“Exile” hits No. 1 in Blighty

Rolling-stones-200-080708The Rolling Stones’ 38-year-old magnum opus “Exile On Main St.” hit No. 1 on the British
album chart this week, according to a Sunday evening report from BBC
News.

The expanded Universal reissue of the album, which had
reached the pinnacle on its original release in 1972, is the first
Stones collection to hit the apex of the U.K. list since “Voodoo Lounge”
did the trick in 1994.

It remains to be seen if sales will be
potent enough to lift the album to the top in the U.S. Most
prognosticators believe that “Exile” will have to settle for No. 2
stateside, since “Showstoppers,” the latest collection of music from the
hit Fox show “Glee” — a title that wasn’t a factor overseas — will
likely deny the Stones’ assault on the peak here.
