Rolling Stones rerelease their 10th album
Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Mick Taylor, Charlie Watts and Bill Wyman have rereleased “Exile on Main Street”, the Rolling Stones’ 10th album originally released in 1972. The new deluxe package features all new songs that were, at the time of the original recording, unfinished. Now remastered, the album includes the new tracks “Plundered My Soul”, “Dancing in the Light”, “Following the River” and “Pass the Wine”.
According to Richards, the band didn’t change what had already been recorded. “I really didn’t want to get in the way of what was there,” he said. Rather the band just filled out the body and added a few acoustic riffs. While some of the vocals were altered, the majority of the album is still in its 39-year-old form.
The album is being supported by a tour and epic picture-book. The record sales themselves give evidence of the reissue’s massive popularity, while showing younger generations why the band has been set in stone as one of the most enduing rock bands in music history.
The album comes with a second disc which includes all the unreleased collectibles recorded in Nellôte, Richards’s villa in the south of France. “Exile on Main Street” is available from WantItAll for local delivery for the best price of R318.
