Format: Hardcover
Having enjoyed reading David Quantick's Revolution: making of the Beatles' White Album (The Vinyl Frontier), I had high hopes for this book from the same series, the subject matter being one of the greatest Stones albums, Let It Bleed. However, Egan's apparent technique of simply heaping together often rambling quotes and anecdotes from studio hands and session musicians leaves me wondering if journalists are still taught the art of precis. Die-hard Stones fans will appreciate Egan's recognition of the talents and legacy of both Brian Jones and his successor, Mick Taylor, as well as the writer's setting the recordings in the context of the Jagger-Pallenberg-Richards love-triangle and the dismissal and death of Brian Jones. However, I would advise others to simply listen to the album. The True Adventures of "The Rolling Stones" is a much better read.

i've been looking for any book on the stones that sheds light on the recording process especially during their classic period w/ jimmy miller and this is the best one so far. the others i've read don't even come close. it doesn't go into super detail such as mic types, placement, processing and the like but it's the best book in this regard hands down. and believe me i've read many. enjoy

HASH(0x9ff63228) out of 5 stars Well written and researched; gives context at this time of transition for the Stones 31 Oct. 2014
By A. Perer - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
While I couldn't believe some of the inferior songs that the author would have substituted in place of the actual tracks that ended up on the album, this is a very well written, well-researched book with lots of interesting specific details from interviews with people who were there; it gives a lot of context to help one appreciate what a time of transition this was for the Stones (Mick Taylor joins during this album). I learned a lot about Jimmy Miller's actual limited role in helping the Stones record and lot of other very specific details about everyone brought in to contribute, like Ry Cooder, for example. Egan also wrote the absolutely excellent Rough Guide to the Rolling Stones which I also highly recommend. Egan is no poseur. He's done his homework and knows his stuff. I would have preferred to give this book 4 1/2 stars, but that's not an option. Absolutely worth the time and money. Probably among the 15 Stones book you must own, as Let It Bleed is such an important transitional album, which is meant as a big compliment to Egan.

HASH(0x9f7a406c) out of 5 stars Worthwhile for the studio technicians/owners interviews 29 Jun. 2012
By LL - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book has great insider information into what the Stones recording process was like, down to the amps, mic placement, and the other approaches they took to getting their material down on tape. Egan has gotten the perspectives of studio personnel and musicians to put together a decent picture of the in-studio climate.

Good book. Did not need to put the Rolling Stones' history, at the beginning. If you are buying a book on the making of "Let It Bleed," I think one already knows their history.
