Product Description

Review

The Mammoth Book of The Rolling Stones would be worth the cover price for an 80-page-80-page!- interview with Keith that appeared in abridged form in Rolling Stone magazine in 1971. Now that's mammoth. (Mike Segretto Psychobabble)

[I]f you weren't around during their heyday . . . the next best thing . . . an authentic insight into the Stones' history (Abi Jackson Bishopbriggs Herald, Springburn Herald and Kirkintilloch Herald)

The definitive collection of writing about the band. (Choice Magazine)

Book Description

A bumper commemoration of the 50th anniversary of The Rolling Stones' signing in 1963.

Format: Paperback
I bought this expecting what it says on the cover: "An Anthology of the Best Writing about the Greatest Rock 'n Roll Band in the World". Turns out this "anthology" is actually just a handful of reasonably entertaining articles, whereas the vast majority of it is the author's own reviews of every album, song, musician, producer, engineer, album cover etc. Not necessarily a bad thing, but this is actually a pretty strange one - because Sean Egan doesn't actually appear to like the Stones much at all. I'm all for a neutral and well backed-up review of any piece of work, but I'm still struggling to see which Stones albums Mr Egan actually likes. I might remember this wrong, due to all the general negativity, but my impression of his reviews is that there were a few great tracks, very few decent albums (but there's still always something wrong somewhere), and a whole bunch of crap. So you might think a song like Tumbling Dice is a wonderful, almost perfect piece of music? Not so! Sean Egan knows better than most, and when he says it's mediocre and a poor choice of single, obviously that's correct.

He also gets the various contributors' roles all mixed up, constantly blaming producers or engineers for things they may not have had anything to do with at all. Everything that's wrong (in his opinion) about a mix or master, is all down to the producer (or engineer where the Glimmer Twins produced it themselves, because he clearly doesn't understand what a producer does). The fact that the Stones' producers in most cases have had very little to do with the engineering, and often even less to do with the mixing, is a fact that passes him by. At several points he blatantly states that the producer operates the console, which of course is very often not how it works at all.

Format: Paperback
Highly readable and informative history. This will be of interest to anyone with even a casual affinity to Mick & co.

Sean Egan's text dominates, offering in chronological order a history of the band using key album releases as chapter reference points. The additional writings mainly back up what's already been laid out, so are really superfluous e.g. the interview with Keith Richard(s) loses interest well before the end.

There's no starry-eyed view of the band here - if the author thought things sucked, he says so.

Having read the book I am keen to find out more from the Stones, from their recordings and films.

Great stuff.

Can't get enough of the Stones, and this book is a very well-chosen and illuminating collection, a vital addition to the library of any fan of Mick, Keef and the boys.

Brings together interviews and articles on the band and along with the author's reviews and opinions on all their releases, you get their 50 year up to date history. You can dip into the book at any particular point, but won't want to put it down once you start, even if you've read other books on the Stones or know most of their music. Well worth it for the 500 plus pages.
