Stones’ ‘Exile,’ Jayhawks reissued Tuesday
I don’t often preview reissues but there are a pair of special ones out Tuesday.
First, if you don’t own the Rolling Stones’ Exile On Main Street in some format, please take a minute to lower your head in shame. Not only is Exile the best thing the Stones ever did, it’s one of the best albums ever made (my No. 2 behind the Clash’s London Calling).
The other release is the long overdue reissue of the Jayhawks’ first album from 1986. Only 2000 vinyl copies were made of the original. The Jayhawks was one of the greatest alt-country bands, which morphed into an equally excellent pop band.
