Exile On Main St.

Rolling Stones • 2LP

35

“Exile On Main St.” has been viewed by many fans and critics as the Rolling Stones’ best work and a culmination of a string of the band’s highly critically successful albums, as well as being concerned one of best albums of all time.

To mark the re-release of the album in 2010, a documentary film entitled “Stones In Exile” was made and had its worldwide premiere on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon.

Recording for the album began in 1969 in England during sessions for “Sticky Fingers” and continued in the summer of 1971 at a rented villa in the South of France named Nellcôte while the band lived abroad as tax exiles. Working with a mobile recording studio, the loose and unorganised sessions went on for hours into the night, with personnel varying greatly from day to day. The recording was completed with overdub sessions at Los Angeles’s Sunset Sound and included additional musicians such as pianist Nicky Hopkins, saxophonist Bobby Keys, drummer Jimmy Miller and horn player Jim Price. The resulting music was rooted in blues, rock and roll, swing, country and gospel, while the lyrics explored themes related to hedonism, sex and time. These newly recorded tracks were combined with some tracks recorded at earlier sessions from 1969 – 1971, resulting in the Stones’ first double album.

For sale here is the 2010 reissue of the album as a heavyweight gatefold double LP, and includes the documentary DVD in a cardboard slipcase, plus a logo sticker. Everything as good as new!
