A look at the creation and impact of the 1972 Rolling Stones album “Exile on Main St.”

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.

Eagle Vision's new SD Blu ray range presents upscaled standard definition original material with uncompressed stereo and DTS HD Master Audio surround sound for the best possible quality.

Special Features
Extensive additional footage including interviews with all the band members, interviews with well known ‘Exile’ fans and Mick Jagger and Charlie Watts returning to Olympic Studios and Jagger’s country house Stargroves where a lot of the early work on the album was done.

Stones in Exile Review

"If any album warrants its own music documentary, it’s Exile on Main St. The Rolling Stones’ 12th record – released 40 years ago this week – is arguably their finest achievement, and probably the most fraught in the making. No surprise then that this hour-long film made to accompany Exile’s 2010 re-release is supremely riveting from start to finish. Interviewing all the then-Stones (including Bill Wyman and Mick Taylor), other contributing musicians, and people who were just there to party, director Stephen Kijak unveils all of the bizarre details, mysteries, and greatness of this landmark work.

As the film points out with gripping clarity early on, the Stones were indeed exiles of a sort when they made the record. Edged out of Britain by tax problems, they retreated to Keith Richards’ villa in the south of France in the summer of ’71 to continue a recording session that had begun in England. Mixing pictures, archival footage, and concert clips into mesmerizing conversations with everyone involved, Kijak does a magnificent job balancing the memories and opinions from this period – Keith recalling it as a druggy vacation, others revealing how hard it was to be away from home and family. Expressing a message through the music was important for the itinerant band, and Stones in Exile vividly re-creates the professional and private circumstances, the emotional turmoil and endless partying, that produced songs like “Torn and Frayed” and “Ventilator Blues,” with their mood shifts from dark to blissful, or “Casino Boogie” and “Tumbling Dice,” seemingly drawing their carefree, random attitudes right from the atmosphere."
