The Rolling Stones are placed on the UK album chart with the reissue of their legendary album “Exile On Main Street’. It is sixteen years since the band that got together for the last time. When this happened with the album “Voodoo Lounge”. State media say Monday.
“Exile On Main Street” was originally published in 1972 and includes the songs “Tumbling Dice” and “Rocks Off”. The album released earlier this month and contains additional ten previously unreleased tracks. Next month will appear on the DVD “On Stones Exile”, a documentary about the making of the album.
“It is impressive that an album from 1972 ends up back at number one”, said David Joseph of Universal Music. “It proves that the music of the Rolling Stones as powerful today as when it was made”.
The album title refers to the “exile” of the band, who was left out of England because, according to the Stones too much tax should be paid. The album was completed at Los Angeles.
