He's talking about 11 (!) previously unreleased songs in the reissue.

Good news.

It goes like this:


Cominciamo da Exile On Main St., che verrà ripubblicato.
"Ho mixato 11 brani inediti. Alcuni sono piuttosto interessanti (ride, "risucchiando" la saliva, ndr)".

Per esempio Following The River...
"Sì, è una ballata al piano".

Che parla di un uomo che lascia una donna.
"Esatto (ride, ndr)".

E Plunder My Soul, in cui una donna lascia un uomo. Anche qui c'è il piano, ma è più rock.
"Diciamo che è più una commedia...".

Poi, Sophia Loren. Come mai questo titolo?
"È solo un titolo in lavorazione, non la chiameremo così. Per ora è così solo per attrarre le persone... (ride, ndr)".

Come avete scoperto queste tracce? Perché per tanto tempo sono rimaste negli archivi?
"Quando la casa discografica mi ha domandato se volevo ripubblicare Exile On Main St., ha chiesto ad alcuni "esperti" dei Rolling Stones di inviarmi tutti i demo a disposizione. Erano dei bootleg. Mentre li sentivo, per la prima volta mi sono detto: "Aspetta un attimo, ma queste cose non provengono dallo stesso periodo (di Exile On Main St., 1972, ndr), no, queste sono state fatte in altro momento, probabilmente alla fine degli anni 70, forse nei primi anni 80...".

In pratica te ne eri dimenticato?
"No, per niente. Dovevo semplicemente capire con precisione quando fosse stato fatto, perché Exile On Main St., non venne registrato in una sola volta, ma nel giro di tre anni. Così sono dovuto tornare indietro nel tempo con la mente e cercare ulteriori tracce degne di essere pubblicate. Ho ascoltato nastri su nastri".

C'è una dichiarazione del tempo in cui affermi che il disco non ti piaceva. Hai detto: "Questo nuovo album è pazzo. Ci sono così tante tracce differenti. È molto rock&roll, ma non volevo una cosa del genere. Sono la persona più sperimentale del gruppo, non mi piace fare e rifare sempre la stessa cosa".
"Robaccia. Non è vero".

D'accordo, ma cosa ne pensi oggi?
"La cosa buona di quel disco è che è interessante se visto come opera intera, nella sua integrità (è l'unico album doppio dei Rolling Stones, ndr). La sua caratteristica principale è che non possiede molti brani "accessibili". L'unico brano che ha avuto successo è Tumbling Dice, ma per il resto non ci sono stati così tanti brani orecchiabili come in Some Girls (1978, ndr). Le altre canzoni di Exile furono comunque bene accolte ai tempi. È un album molto interessante, con tanti diversi stili musicali, il blues, un po' di country, un po' di rock&roll e un po' di qualcosa che non può essere messo in una categoria. Diciamo che rappresenta bene la buona estensione musicale degi Stones, che è eclettica perché ha avuto influenze eclettiche. Come album, sta insieme piuttosto bene. Quindi, sì, mi piace, anche se non lo ascolto mai".

Prima parlavi di "tornare indietro nel tempo". Una volta hai dichiarato che "devi stare attento a non rimanere intrappolato nel passato o rischi di non comprendere più le cose che intorno a te cambiano". Il passato è una trappola per te?
"Dico che non dovresti ammirare il tuo passato tanto da impedirti di fare altro. Nessuno naturalmente vuole rimanere intrappolato nel passato, ma a me piace abbastanza scartabellare tra le vecchie cose, riportarle alla luce e vedere com'erano e che cosa ne è rimasto oggi. La verità, per tornare a Exile, è che la casa discografica mi ha così tanto implorato di tirare fuori queste cose che ho ceduto. La mia reazione iniziale è stata: "Non me ne frega davvero niente di questa roba, non voglio cercare niente". Ma loro insistevano: "Oh, per f-a-v-o-r-e-e-e, puoi solo dare una veloce occhiata, siamo certi che qualcosa di buono ci sia..." e così alla fine è stato proprio divertente fare questa ricercare. È stato come rovistare in soffitta, spulciare in un baule di vecchi abiti ed esclamare: "Oh, guarda questo! Un tempo lo indossavo! Non posso crederci!" (lo dice alzando le mani a mezz'aria come se stesse reggendo un vestito immaginario, ndr)".

La prima volta che sei salito su un palco avevi 19 anni. Però hai sempre detto di sentirti un cantante.
"Mi è sempre piaciuto cantare e ho sempre cantato, però non ho mai pensato di poter fare il cantante. Non un cantante di professione, solo per divertimento. Una cosa da fare durante le vacanze".

