Exile on Main St turning 50!

12 May 2022: Exile on Main St turning 50!

Today we (at least I am) are listening to Exile on Main Street in its entirety. Exactly 50 years after the official release date 12 May 1972.
No matter if it’s your favorite Stones album or not, it has an exceptional position. No other Stones album is that mythical, periphrastic and surrounded by history, stories and opinions than Exile.

Did I say it's my favorite album...?

I think you did. I came on board in '76 with Black and Blue but quickly learned to appreciate Exile. I have bought more copies of it than any other album.

Just one thing Thommie - what the heck does periphrastic mean? I taught English for years but you've stumped me there. It sounds a little like Blackadder the Third to me smiling smiley

Seems it was delayed for two weeks and didn't actually get released till the 26th, according to Nico.

Exile was postponed to May 26.

From NME May 13, 1972:

Stones album delay
THE ROLLING STONES' new album -Exile On Main Street
will not now be available for another two weeks. Revised release date is
now May 26, instead of May 12 as originally planned. Reason for the
postponement is to ensure simultaneous release throughout the world.

Thanks for that, explains a lot! For some reason I on the inside of the album cover wrote the date i bought it: 31 May.
I bought it as soon as it was available in my local record shop and has later wondered why it took so long to arrive. Now I know!

Forgive my barging in. It means something indirect or circumlocutory.I'm not sure quite how it applies to Exile but that may well be because of my one-dimensional mind...

Sorry guys, I must have used the wrong word. What I meant was something like "written about"...

Maybe English isn't his first language. Let's not criticize.

I read 'periphrastic' as being talked about a lot with many thing said that were not necessarily true or to the point.

Regularly makes the rotation as my favourite album, along with Sticky & LIB. Every track is essential...one album that wouldn't benefit from any additional editing.

Could be the greatest release ever, except for other Rolling Stones releases.

THE.GREATEST.ROCK.AND.ROLL.ALBUM.EVER.

And "periphrastic" is actually an intriguing and unique description to use... and not incorrect. It is rather longer and more drawn out than it need be... but it is exactly this periphrastic element that makes the album so spectacularly fascinating and challenging.

My island album. If I had to decide for one it would surely be Exile.
I only allow it myself to listen to it on special occasions. And then only if I have time to listen the whole album. It's that holy to me.

Just agreeing with all the sentiment here: it's a great album that's become my favorite of all time. Loving Cup is my favorite Stones song, with Torn and Frayed close behind. And Tumbling Dice is there best single, in my opinion (over Gimme Shelter, Brown Sugar).

I'll never forget the waist high stack of Exiles LPs next to the waist high stack of Hot Rocks LPs. It was the absolute zenith for the band. A tour that made the cover of Time, and Life magazine. The Beatles were long gone. They were indeed the Kings of Rock and Roll.

I never had trouble with the album. Liked it straight off. It was THE album of the summer of '72. Hot summer nights, the Stones in town for a concert. It was an incredible time. Rock and Roll will never see a time like that again.

Well, let it loose now girl, let it all hang down
'round up those people, movin' 'em out of town
Bring me a little drink from your lovin' cup
Shake your hip mama, keep me all shook up
Feelin' so happy like a natural child
Help me do the boogaloo all down the line
Come on Virginia, let's shoot a little dice
My sweet black angel, won't you please shine a little light

It's on Main Street, strange street to walk down
It's on Main Street, low down to the ground
Exile on Main Street, strange street to walk down

Exile is one of my favorite Stones albums, great days picking up the double vinyl in 72 and jumping in the following European tour concert!

great (and long) piece here on exile by bob lefsetz:

[lefsetz.com]

he gets the release date wrong too (though corrected it in his next post)

but gets so much else right about what makes EOMS the pinnacle of a career not short on dizzying heights
