The soundtrack for ‘Jim’ a radio play by Josephine Halbert with music by Desert Mountain Tribe is out now on iTunes.

Jim’ is a ‘rock and roll’ love story written for radio, set against the backdrop of the psychedelic counter cultural scene of the late 1960s.

Josephine Halbert commissioned the London based rock band Desert Mountain Tribe to write the music for Jim:

I saw the band play at a Discovery 2 event, the established London showcase of new talent, run by a friend of mine and one of Discovery’s founders, Alex Kerr Wilson. I thought they were a great live band. I was looking for music that could meet the brief and musicians who have what it takes to deliver it. The production soundtrack needed to speak a credible language of the late 1960s psychedelic rock era but I also wanted to find musicians who could bring their own contemporary originality, talent and style into the creative mix. It was like building a bridge between the ‘now’ and ‘then’ musical worlds of psychedelia — and the music had to reflect the ‘futuristic’ vision of the story’s main character, Jim, an American rock star poet living in California in 1968 but who is ‘ahead of his time’! (which gave us some freedom!)”
