I had hoped this book would go into much more depth on who played what with the Stones but the book itself is woefully incomplete.

I am a fan of Martin Elliot's past editions of this book. This book has everything! Although the book says "Complete recording sessions - every song the RS played - in concert, TV, warm up released on Vinyl, CD and even bootleg is mentioned here!Everything known is reported here - the date(s) or approximate, studios session players, availability -single album (including compilation). There is information here the many other RS books dont even include. Each song is numbered then listed in the index , when there is a considerable gap of not recording -the author brings us up to date about the stones activities -whether it be tour, vacation, members filming a movie, band lineup changes etc. I remember when this book wasnt even release - I counted the days! I obtained a copy and meticulously read/retainedreread, highlighted attached postits. This book is a fans ()and especially a writers DREAM! Lots of interesting facts are included throughout the book - I just couldn't stop reading it - but the book is huge! It will take a while.( Mr Elliot I have one addition for you - John Regan played bass on "Winning Ugly" He is also the bass player on Dancing in the Street". I tried emailing you and Cherry Red Books - no luck....Anothere thing readers - ya won't find any mistakes in this book - Martin Elliot is THE MAN! tHANK YOU.

Over the past 50 years, the Rolling Stones have crafted some of the most memorable rock 'n' roll music of all time. Martin Elliott's THE ROLLING STONES COMPLETE RECORDING SESSIONS 1962-2012, 50TH ANNIVERSARY EDITION is the authoritative, perceptive and sometimes witty guide to that musical legacy.
Within the book's 455 oversized pages, Elliott details 1,000+ Stones' tracks. The first, dating from January-March 1962, was 'Around and Around.' The last, from April 2011, is 'Watching the River Flow.' For each song, Elliott provides composer, length, play dates/sites, personnel including sidemen, title of the album(s) the song appeared on, sometimes detailed summaries of the song's creation/evolution/etc. and so on.
Though the track-by-track format takes a little getting used to, Elliott's book proved to be an enjoyable goldmine of information on Stones' recordings and group dynamics. Recommended.
5.0 étoiles sur 5Best book for Hardcore fans; Two other discog books of note for more casual fans19 juin 2014

I really like and am impressed by the Complete Recording Sessions-50th Anniversary by Martin Elliot. (For those looking for a little more general discograpny, then see the last paragraph of this review.)This covers every song that is known and every session. 1422 songs and/or sessions. This is great especially if you want to know about songs on bootlegs, different versions of various song of differing length, etc. This books has just an amazing amount of detail, a lot of which more casual fans would not care about, but more serious fans will consider gold. Very little in the way of art, but that's not its purpose. Its purpose is to cover the recordings, and it does that very very well, better than any other book available.
This is the only book I'm aware of that really goes in depth with each and every recording (those actually released and those only on bootlegs) and tells you who originated the track, who played on it, and any other circumstances worth noting. To have put together this book can only be one of the most tedious jobs ever, and the author, Martin Elliot, has done several iterations of the book to keep it current. He notes important things like different recordings of the same song versus when a track was just edited down to be released on a different album. If you are a die-hard fan like me who wants every version of the their really great songs from the 70's, then this book is essential. I'm particularly interested in who played guitar on many of tracks when they were deciding who they would choose to replace Brian Jones. This book really covers it. And there are songs that Mick Taylor played on in the 70s that didn't come out until the 80's. This book covers all that kinda of information. So many types of info about so many topics can be found here relatively easily. This book is as well organized as the information allows.
There are two other Discography books out there, Complete Discography by Alan Clayson and one by Steve Appleford. (It appears Appleford only wrote one book but that it was put out under several titles but as I only own one title of his I can't be sure). I wrote a comparison of all three under the Amazon listing for "The Rolling Stones: It's Only Rock and Roll: Song by Song" by Steve Appleford. Either of these two books may be a better choice depending on what you are looking for. Finally Rock Off by Bill Janovitz looks at 50 tracks by the Stones as a way of telling their story and is very worthwhile, although it does skip many interesting recordings that aren't part of his narrative. But its a great history of the Stones and covers lots using 50 songs as jumping off points.