Non eri sicuro, dentro di te, di poter fare meglio dei cantanti che ammiravi?
"Alla fine, sì. Sapevo di poter essere come loro. Anche se i tuoi eroi rimangono sempre degli eroi. Pensi che sia troppo difficile essere come loro, ma alla fine ti rendi conto che non è così".

Quali erano i tuoi eroi?
"Elvis Presley e Little Richard: quest'ultimo, lo idolatravo. Per me era fantastico. Sono stato molto fortunato perché il primo tour dei Rolling Stones è stato proprio insieme a Little Richard. Lo guardavo ogni sera, da così vicino, così attentamente nei dettagli... Lui era davvero carino nei miei confronti. Gli piaceva l'entusiasmo dei ragazzi giovani. Si curava di me, mi stava dietro, e mi ha dato un sacco di idee. Io lo osservavo interagire con il pubblico, per capire come facesse. Dava tutto quello che poteva al pubblico. Puoi andare davanti alla gente, semplicemente suonare e salutare, perché a volte i performer sono piuttosto timidi; oppure interagire con loro e portarli all'eccitazione. Io ho imparato così, guardando lui e James Brown. Ecco: eccitare il pubblico: questa è la cosa più bella dell'esibirsi".

È difficile pensare a te come a un performer timido, anche semplicemente agli esordi.
"I Rolling Stones erano così ingenui agli inizi. Ma timido, no, io non lo sono mai stato".

Ci avrei scommesso.
"Lo so (ride, ndr)".

Quando uscì Aftermath (1966, ndr) stava iniziando la stagione dei figli dei fiori. Ma quel disco era piuttosto duro: c'erano canzoni come Stupid Girl e Under My Thumb che stridevano con il sogno di pace e amore.
"Ricordo solo che è stato interamente registrato a Los Angeles, nel '65. Lo considero un retaggio dell'ingenuità dei primi anni 60".

I temi però non sembravano così ingenui. Siete anche stati criticati per i contenuti di quel disco.
"Non così tanto...".

Cantavi di "ragazze sciocche". Le femministe non ti hanno attaccato?
"Così, così. A quei tempi il movimento femminista era ancora debole. Se l'avessimo fatto dieci anni dopo sarebbe stato peggio".

Il movimento hippie ha significato qualcosa per te?
"Ho sempre pensato che fosse una grande stronzata. Certo, c'erano delle cose interessanti nel movimento hippie, ma se volessimo essere critici potremmo dire che si è trattato solo di una sciocca tendenza e che non ha significato nulla. Se invece volessimo guardare al movimento hippie all'interno del suo contesto storico, diremmo che è stato uno sforzo per cambiare le regole di una società vecchia. Per esempio, in Inghilterra ci sono molte persone che vivono così, che scelgono uno stile di vita "alternativo", che ormai è stato accettato dallo stile di vita mainstream. Hanno i loro festival, solitamente associati alle credenze pagane della Gran Bretagna, e sono un sottogruppo della società. Gli hippie esistono ancora, vanno a Glastonbury e vivono per un po' come hippie. Ma non è il mio stile, no?".

È vero che poco prima di formare i Rolling Stones facevi il gelato?
"Non lo facevo, lo vendevo solo. Ed era pure di cattivissima qualità! Era un lavoro estivo. Ho sempre e solo fatto dei lavoretti, non ho mai avuto un lavoro vero e proprio (ride, ndr)".

Sei molto fortunato.
(Ridacchia, ndr)

Avevo letto una notizia che diceva che volevi acquistare un camioncino ambulante di gelato.
"Oh, no, non credo proprio. Però, hai rastrellato per bene in Internet sul mio conto! (ride, ndr)".

A volte è divertente. Stavi armeggiando con due cellulari prima. Non sei una persona tecnologica?
"Credo che per come sia il business della musica oggi, sia necessario esserlo. Io comunque lo sono sempre stato. Per esempio, nello studio di registrazione ci sono dei macchinari enormi e complessi e mi piace lavorarci...".

Parlo della tecnologia utile per l'informazione. Computer, iPhone, che ne so, cercare con Google il proprio nome su Internet...
"Non cerco il mio nome su Google (detto con voce molto seria, ndr). Questa è una cosa davvero tremenda da fare. Non cercare mai il tuo nome su Google! Conosco alcuni attori che lo fanno, ma non è una buona idea".

