It may be two more years until The Rolling Stones’ Exile On Main Street celebrates its 40th anniversary, but the group decided “hey, let’s celebrate it early”. The band have approved a new remaster of the album, so you are able to not only buy the new remaster as is, but a “Super Deluxe Edition” of the album will be available for the diehards.
This deluxe edition will featured two vinyl records, three CD’s, a DVD documentary about the album, and a 50-page book documenting the making of the album and what it became after its release on May 12th:
In celebration of the 38th anniversary, the NBC late night talk show Late Night With Jimmy Fallon has established the way of May 10th as “Rolling Stones Week“, with various artists appearing on the show throughout the week performing one song from Exile On Main Street. They include Phish, Keith Urban, Sheryl Crow, and Green Day. On Friday, the Stones In Exile documentary will make its world premiere on the show with “limited commercial interruption”. If you’ve ever wondered why so many people look to Exile On Main Street for inspiration, and you’ve been curious as to what the fuss has been about, watch Fallon from May 10-14th.
