Win a copy of The Rolling Stones – Exile On Main Street Deluxe Edition (US Only)

EspyRock is giving one lucky fan in the US the chance to win a free copy of The Rolling Stones re-issued album ‘Exile On Main Street’; better yet, it’s the deluxe edition.

Regarded as one of the greatest albums in rock ‘n’ roll history and one of the most defining of the Stones’ catalogue. Upon its release more than three decades ago, ‘Exile on Main Street’ innovatively wove varying musical genres, instruments and even artists into a compelling rhythmic masterpiece. The original 18-track double-album was recorded in various stages at multiple locations, including Olympic Studios in London, Keith Richard’s mansion Nellcote in France, and in Los Angeles where the literal “Main Street” influenced the album title. These atypical circumstances surrounding the recording process greatly affected the album’s outcome which was highly reflective and influenced by the sociopolitical turbulence that marked the late `60s and early `70s. The Stones nixed the influences of a flower-child era and directed their creative process with the edgier, excessive, “more is more” approach of the `70s. Exile reveals a sprawling mix of genres with undertones of blues, country, R&B and gospel mixed with lyrics that fervently demand for release and liberation. The 2-CD version is a 3-panel digi-pak, 2xCDs with a 12 page booklet. The Digipak is printed in reverse board double white to keep an ‘uncoated’ feel like the original LP release. The 2nd disc features 10 tracks originally recorded during the Exile era including ‘Plundered My Soul’, ‘Dancing in the Light’, ‘Following the River’ and ‘Pass The Wine’ plus alternate versions of ‘Soul Survivor’ and ‘Loving Cup’.
