Art is tricky. As a rule, it is most often best if created by the actual artist. Although in cases such as this, the first book of
Jim Marshall’s photographs since his passing, the task of assembling,
editing, organizing, and captioning
the content from 50 some-odd rolls
of film—exposed while Jim was
on tour with the Rolling Stones
during 1972—fell into the competent
hands of Chronicle Books
editor Michelle Dunn Marsh, who
deftly guides us through a revisitation
of those six days when Marshall
was given unlimited access
to the band while on assignment
for Life magazine.
One must remember to be
wary regarding posthumous
releases. The nuances separating
the original artist’s eye from those
of the archivist are often impossible
to determine, but having pored
over these same files alongside Jim myself, I get the feeling that the
images in the pages of The Rolling Stones 1972 are the exact frames
Marshall himself would have chosen.
In the year these great images were made, Jim Marshall was an
artist at the top of his game, with intimate access to a superstar band
at the top of its game—a powerful combination which made possible
this amazing collection of images, many of which have never been
seen before. A must have for any Stones afficionado.
