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 ...

Product Description

Product Description

By the late seventies, The Rolling Stones were unquestionably the world’s greatest rock’n’roll band, a tag they thoroughly deserved and have yet to lose. They had moved effortlessly into open-air stadiums but also began a tradition of performing more intimate shows in theatres and clubs alongside their groundbreaking concerts in arenas. To the delight of their millions of fans, they have continued with this policy to the present. The world really was The Rolling Stones’ oyster in the late seventies, as their Canadian escapades made headlines around the world. They partied at Studio 54, came up with dancefloor favourites "Miss You" and "Emotional Rescue", and recorded in Paris, Nassau and New York. The eighties saw the band stretch the envelope further still, working with jazz great Sonny Rollins, film directors Julien Temple and Michael Lindsay-Hogg, and producers Chris Kimsey and Steve Lillywhite. Amazingly, the Rolling Stones topped these achievements with ever-more ambitious tours in the nineties and noughties, and recorded three more classic studio albums with acclaimed producer Don Was, in Dublin, Los Angeles, France and the Caribbean. Some Girls introduced a whole new generation to the music of the Stones. The infectious dance groove of "Miss You" topped the US charts, as did the album in 1978. Both releases also made the Top 3 in the UK, where the country-flavoured "Far Away Eyes", featuring Ronnie Wood on pedal steel guitar, enjoyed substantial airplay. "Respectable", the follow-up single in Britain, proved that they could match the punks they had influenced so much. The US market preferred the mid-tempo "Beast of Burden" which went Top Ten there. A cover of The Temptations’ "Just My Imagination (Running Away With Me)", the driving "When The Whip Comes Down", Keith Richards’ vocal turn on "Before They Make Me Run" and the urgent "Shattered"--a US Top 30 single--make this a must-have album. Peter Corriston’s striking cover design, controversial at the time, remains a classic.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not Quite How It's Supposed To Be 21 Nov 2011
Format:Audio CD
This is one of my favourite Stones albums but the record company seems determined to neutralise my continued enjoyment. The 2009 remasters of the post-Decca/London studio albums (from 1971's Sticky Fingers to date) have come in for some stick in some quarters & rightly so; the one-EQ-setting-suits-all-tracks approach to 'remastering' was a creative mistake which simply did not suit some titles, with Some Girls suffering the most. The original release didn't sound like it was recorded in a tin can but the 2009 version did with the contents compressed to a degrading degree, stripping the original of its dynamic range. What used to sound nice & sleazy was transformed into something shrill & dense. I was hoping that this 'deluxe' issue might feature a decent second attempt at the job but, alas, no: this package contains exactly the same 2009 remastered version with no discernible attempt to improve the faulty sound. This is disappointing, to say the least. Some Girls deserves so much better than this. What is truly frustrating, however, is that the same does not apply to the bonus disc of out-takes. The sound here is excellent from start to finish- I'm not about to complain on that score because the 12 extra tracks are well worth hearing if you're interested in a collection of would-be B-sides in fine quality sound. But is it not ABSURD that the out-takes sound so much better than the album proper? This is not quite how it's supposed to be, is it? If you think I'm being a tad tetchy here, compare this version of Some Girls to the 1990s remaster & you'll hear what I mean. The difference in tonal range is striking. Hell, under normal circumstances I'd be giving Some Girls a five-star rating but this version succeeds only in making it sound like a 3-star album & that just can't be right. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars Some Girls a very good album. 3 Jan 2012
By daveT
Format:Audio CD
Some Girls is very good. But concentrate on the bonus album. Its fantastic. Stones as they should be. Very raw, could be in a blues club. The bass and drums drive it along. Its not over produced. A good mix of tracks very good value. Stones note- make the next album like this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars words of burden 24 Nov 2011
Format:Vinyl
Well this has taken me back in time.... To when I owned this album (before throwing it out with the others when I sold my turntable) But now it is back as is a new turntable..... The only thing lacking on this fabulous album are the cut outs on the cover.

For once this is a great remaster. I don't feel that anything has been added. This is vinyl at its audible best..!

I also bought the cd set. Perhaps dissapointed that the extra 12 tracks are not included in the vinyl edition..!

4.0 out of 5 stars Better than a new Stones Album 23 Nov 2011
Format:Audio CD
I have not listened to the first disc, because I had the album already and cannot comment on what all the audiophiles are saying about this version in comparison with the previous version, however the bonus material I have listened to and it stands up really well. Don't get me wrong if I was talking to someone who had no Rolling Stone albums I would recommend a whole load of stuff before this, including Some Girls. If you really want to get into this band you clearly have to start at the beginning, but unfortunately all we have are the US versions of the early albums, which I have, but I have also reconstructed Rolling Stone (debut album) and Rolling Stone No. 2 on iTunes. The albums I would recommend for those who want to build a Stones collection are Beggars Banquet, Let It Bleed, Exile On Main Street (Remastered), Black And Blue, Goats Head Soup, It's Only Rock 'N' Roll, Tattoo You and the much under-rated Their Satanic Majesties Request but for Stones fans this is a welcome addition

5.0 out of 5 stars When the whip came down 9 Jun 2009
By Smitty Werbenjaegermanjensen (real name) TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The Stones really hit the mark with this one, great playing, great production and great songs-even if they are a bit below the belt. It has everything that I like about the Stones in bucketloads. Keith and Ronnie make the ancient art of weaving sound as effortless as breathing. They really work as one on this one. Ronnies slide, Faraway Eyes, and lead guitar work really stands out. The Stones, for me, peaked with this one, followed closely by Tattoo You. Everyone is giving it 110%, playing Lies would exhaust a lot of modern "rock" bands.

This album features a load of styles from the sly funky disco opener Miss You, through the smooth cover of Imagination, the rawk bluesy anthropological and educational(well not in the school sense) trawl through the wiles and ways of the worlds female population Some Girls, the punky and rocky Lies, the country hued sarcastic take on "gospel" radio Far Away Eyes, via others ending with the evocative description of the darker side of dwelling in New Yawk. Its all here! Magnificent degenerate rock music.

The remaster is once again a touch up in the detail on previous releases, better drums, better vocal separation, better guitar separation, better guitar crunch and better bass definition. Not as immediately apparent a difference as the Sticky Fingers and Its Only Rock and Roll remastering, but an improvement none the less.

Is it worth buying? If you are new to the Stones, definitely! If you have this on the Virgin release, yes if you want to hear every detail, no if you are just going to blast it on a portable.

There are folk out there who like to feed the music through a wave editor to find out what is going on, this review is based on listening to the music on a couple of different cd players.

It is not as good as Let it Bleed, but it still is a remarkable dirty Rolling stones work. Keith plays in 5 chord tuning and Mick is in great raw energy.
