“Exile on Main Street,” the 1972 Rolling Stones masterpiece is being brought back to life and in celebration of “Record Store Day” on Saturday, April 17. the Stones released the never-before-heard song “Plundered My Soul,” available now in Itunes and as a single in Vinyl (with ‘All down the line’ on the b-side).
The release of the re-mastered “Exile on Main Street” is set for May 17th, and will feature nine other never–before-released pieces recorded in 1971 at Keith Richards’ home studio, in the midst of a legendary binge of drugs, sex and rock and roll.
The Universal Records release will also feature a DVD with a documentary of the anarchic and tempestuous recording sessions as well as new songs like “Aladdin’s Story,” “Dancing in the Light,” an early version of “Tumbling Dice,” “Good Time Women,” “Following the River,” alternate versions of “Soul Survivor,” “Loving Cup,” and “Pass The Wine.”
Sonic Youth, Modest Mouse, Devo, R.E.M., Soundgarden, Pavement and Them Crooked Vultures are also slated to contribute exclusive releases to Record Store Day’s efforts. Beastie Boys have announced plans to unveil a secret 7” white label single to mark the occasion with only a thousand copies available, and Blur will release their first single in seven years, also in limited edition vinyl.
Happy Record Store day!
