A "must" for all their fans over the last four decades

In The Rolling Stones Rip This Joint, Steve Appleford reveals the story behind the songs, recording sessions, and performances of the Rolling Stones in their long and successful career. An informative text is enhanced with more than 130 full color photographs and a profusion of black-and-white photography, a song-by-song description of the groups total output, a chronology of Rolling Stones highlights, a discography of singles, EPs, albums, and miscellaneous releases (including selected solo releases); original interviews with those close to the band (including Mariann Faithfull) and collaborators like Bobby Keys, Jim Price, and the Dust Brothers. The Rolling Stones Rip This Joint is a "must" for all their fans over the last four decades.

Utterly essential!

A great book on the Rolling Stones, following their complete story song-by-song chronologically over each album to date. The information (often quite fascinating and new even to longtime Stones fans) has been provided by first-hand participants : musicians, producers, engineers, and the Stones themselves. Great photos (mostly color) complete the package. Songs not on original LPs are presented in chronological order in the last section. A terrific browser or read-through. The best Stones-related book in a long, long time and absolutely essential!
