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 ...

5.0 out of 5 stars My Favourite Stones Record 21 Sep 2010
Format:Audio CD
I like the early Rolling Stones singles but in my opinion the stones music doesn't stand up to the test of time like "Their Satanic Majesties Request".
The orchestra you hear playing behind the stones are the genius of the multi-talented Brian Jones over dubs.I never realy liked the band after Brian died.They weren't the same.There is a sensitivity in their music that was lost forever after Brian Jones death.

5.0 out of 5 stars All Essential Listening! 12 May 2010
Format:Audio CD
To start compairing this album to other Stones albums is really missing the point. To see(or hear) what's going on with any artist it's essential to view everything chronologically. When the Rolling Stones started they did versions of already existing music that excited them and presumably had made them want to form a band in the first place. Eventually they start experimenting doing their own stuff so by "Aftermath" they have an album with all their own compositions ....But still it's boys enthusiastically exploring and discovering what they are capable of. It's a fascinating trajectory if followed in sequence, so 'Satanic Majesties' is not such a great leap from 'Between the Buttons'... They cover a very broad range in these first six (British) albums,some more contrived than others, but all interesting and important both for them and the wider evolving youth culture. People tend to focus on 'Exile on Main Street' as the stones most decadent album but 'Satanic Majesties' is the band at it's most unfocused and spaced out. The combination of drug enthusiasms and external pressures from arrests and overwork and rapid Cultural flux means that 'Satanic Majesties' is the polar opposite of their first album's gritty directness and simplicity. As such, between those two extremes the Stones begin to be able to define themselves.
During the break from incesant touring and after taking stock obviously they decided they didn't want to get more spacy and 'experimental' but to dig in to what they loved most, hence the sequence of'BeggarsBanquet'-'Let it Bleed' & 'Sticky Fingers' (and the bonus of 'Ya Ya's') is boy's turning into men...(creatively speaking)still not without awkward and contrived moments but all fantasticly entertaining and exciting.

5.0 out of 5 stars Exile on Carnaby Street 9 Dec 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The phrase 'ill-advised' is always bandied about whenever critics cover this phase of the Stones' career, but what is more ill-advised - settling into a cosy cul-de-sac that a straitjacket label like 'The World's Greatest Rock 'n' Roll Band' leads to, or being brave enough to transcend genres with a vision of pop music as a limitless vista of endless possibilities?
For me, the Stones were at their best when they escaped the confines of R&B and widened their musical horizons, something they were equipped to do with aplomb courtesy of Brian Jones' ability to play any instrument he picked up. Now that 'Pop' has become as much of a restrictive dead-end as any other label, the province of test-tube boy-bands churning out focus group-approved ballads so saccharine Pat Boone would have baulked at singing them, it's refreshing to revisit an era when Pop was actually a platform for invention, innovation and adventure; and despite their best efforts to subsequently distance themselves from it and find money-spinning solace in the repetition of The Riff, the Stones were once as sonically ambitious as the Beatles, as this album proves.
I first bought 'Satanic Majesties' on vinyl in the 80s - that poor-quality 'flexi' vinyl typical of the period and housed in a cheap cardboard sleeve that began to disintegrate within months. I mainly bought it for '2000 Light Years From Home' and that seemed to be the only track I ever played before flogging the LP along with a bunch of others at my local second-hand record shop. But giving the album a fresh hearing 25 years later has certainly been worthwhile. In many respects, it's a miracle the Stones managed to record anything in 1967, let alone a brave experiment like this one. Of course it will always languish in the shadow of 'Sgt.

5.0 out of 5 stars Top 10 Psychedelic albums of all time 12 Sep 2008
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Disregard the myth (mainly among some critics) that this album is a weak copy of Sgt Pepper. True, it was inspired by Pepper. (Good idea!) However to say it is "woefully misguided" or other such rubbish is to miss the fact that this album on its own is one of the top ten psychedelic albums of all time. If it was by any other band, it would be hailed as such. Unfortunately, many critics fail to see (and hear) this fact and continue to perpetuate the myth that the Stones "made a mistake" based on comparisons with the other Stones albums. Absolute bollocks! Listen for yourself: "She's a Rainbow", "2000 Light Years from Home", "Citadel", "In Another Land", "Gomper". Classic brain warpers on par with S.F. Sorrow, Pepper, Floyd's Piper, The End - Introspection. It is, in fact, as brilliant in its own way as Bleed, Banquet, Exile. Check out this baby at once!

4.0 out of 5 stars A Little Piece of '60's Exotica 22 April 2006
By Peter Richardson VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Once described by Mick Jagger as the album they recorded , "while under the influence of bail". "Their Satanic Majesties..." represents a flawed hiatus whilst the Stones dallied with psychedelia, got busted, took of to Morocco, swapped women and generally occupied themselves with almost anything but their hitherto glittering career.

Despite it's flaws, "Their Satanic Majesties Request" has undergone something of a critical reappraisal especially since it's debut on CD some twenty years ago.

This edition is essentially the same as the superlative, dual layered (SACD and CD) edition that first appeared in late 2002. These re-issues are sonically superb and even played on a good CD system have an extra audio fidelity that is quite breathtaking.

The difference is that with the "new/ old" packaging that the Japanese vinyl replicas offer, lies a product that in terms of it's presentation shows a far greater affinity to it's original forebear than any subsequent issues of this album have hitherto achived to date.

The first and most obvious example is that the 3D cover of Michael Cooper's studio set up of the Stones and the fantasy landscape that they literally constructed under Cooper's direction, has at last after some thirty plus years been re-instated,

Aside from the marvels of miniaturisation that this edition offers., the 3D cover is actually more succesfull than it's '60's predecessorm insofar as the original tried to be too clever in having profile views of the band apparent when the cover was angled, which detracted from the overall 3D feel of the original cover. This edition neatly avoids that pitfall and the resulting cover is all the better for this.
