Audible Editor Reviews

Hailed by some as the greatest rock-and-roll album of all-time, The Rolling Stones’ Exile on Main Street is, as author Bill Janovitz puts it, a "cocktail" that stirs together its myriad influences - the blues, soul, gospel, and country - into a wholly original and intoxicating blend that remains peerless to this day.

Along with a breakdown of each of the 18 tracks, Janovitz provides context on the professional and legal tumult the band faced before they fled to the French Rivera to record the album, and Robert Fass’ performance brilliantly captures the wit and sincerity of Janovitz’s lively prose as he describes the personal effect Exile had, and continues to have, on him.

    "Exile on Main Street"

    Being a follower of the Rolling Stones since the beginning, this book was a must to me. It gives an insight into the life, the work of the band. Five great minds in music and two in particular Jagger and Richards cannot always agree and it is shown in this book. It covers one of the best albums recorded by this band from beginning to end, a great read.
