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.
