At the beginning of 1972, I don't think that anybody under 30 really knew which way to go...

Amidst a lot of hype, here in 2010, today's the re-release with some bonus tracks &c of a little album called Exile on Main Street.

About eight years ago, Joseph wrote something here about that double album that people might like to revisit:

"Nixon of course won big and eventually lost bigger. Also, you could look it up but 1972 was the last year there was no Nobel Prize for Peace awarded—Kissinger and the North Vietnam chairman won it in 1973. Exile on Main Street remains fresh and exciting, a definitive moment in shaping the course of times and music to come. In 1972, the Nobel Prize for Peace could have easily gone to Keith Richards, tax-evader, drug consumer, sex addict, and musician, whose work somehow has been far more enduring and especially much more moral, by nearly any standard, than Hank's."

Best to you,

custodian of old things since 1902
