Purchased on Mighty Ape

Very good purchasing experience. I made an order online but then was confused about the contents of my purchase so I sent through an enquiry to confirm what I was actually buying. The team came back to me very quickly and were most helpful. Once I'd put through my payment the package arrived two days later in perfect condition. Very hard to find new Vinyl records these days at a reasonable price so all and all very happy with purchase and would certainly recommend to anyone. More than just a website – the team behind the scenes make your experience personal and pleasent. Cheers, Andrea Smith.

Description

Regarded as one of the greatest albums in rock history, The Rolling Stones' classic album Exile on Main Street receives the Deluxe Edition treatment with an additional 10 never-before-heard tracks.

Upon its release more than three decades ago, Exile on Main Street innovatively wove varying musical genres, instruments and even artists into a compelling rhythmic masterpiece. This new compilation features 10 tracks originally recorded during the Exile era and only recently discovered while working on the reissue project.

The original 18-track double-album was recorded in various stages at multiple locations, including Olympic Studios in London, Keith Richard's mansion Nellcote in France, and in Los Angeles where the literal “Main Street” influenced the album title. Exile reveals a sprawling mix of genres with undertones of blues, country, R&B and gospel mixed with lyrics that fervently demand for release and liberation.

“The album's riveting portrait of artists pushed - by the times, by themselves - to the very limits of their creativity has provided inspiration to every musical generation that has come along since Exile was released in 1972,” said author Anthony DeCurtis. “Every song on Exile on Main Street is elevated by its relationship to the music that comes before and after it. The album's irresistible power is unlikely to diminish any time soon.”

Exile on Main Street will be available in two CD formats: the original 18 track release; a deluxe CD edition with the 10 special bonus tracks; and a super deluxe package that also includes vinyl, a 30-minute documentary DVD with footage from Cocksucker Blues, Ladies and Gentlemen… the Rolling Stones and Stones in Exile, and a 50-page collector's book with photos from the Exile era. The 10 unreleased tracks were produced by Jimmy Miller, The Glimmer Twins and Don Was.
