Slow news day today, and let's face it, you're just sitting there waiting until you're allowed to go get drunk outside somewhere. So until that time, I recommend reading this NY Times piece
, by Ben Ratliff, about the Exile on Main Street reissues
that came out this week. Of all the words that have been spilled over them this n the past few days, Ratliff's are the most interesting: he presents Keith and Mick's conflicting takes on the album's legacy and the degree to which Nellcôte, the French villa in which parts of it were recorded, actually added to it's hazy, drugged-out vibe. One wonders what it's like to be in a room with Mick and Keith, considering they seem to agree on basically nothing. Anyway, Ratliff killed it here. Enjoy. Then go get drunk.
