Diamonds from the Mines: In the service of being a little less “Blue & Lonesome” (even though we’re quite enjoying the state of mind the new LP brings, so thanks boys), we’ve rolled away the stones and cracked open our hermetically sealed, climate-controlled “RPM” vaults to peruse a handful of sparkling jewels and (thankfully) non-scuffed gems spanning the past half-century-plus of Rolling Stones lore, both official and unofficial. Thanks to the lovely and thoughtful presence of Ms. “RPM,” who took our pain away as we celebrated yet another birthday, we’ll be headed to New York City later this month to gaze agog at the sure-to-be mega mind-blowing “Exhibitionism” Stones show of artifacts and goodies (we hope the gallery folks have complimentary drool cups at the ready). In the meantime, we’ll content ourselves with viewing our own little wing of the little combo’s history (and we hope you will too). Among the additions, we’ve put up a clutch of Dominique Tarle’s iconic and highly sought-after “Exile On Main St.” recording session images; a few choice fan mag selections from the early ’70s, and some ultra-rare fan club 45s from the past few decades as well. See the Jack Flash Stash for all of it and much more — preferably whilst listening to your fave Stones rave at a generous volume in your own basement room, preferably with another girl (or guy) to take the pain away. To paraphrase the band’s helpful message on “Let It Bleed,” play this (photo) album LOUD.
