I quite like the idea of the Stones using outtakes and then dressing them up for release. They could come up with a lot of 'new' material this way. Surely it doesn't matter if the outtakes are old...they created the material, what they do with it is up to them.

They could use 1960s outtakes and add new instrument / vocal parts....could be interesting, and we'd get a few good new albums this way.

They can't, as they don't own the rights to the 60s material.

Will the new tracks even GET played on the radio? Rough Justice didn't get played on the radio. Not even on classic rock stations.

It did here in the Midwest. For a minute and a half.

Where in the midwest, R? I was living in Evansville, IN at the time of its release and it got played on the local rock radio there for about a week.

In Cleveland, "Rough Justice," "Streets of Love," "Back of My Hand," "Oh No, Not You Again," and "Rain Fall Down" received radio airplay.

Exile On Main Street
The Rolling Stones
Universal Records 2CD set

This re-release comes in a bewildering variety of formats from single CD to box-set-multiple-vinyl-free-DVD-plus-T-shirt-give-us-all-your-money-limited-edition. The 2CD version pairs the eighteen songs from the original 1972 release with a second CD of ten further songs recorded there or thereabouts (rumours of extensive contemporary re-recording persist).

Virgin did a good Bob Ludwig remaster of the original release in 1994 and by comparison CD1 here sounds pretty much the same only louder. Of the 'new' tracks on CD2 some are mere curiosities to play once such as the instrumental Title 5, an early version of Soul Survivor where a half-hearted Keith Richards vocal degenerates into “Etcetera, Etcetera” and a slovenly out-take of Loving Cup. Good Time Woman realises belatedly that it wants to turn into Tumbling Dice the way a caterpillar wants to turn into a glittering dragonfly. The Japanese release will additionally feature an unrefined early version of All Down The Line.

More successful are the songs not officially released before. I’m Not Signifying is a relaxed and effective blues built around Nicky Hopkins bar-room piano and Jaggers’ mouth-harp. Despite being the most unlimited limited-release in vinyl history Plundered My Soul swaggers in all the right places and highlights some fabulous Mick Taylor fills and cool Jagger lyrics, whilst being oddly reminiscent of Ooh La La-era Faces. Pass The Wine plonks a recently-recorded Jagger vocal over a 1971 instrumental called Sophia Loren to create a latiny groove that goes nowhere at some length, thus saying “Mick Jagger solo LP”. Original Stone Ian Stewart playing piano on Dancing In The Light (aka Four And In) is a nice surprise and a further 60’s reference is the resemblance between So Divine and Paint it, Black. A final highlight is Following The River, the most convincing ballad here with more delicious Nicky Hopkins piano and a lovelorn Jagger.

Jagger has made it clear that any further excavation of the Stones capacious vaults depends upon this release being a commercial success. So on that basis I hope it sells. But three successes out of ten tracks is a poor strike-rate. Where is Fast Talking Slow Walking, Key To The Highway, 32-20 Blues, When You Got A Good Friend, the acoustic All Down The Line, even the ‘drunken’ Loving Cup or Exile On Main Street Blues? Compare this to the recent Raw Power re-release and weep.

Unfortunately, this is the case for all the 2009 Universal remastered CDs : don't need to buy them, just push the "loudness" button on your stereo with a Virgin 1994 CD and the result is quite the same !

i am curious about the strings on following the river, are they "original" or new and if the latter, are they "real" or "cliffordised"?

he raise some good points in this review, particularly regarding the outtakes. i'm not sure how he would know DIL is Four and In (thought that was a GHS outtake). it's obvious though mick wanted to "surprise" listeners with some cuts not even found on previous boots, which is fine, but it shouldn't have been to the detriment of the overall release. though i think mick deserves credit for putting such an effort into finding previously unheard material. the reviewers comments about PMS's faces-like sound is funny because only mick would choose to bring taylor in to play on a track that sounds like it could've came from the band his current guitarist (who replaced taylor) was a member of, a touch ironic i think. so maybe mick taylor should replace ronnie in any faces reunion (since ronnie already has a gig-well, sort of...lol),this would sort of bring it all around full circle!

nice video, too bad for them the CD is a dying sound format, probably why they are offering so many different packages and other merch. with the CD. it feels maybe, though hope i am wrong, this is happening about a decade or so too late. i think they will regret not putting out an vinyl version of the new tracks. i guess by not doing that they feel it will create (or force) more CD sales, time will tell if that strategy works.

My local record store got their copies today and consented to sell me one five days early, gonna spin it in a minute. First thought, looking at the booklet is that there are some great shots, all, I presume from the Exile book by Tarle, but that I have never seen before: a couple of Keith with the Dan Armstrong strapped on and four of the interchangeable DA pickups sitting across from him, one of Keys and Price recording horns, Nicky sitting at the piano with a cushion on the seat, Charlie at the piano (!), etc.

Now to get "prepared" and give it a listen !

Si I finally got the deluxe edition form my local CD store and finally heard the "new" Exile and the new tracks.

The Exile is great as always of course, but to be honest, I am not one of those who compare the old release with the new one, so I don't find it dramatically different. Which is good.

The reason to buy this release for me was the bonus CD. And I have to say I was impressed, I really like it, it holds together very well and really works for me as an album. I will risk and say that we finally really got the best album since Tattoo You (after hearing this about each new album :-). Strangely the track I like the least right now is Plundered My Soul - sounds a bit overdone to me - especially the vocals are somehow too screamy or how to say it, I don't really like the backing vocals. I think it si just a bit too much. The rest of the album has the sketchy feeling of the Exile with slightly drowned vocals, PMS just sounds different. I don't mean to say that I don't like it, or even that I would skip it. Not at all, just want to say I like the rest more. But it is true that I listened to the CD only 5 times or so and it needs many more spins and I know well that some songs you get tired of after a while, while other songs grow on you. So I will see.

What I would really love to know is what is new and what is original on those bonus tracs. I think one can roughly say that a lot of the music is original and a lot of the vocals are new (not Keith's of course), but I am sure there is some detailed analysis somewhere here - would someone piont me in the right direction?

So the deluxe edition is a great treat according to me and it will stay in my stereo for some time. It is a pitty that they don't treat all the new releases this way - I would go and buy them all. I just hope we will get some more - LIB and SF would be the obvious choices, but I would take any album treated this way.
