|1972’s Exile On Main St was one of those Rolling Stones records that grew on the reviewers. It went from having lukewarm reviews in ’72 to being worshipped as Rolling Stone Magazine’s #7 of the 500 greatest rock records of all time in 2003. The Rolling Stones had no albums ranking higher than this.
But what always creeped me out was that guy in the upper left, who has three large balls in his mouth. See it? Okay …
|Reuben Wilson was ahead of his time in 1969 when he decided to depict a lady, with three balls in front of her. Although, we don’t get grossed out by seeing if she could fit them all in her mouth.
As for the “hair”, they look more like fish scales.
A CD was issued with this cover in 1997.
