"The Rolling Stone Years" is a gorgeous looking coffee-table book you'll be proud to display and browse at your leisure. Rolling Stone magazine's first photographer Baron Wolman features his unique photos of legendary rock artists Grace Slick, Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, and Jim Morrison as well as jazz greats Miles Davis and Sun Ra (to name a few). Many of the photographs are from Wolman's private collection-never seen before. A wonderful addition to your collection, or perfect for gift giving.
Baron Wolman's "The Rolling Stone Years" is unique in rock documentary photography. What makes this book different? Along with the very famous, like Janis Joplin and Jimi Hendrix, Wolman has the courage to include photos of lesser-known artists like Lotti Golden (as another reviewer mentioned). This makes the book a standout, providing an in depth, intimate look at rock's artists during its seminal years. All that's missing is an index; otherwise, I would have given it five stars!
Famed rock photographer Baron Wolman gives us exceptional photojournalism, with "The Rolling Stone Years." There are incredible photographs of Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, Johnny Cash, and Grace Slick--to name a few. But what makes this book special, is that Mr. Wolman opens is private vault, providing rare shots of blues artist Mississippi Fred McDowell, underground artist Lotti Golden, and more, giving us a new perspective on rock's seminal years. Mr. Wolman's personal recollections make this book a must have for music lovers and music historians

Baron Wolman, Rolling Stone's first photographer has opened his vault, giving us a rare, behind-the-scenes look at rock's iconic artists during the 60's and early 70's. The pictures alone (Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin) are worth the price of admission, but we get a bonus: Mr. Wolman provides a memoir of these seminal years, matching each photo with its backstory. "The Rolling Stone Years," is a must for music lovers and rock historians. Your coffee table needs this book!
