The Rolling Stones 1972 50th Anniversary Edition

£30.00

The year 1972 brought together two legends of rock ‘n’ roll at the peaks of their careers: Jim Marshall and the Rolling Stones. Selected by LIFE magazine to photograph the Stones’ EXILE ON MAIN ST. tour, Marshall had a week of unlimited access. The results are his now-iconic images of the band, onstage in their full glory and backstage in moments of unguarded camaraderie. Marshall’s ability to capture the essential spirit of an artist and the transformative power of music is matched only by the Stones’ larger-than-life energy. Fifty years after these photographs were taken, they retain the power to thrill and inspire. This definitive edition presents the images as they were meant to be seen: at a larger size and in the rich, high-contrast tones Marshall favored. The original content is enhanced with never-before-seen proof sheets and two new essays by photographer and film director Anton Corbijn and Nikki Sixx of Motley Crue. This is the ultimate, immersive experience of one of the greatest moments in music history.

 The photographs are amazing – the Stones are still practically children, messing around, pulling faces and writing the odd song.    GQ  


“The finest single collection of Stones photographs I have ever seen” Bill Wyman

In 1965 the Rolling Stones were big and about to be huge, when Bent Rej was given unprecedented access to a year in the eye of the rock ‘n’ roll storm, accompanying the band on its first full European outing: the Satisfaction tour.

Long a fan favourite, this brand new edition offers an even closer look into the making of music history with images recently unearthed from Rej’s archives.
