John Perry "Exile" book reissue
Posted by: johnnythunders ()
Date: June 20, 2014 16:49

My friend John Perry is reissuing his (definitive?) book on Exile On Main Street for Kindle, e-book, etc

He needs an arresting image for the cover, and one that is not covered by copyright

He would like to know if anyone on this excellent forum has any good suggestions as to what could go on the front 'cover'

Two further factors:
1. A lot of people will be viewing the 'book' on smartphone or similar so cover design has to look good when small
2. The release has to work for young people and newcomers to the Stones i.e. not just the experts on this board

Over to you!

Many thanks in advance

hi johnnythunders,

i could offer you (or john perry) to take a look at my artproject 'exhibition on main st'. all copyrights are on my side.

here is my cover/poster for my exhibition, i designed it in the style of the album, maybe this could be an opportunity for you, too:



you may also have a look at all 50 artworks of this series at:
[exhibition on main st]

best regards,
artofstone

So cool. Will be thinking about it...but in the meantime did he approach any of the usual Nellecote photogs to ask for copyright waiver? What had been the cover photo?

Cool -- I looked into a source for any relevant shots that might somehow be in the public domain but did not find anything - sorry.

This is the John Perry from The Only Ones, amazing I have seen The Only Ones perform in Zaandam The Netherlands the 8 April 2008, and if you are looking for an image I probably have one in my Art-archive, I will need an email-address?

Hip Shake - Live ?
Posted by: johnnythunders ()

John Perry is updating his Exiles book. He has asked whether the august IORR forum could advise him whether Hip Shake was ever played live (other than the '72 OGWT Montreux rehearsal)

Thanks in advance

Never live that I know of

Rehearsed, but never played live.

Along with IORR, these resources might assist with Mr. Perry's research:

Good book, is he going to review the bonus tracks?

Re: John Perry "Exile" book reissue

What do others think - should a look at EOMS encompass the CD bonus tracks?

I'd say only in a special chapter.There is only one original Exile.

Let's hope he can get a photo from France 1971 for the cover

Here's another question you may be able to help with.

Everyone quotes the ANDY JOHNS line about coming back at 6am to record the second rhythm guitar on ROCKS OFF. Gets quoted over & over & over.

But the original quote (unless someone has mangled it) seems to be saying
the track recorded on return is not Rocks Off but TUMBLING DICE.

Hear for yourself

[www.goldminemag.com]

Transcript - Andy Johns:

"It went on for ages. When Mick came back from Paris for the first time
he seemed happy with the sound. And Keith would sit down stairs and at
one point he sat there for 12 hours without getting out of his chair
just playing the riff over and over and over.

And then one night, it was very late, four or five in the morning, Keith
says, ‘Let me listen to that take again.’ And he nods off while the tape
is playing. I thought, ‘Great. That’s it. End of the night and I’m out
of here.’ So I go back to my place where I was staying. (Horn
player/arranger) Jim Price and I had this villa. It was pretty spanky.
[swanky?] I’m
tellin’ you. A half an hour drive. I walk in the front
door and the phone is ringing. I pick it up and it’s Keith. ‘Where are
you?’ ‘Well, I’m obviously here ‘cause I answered the phone.’ ‘Well you
better get back here, man, ‘cause I have this guitar part. Come back!’

And I returned and it’s now six in the morning and he played the counter
rhythm guitar of “Tumbling Dice” which was another Telecaster track, a
second rhythm track, the whole thing just came to light and it just knit
the whole thing together. That was one of my favorite tunes. Keith used
to sleep with his guitars.

It was a very busy mix. It was very difficult to mix. At Sunset Sound I
tried mixing it a couple of times and it wouldn’t work. On the last
batch Mick called up and said ‘Come back. We can’t beat your mixes.’ I
mixed about another 12 songs in a marathon session. I would just leave
the booth to have a piss and just go back in the room and that was it.
For some reason I brought ‘Tumbling Dice’ up and it just started to
work. Sometimes it happens that way."

Can anyone here shine a light on this?

Thanks

I have this book it's excellent.

I would like to see John comment on anything that has come to light since it was first published although I guess that would largely be the Exile bonus tracks.

Why don't you use a good quality scan of the cover of the well known TMOQ boot Welcome To New York ?
Surely not copyrighted ?

Did JP go to Cotham Grammar School in Bristol ?

Brown Moses - the answer to your last question is apparently "yes" !

Then I wonder what is the 'counter rhythm guitar' on Tumbling Dice? There are some chops here and there, but in my ears nothing clearly stands out as being a 'counter' part to the main riff.

I thought so.
I'm 51 so he must have been a few years above me ;-)

Yeah same here. Great rhythm section, Perrett's unique talent and i love JP's guitar
playing - a lot of bite, attitude and rhythm but also a lot of melody. I think the second album was even better.
Never read his Exile book but would love to get a copy.

It's a great book, got it back in 2004 I think. A lovely read. Exile surely is the ultimate desert island record.