Perché?
"Un mio amico attore comincia ogni giornata cercando il proprio nome su Google. Poi, rimane sconvolto per parecchie ore, perché trova cose orribili sul proprio conto. Specialmente ora che su certe persone molto è stato detto o scritto, poi, ne saltano fuori tra le più assurde; e c'è tanta gente che scrive su argomenti di cui non sa nulla. Non si deve fare. Mai cercare il proprio nome su Google".

Da quando Keith è caduto dalla famosa pianta di cocco...
"Sììì (voce contrita, ndr)".

... ha cominciato a parlare della morte in modo più rilassato. Hai mai avuto qualche esperienza vicina alla morte?
"No. Non sono nemmeno mai caduto dalla dispensa (ride, ndr)".

Ne hai paura?
"Credo che tutti ne abbiano".

In Sway (edito in Italia da Einaudi, ndr), il romanzo bestseller sui Rolling Stones "satanici", ci sono dei dialoghi tremendi tra di voi. Cosa ne pensi?
"Ho letto una recensione che ne parlava male, così ho lasciato perdere. Dio, che libri imbarazzanti! Ma sai qual è la cosa più ridicola? Che sicuramente le nostre reali conversazioni sono molto più tremende di quelle inventate lì! (ride, ndr)".

in a nutshell, mick had to be convinced to go through old recordings and it wasn't that easy to actually find the ones that were made during the Exile period. Once they convinced him of searcing through the old material, he actually came to enjoy it. Really seems like 11 "new" songs smiling smiley

Sounds very very interesting. Thanks Lorenz for the quick summary. I'm looking forward to read the whole interview.

Kudos to the people who convinced Jagger to do it!!

11 songs?! That a new album!!!

Here's what Google Translate gives us. Not perfect, but you can easily understand all that's interesting:


We start from Exile On Main St., which will be republished.
"I have mixed 11 unreleased tracks. Some are quite interesting (laughs, sucks the saliva, ndr)".

For example Following The River ...
"Yes, it's a piano ballad.

What about a man leaving a woman.
"Yeah (laughs)."

And Plunder My Soul, in which a woman leaves a man. Also here is the plan, but more rock.
"We say that it is more a comedy ...".

Then, Sophia Loren. Why this title?
"It's just a working title, do not call it that. For now it is so only to attract people ... (laughs)."

How did you discover these traces? Because for so long remained in the archives?
"When the record company asked me if I wanted to republish Exile On Main St., asked some" experts "by the Rolling Stones to send all demos available. They were bootlegs. While listening to them for the first time I said "Wait a minute, but these things do not come from the same period (Exile On Main St., 1972, note), no, these were taken to another place, probably in the late 70s, maybe early 80s. .. ".

In practice you forgot you had it?
"No, not at all. I had to understand just exactly when it was done, for Exile On Main St., was not recorded at once, but within three years. So I had to go back in time with the mind and seek additional tracks worthy of being published. I listened to tapes on tape. "

There is a statement of the time stating that the disk you did not like. You said: "This new album is crazy. There are so many different tracks. It's very rock & roll, but I did not mean a thing. I am the person most experimental of the group, I do not like to do and redo the same thing."
"Crap. It is not true."

Okay, but how you feel today?
"The good thing about this disc is that it's interesting when seen as a whole work in its integrity (the only double album by the Rolling Stones, ed). Its main feature is that it has many tracks" accessible. "L ' only song that has been successful and Tumbling Dice, but otherwise there were so many catchy songs like "Some Girls (1978, ed). The songs of Exile were still well received at the time. It is a very interesting album, with so many different musical styles, blues, a bit 'of country, a little' rock & roll and a little 'something that can not be put into a category. Let's say that represents well the good extension degi Stones music that is eclectic because had eclectic influences. as an album, is set pretty well. So, yes, I like it, although I do not ever listen. "

Before I spoke of "going back in time." You once said that "you must be careful not to remain trapped in the past or is likely to understand, the things around you change." The past is a trap for you?
"I say that you should have seen your past stop you from doing so much more. Nobody wants to be trapped naturally in the past, but I quite like flipping between the old things, return them to the light and see how and what is left today . The truth, to return to Exile, is that the record has so much begged me to pull out of these things that I gave. My initial reaction was: "I do not really care about any of this stuff, I will not try anything . But they insisted: "Oh, favoreee, you can only give a quick glance, we are confident that there is something good ..." and so in the end it was really fun doing this research. It was like rummaging in the attic, groom in a trunk of old clothes and exclaim, "Oh, look at this! Once I wore it! I can not believe it! "(He says, raising his hands in the air as if holding an imaginary dress, ndr)".

