Jim Marshall Rolling Stones 1972 Series:

For the Rolling Stones’ 50th anniversary in 2012, Jim Marshall Photography LLC published a book of Jim’s photographs from their 1972 tour and released a selection of previously unavailable Rolling Stones photographs for collectors.

In 2022, on the 60th anniversary of the band, and the 50th anniversary of this legendary tour, Jim Marshall Photography LLC has reissued the book with more imagery and new essays by Anton Corbijn and Nikki Sixx. Along with the updates to the book, they have also decided to publish 4 new limited edition prints!

Each of the photographs is available as a limited edition in one size only.

Jim Marshall photographed the Rolling Stones 1972 American Tour (A.K.A. "Stones Touring Party" or "STP") on special assignment for Life Magazine. Marshall joined the Stones that year both before they embarked, while they were in the recording studio putting the finishing touches on their landmark double album Exile on Main Street, and then again during the West Coast leg as they kicked off this blockbuster US Tour.

Release Notes:

All Jim Marshall Photography LLC “Estate Limited Edition Photographs” that are released are carefully selected from his massive archive of over 1 million negatives. There is intentionally no crossover with any previously available photographs that Jim produced during his lifetime. Each estate photograph is released in one size only (with very few exceptions) so they are extraordinarily rare.

These beautiful fine art photographs are printed to order in San Francisco, please allow 2-4 weeks for delivery. Each photograph is hand-numbered and bears the official estate seal on the reverse.

Buyers will receive a certificate of authenticity following delivery. Please contact us with questions!
