The Rolling Stones in Exile

Biography

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 ...

It is somewhat self-defeating to call something Rarities since with its release the description immediately ceases to be true. Every new release is a rarity before it comes out. Furthermore, in this particular case much of the fare on offer is already currently available on CD, and none of it is previously unreleased, though three tracks make their official CD debut here.

Although the subtitle of 1971-2003 suggests a wide-reaching overview, nearly three-quarters of the album dates from the 1980s and 1990s, with only one track more recent than 1998. The four titles dating from the 1970s are potentially the most valuable as they pre-date the CD era. The El Macambo version of Mannish Boy is available on two CDs (Love You Live and Sucking In The Seventies) so its inclusion here is quite unjustified, but the other three are new to the format.

Let It Rock is the oldest and most important recording here, a Sticky Finger era recording featuring Mick Taylor live at Leeds in March 1971, which appeared on the B-side of Brown Sugar but was missing from Singles Collection - The London Years where it belonged. It is here in its stereo mix. Incidentally the gig was edited into an hour-long BBC In Concert programme at the time, and was re-broadcast on BBC 6 Music as recently as 2003, albeit in mono. Perhaps the whole gig will make it onto a stereo CD one day.

Through The Lonely Nights is the only other track from the Mick Taylor line-up and appeared on the flip of It's Only Rock And Roll. It is a long-time favourite of many and is one of the strongest reasons for this collection. Of course there are many more B-sides from this decade that demand an appearance on CD and their exclusion here is saddening.

This could have been so much better than it is, mostly material that can be found in the Stones backlog of released recordings.
There are, according to Bill Wyman's excellent book on the story of the Stones, many unreleased recordings gathering dust. Several that were made in Chicago at the time they recorded their second album for instance. There are also the superb live recordings made with Robert Cray and Bo Didley during the Voodoo Lounge tour that appear on the video but never made it to CD. There is the recording made with John Lee Hooker and Eric Clapton 'Boogie Chillin,' which is far superior to the 'Boogie Chillin' on JLH's 'Best Of CD', but it depends on who has the copyright I imagine.
However the CD is still worth at least 4 stars for bringing together these little gems on one album.

Inevitable many people buying this Rarities collection will already have a proportion of the tracks on it. That was the situation for me. So I bought it, in part, for the other versions of songs I already have but mostly for the tracks that I did not have such as the b side from the "It's Only Rock `N Roll" single from 1974 - the beautiful "Through The Lonely Nights".

So whether you are adding to your existing collection or perhaps starting your collection of Stones albums I highly recommend Rolling Stones Rarities 1971 - 2003.

Any reader looking for a new yet rawer/bluesier Stones release might want to seek out "Rarities 1971-2003" as an alternative - a collection of live recordings, B-sides and remixes. Opener 'Fancy Man Blues' highlights in one song what was missing on the whole of "A Bigger Bang" - textured sound, feeling and vocal prowess - and this 1989 B-side alone put's the newer collection, and the media's response, into better perspective.

Okay so Stones fans rush out and buy ANYTHING related to the band... even if they bring out the same old songs but in a different package. This time one would have thought they'd purchased a true gem, real rarities that could only have been acquired with some serious bootlegging and scraping around. Unfortunately, if you are a Stones fan, like myself, you'll probably have more than half of these tracks ALREADY. B-sides of singles I bought in the past, tracks that are on ALBUMS I've got (!) and a couple of tracks I've never heard but aren't anything to scream about.
I hope they release a sequel to Rarities, and I hope this contains, proper RARITIES. :)

This is an album for Stones fans who already have all their "major" works. There is stuff on here that you will not find anywhere else. Other reviewers have mentioned "Let it Rock" which is superb. My own favourite is "I Just Wanna Make Love To You (live)" which I remember first time around in the 60s. Here it is slowed down, dragged out and generally different but bluesy, ballsy and a real pleasure. I am glad I bought this album to round out my collection.
