FOR HISTORICAL PURPOSES ONLY

The Rolling Stones were in Los Angeles in 1972, recording at Sunset Sound, after spending part of the previous year living in the south of France for tax reasons. There, in the basement of Keith Richards' rented villa at Nellcôte, they had recorded the basic tracks for their next album. When they were in California, those tracks became the core of "Exile On Main Street."

In Los Angeles, photographer Robert Frank used Super 8mm to film the Stones as they walked along Main Street in LA's skid row.
(See: http://maps.google.com/maps?f=d&sourc... )
He also filmed them in Bel Air, a posh suburb nearby.

Frames from this reel were famously used throughout the cover and inner sleeves of "Exile."

As available on DVD, it appears that the original film was cut into short strips (perhaps for Frank's convenience in his darkroom?). As a result, nearly all sequences were out of sequence. Frank also edited the 8mm film with other footage he had shot of New York City's skid row, The Bowery. FOR HISTORICAL PURPOSES, only the Rolling Stones parts are shown here and they have been re-arranged and slowed down.

RIP THIS JOINT
(M. Jagger / K. Richards)

Mama says yes Papa says no
Make up you mind 'cause I gotta go
I'm gonna raise hell at the union hall
Drive myself right over the wall

Rip this joint gonna save your soul
Round and round and round we go
Roll this joint gonna get down low
Start my starter gonna stop the show
Oh yeah

Mister President Mister Immigration Man
Let me in sweetie to your fair land
I'm Tampa bound and Memphis too
Short Fat Fanny is on the loose
Dig that sound on the radio
Then slip it right across into Buffalo
Dick and Pat in ole DC
Well they're gonna hold some shit for me

Ying yang you're my thing
Oh now baby won't you hear me sing
Flip flop fit to drop
Come on baby won't you let it rock

SOUL SURVIVOR
(M. Jagger / K. Richards)

When the waters is rough
The sailing is tough
I'll get drowned in your love
You've got a cut throat crew
I'm gonna sink under you
I got the bell bottom blues
It's gonna be the death of me
...
That's what I'm talkin' about
Soul Survivor
