Get Together - Get Involved!

There's an album brewing and we want YOU to help us bring it alive.

We're bursting with new material that just needs to be recorded. But it'll take hard cash to make that happen and the crumbling record industry just ain't cutting it. It's time to take back the means of production.

Instead of buying the album from a record label after it comes out, let's strike a new deal. Buy it from us here, upfront and we'll make the record together.

Us. We and thee. The CollectiV.

The Album

CollectiV is also what we're calling the album. It'll be the second studio album from Jim Jones and the Righteous Mind, following on from last year's rapturously received 'Super Natural'.

Jim Jones will be reprising production duties with maestro Alex McGowan twiddling the mixing knobs. The tracks are being finalised and rehearsed up now and the studio is booked for early July. 

It'll need mastering, polishing, waterproofing and all the usual safety tests to ensure that it's road worthy. We're going to stamp it onto quality heavyweight vinyl and give it a gorgeous gatefold sleeve to live in featuring cover art by Gavin Jay and photography by the legendary Steve Gullick. 

People Power

By buying direct from us you become part of the CollectiV and a member of our record label. We cut out the industry and work directly with you.

Grab one of the pledge rewards and we'll provide all the Righteous goodness you've come to know and love. And then some. Trust us, we've got a few surprises and guest appearances lined up for this next album that are going to make it really special. And the more we can raise right now, the more Righteousness we can bring you - it's as simple as that. 

So take a look at the list of packages and do what feels right. You can get simply the music on download, grab a signed vinyl or for a few extra quid we've got a whole host of fun to offer you. 

You could, for example, have your name written on the album artwork. Just imagine how impressed your young 'uns will be. Once they get past their Ed Sheeran phase that is. You never know, it could bump up the quality of home they end up dumping you in. Fingers crossed.

Membership packs come with all pledges and include a booklet of Righteous Wisdom, a sticker for marking out your territory and a CollectiV tattoo (temporary not permanent, although that could be arranged for the super-committed.) There's also a  limited edition print on offer that won't be available after this crowdfunder is done.  

It's all quality gear for the discerning rock 'n' roll fan, none of your cheap tat here.

There are a handful of set lists signed by the band and you can even get a guitar lesson from the man himself via the miracle of Skype. And if you've a few more quid (or a lot of mates) then why not book your own Righteous Mind show? You're the record label now, we'll make it happen. 

Our Story

From Thee Hypnotics and Black Moses through to the Jim Jones Revue and The Righteous Mind, Jim Jones has dedicated his life to making exciting, passionate rock 'n' roll music. Playing from the heart and shooting from the hip, Jim remains an elemental, innovative force in rock 'n' roll.

The next album 'CollectiV' will follow on from 2017's deliriously received 'Super Natural' and will be recorded with Alex McGowan at Space Eko East studios. It is set for general release October 2018 but pledgers will get their hands on it two weeks before anyone else. 

The Rewards

Ring made in conjunction with Great Frog. Final design may change.
