Exile On Main Street [Deluxe Version]
By

Rating
Regarded as one of the greatest albums in rock history, The Rolling Stones' classic album Exile on Main Street
receives the Deluxe Edition treatment with an additional 10 never-before-heard tracks.
Upon its release more than three decades ago, Exile on Main Street innovatively wove varying musical genres,
instruments and even artists into a compelling rhythmic masterpiece. This new compilation features 10 tracks
originally recorded during the Exile era and only recently discovered while working on the reissue project.
The original 18-track double-album was recorded in various stages at multiple locations, including Olympic
Studios in London, Keith Richard's mansion Nellcote in France, and in Los Angeles where the literal "Main
Street" influenced the album title. Exile reveals a sprawling mix of genres with undertones of blues, country,
R&B and gospel mixed with lyrics that fervently demand for release and liberation.
"The album's riveting portrait of artists pushed - by the times, by themselves - to the very limits of their
creativity has provided inspiration to every musical generation that has come along since Exile was released in
1972," said author Anthony DeCurtis. "Every song on Exile on Main Street is elevated by its relationship to the
music that comes before and after it. The album's irresistible power is unlikely to diminish any time soon."
Exile on Main Street will be available in two CD formats: the original 18 track release; a deluxe CD edition with
the 10 special bonus tracks; and a super deluxe package that also includes vinyl, a 30-minute documentary
DVD with footage from Cocksucker Blues, Ladies and Gentlemen? the Rolling Stones and Stones in Exile, and
a 50-page collector's book with photos from the Exile era. The 10 unreleased tracks were produced by Jimmy
Miller, The Glimmer Twins and Don Was.

  • Still inspired by their STICKY FINGERS recording sessions in Muscle Shoals, Alabama, EXILE ON MAIN STREET found the Rolling Stones sounding more like a Southern fried juke-joint band than ever before. That EXILE was recorded in a basement is no surprise, either--much of it sounds as if it was recorded live at a gospel revival, with a final mix that gives no hierarchy to specific instruments. The result is a swampy, most exhilarating chunk of rock & roll euphoria.
  • EXILE sharpens the country, blues, and gospel tendencies the Stones began exploring in the late '60s on albums like BEGGAR'S BANQUET. Here, armed with an assortment of backing musicians and vocalists, the band virtually inhabits the spirit of each style, distilling the whole to a ragged, soulful perfection. From the escalating, horn-driven vamps of "Rocks Off" through the back porch singalong "Sweet Virginia" to the mean blues stomp of "Ventilator Blues" and the church-like strains of "Shine a Light," EXILE's double-album length plays like a weary, boozed-up sermon on the very meaning of rock music. This is the closest the band ever came to religion, and it still has the power to convert.

Rolling Stone (7/6/72, p.54) - "...continual topping of one's self can only go on for so long, after which one must sit back and sustain what has already been built. And with EXILE the Stones have chosen to sustain for the moment..." -Lenny Kaye

Q (6/00, p.91) - Ranked #3 in Q's "100 Greatest British Albums" - "...The Stones were at their most creative. The music simply flowed. The sound that emerged was dirty, sexy, soulful, f&#!ed-up and funky....a dizzy peak which the Stones never scaled again..."

NME (Magazine) (10/2/93, p.29) - Ranked #11 in NME's list of the `Greatest Albums Of All Time.'

NME (Magazine) (9/11/93, p.18) - Ranked #5 among The Greatest Albums Of The '70s - "...Definitive cigarette-in-mouth, fall-about rock 'n' roll..."

NME (Magazine) (7/9/94, p.43) - 10 - Classic - "...stands as perhaps the band's finest hour. A sprawling, dense yet compelling concoction of their romance with America's black musics..."

Paste (magazine) - "The album's murk puts it in a unique place among both Stones albums and rock classics..."

Pitchfork (Website) - "[T]he sweat, grimy EXILE ON MAIN ST. has grown into the Rolling Stones' most universally acclaimed record."

Uncut (magazine) (p.104) - 5 stars out of 5 -- "[T]heir masterpiece, an 18-track distillation of blues, soul, country, gospel and rock, all shot through with the Stones' brand of carnality, vitriol and (occasionally) nobility."
