New Exile Reviews In Entertainment Weekly, Independent On Sunday And Mojo

18 Dec 2001

Exile continues to receive glowing reviews in the world's press. Giving the book a top-scoring 'A' rating, the massive-circulation US magazine Entertainment Weekly (30 November) wrote: 'Granted, this limited edition photo book costs more than two front-row tickets to the next inevitable Rolling Stones reunion tour. But it's hard to imagine a niftier collectible for die-hard fans. Tarlé's intimate shots - taken during the Stones' 1971 stay in the south of France to record Exile on Main St. - capture Keith, Mick, and various hangers-on in the studio and in repose; coupled with an insightful text, it's a rare glimpse at the creative process.'

Alongside a picture from the book of Keith seated on a wicker chair, Britain's Independent On Sunday (9 December) described Exile as: 'A deluxe present for the die-hard Stones fan... a luxurious volume of rare photos and in-depth interviews detailing the decadent life at the Villa Nellcôte in the south of France, with Keith Richards, Anita Pallenberg and vast numbers of hangers-on.'

Meanwhile Britain's leading music monthly magazine Mojo ran a 14-page feature on Exile in their January 2002 issue. Titled 'The Aristocats', the article described Exile as 'the ultimate Stones photo book... exquisitely-crafted ... probably the most intimate document of a band at work and play ever published.'
