Exile - Irrésistible Aux Français Aussi

26 May 2002

Exile also graces the pages of the current (April2002) issue of France's Jukebox Magazine. Excerpts from the review by Jacques LeBlanc:

'Il sait se faire discret pour mieux les honorer, entrant dans leur saga pour en restituer des moments de grâce... Au detour de chaque page, ce livre, de chevet, se revèle un pavé d'une incroyable densité, qui permet de saisir toutes le saveurs cachées dans le vinyle de Exile on Main Street... Ces pages nous font toucher de près une époque magique. Dominique Tarlé a pris un soin extrême dans la reproduction des tirages originaux afin d'être digne des plus grands ouvrages d'art. Enfin la qualité des textes qui accompnagnent ces clichés en noir & blanc et en couleurs et la maquette font de Exile un livre exceptionnel, capable de combler le fan le plus exigeant des Rolling Stones.'

Translation follows by Oliver Craske, with due apologies to M. LeBlanc for massacring his style:

'He [Dominique Tarlé] knew how to make himself discreet in order to honour them better, entering into their life to realise from it these moments of grace... With the turn of each page, this bedside book turns out to be a paving stone of unbelievable density, which allows us to grasp all the flavours hidden in the vinyl of Exile on Main St... These pages bring us close to a magical era. Dominique Tarlé has taken enormous care with the printing of the original images so that they are worthy of the greatest works of art. And the quality of the texts which accompany these black and white and colour shots and the production make Exile an exceptional book, capable of satisfying the most demanding Rolling Stones fan.'
