Popular on Rolling Stone

Popular on Rolling Stone. In that light, Exile on Main Street is not just another album, a two-month binge for the rack-jobbers and then onto whoever’s up next. Backed by an impending tour and a monumental picture-book, its mere presence in record stores makes a statement. And as a result, the group has been given a responsibility to their audience which can’t be dropped by the wayside, nor should be, given the two-way street on which music always has to function. Exile on Main Street is the Rolling Stones at their most dense and impenetrable.

Whether Exile is your favorite Stones album or not, John Perry's book will be one of your favorite Stones books. Perry has written one of the most concise summaries of the influences of power struggles, financial disaster and creative conflict on the Stones. Perry explores the history behind each track, often giving references to the bootlegged outtakes Stones fans crave.He also tells the inside story of each track, focusing upon the contributions of individual musicians to the final product.

An excellent book. Brief, but exact. A must to read. Thanks to Robert Greenfield to include it in his references

Am I interested in what the author thought of the album, or what LPs his brother bought?

I can't really explain why but the Rolling Stones' "Exile on Main Street" is my absolute favorite collection of music. Sometimes I wish my absolute favorite album could be something a little prettier, a little more melodic like "Pet Sounds" or "Abbey Road" or "Astral Weeks" or "The Band" or "Blood on the Tracks." And all those *are* extremely high up there.
But the bottom line is, if I were being shot into space tomorrow and could only bring one album with me, I wouldn't even have to think about it, it would be "Exile." I might consider "Kind of Blue" for a second but then I'd think, "I'm going into space, I have to have 'Shine a Light' with me!" "Exile" has been the background music for so many drives and so many sitting around evenings, so many hours of my life, and it's never gotten old, I never seem to tire of it or stop hearing new things in it.
I'm going to get to the book itself in a second but here's something I found while Googling yesterday. The late, great critic, Lester Bangs wrote this about the album: "Exile is dense enough to be compulsive: hard to hear at first, the precision and fury behind the murk ensure that you'll come back hearing more with each playing. What you hear sooner or later is two things: an institution for nonstop getdown... and a strange kind of humility and love emerging from a dazed frenzy."
That's it. He nailed it. And writer John Perry does a good job of digging behind the murk with his examination of the album. He's clearly a big time fan of the music and shares a lot of insight into it with a track-by-track analysis. Most importantly, the book also includes contemporary magazine reviews of the album that ran when it first came out. Since "Exile" is an album that almost has to grow on a listener to some extent, some of the conclusions the writers make are amusing to say the least. He also includes essays about the album and a little history.
The book isn't perfect -- Perry is interesting but he doesn't have a dead-serious critical edge, and I really wish the publishers had had access to better archive pictures and better reproduction. But this is still a good book to have if you want a better understanding of one of the greatest pieces of pop culture ever created. It even pointing out a snore (presumably Keith's) which I'd never heard before.

So much has been written about the Rolling Stones and their music and so much has been rubbish. Most writers have not had access to the band members and fall back on well-worn second or third-hand stories. John Perry doesn't recycle anything, he writes about what he knows, beginning with the historical background of Exile and following with a song-by-song examination of the album itself. Although he clearly has a deep love for this music, he is no star-struck fan, he sees the Stones' human flaws, but he isn't distracted by them, this is no parade of scandals as are so many books about this band. And in contrast to most rock writers, Perry actually knows and plays music, and his detailed breakdown of this great album literally note-by-note is superb. The combination of rich historical background and detailed musical analysis makes this a rare gem in the Rolling Stones library. I recommend this book highly, especially for musicians or those interested in the flesh-and-blood of what many consider one of rock's most important albums. My only complaint is that it isn't a hundred pages longer.

As a french stones'fan since the beginning I would like to share with you all the good and the best I think of this book just received from Amazon...It's not the same old stuff repeated again and again along the years but a complete new studyresearch... * On the songs...(each one with 2 to 5 pages) * A short but personnal history of the band.. * Different reviews in Rock mags in 72 * A very recent 14 pages conversation with Anita P and her souvenir of 6 months in France! The low point is the lack of original photos from Nellcote area and the cover design!...but as a whole this book is great and I recommand it to you all.. you wont'be deceived..and the price is not high..
