The new version of the legendary double album has arrived not only with a noticeably cleaner and sharper sound than previous CD versions but also with a second disc of previously unheard material.
David Joseph, the head of the Rolling Stones' label Universal Music UK, told the BBC, "It's quite a result for an album from 1972 to be back at No. 1. It proves the Stones's music is as powerful today as when it was created."
The new edition of 'Exile on Main Street' kept dance act Faithless from pole position whose new album, 'The Dance,' -- their first since 2006's 'To All New Arrivals' -- entered the charts at No. 2, while LCD Soundsystem's third original album, 'This Is Happening,' (rumoured to be their last) wriggled into the Top 10 with a No. 7 placing.
But it seems that the Rolling Stones aren't the only people celebrating the grim days of high taxes, power cuts and the three-day week. Supporters of newly promoted football team Leeds United have propelled the team's 1972 single, 'Leeds Leeds Leeds (Marching on Together),' to No. 10 in the UK singles chart.
