    Its all Stones. Phish covered the entire album, with Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings guesting on a few tunes. Speaking objectively, its worth the listen, they dont get into the heavy jams they do with their regular shows.

    Right on. The band is comprised of extremely talented musicians; thats kind of an objective statement. Even the harshest Phish critics will concede that the band are all masters of their interment (outside of vocals). The part about them most people dont like is their proclivity to go off on lengthy improvs, with lots of changes, and detachment from the original song. When they went cover to cover with Exile, they cut out a lot of their exploration.

    I missed that. But, I did make a trip to the book store on Sunday to buy his new book "Deal."

    Also, I'm wearing my JG Alligator t-shirt right now.

    Do you know in what context? The recording process? The famous '72 tour for the album? I'm curious because it's a pretty mythical time for the Stones

    Tracing the creation of Exile on Main Street from the original songwriting done while touring America through the final editing in Los Angeles, Bill Janovitz explains how an album recorded by a British band in a villa on the French Riviera is pure American rock & roll. Looking at each song individually, Janovitz unveils the innovative recording techniques, personal struggles, and rock & roll mythmaking that culminated in this pivotal album.

    Awesome! Did you write that synopsis, or did you copy/pasta? If you wrote it, you're quite a wordsmith :)