The first time you went on stage she was 19. But you always said to hear a singer.
"I've always liked singing and I always sang, but I never thought you could be a singer. Not a professional singer, just for fun. One thing to do during the holidays."

You were safe inside you can do better than the singers that you admire?
"Eventually, yes. I knew I could be like them. Even if your heroes are always heroes. Think it's too hard to be like them, but eventually you realize that it is not so."

What were your heroes?
"Elvis Presley and Little Richard: the latter, idolized him. For me it was fantastic. I was very lucky because the first tour by the Rolling Stones was precisely with Little Richard. I watched him every night, so closely, so closely in details ... He was really nice to me. He liked the enthusiasm of young boys. He cared about me, behind me and gave me lots of ideas. I watched him interact with the public, to understand how do. He gave everything he could to the public. You can go in front of people, just play and healthy, because sometimes the performers are quite timid, or interact with them and bring them to the excitement. I learned so, looking at him and James Brown . Behold excite the public: this is the best thing ESIB.

It's hard to think of yourself as a shy performer, even just in its infancy.
"The Rolling Stones were so naive at the beginning. But shy, no, I have never been."

I would bet.
"I know (laughs)."

When he came out Aftermath (1966, ndr) was starting the season of flower children. But that record was pretty tough: there were songs like "Stupid Girl" and "Under My Thumb" that conflict with the dream of peace and love.
"I remember only that it was entirely filmed in Los Angeles in '65. I consider it a legacy of ingenuity of the early 60".

The issues do not seem so naive. You also been criticized for the contents of that disk.
"Not so much ...".

Singing of "foolish boy." Feminists do not have attacked?
"So, so. At that time, the feminist movement was still weak. If we had done ten years later would have been worse."

The hippie movement meant something to you?
"I always thought it was a big shit. Sure, there were some interesting things in the hippie movement, but if we were to be critical, we could say that it was just a silly trend and that did not mean anything. If we were to look at hippie movement within its historical context, we would say that was an effort to change the rules of an old society. For example, in England there are many people who live like this, who choose a lifestyle that is "alternative" which is now was accepted by the mainstream lifestyle. They have their festivals, often associated with pagan beliefs in Great Britain, and are a subset of society. hippies still exist, go to Glastonbury and live for a while 'as a hippie. But it is not my style, no? ".

It is true that shortly before forming the Rolling Stones were doing the ice cream?
"I did it, sells it alone. And it was also of very bad quality! It was a summer job. I always just did odd jobs, I never had a real job (laughs)."

You are very lucky.
(Chuckles, ed)

I read a news story that said that you wanted to buy a truck peddler of ice cream.
"Oh, no, do not think so. But, you've raked for good in the Internet on my account! (Laughs)."

Sometimes it's fun. Were struggling with two mobile phones before. You're not a technical person?
"I think for how the music business today, it is necessary to be so. I still always have been. For example, in the studio there are enormous and complex machines and I like to work ...".

I speak of the technology useful for the information. Computer#$%&, as I know, look in Google your name on the internet ...
"I looked for my name on Google (a very serious voice said, ndr). This is a really awful thing to do. Never search your name on Google! I know some actors who do, but not a good idea" .

Why?
"An actor friend of mine starts every day trying their name on Google. Then, still upset for several hours, because he finds horrible things about themselves. Especially now that some people on a lot has been said or written, then they jump out of the most absurd, and there are many people who write on subjects of which he knows nothing. You should not do. Never search for your name on Google. "

Since Keith has been dropped from the famous coconut tree ...
"Yeah (voice against, ndr)".

... began to talk about death more relaxed. Have you ever had any near death experience?
"No. I'm not even ever fallen from the pantry (laughs)."


You have fear?
"I think all they have."

In Sway (published in Italy by Einaudi, ed), the best-selling novel about the Rolling Stones "Satanic", there are tremendous dialogues among yourselves. What do you think?
"I read a review that talked about evil, so I did not. God, what books embarrassing! But you know what is the most ridiculous? Surely our real conversations are much more dire than those invented here! (Laughs) .

So, were the three mentioned titles earlier barely a kind of teaser to "attract people"? There is eleven unreleased tracks actually, and it could be the case that there is not even one called "Sophia Loren"?

Very pleasent to know that Mick likes digging the archives nowadays. I recommend him more of that! It's a great hobby but you could make few pennies out of it, too!"

