I have written before about Exile on Main Street. I love all the tracks. The LP includes something for everyone and works on a base level in my brain. By that I mean it somehow stimulates endorphins as I immediately feel more content with myself and life while listening to it.
Exile on Main Street by the Rolling Stones
Exile on Main St is a double album by English rock band the Rolling Stones. Released on 12 May 1972 by Rolling Stones Records. It was their tenth studio album released in the United Kingdom. The album’s music incorporates rock and roll, blues, soul, country, and gospel genresWikipedia
I have to say I came late to this album as – even though I am old 😉 – I am also a little young to have it register on my personal “Top of The Pops” chart in my head when it was first released. But my man was quick to introduce it to me when we got together 7 years ago. From the very first listen, the songs and the vibe of the music resonated with me. And as I mentioned above, the experience gave me a feeling of well being. Not to mention many of the songs just make you want to jump up and shake your hips.
I now have many happy memories of the times my man and I have listened to the album alone and with others. Hearing the first few chords reminds me immediately of heady days when I fell for my man and we were in what could be known as the honeymoon period. All this adds to the music therapy Exile on Main Street provides for my mind, body and soul.
