'Exile on Main Street', the Rolling Stones' classic 1972 album, is set to be reissued with an additional 10 previously unheard tracks. Accompanying the release of 'Exile...' is a new documentary, 'Stones in Exile,' to be shown on network television in the US and through BBC Worldwide internationally.
Produced by Oscar-winning filmmaker John Battsek and directed by Stephen Kijak, the documentary features never-before-seen archival film, photos and interviews, as well as conversations with the band and artists they have influenced. Richards said of the early footage, "I must not have noticed all the cameramen while I was making the record. I was amazed at how much footage they actually found."
The 'Exile...' reissue will be available on May 18 in three versions, as a CD with the original 18 tracks; as a deluxe CD edition with the bonus tracks; and in a super deluxe package including vinyl, documentary DVD and a collector's book.
