even the dreaded nasty piece of crap owned by Rupert Murdoch the NY Post had an article on the 5o year celebration of Exile.....still one of the greatest joys is to play that record....what a treat and thank you Stones.

My favorite studio album of the Stones and my pick if I had to be stranded on a desert island. I remember seeing the album in the record bin at my local retail store and I was so captivated with that cover that I had to buy this album. It so funny how Exile's reputation has grown over the years because initial reviews were very mixed. Exile is like a fine wine that gets better over time.

So the Stones own media specialists can’t even get the anniversary date correct? Amateurs.

When the album was released a LA radio station announced that it would play it in full with breaks after each side. I was at a laundromat just east of the Forum in Inglewood and got some dirty looks from a woman who thought I was not moving my laundry along fast enough because I was sitting in my car until a side finished before dashing in and tending to my clothes. A few weeks later I saw the band at the Forum and 6 months later again at the Forum for the Nic Ben Con. Nice to have the band around so often at the time. It was an impossible album to digest in one listen on a little radio speaker in a VW Bug. But I gladly gave it a try.

So much to disagree with. So much fun to read, though. Everyone has a different "Exile" experience, and perspective.
