sammy davis jr. Far and away the red-headed step-child of Exile. Not the BEST Stones song, but my FAVORITE Stones song. Co-lead vocals w/ Mick & Keith- in fact this and Torn & Frayed may be my favorite Keith vocal ever. Awesome open-tuned slide guitar licks, great piano, and perhaps Charlie's skankiest drum beat ever put down. Great nasty lyrics, which seem to mean nothing at all. Mick Taylor gets a unusually long fade out to show his chops. A Stones Classic IMO.

Break The Spell Always an underrated gem, I love the good time yet relaxed vibe this song gives off. The lyrics are great too, love the sax solo!! Even if its a one time thing, I think they should do the entire Exile album live, its the only way to hear songs like this.

nanatod The only way you are ever going to hear the "entire Exile album live," Break, is if Trey, or Claypool, or any of their pals cover it.

Nellcote Great Topic!

Just look at these lyrics...
Sure beats the hell out of "sharks will cry"

CASINO BOOGIE

No good, can't speak, wound up, no sleep.
Sky diver insider her, skip rope, stunt flyer.
Wounded lover, got no time on hand.
One last cycle, thrill freak Uncle Sam.
Pause for bus'ness, hope you'll understand.
Judge and jury walk out hand in hand.
Dietrich movies, close up boogies,
Kissing cunt in Cannes.

Grotesque music, million dollar sad.
Got no tactics, got no time on hand.
Left shoe shuffle, right shoe muffle,
Sinking in the sand.
Fade out freedom, steaming heat on,
Watch that hat in black.
Finger twitching, got no time on hand.

blackandblue Underrated? One of the best songs on Exile. There is not much to discuss about.

Spru Casino Boogie is an all-time classic. It's a microcosm of Exile itself. I would like to see them pull a few more Exile songs out on this tour, whether it's Casino Boogie or not. Rip This Joint, Loving Cup, Shine A Light, and Soul Survivor would all be excellent choices. I've always thought Soul Survivor would fit well in an encore, like right before Satisfaction, but we know they won't do that.

"I Just Want To See His Face" would have been perfect to try out at the Superbowl with Aretha there and all.

Throwaway SD Jr: YOU SHALL BE GREETED!
Casino Boogie reminds me of driving on a warm spring day with the windows down, bathing in Exile's greatness. Keith's bass playing is wonderful, and the sax is just freakin' sublime. But then in the end MT's underrated solo mixes boogie with blues, Charlie makes the percussion even MORE jazzy..and the song ends in its three and a half minutes of perfection.
29th March 2006 06:10 PM
Soldatti A killer tune, one of the best endings of the Stones discography. The last 1:30 or so is amazing.

glencar What is the song about? A bad experience at Cannes?

Bobby fuckin Keys

corgi37 Its 1 of those songs that simply prove, in their understated genius, that no other band on the planet in the history of music could ever come close to being 1 trillionth as good as the Stones.

See, its not shredding the axe trying to cram as many notes in a minute as possible. Its not double necked guitars and over dubbing 15 separate guitar parts. Its not standing in spandex while Stonehenge is lowered behind you.

Its playing the fucking thing. Also, Casino Boogie tempo and sound makes it 1 sexy mofo of a song.

Charlie's almost out of time beat.
Mick's lyrice. Boy, he really had his shit together on Exile.
The "zoom" of the bass and drums as Bobby starts his solo.
Keith's caterwauling.

it's 1 of my fave songs to play guitar to. Mainly because it seems so easy (in the Stones music book i got that goes up to 1980 there is just 2 chords A & D), but we all know, its not the music that is written. But how its played. And, how its not played.

P.S. Does he really say "kissing cunt"?

What┬┤s the problem with Double neck guitars? I think they┬┤re really cool, and great to play in a live show...

Also, various Stones songs have many guitar overdubs, some parts you don┬┤t even know that exist
29th March 2006 10:11 PM
Left Shoe Shuffle Never heard of it.

Maybe I should check it out...
29th March 2006 10:17 PM
sammy davis jr. I'm happy people dig this tune as much as me. After thirty+ years of owning this record, I can still play it regularly and never tire of it. It just GROOVES. I forgot to mention the great sax part too.....my second all-time favorite Bobby Keyes solo.

"Kissing Cunt In Cannes"

One of the reasons I find really uptight Stones fans annoying! You look at their lives,lyrics, and then people get all bent on this board. The only topics that are wrong are ones filled with racial and religous hatred and even with those we usually push the envelope as long as it's fun.

I got the chance to see this album played in its entirety the night before the Sars Fest at the Phoenix in Toronto (I sure many of you were there also). It was probably my greatest Stones moment without actually being at a Stones show. The band apparently performs a "Classic Album" once a month and their performance of Exile was really as good as it gets.

How were they during songs like "I Just Want To See His Face" and "Let It Loose"?? Did they have back up singers?? I bet that would have been great to see.

If I remember right all singers played some type of instrument, but there were a lot of people on stage. They sounded as close to the album as it could possible be played live. I mean they had at least two singers who sounded like Mick, so you could her Mick's voice on both lead and b-up vocals. Every song was dead on and the mix was perfect.

You've stumped me. I've looked up the Sars festival, and found the Stones' setlist. I've also looked at the Phoenix Theatre's website, so I know that the Phoenix still has a band perform a classic album once a month. So, who was in the band on that particular night?

Also, the Sars festival looks really Canadian-- Jann Arden, Kathleen Edwards before she became semi-famous, Blue Rodeo, the Tea Party(!!!!), Rush, the Guess Who. So, what was Justin Timberlake doing in the mix????

Yeah, you got me. Maybe somebody local to the area knows more about the band who performs these clasic albums. All I know is that performance made the trip to Toronto for me. I hear they have done Sticky Fingers as well. The JT incident is still a tough one to deal with.

Sounds great, wish I could have heard it!! I mentioned those 2 songs as I've always wanted to hear them live.

Here is the first entry when I googled JT on the web this morning(and it's from "Ireland on-line"):

Timberlake to play 'rambo'

28/03/2006 - 15:57:35

Justin Timberlake has landed his first Hollywood leading role as an action hero in war film Stop The Loss.

The Justified star will be playing a tough renegade soldier, in a role similar to that of Sylvester Stallone's unhinged Vietnam War veteran John Rambo.

A source says: "Justin is thrilled about getting his first leading role. It is a huge challenge for him and he's excited as well as nervous."

Timberlake needs to rush if he wants to make sure his upcoming album is recorded before filming starts.

The source adds: "Justin will have to work quickly to finish the songs. He has been in the studio but he won't have much time once he starts filming."

Yikes!!!
