Stones In Exile
On 14 June 2010, Eagle Rock Entertainment release Stones In Exile by The Rolling Stones [Cat. No. EREDV786]. In the spring of 1971 The Rolling Stones departed the UK to take up residence in France as tax exiles. Keith Richards settled at a villa called Nellcôte in Villefranche-sur-Mer and this became the venue for the recording of much of the band’s masterpiece Exile On Main Street. Stones In Exile tells the story in the band’s own words and through extensive archive footage of their time away from England and the creation of this extraordinary double album, which many regard as the Rolling Stones’ finest achievement.
This title features contributions from all the band members: Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts, Bill Wyman and Mick Taylor. Also featured are contributions from: Martin Scorsese, Jack White, Don Was, Caleb Followill (Kings Of Leon), Benicio Del Toro, Will.I.Am (Black Eyed Peas), Sheryl Crow, Anita Pallenberg, Ronnie Wood, producer Jimmy Miller, engineer Andy Johns, photographer Dominique Tarlé and sax player Bobby Keys.
BBC TV broadcast the main 60 minute show on Sunday May 23rd but the Stones In Exile DVD features extensive additional footage including interviews with all the band members. The DVD also offers bonus footage from Cocksucker Blues, Mick Jagger and Charlie Watts returning to Olympic Studios and even footage from Jagger’s country house Stargroves where a lot of the early work on the album was done.
Stones In Exile is a fascinating and entertaining document lifting the lid of the creation of a truly timeless album. Fans of The Rolling Stones will be spoilt for choice by Eagle in 2010 and this release will be followed by release of the fully restored legendary Exile tour film Ladies And Gentlemen…The Rolling Stones in Autumn 2010.
