Pussy Galore - Exile On Main Street (1986)


Around the time that Sonic Youth was considering covering the Beatles White Album in it's entirety (which never happened) Pussy Galore had a similar idea in covering The Rolling Stones' Exile On Main Street.  They recorded it in a true lo-fi fashion and self released it on cassette with a home made hand drawn sleeve.  The result seems to be done very much on the fly and I imagine that from conception to execution probably took a matter of days, if that even...  This album is definitely not a good album to start with for a first time listener of the band.  I would recommend Right Now or Sugarshit Sharp as a introduction and their best work.  This is truly a record collector rarity for the die hard fan.
