5.0 out of 5 stars Dig out the album and settle down for a great evening, 9 Mar. 2006
This review is from: The Rolling Stones' Exile on Main Street (33 1/3) (Paperback)
Let Bill Janowitz be your guide as you slip down the steps into that dark cellar below the French mansion Nellcote where Keith Richards and the rest of the Stones made one of the most monumental rock n roll albums ever.

Janowitz's unashamed love for the band and the album will warm you while his knowledge and understanding of what it is to make an album (he's ex-Buffalo Tom) will throw fresh light on just how this Stones' masterpiece came together.

His broad passion and his precise observations ("listen to the section between 3.34 and 3.40 for some of the most glorious give and take") combine to make this a hugely enjoyable and wonderfully instructive guide to Exile.

Now I've read this little volume, all I need to do is try and persuade my friend Jas to let me have another look at his unbelievably expensive book of Domnique Tarle's photos taken during the making of the album...
