Garden City: Doubleday & Company, Inc., 1983. 1st Edition. Folio, publisher's black cloth over charcoal paper-covered boards, spine stamped in red, photo-illustrated endpapers, original photo-illustrated dust jacket.
Rock bio of the greatest rock and roll band in the world, with over 200 color and black-and-white studio, concert, and behind-the-scenes photos by the likes of Annie Leibovitz, Michael Cooper, Gerard Mankowitz (who shot the album covers for Out of Our Heads and Between the Buttons, among others), and Peter Beard. Ranges from the band's earliest days to the 1981 tour supporting Tattoo You, arguably their last worthwhile record (even if comprised of tracks largely rescued from the debris of previous sessions). Text by New York Times music critic and regular contributor to Rolling Stone magazine Robert Palmer, and designed by Rolling Stone art director Mary Shanahan. With a selected discography and bibliography, and photo credits. Light rubbing to spine-ends, corners banged; unclipped dust jacket with some edgewear. Very good. Item #1897
