The Rolling Stones All the Songs Expanded Edition: The Story Behind Every Track Hardcover – 31 May 2022
Enhance your purchase
An updated edition of the most comprehensive account of the Rolling Stones' work yet published, with the full story of every recording session, every album, and every single released during their nearly 60 year career.The Rolling Stones have been recording and touring since 1963, selling more than 200 million records worldwide. While much is known about this iconic group, few books provide a comprehensive history of their time in the studio. In The Rolling Stones All the Songs, authors Margotin and Guesdon describe the origin of every song the band has released, details from the recording studio, what instruments were used, and behind-the-scenes stories of the great artists who contributed to their tracks.Organized chronologically by album, this massive, 760-page hardcover begins with their 1963 eponymous debut album recorded over five days at the Regent Studio in London; through their collaboration with legendary producer Jimmy Miller in the ground-breaking albums from 1968 to 1973; to their later work with Don Was, who has produced every album since Voodoo Lounge. Packed with more than 500 photos, All the Songs is also filled with stories fans treasure, such as how the mobile studio the group pioneered was featured in Deep Purple's classic song "Smoke on the Water" or how Keith Richards used a cassette recording of an acoustic guitar to get the unique riff on "Street Fighting Man."
Three years ago, one of the books I was most excited about was Philippe Margotin and Jean-Michel Guesdon's All the Songs: The Story Behind Every Beatles Release; this October will bring The Rolling Stones All the Songs: The Story Behind Every Track (Black Dog & Leventhal, Oct.). Margotin and Guesdon combine a passion for music with thoughtful and comprehensive research, resulting in ready-reference that doubles as the ultimate coffee-table book. There's an entry for each song, along with a sumptuous array of images and anecdotes galore. It may only be rock and roll, but fans will like it (yes, they will).--Mahnaz Dar, Library Journal

A great read and welcome addition to the Stones Library.Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 14 November 2016
Like the authors' previous books on Bob Dylan and the Beatles this is a kind of "Revolution In The Head" analysis of every song the Stones have ever recorded; referencing the date and place of recording, the date released, the genesis of the song, details of the recording process and a review of the song itself. The former are very factual and tie in with other books I have so can in my opinion be relied upon. Re the reviews there is an obvious element of subjectivity but since the opinions are very well expressed and intelligently presented they are not likely to cause offense, and I found myself in broad agreement in any case. A great read and welcome addition to the Stones Library.