As I understand the translation, Mick says that Sophia Loren was only a working title on the song, a name with no connection to the the lyrics/contents, and which they kept today as an attention grabbing song title. After all, I don't think they're working on completing the songs with new contents.

Since Mick only mentions the three previously mentioned titles (see Uncut, Rolling Stone mag?), I wouldn't be surprised if those are the only previously unheard songs and the rest are early versions of knows songs, like Tumbling Dice, Loving Cup and All Down the Line. Still, 11 extra tracks is much more than I dared to hope for. And I'm still hoping for live/video material!

i dont think micks the kind of guy that would mention 11 tracks on an interview that was specific about the reissue of Exile if that eleven were not to be released. In fact the newspaper (on the paper versione) made the title out of it: "In arrivo 11 brani inediti" (11 unreleased tracks coming)

Re: Mick Jagger interview on italian newspaper about Exile Reissue
Date: January 23, 2010 16:33

11 trax?! Wow!!!

I hope it really happens. On the issue of really inedit stuff (this expression for me excludes original alternates, live rehearsals, b-sides, although these are always fine, and also the aeternal nasty collector swindle industry game of remixes) since Bill has left the band , we´re deprived of our 'ally' from within.
Since Bill was perhaps the most hardcore collector ever of its own band.

Mr. Michael Phillip was always our greatest 'enemy' on that point.

I hope the band really let out those 11 inedit songs and that it sells like no re-baked Stones compilation has ever did. This happening, I am sure our old London School of Economics bloke´s mind will be changed.

And then maybe we Stones collectors shall be happy forever.

P.S. This hapening, I am $ure the old shyness in in releasing no-Ronnie stuff gets behind too.

How did you discover these traces? Because for so long remained in the archives?
"When the record company asked me if I wanted to republish Exile On Main St., asked some" experts "by the Rolling Stones to send all demos available. They were bootlegs.

The record company asked some "experts" to send in their Exile-era bootlegs, and they sent in stuff from the late 70s and early 80s? Man, that's funny. Sounds like "experts" with an agenda. "Screw Exile! THIS is the stuff you should be releasing!" Either that, or they were just really stupid "experts".

And LieB,the google translation is OK.

11 unreleased tracks ? I would really like it specially I 've been just asking myself so many times: why has there been no "Stones Anthology" ? I can’t understand why the Stones " business "is so concerned with £xx seats for a gig (plus £25/30 t-shirts multiplied by 2 or 3 ) ??



I am a Frenchie ,as Mick affectionately called them in the Old Grey Whistle Test in 1977 .

Probably the same 'experts' that put together the brilliantly researched liner notes for Rarities!

Anyway, if this is all true, its great news. Sounds like we're getting a separate CD of material as I'd expected.

Yeah, it does. The reporter mentions the album is being reissued and Mick specifically mentions the number of unreleased, mixed songs he had at his disposal for the project. I dont think he'd do that if he wasnt talking about releasing them.

The translation is quite loose. dont forget :

Q We start from Exile On Main St., which will be republished.
A I have mixed 11 unreleased tracks. Some are quite interesting (laughs, sucks the saliva, ndr)".


My translation :

Q - Lets start by talking about Exile On Main Street, which is being reissued.

A - There are 11 mixed, unreleased tracks - some are quite interesting!

Yeah, it does. The reporter mentions the album is being reissued and Mick specifically mentions the number of unreleased, mixed songs he had at his disposal for the project. I dont think he'd do that if he wasnt talking about releasing them.

The translation is quite loose. dont forget :

Q We start from Exile On Main St., which will be republished.
A I have mixed 11 unreleased tracks. Some are quite interesting (laughs, sucks the saliva, ndr)".


My translation :

Q - Lets start by talking about Exile On Main Street, which is being reissued.

A - There are 11 mixed, unreleased tracks - some are quite interesting!

Does it mean there will be 11 bonus tracks contrary to the 3 mentioned on Amazon?

Doesn't mean he's going release all 11 of them. He said "some are quite interesting". That sounds to me like he's only going to release the "interesting" ones.

seems like my posts are quite transparent...confused smiley

i am italian and i have the print version of the newspaper

above the title of the interview it reads: "In arrivo 11 brani inediti"

That means: "11 unreleased tracks coming"

I hope so this sounds good. Just to get Jagger interested is encouraging.

Question is, why did Mick do this interview in an italian paper? And nothing in an english speaking media? Meaning that if he did this for promotional reasons, he would reach a whole lot a more people being interviewed in an english paper.
Anyway, our italian colleagues shared this one, so thanks.
