The original 18-track double-album was recorded in various stages at multiple locations, including Olympic Studios in London, Keith Richards' mansion Nellcote in France, and in Los Angeles where the literal "Main Street" influenced the album title.
Friday, May 14, will end with a screening of "Stones in Exile" a documentary about the recording of the Stones 1972 album and the film complements the release of the reissue "Exile on Main Street." "Stones in Exile" will be released on DVD on June 22 by Eagle Rock Entertainment.
"We're very excited that 'Late Night with Jimmy Fallon' is devoting a special week to 'Exile on Main Street' with our new documentary 'Stones In Exile' premiering for the first time ever in the U.S. on Friday," said the Rolling Stones.
"Exile on Main Street is one of the greatest records of all time," said Jimmy Fallon. "I am a huge Rolling Stones fan and it is a dream come true to celebrate the re-release of the album here at Late Night."
Available in the US on May 18, the week-long event will culminate in a special limited commercial broadcast on Friday, May 14.
