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 ...

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic blues-rock with a dash of country 24 Aug 2013
By Peter Durward Harris #1 HALL OF FAME TOP 10 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
While others argue about the sound quality of various re-issues, I'm very happy with the 2002 version. I don't take the advice in the booklet to play it loud, because I live in a house of multiple occupation and not all of those who would hear it if I did are Stones fans. But I love the album even at normal volumes.

The set opens with Gimmie shelter, a song that should be familiar to most people, which is followed by the only non-original song on the album. Love in vain, a cover of a blues song by Robert Johnson, features Ry Cooder as guest musician playing mandolin.

Next up is Country honk, a song better known as Honky-tonk women, under which title it is the most famous song here. Byron Berline is the guest musician here, playing fiddle. The remaining songs are all great, wiith my favorites among them being Midnight rambler and You can't always get what you want.

This is a great album from 1969 with plenty of variety among its nine tracks.

4.0 out of 5 stars Hangs together pretty well 1 Dec 2008
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This album, like Black and Blue, saw the Stones effectively reduced to a 4-piece. Keith has to work that much harder and it shows in some strong songs.
"Gimmie Shelter" is not only, in my opinion, the best Stones song ever, but also one of the best songs ever. It is simply stunning. "Love In Vain" has a nice feel to it, although I rarely warm to Stones covers (apart from the adolescent charm of the early covers on their first and third albums). "Country Honk" is an uptempo country track that feels right and not contrived, while "Live With Me" showed the Stones with a snarl and contempt that was was still convincing when they were in their mid 20's. "Let It Bleed" is another great track and was written in the period when Jagger's lyrics still had resonance and feel. "Midnight Rambler" is good but not as great as it is sometimes made out to be. I think it is sometimes praised more for its concept than for the song itself. "You Got The Silver" is an atractive Keith song, rendered above average by Brain Jones's last contribution to the band on autoharp. "Monkey Man" I used to think was just filler, but my view has changed and I now think it is the Stones experimenting with heavy rock (as The Beatles did with Helter Skelter) and pulling it off. Finally, "You Can't Always Get What You Want" is another classic, which I can see in years to come being sung by professional choirs as a "traditional" staple.

After a series of difficulties within the band, The Rolling Stones regrouped and came out of the blocks with the classic `Beggars Banquet'. Their next album, `Let It Bleed', built on the groundwork laid down there and an album of classic country rock is the result.

The album is propelled by Charlie Watts' metronomic and powerful drumming, with Bill Wyman's underrated but essential Bass. Keith Richards puts in some classic blues guitar and Jagger lays down a note perfect, tortured vocal. There are classic tracks here, the iconic `Let It Bleed' and `You Can't Always Get What You Want', the dangerous `Midnight Rambler', and perhaps the greatest ever cover of Robert Johnson's `Love In Vain'. The tempo is relatively slow throughout, but these are powerful songs that will just sweep you along. This is a classic album that I just keep on returning to.

For all trivia lovers, the cake in the picture on the album front was baked by a very young Delia Smith.

Finally the Stone's back catalogue is being given the treatment it deserves in this series of re-mastered SACD hybrid discs. On a normal CD player the sound is excellent, with a great mix that brings out so much more detail than the old, murky, releases. On a SACD system these will just blow you away. You really feel like you're in the studio with the band. My only complaint is the lack of any kind of liner notes. Some recording details and an essay about the band at the time would have been nice, but hey - it's the music that's really important, and that is superb.

Highly recommended to all.

3.0 out of 5 stars Review is about the vinyl 18 Mar 2011
By 10G3N
I ordered it because it was cheap. Now I know why it was cheap. The sound is just not right (an odd neither CD nor vinyl sound). I was very afraid when I saw words like 'Direct Stream Digital' and 'Super Bit Mapping Direct' printed on the vinyl cover. Absolutely makes no sense to make vinyls from digital sources. When will they ever learn. Fantastic album, though.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best Rolling Stones' albums 13 May 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I bought this in vinyl (the mono version) over 40 years ago and recently bought it as a CD. For me it's probably the best Rolling Stones' album with Aftermath coming a close second. For what it's worth I think the best five tracks in order of preference are (1) You can't always get what you want (2) Gimme shelter (3) Monkey man (4) Let it bleed (5) Live with me. The other tracks are all of a high standard, especially Midnight Rambler. Most of the Stones' albums have at least a couple of weak tracks but not this one. It's still as fresh now as it was for decades ago. Some of the lyrics are extraordinary if you listen closely: "My best friend he shoots water rats and feeds them too his geese, don't you think there's a place for us, in between the sheets?" - perhaps not Byzantine reasoning but definitely intriguing. I still don't see the connection. The only thing I don't like about it is the cover which just doesn't look quite right. Strongly recommended.

Again, from the classic period. The first track Gimme Shelter is a slow burner that builds steadily until grabs you by the throat. If I was opening a gig I would open it with this.
