>inaugural,

I quoted directly off something official about the "first annual" in the title. It was called First Annual...irrelevant if there was ever an actual 2nd Annual. That happens a lot I have found especially with music festivals. Know how to end up with a small fortune in the music business? Start with a large fortune. Most people simply go broke and forget about future opportunities to lose more money.

But the fact remains those documents are full of holes, I pointed out at least two other instances above. But...I guess people are kool with the misinformation. Personally, when I read a blatant error in the first sentence, I disregard the rest because if they cannot get simple truths correct, the rest is very suspect.

But I guess that's just me.

I wasn't saying YOU were wrong, just that the title of it that they called it was - it never was a first annual since it was the first one.

Whatever the deal, the Stones went on at 4AM or whatever to hardly anyone and it was cold out.

Yep, and that was the prelude to Altamont. Not a great week, but I guess they did get a couple songs down in Mussel Shoals in the meantime.

It is funny how many 1st annuals there are without 2nd annuals!

Read about DIRTY WORK and STEEL WHEELS.

That bit about DIRTY WORK. Wow. What a horror. It truly represents what's inside - a mess. And then those morons didn't know where the title came from? WTF - it's from the song, dumbasses!

The group photo that's in black and white, that should've been the LP cover, and certainly a much better title. But instead we got that vomitation of Skittles cover.


STEEL WHEELS though... what a load of tripe. That is such puff it's almost sickening.

After UNDERCOVER their LP covers are horrific. They haven't had one good once since 1983 (unless you count REWIND, which is hilarious, or FORTY LICKS, which is interesting at least, as in, at least it's not bad).

As boring as BRIDGES TO BABYLON's cover is, the story behind it is fantastic.

The last bit of BLUE AND LONESOME showing various album and single covers someone was being cute on purpose because it shows the rapper cover of JUMP BACK instead of the actual cover.

The Bridges story was great! Made the album instantly more interesting.

Some great details in some of these, like the handwriting on LOVE YOU LIVE isn't Mick Jagger but Warhol’s assistant, Vincent Fremont.

If these stories were published as a book, I'd buy it immediately.

Despite all the obvious errors, you would buy a book of this?

That's strange.

This poster mostly copied the Exile material from my own work (some would say plagiarized). It was copied from an older online version and there are numerous mistakes and omissions.

I am currently working on a book/ article. I have more interesting info and pics! I am hoping to publish Exile On 42nd Street in 2022.

Perhaps a thread simply for the corrections should be started.

Preferably without the errors. But a book concentrating on the sleeves with good photos and outtakes of the photo sessions would be very nice.

Oh I totally agree with you on that, even with the few misprints I have seen, the rest of it is very interesting, if not sometimes very well researched.

I still feel it's one one of the biggest shames in Rolling Stones album history they used that front view of a poorly mutilated male joke "lion" on "Bridges to Babylon". I wonder if this was to avoid the "parental advisory" sticker or what.

Exile On Main St. Album art - [iorr.org]:

There's a mistake in the 3rd picture from above (with the caption: 'The players from top left clockwise') - in the middle it's not a picture of Jeff Webb, but of Steve Jobs from Apple -- [www.YouTube.com] - (Pos. 0:55, 1:39).

A small detail, but one that at least I’d be interested in is what fonts were used on those album covers’ artworks.

Is it 42nd Street because of Til' The Next Goodbye?

Some of the language is a bit redundant.

At the end of the BLACK AND BLUE page, it says "Or, if you prefer it is a song about Carly Simon, who rumors says
may or may not have stopped by Montauk when she may or may not have had an affair with
Jagger."

Look up the word may:

May - expressing possibility


The word just by itself implies the opposite is possible, just like "might".

Bob: It might happen.
Jim: But it might not happen.
Bob: I just said that.
Jim: No you didn't. You said it might happen.


SHAKE MY DAMN HEAD.

The songs on BLACK AND BLUE apparently were not edited to fit the LP based on the recording notes.

I just noticed something wrong in the Ya-ya's post.



It's indeed not Dominique Tarlé, but one of the cook in Nellcote.
