May 18th "Exile On Main Street" reissue..."regular," "deluxe," and "super deluxe" editions


The Rolling Stones classic Exile on Main Street one of Rolling Stones highest-ranking Greatest Albums of All Time is returning as a very special reissue. On May 18th, Universal Music Group is re-releasing the album with 10 never-before-heard tracks, including Plundered My Soul, Dancing in the Light, Following the River and Pass the Wine, that were produced by Jimmy Miller, the Glimmer Twins and Don Was. The disc also features alternate versions of Soul Survivor and Loving Cup.

Mick Jagger tells Rolling Stone when the record company asked him to dive in his files for possible bonus songs, he initially believed the band had used all theyd written on the 1972 double album (read RSs original review). I went back in the archives and dug out a load of things, he says. I added some percussion and some vocals. Keith put guitar on one or two. Jagger wrote fresh lyrics for Following the River, but other than some light revisions to the other songs, I really wanted to leave them pretty much as they were, Keith Richards says. I didnt want to interfere with the Bible, you know. They still had that great basement sound.

A deluxe edition of the reissue will also include Stones in Exile, a documentary directed by Stephen Kijak that tracks the making of Exile, along with footage from Cocksucker Blues and Ladies and Gentlemen the Rolling Stones. After seeing the Exile film for the first time recently, Richards says, I must not have noticed all the cameramen while I was making the record. I was amazed at how much footage they actually found.

The Exile on Main Street reissue will be sold a CD featuring the original 18 tracks or as a deluxe CD edition with the 10 bonus tracks. The super deluxe package includes vinyl, the 30-minute documentary DVD and a 50-page collectors book with photos from the Exile era.

2. This makes me suspect even more that they are going to tour with Mick Taylor...
they need a hook for a tour
Ron Wood is a drunken fool
it doesn't matter that Taylor is out of shape; he's a brilliant player who never moved on stage much anyway
and no one really wants to hear their current shit

5. Seems to be, but still nothing like Wood
and with Taylor's talent to spare, he doesn't need his full faculties.

6. But does it include the postcards?
I bought the album when it first came out. There was a set of postcards, connected together, showing scenes from "The fall," basically the group and a few other people. By the last card, they had all fallen and there was a cloud of dust or something. When I went away to college, my stepmother threw away all of my stuff including all my record albums. I remember that postcard thing well.
