Exile on Main St is a double album by English rock band The Rolling Stones, released on 12 May 1972 by Rolling Stones Records. It was their tenth studio album. Exile on Main St was written and recorded between 1969 and 1972. Mick Jagger said “After we got out of our contract with Allen Klein, we didn’t want to give him [those earlier tracks],” as they were forced to do with “Brown Sugar” and “Wild Horses” from Sticky Fingers (1971). Many tracks were recorded between 1969 and 1971 at Olympic Studios and Jagger’s Stargroves country house in England during sessions for Sticky Fingers.
By the spring of 1971 the Rolling Stones had spent the money they owed in taxes and left Britain before the government could seize their assets. Mick Jagger settled in Paris with his new bride Bianca, and guitarist Keith Richards rented a villa, Nellcôte, in Villefranche-sur-Mer, near Nice. The other members settled in the south of France. As a suitable recording studio could not be found where they could continue work on the album, Richards’ basement at Nellcôte became a makeshift studio using the band’s mobile recording truck.
bum released in the United Kingdom. The album’s music incorporates rock and roll, blues, soul, country, and gospel genres.
Although it originally received mixed reviews, Exile on Main St has been ranked on various lists as one of the greatest albums of all time.
