Product Description

Review

"The Rolling Stones' 1972 American tour was bigger than anything that had come before it. [Jim] Marshall, who covered the tour for "Life" magazine, got complete access to the band, and the stunning images in this collection show the Stones in all their strung-out "Exile on Main Street"-era splendor-- recording in Los Angeles, chilling backstage and strutting across some very lucky concert stages." -Rolling Stone magazine

About the Author

Jim Marshall's photographs adorn more than five hundred album covers, spanning everyone from Johnny Cash to Miles Davis. His cover photograph for Life from this tour of a white jump-suited Jagger remains one of the enduring portraits of the master showman. Marshall, who died in 2012 at 74, is widely celebrated as the premiere music photographer, a pioneer of the genre. His portfolio includes photos of virtually every major musician of the era, not only from the early days of rock 'n' roll but including its roots in jazz, blues and country. 'With an imposing presence and gruff, forceful personality, Mr. Marshall was something of a rock star himself,' said the New York Times in his obituary. Keith Richards, The Rolling Stones (founded 1962) have influenced international culture over the last fifty years through their music.

Format: Hardcover
Why split vote? Simples-this book has some of the best photos of The Stones when they were at their peak, taken in every possible setting, the tour jet, in concert, relaxing(or just plain passed out as in the case of Keef), unfortunately far too many of them are split over two pages with a big disappearing act going on in the middle of the picture.

Whoever thought that this layout was a good idea needs to wake up!!! They should be kicked out of their job as they are ruining someone elses work and others enjoyment. It would be great to see these pictures properly presented, one page per photo. In fact if this was done I would happily pay twice of the cost of this book to buy it. It is actually annoying to see most of what you know is a great photo and miss out the middle, unless you break the books back to see it. Arghhh!

Great photos on high quality paper,not the usual rerun photos but truly excellent ones from a concentrated period (1972)admittedly of limited interest to the casual fan but for those with a deep and abiding interest it's superb.Not much text here but i feel very little needed,a great addition for the afficiando.

Of all the years to capture the Rolling Stones, 1972 was pure vintage. Whilst casual fans may not find it interesting, the photos perfectly captured the period in which they were taken. From a design point of view, it was frustrating that many of the photos were split over two pages. However there perhaps was not enough material for a larger book - making this book larger may have cheapened the effect. It is the perfect gift for a die hard stones fan. So much so, I have already purchased a copy for the friend I hold responsible for my Stones infatuation.
