For more than five decades, the Rolling Stones have entertained a global audience with Mick Jagger‘s swagger, Keith Richards‘ eminent cool and a litany of undeniably classic songs.
On October 25, Hachette Books will release The Rolling Stones: All the Songs, a comprehensive coffee-table book chronicling the stories and anecdotes behind all kinds of recordings from the band over the years.
Painstakingly put together by Philippe Margotin and Jean-Michel Guesdon (who also penned similar books on the Beatles and Bob Dylan), All the Songs should definitely appeal to longtime Stones fans looking for a definitive archival take on the band’s musical output:
Organized chronologically by album, this massive, 704-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 they 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.”
