Mick on Larry King tonight re: "Exile On Main Street"

I thought Buddha had started a thread on the rerelease of Exile on Main Street but couldn't find it.

Lots of interesting background surfacing about the recording and the additional tracks to be included.

Larry King interviews Mick tonight. Should be interesting.

Re: Mick on Larry King tonight re: "Exile On Main Street"

Thanks for the link. Of course the good news on Exile is a great recording widely available in whatever format you prefer. The link, however, provides an interesting question of which is funnier:

1- Someone as bright as Mick being interviewed by a colossal dimwit who doesn't understand that stupid questions produce dull interviews.

2- The supposed contribution of the background stuff in the CNN piece to the appeal of the recording. I guess it's the same school of thought that suggests you need to be intimately aware of the story behind The Magic Flute to appreciate Mozart's music.

If I get your drift, the CNN background stuff to which you refer addresses the accompanying DVD's content.

What was that Mick said about 'critics'?

And in that interview, Mick said it better than I could, "In the end, it's music, and if it holds up, it holds up." And it certainly has held up.
