“In the spring of 1971 the Rolling Stones reluctantly departed the UK to take up residence in France. Keith Richards settled at a villa called Nellcôte in Villefranche-sur-Mer and this became the venue for the recording of much of the band’s masterpiece Exile On Main Street. Stones In Exile tells the story in the band’s own words and through extensive archive footage of their time away from England and the creation of this extraordinary double album, which many regard as the Rolling Stones’ finest achievement.
“Extensive additional footage including interviews with all the band members, footage from Cocksucker Bluesand Mick Jagger and Charlie Watts returning to Olympic Studios and Jagger’s country house Stargroves where a lot of the early work on the album was done.”
It’s like watching a long video-clip. Not very interesting, almost no relevant info on the music on Exile. Better wait for the Ladies and Gentlemen movie to come out this year (see http://www.eagle-rock.com/news/ED64A1/New+Rolling+Stones+film)
