RE: The White Album vs. Exile on Main Street
The White Album is automatically disqualified because of “Revolution #9” & “Why Don’t We Do It In The Road?”
“Exile” automatically wins because Keith, unlike on the Expensive Winos experiment, sings the livin’ bejesus out of a couple of classics and Mick hasn’t yet become a parody of himself.
For anyone still on the fence, The Beatles (and I love the Beatles) could never have recorded a great album while strung out on smack. Not even John.
And finally, and definitively, it ain’t country without the western and it sure as hell ain’t rock without the roll!
