Treasures from the 1972 north American tour keep trickling in. The joy of finally having these photos in a quality book at a reasonable price is balanced by the sigh of bewilderment that it took so long. These are wonderful images, and some say more than the proverbial 1,000 words. Most pages have only one photo per page, but in many cases one photo spans two pages and is ruined by the crease. The captions aren't all correct, but the editor admits that they are still researching that aspect. The woman standing stage left with the bowls of rose petals is not explained; would have been nice if they had mentioned that Mick liked to toss rose petals on the audience and the stage in the closing number (in later years he would toss buckets of water). One image is labeled Midnight Rambler, but there are rose petals on the stage, so it's more likely Street Fighting Man which closed most of the shows. Thanks to everyone who worked to get this book produced. My hope is that a book with images from Nellcote summer of 1971 and the other photographers who worked the 1972 tour will be published.

The first Stones concert that I saw. The tickets were chosen by lottery. I used every possible permutation of every employee's name and address and got four tickets to each of the three concerts. To determine how loud they could play through the Tycobrahe sound system,(page 126 - 127) a Boeing 707 taking off at JFK was measured at 180 decibels. Rather than throw light from the back of Madison Square Garden, a concave mirror was suspended thirty rows from the stage. "Super-Trooper" lights were positioned behind the amps and the operators aimed their lights at the reflections of the performers.(Page 146 -147) The band was at their peak with Mick Taylor hitting his stride. I went to the second concert at MSG. The office manager went the night before and when I asked how they were, she said, "Those guys are really bad!" It was the first time I had heard the word "Bad" to mean "Good"!.

This is a very nice little book. Wonderful photos that evoke a special time. Some of the captions are perhaps wrong - in the description of venues - but that does not detract from the images which are themselves splendid. Jim Marshall was a wonderful guy and this book is a nice memory for me of the man and his work.

Best behind the scenes photo book on the Stones. Some of Marshall's best photos. There's not much to say, if you like the Stones buy this book. If you like Marshall's photos buy this book. If you are a budding music photographer and want to see how behind the scenes music photography should look BUY THIS BOOK.

It's just a top-notch book all around. The subjects, the images, the book quality. Don't buy a cheap used one. Get a good copy. You'll wanna keep this around.

Amazing book. Had only seen a few of the photos before. Nothing needs to be said about Marshall's photography. This hardcover highlights the Stones in their prime, and for the price, it feels like I stole it! Waited 40 years for this to come out. Thanks!

Jim Marshall's photos have always shown the wild 72 US Tour of the Stones in glorious, glossy shots. So many of his pics are classics, and we've seen them hundreds of times, in books and mags. I guess JM made sure that we get mostly previosuly unseen photos here, and I appreciate that. Nice backstage shots. And not only of Jagger and Keith, but Wyman and Charlie too. The only odd part about the book is the small size.

This book is mostly pictures but assuming you are a hard-core Stones fan it is a must have. One thing I observed from the pictures is that Keith Richards is a nail biter as evidenced on the cover with him staring at his fingers.

Highly recommended for Rolling Stones fans and collectors. It captured the essence and the energy of one of Rock's best tours ever!
