The Rolling Stones Complete Recording Sessions 1962-2012 [50th Anniversary Edition] (Book)

Their career spans over twenty studio albums and dozens of international hit singles, and they have topped the charts repeatedly in every territory that matters. Their huge fan base proves eternally hungry for information and products concerning the band, and the media is, at the time of writing, alive with rumours of 50th Anniversary celebrations and activity, quite likely to include a world tour.

‘The Rolling Stones Complete Recording Sessions’ is the definitive guide to the band’s studio activity. This updated edition brings the story up to date and includes detailed commentary and analysis of each recording, along with information on recording locations, the context of the material and the band’s chronology through the only thing that really matters, their work. The book also covers details of the band’s live career, other activities such a autobiographies and suchlike, and includes a full discography. An invaluable resource for any fan, from the casual to the die-hard, this title sits alongside Ian MacDonald’s ‘Revolution In The Head’ in the category of serious and detailed studio analysis.

Some praise for the previous edition of the book (2002):

“This book serves as one of the genuinely essential sources of information for the group’s legendary recordings, and it’s damn good value to boot.” – Record Collector Magazine

"Elliott's book is a standard reference work for Stones aficionados. For anyone planning to write a major Stones study, this will be an invaluable primer." – Uncut Magazine

Martin Elliott has been a Rolling Stones collector and concert goer since the mid-seventies. He specialises on the history and background to the band’s recordings and this will be his third book on the subject, his first being published in 1990
