RS617 – Rolling Stones 50 2012 Hardback Book (UK)
On 12th July 1962 the Rolling Stones went on stage at the Marquee Club in London’s Oxford Street. In the intervening fifty years the Stones have performed live in front of more people than any band… ever. They’ve played the smallest blues clubs and some of the biggest stadium tours of all time. They’ve had No.1 singles and albums in every country that has a popular music chart and have helped define global popular culture. A phenomenal half-century later, they now look back at their astounding career. Curated, introduced and narrated by the band themselves, The Rolling Stones 50 is the only officially authorized book to celebrate this milestone. With privileged access to a wealth of unseen and rare material, it is packed with superb reportage photography, contact sheets, negative strips, outtakes and so much more, from every period in the band’s history. With more than 1,000 illustrations, it also features some of the most rare and interesting Stones memorabilia in existence: international posters, draft record cover art, bubblegum cards, jigsaws and other previously unpublished treasures specially photographed for this volume. The ephemera comes from the greatest Rolling Stones collection in the world, which belongs to Ali Zayeri. Featuring photography from the Daily Mirror’s archive and with contributions by photography legends Gered Mankowitz, Jean-Marie Périer, Dezo Hoffmann, Michael Cooper, Terry O’Neill, Bent Rej, Philip Townsend and many others, this is the definitive celebration of fifty years of the Rolling Stones. Hardback, 352 pages. It measures 25.5cm x 30.5cm (10 inches x 12 inches). The book is still sealed in its original plastic. The condition is near mint.
