As far as I am aware, this is the third incarnation of the book. The first edition I bought went as far as 1989, and the second edition 2002. I'm so glad it's been updated for the 50th anniversary. Each and every one of the Stones' 1,500+ studio and live recordings is listed, along with details (some copious, others brief) about when and where they were recorded, who was there, what they did and, where known, interesting asides and snippets of background information. There are lots of cross-references so you know where each track ended up (ie UK single, US single, album track, DVD, bootleg). Irritatingly for Martin Elliott, it must have gone to press about a nanosecond before they decided to record the two new tracks for Grrr. I have to admit I'm less interested in the live stuff than the studio stuff, but I love the fact that someone out there is even more obsessed than I am about the Stones' output and has chronicled it so lovingly. You can dip into it almost anywhere and immediately get drawn into a particular era of their history. I can't wait for the 2022 edition.

This is a book on facts. No criticism and no personal trips - just the recordings. And more then 1500 of them! Mixed in good proportions with recording and touring info, this book details all recorded input of The Stones (and many bootlegs as well). Indispensable for record collectors, very useful for an average fan. For now, this is The Rolling Stones's Recordings Bible.

The thing about the Stones is that it is always about the music, the quality of the songs, the sounds and the playing. The fact that you never tire of listening to their recordings is testament to this. So this book is arguably the most important one about the Stones unless of course the Glimmer Twins get together and do their own version.....

I needed this. I had a former edition made by an iyalian, but this is absolutely top class. I have been a fan for 50 years and still is!

The donee, to whom this was sent directly & who chose it himself, is very pleased with it & said it provided more than he'd expected. It was a replacement for an earlier edition.
