up For Release”, was a perfect fit for The Yellowtop sound. With it’s syncopated rhythm and explicit undertones, Kima slid right into her groove in the studio while Jackie looked on in awe from behind the glass. The significance of Kima’s style on Jackie has been evident ever since. It was Kima that taught him how to use his instrument for other things besides music.
