MOJO Collectors Series The Rolling Stones Essentials

MOJO’s definitive guide to the Stones’ albums, songs, films and books.


Back in 1969, when The Rolling Stones were first introduced on-stage as “the greatest rock’n’roll band in the world”, they were still in the early stages of a career that now spans over 60 years. At that point, the group had already recorded several classic albums – Aftermath, Beggars Banquet, Let It Bleed – with such extraordinary milestones as Sticky Fingers, Exile On Main St., Some Girls and Steel Wheels yet to come. But, with a tally of nearly 30 studio albums and a bevy of compilations, live recordings and solo records, how best to navigate the Stones’ vast legacy?

Written by MOJO’s team of experts, Rolling Stones Essentials provides everything you need to know to piece together your ultimate collection. As well as an in-depth album-by-album guide – with details of US variations and expanded anniversary editions – we also profile the 50 finest Jagger-Richards songs and put Mick, Keith, Brian, Bill, Ronnie and Charlie’s own projects under the microscope. Plus, we revisit the group’s many pivotal concert performances down the years and recommend the best Stones compilations, rarities collections, films and books.

With dozens of rare and iconic photographs, MOJO’s Rolling Stones Essentials is an indispensable purchase for fans of the world’s greatest rock’n’roll band and all music connoisseurs.
