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 ...

BBC Review

How times change. If you read Mick Farren's review from the NME of this compilation from 1975 and then compare it to one from any of the trendier online review sites today you'd wonder even if it were the same BAND that's being dissected. Farren can't even begin to countenance a view that allows for any of the tracks to be regarded as below par. Recent reviews treat the whole thing like a record from your rather embarrassing uncles. Once these West London boys were a threat to society. Now they're something you buy for your mum and dad to play in the car. Sheesh!

So why should you care if you happen to be one of the (presumably very) young people for whom this band signifies little more than knighthoods and Wembley-filling superannuated gigs? Well, because for at least a decade they were, as they announced on Get Yer Ya Yas Out; the greatest rock 'n' roll band in the world. Often speciously pitted against the Beatles; their roots lay less in pure rock 'n' roll and more in the London blues scene. Originally Brian Jones' band, they bonded over a mutual love of all things gritty and Chicagoan.

Forced by scene-maker/manager Andrew Loog Oldham to write their own material after a string of hits covering everyone from Chuck Berry ("Come On") to the Beatles themselves ("I Wanna Be Your Man"), "The Last Time" ushered in a period where Jagger and Richards easily rivalled Lennon and McCartney for the holders of most important cultural icons of the 60s.

It's all here: The ur-riff of "Satisfaction", the snarling blues of "Little Red Rooster", the social anxiety of "19th Nervous Breakdown". Every month saw them glowering on the set of Top Of The Pops.

Rolled Gold, spans their transition from chart heroes to album kings, and from Decca to Atlantic (and their own label). recent revisionism bumps up the psychedelic whimsy from Their Satanic Majesties album on this re-release, but then gets stuck into the really dirty stuff. From Beggars Banquet ("Sympathy For The Devil") to Sticky Fingers (the oh-so-politically-incorrect Brown Sugar) the second half of this set is a perfect lesson in how to grow up disgracefully in public and still make awesome sleazy blues rock while you're at it.

Essentially Farren was right then, this is all glorious stuff, with hardly a dip in quality. Need some Stones in your life? Of course you do. Start here! --Chris Jones

I still have the original vinyl version, with it's fascinating sleeve notes about 'the single' being a dying art - just a year before the punk music explosion completely revised the format:-)

This was good value on vinyl and is even better value in its CD incarnation. There's never been a better summary of the Rolling Stones glory years IMO and the chronological format appeals to the music nerd such as I.

Track Listing (courtesy of Wiki:-) is as follows!

All songs composed by Mick Jagger and Keith Richards except as noted

"Come On" (Chuck Berry)
"I Wanna Be Your Man" (John Lennon/Paul McCartney)
"Not Fade Away" (Norman Petty/Charles Hardin)

I was born at a time when this was new and significant in the musical world. Guess what? It still is!

The Stones had a peak period from mid 60s to early 70s, in my opinion; Exile on Main Street was their last great hurrah. However this collection is absolutely wonderful.

Apart from the ground breaking impact they had on the culture of the day, people sometimes overlook just how versatile they were in creating original material and playing it live.

All the killer hooks are here on everything from "Jumping" to "Last Time" to "Brown Sugar". Massive singles that still define the Stones to today. But don't forget how talented they were when putting together some incredibly beautiful Melodies. "We Love You", "Ruby Tuesday" & "Lady Jane" to name just a few. In fact, I could spend an afternoon writing about each track, but why bother, go buy it and listen yourself. Next to the Beatles, they must have one of the most impressive back catalogues of anyone from that era.

This is so rich in quality; it should be in everybody's collection.

although there is some overlap with 40 Licks, this 2 disc collection is superb and an essential purchase. I just wish they had added some of the early EP tracks instead of the well known hits that all fans will already have. I particularly wanted You Better Move On, which had a lot of TV and radio promotion back in the day and is hard to find now. Still, at 72 mins and 75 mins respectively this is superb VFM and remastered too. Fantastic price at the moment from Amazon as well at £8.95.

So the Sony Bravia people found my favourite ever Stones track and made that fab playdoh bunny ad. Why do most of my friends think She's a Rainbow is an undiscovered track??? I've been waiting for the original Rolled Gold to come out on CD for years. Hot Rocks and 40 Licks are OK but I spent half my time jumping the lamer tracks. And now here it is and with extras. I'm very happy and would recommend this as a good starter for 10. What I love is that most of these were released years before I was born and they still stand up today.

I have to admit to getting a bit sick of the fanboys/girls on Amazon dishing out 5 stars to everything and then throwing hissy fits when another reviewer is evil enough to pass critisism.

However, Rolled Gold is deserving of 5 stars. If you're not familiar with the Rolling Stones this is a great place to start. All the classics between 1963 and 1971 are there:- Paint It Black, Satisfaction, Gimmie Shelter, Street Fighting Man, Sympathy For The Devil, Honky Tonk Woman, Jumping Jack Flash, Get Of Of My Cloud etc etc.

Other terrific inclusions are the fantastic She's A Rainbow and 2000 Light Years From Home. These songs saved the album, Their Satanic Majesties Request from being a complete duffer.

How great to also have the US single Play With Fire and the quasi Beatles Tell Me. The Chuck Berry classic Carol is also there. Legend has it that Chuck was jealous of the Stones because they could do his songs better then he did.

One of my favourites is I Wanna Be Your Man, which was written by Lennon/McCartney in a matter of minutes and given to The Rolling Stones. They take it and turn it into a snarling, foot tapping, semi classic. Listen to Brian Jones guitar break. Surely one of the first heavy metal guitar solos.

Another wonderful song in No Expectations. Brian Jones's was being edged out of the group at this time, but his slide guitar work on this track shows how hugely he contributed to the Stones

Perhaps a couple of mini quibbles. Yesterdays Papers and Dandilion are pretty poor songs by Stones standards. I'd rather have had something like Back Street Girl and The Spider And The Fly.

Overall though a worthy package.
