The Rolling Stones in Exile


The Rolling Stones were formed in London in April 1962 by Brian Jones (guitar, harmonica), Ian Stewart (piano), Mick Jagger (lead vocals, harmonica, guitar), and Keith Richards (guitar, vocals). Bassist Bill Wyman and drummer Charlie Watts completed the early line-up. R&B and blues cover songs dominated the Rolling Stones' early material, but their repertoire has always included rock ...

4.0 out of 5 stars superb! 12 May 2003
Format:Audio CD
If you are a fan of the stones or of music from this period then you will enjoy not only this but the rest of this series of re-issues.
The quality that abcko have achieved almost puts you right there in the studio 40 years ago when all of these tracks were first recorded.
More please!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great album - now in great sound! 29 Oct 2002
By Peter Richardson VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Well they're here at last! The much anticipated ABCKO re-issues of those classic Stones albums. They've been subject to much conjecture over the last two years when the project to re-present the Stones 60.s back catalogue in new and better sound and packaging was first mooted.
...And now the waiting is over and having listened to eight of these CDs and comparing them with the previous "gold standard" in Stones CDs - the Mobile Fidelity Sound European releases of the late 80's early 90's, I can definitely assure Stones fans and casual buyers alike that these new re-masters are indeed the business.
And even if you are lucky enough to own all the Mobile Fidelity mastered releases, you are still going to need these new guys on the block.
Reasons? Well let's start with the packaging; OK so the "Certificate of Authenticity" is a tad tragic and just a bit irritating, but you can always extract it from the case and place it with due solemnity in the drawer where it can happily reside with the rest of your Stones artifacts, BUT and it is a big but, everything else has been presented in a way to make you feel as if you're nearer to having the original LP (you know those strange old vinyl thingies) cover in your hands then ever was the case with previous CD releases. The digipacks I know are not to everyone's liking, but the quality of the inserts and the printed quality of the covers are infinitely superior to ANY previous CD incarnations.
The sound is also a revelation and this from someone who has only been able to listen to the CD layer, but whether in mono or stereo this is an optimum listening experience and none more so than "12 X 5".

1.0 out of 5 stars Shoddy 30 Mar 2013
By ranger
Format:Audio CD
I completely agree with Joel.
Until we have the British version of these LPs with attendant A sides, B sides, EP tracks, alternate versions, ad jingles and BBC sessions (oh, and decent sleeve-notes), the Stones' back catalogue will remain the complete mess is has been since the 1980s, and especially since the glut of releases in 2002.

This could all be done SO MUCH BETTER, just look at the current buoyant state of The Monkees' or The Kinks' back catalogues if you don't believe me.

4.0 out of 5 stars GREAT SOUNDING CD OF A CLASSIC STONES ALBUM 25 Oct 2002
Format:Audio CD
The Stones second U.S. album, 12x5, was filled with some great covers and some early original material. Besides being one of their best early albums, the sound has been improved greatly. The album now contains STEREO versions of "Around And Around," "Confessin' The Blues," "Empty Heart," "It's All Over Now," "2120 South Michigan Avenue," and "If You Need Me," which have never been heard, let alone released, in stereo before. This version is superior to the old ABKCO version. This is definitely one album worth buying in the current SACD collection. You will not be disappointed in the upgraded sound. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars The second great Stones album 3 Jun 2009
Format:Audio CD
I bought the Decca vinyl in Africa forty-four years ago, and the Decca London CD twenty-some years ago. Wonderful. I'm listening again as I write. This remaster is almost identical apart from the longer time for 2120 SMA, but I'm still almost tempted to buy my third copy of this outstanding work... The CDs sound so much better than the downloads.

This second (US) album should not be confused with the third album, 'Rolling Stones II' as released in UK, and which was chopped up in the US as 'Rolling Stones Now'.

It fits in well between the UK first album 'The Rolling Stones' and UK third album 'Rolling Stones II', then followed with UK 'Aftermath' and UK 'Big Hits - High Tide and Green Grass' and UK 'Big Hits II - Through the Past Darkly' for not too much duplication and most of the classic great tracks. While I still have some of the others I never listen to them, so no point in a mention.
After BHII I always felt they became too self indulgent and repetitive and some years ago I sold my mint copies of 'Exile on Main Street' and 'Steel Wheels'.

To sort out the very real confusion about which tracks should be on which album, UK or US, see the excellent discography in the back of the Stones joint 2003 autobiography "According to The Rolling Stones" (which carefully manages - almost but not quite - to avoid any mention of Bill Wyman.)

This album of early stones songs played live is one for any stones fans collection. Songs like time is on my side remind us of the early blues which were the rolling stones. The beautiful songs on this album are performed superbly and keith richards shows his genius even at this early age. It is a wonder to behold and a great, tight album with no bad songs.

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth it just for It's All Over Now 22 Jan 2006
Format:Audio CD
To me, the absolutely excellent cover of It's All Over Now is a good enough reason to buy this album.
But if that doesn't satisfy you, let me give you a few more. The album starts out with the foot-tapping, lively Around and Around, and is followed by the very raw Confessin' the Blues. I'm sure I don't need to introduce you to the Stones' fantastic cover of Time Is On My Side...."Tiiii-iiii-iiime, IS on my siiiide... yes it is!" ... Great stuff! Under the Boardwalk and Suzie Q are also exceptional examples of early Stones. Oh, and again, you won't find a better example of chugging, charging, smirking, hollaring Stones than in It's All Over Now. Jagger's vocals are superb, and the weaving of Jones' and Keef's guitars is almost reminiscent of their later days with Mick Taylor.
On the whole, brilliant stuff. A little filler here and there, but it's reduced to insignificance by the brilliance of the rest of it. Plus two thumbs up for the packaging, remastering, and SACD-ing.
