“Exile on Main St.” is my favorite Rolling Stones album. It’s countrified sound is credited to the collaboration that took place between Keith Richards and Gram Parsons, some even say Gram contributed writing to many of the songs, but it’s totally a Mick and Keith show. The album has an old-timey feel but it’s still definitely British. One of the best songs on the album is “Torn & Frayed,” which is almost romantic even though it’s about a beaten down man.

And his coat is torn and frayed,
It’s seen much better days.
Just as long as the guitar plays
Let it steal your heart away,
Let it steal your heart away.

Oh, I will….
