streetmouse, I'm sorry, but you are WRONG big time on this one (in my opinion) ! Unlike any other Stones album, 'Exile' has a relentless, overpowering feel to it that justifies its double length, because the passion and powerful rocking feeling to it seems to mount as the album goes on. And more so than other Stones albums (with the possible exception of 'Beggars Banquet'), 'Exile' dedicates itself to the band's commitment to their blues and country roots. "Rocks Off", "Rip This Joint", "Tumbling Dice", the entire contents of side two, "Let It Loose" and the entire contents of side four...they're just unbeatable. In fact, this is one of rock's strongest double albums as it has only one song that I would consider a truly weak track ("Turd on the Run"). The interplay of the guitar riffing between Keith Richards and Mick Taylor is compelling and amazing throughout the album. There's no getting around it - 'Exile on Main Street', along with 'Blonde on Blonde' and 'Layla and Other Assorted Love Songs', is one of the three best double albums in the history of rock and roll. It's just an amazing salute to the Stones' roots and it needs to be listened to in one sitting. A five-star album if there ever was one.

wonderbrat: you were 14 years old in 1975. In 1972 Exile had been just released and put in very big piles in the middle of the record shop, me being 18 years old btw. The Beach Boys, yes the Beach Boys, released a double album at that same moment, a new one,"Carl and the Passion, So Tough". So what? It was coupled with Pet Sounds as a bonus. I had been so in love with Surf's Up the year before and hardly didn't know Pet Sounds despite its fame. So this was my chance to go deeper into the BB circus. "The Stones can wait, I can't afford both", I remember that moment of doubt and pain so well. I never regretted my choice, Brian Wilson took possession of my ears. Exile took revenge slowly/surely: the next year I was hooked for the rest of my life. The number one and two of all time albums are indeed these two records, forever climbing up. They have nothin' in common, so wide apart. Only in that record shop moment, they join hands, side by side. I hate those anecdotical stories about how and when people bought this and that record, btw. Let it loose, let it all calm down.

Hi Rolling Stones fans, I don't see it, but I will be adding a new version of Rolling Stones Exile on Main St. with a T-Shirt Limited Numbered Edition. Just wanted to let you know.

Is anyone familiar with a Shelley pressing of this album? I have a copy and the matrix ends in "LY". From what I have found that is indicative of the Shelley Pressing plant. I've seen info on a Shelley pressing of other Stones albums but no this one. If anybody reads this and has any info that would be greatly appreciated. I apologize if this isn't the appropriate place to ask the question. I'm somewhat of a neophyte when it comes to discogs and editing/adding releases. Thank you!

Can anyone help me with one thing? On my version of this record it says on the "Matrix / Runout: ROLLING STONES RECORDS ST-RS-722509 COC 69100 C2" not C1 as listed here. Everything else looks the same.

An astonishing lp. It's difficult to think of a better double album than this one. 'Blonde On Blonde' maybe, but this has more variety. This was the last time the Stones did anything good. Tragically they continued for another 40 years and in so doing destroyed rock and roll as a concept relevant to teenagers
