Product Description

Product Description

In the spring of 1971 the Rolling Stones departed the UK to take up residence in France as tax exiles. Keith Richards settled at a villa called Nellcôte in Villefranche-sur-Mer and this became the venue for the recording of much of the band s masterpiece Exile On Main Street . Stones In Exile tells the story in the band s own words and through extensive archive footage of their time away from England and the creation of this extraordinary double album, which many regard as the Rolling Stones finest achievement.

"Stones In Exile" is a fascinating documentary on the making of "Exile On Main Street". It was shown recently on BBC1. We hear from all the band members and there are contributions from many of the people who were around the Stones at the time. There's great archive footage and wonderful photographs from Dominique Tarlé, who came to Nellcôte for a day and stayed for the summer!

The bonus features (which weren't part of the BBC1 broadcast) include a great sequence of Mick and Charlie returning to Mick's old house Stargroves and to Olympic Studios in London and there are face to face interviews with each of the Stones talking in more depth about the recording of the album and what was going on around them at the time. There are also interviews with Rolling Stones fans including Martin Scorsese, Jack White, Don Was, Benicio Del Toro & Sheryl Crow among various others.

If you like the Stones, you'll love this DVD.

In essence, this is for fans of the album, which are plentiful. Its also a companion product to the remastered album, which has extra tracks, some of which were repolished and reworked.

Even at the reduced price i paid for it from amazon, i believe this could have been so much better than what you get. There's no mistaking the value for money, with 40 or so minutes of additional footage which wasnt in the televised version. However, there is an unmistakable whiff of "padding out" and the great gods themselves being a little careful even after all these years of being a little too open about some of the other things that went down during that period. As a result, it seems to be a little bit of a whitewash/ clean up, which is a bit of a disappointment.

Still, you get a fair number of contributions from everyone involved, including anita pallenberg and bobby keys. The funniest stuff, is via people like bill wyman on the extras interviews, which really seal the deal and make up for the more clinical, overpolished feel of the main documentary.

Overall, it's enjoyable, but not as deep and dirty as the album itself sounds, even to this day.

Of course it doesn't follow that a classic album should also spawn a documentary of a similar status, who's purpose is to uncover the background to the album. However, inevitably because of the greatness of 'Exile On Main Street', there is a hunger and an expectation that this DVD is going to deliver something equally rewarding. However, in a sense, this perhaps is a tall order, because the strength of 'Exile On Main Street' is actually within its music, and not within its storytelling. Needless to say, 'Stones In Exile' is nowhere near as satisfying a documentary, as 'Exile On Main Street' is an album.

There is a slickness, and an artiness within the way this documentary is directed, with its storytelling being overlayed with relevant photo's, and related video's, overlaying interviews by the members of the group and fans etc. which is informative to a degree, but the film fails to linger on what anyone has to say for very long. In a sense, style seems to dictate this documentary more than substance, although of course this film does touch on the basics, relating to the Stones becoming tax exiles and relocating to the south of France and recording in the basement of Keith's house, etc. The general mood of the times, and the almost communal living is also well explained, with interviews with the band themselves, as well as those associated with the group at the time, like Anita Pallenberg. The problem i have a little though is the fact that many of the guest interviewers who weren't around the Stones in this period tend to be geared up very much to talking about the myth surrounding the recording of the album, and the aura which has grown around this period in more recent decades, far more than any facts.

I just saw the DVD, "Stones in Exile". It is a really good documentary with lots of extended interview as extra's. This is well worth watching to anyone seriously interested in getting to the roots of Exile. It won’t get you there but it will increase your understanding. Especially about the way the Stones made songs or created them. Keith liked to play something over and over again until somehow something came to the song as opposed to going into a studio with everything ready and recording. In an interview they mention Honkey Tonk Women was recorded nine times with a piano accompaniment then on the last take it was left off leaving that amazing tempo and hesitation in the intro that does not seem so unusual when the piano is on it.
Another sense you get in the scenes from the Villa in France with kids around and common eating and general bohemian lifestyle is that it is a bygone era. The reason for much of the creativity at that time and during the late sixties was the laxation of rules and norms that you were light years away from the nine to five mind frame. McCartney also points at this concerning Sgt Pepper and the White Album, that they had 24 hour access to the recording studio, that they could make small Xmas discs for fans that were released in Fan Club mags and music mags like NME. Incidentally the Stones gave out one of these floppy 45 a plastic disc thin as paper that you played like a normal 45 (sometimes at 33.1/3 RPM) in NME called Exile on Main Street that had a sampler of many of the tracks plus a song that was not on the album, “Exile on Main- street is a strange street to walk down…..”. This song is on the DVD at the end.
If you get the chance to see the documentary called “Muscle Shoals” that is worth checking out. Here the Stones recorded some of Sticky Fingers and Keef says that if it was not for the fact he could not get into the States at the time because of drug busts “Exile” would probably have been recorded at Shoals.
