Great info - but a chore to read Oct 2, 2005
This is a good book - but it's more for students than general readers. Every song is covered, but the information provided is not all that well written. The stories that people want to read are skipped over, and he concentrates on all the boring stuff. One of the most famous Stones stories, for example, is when John Lennon gave them 'I Wanna Be Your Man' for their second single, but the meeting between them doesn't even get half a page. I had to read a Beatles book to find out the full story. But, having said that, if you're just looking for the facts and figures - a discography of everything they've ever released - then this book will serve you well.
No "Revolution In the Head," but decent Jan 7, 2005
No, Elliott is not Ian McDonald, but every song is here, with some sort of description attempted for each ("I Need You" a 'country song?' Arggh!). Good guide for bootleggers and other people who live with their mothers.
Good Book, However....... Apr 23, 2004
Martin Elliott has written a good book here, but the buyer should be aware that there are some inaccuracies in his tome. I would purchase this book again in spite of the few errors made by the author.
