Rolling Stones return to top of album chart
Monday 24 May 2010
The Rolling Stones scored their first British number one album in 16 years Sunday after re-releasing one of their classic records, "Exile on Main Street.
The ageing rockers held off dance band Faithless to grab the top spot in the album chart, the first such achievement for the band since 1994's "Voodoo Lounge."
"Exile on Main Street," which features tracks such as "Tumbling Dice" and "Rocks Off," already made it to number one when initially released in May, 1972 and contains eclectic influences from blues and soul to calypso.
A documentary about the making of album was given its world premiere at the Cannes film festival during the week.
