    It has been on my turntable throughout the last year. I have a used copy that has quite a bit of noise on it but I still listen to it.

    Yes I do have a CD of it but I like the sound of the vinyl better.

    "Exiles" comes about #4 or 5 in my book.

    I agree with Sticky Fingers being their best album.

    "Get Yer Ya Ya's Out" comes in second.




    I am just partial to the Mick Taylor years. I learned a lot listening to his solos.

    I agree. It was the peak of a very ripe period.

    Sticky Fingers is a brilliant album but I can't say it's their best album because that would be like deciding which baby I like most.

    with the huge success of Exile these days, it is now safe to say that there will be a remasterd (probably extended) version out for the 40th anniversary next year.

    which CD edition do have, Chet? CBS? they suck!
    my 71 vinyl is pretty crackly too.

    Can't remember when I bought the CD.

    I do hope they reissue Sticky Fingers on vinyl again.

    I cannot believe I'm doing this, but...



    I agree with you, Chet.

    Let It Bleed is a close second, for me.
    Followed by Ya Yas and Goat's Head Soup. IMO.

    Yup; once the Beatles were out of the way, that whole era was when the Rolling Stones really established their identity, and Mick Taylor was a big part of it who doesn't get nearly the credit he deserves.

    Sticky Fingers or Let It Bleed, for sure.

    Here's mine:

    1 - Aftermath
    2 - Let It Bleed
    3 - Beggar's Banquet
    4 - Exile On Main Street
    5 - Sticky Fingers

    If the four other albums on this list had as much (deserved) ballyhoo these days, I wouldn't be quite so suspicious about Exile's current royal status.

    I think I had Afternath but never listened to it. :lol:

    Beggers Banquet was OK but had too much acoustic for me. Just something about it never really did it for me.

    I like the European version of "Aftermath."

    Neither does Jimmy Miller. btw Mick just canceled his tour, health is failing again. If you have a chance to see Mick you'll say oh crap that's where that sound came from.

    Sticky, Let it bleed, Exile the holy Trinity of Stones albums.

    "Sticky Fingers" takes 2nd place for me.
    i give the edge to "Let It Bleed"...especially my doctored version: through the miracle of I-tunes, i've added the single "Honky Tonk Women" to my revised cd. makes a great bonus track

    Gotta agree! Stcky Fingers, then Ya-Yas, then Let It Bleed, then Exile...and then Some Girls-to me, that's the last great Stones album, but opinions vary...
