The Rolling Stones Tour Of The Americas '75

So, this past Christmas, I decided that my favourite gift would be the gift I bought for myself: the Genesis Publications book by Christopher Simon Sykes (£395 - which is US $650 - plus shipping/handling) entitled The Rolling Stones Tour Of The Americas '75. 600 photographs, many never before seen, were compiled for this 2005 masterpiece, one of only 2150 ever published.  This was my second Genesis Publications buy (the other being Michael Cooper's Stones/Beatles/rock n' roll book called Blinds & Shutters), and I was again pleased.  I knew that at least two photos of Anita Pallenberg (a rare siting after 1973) were in the book, as my good friend Jayme, who runs and created the greatest ever Anita Pallenberg photo website (http://anitapallenberg.multiply.com) only has two 1975 Anita pics from the book on said site, and she pretty much has every Anita photo available. I was hoping, however, that there may have been another Anita pic - hidden somewhere, perhaps, and never considered big enough to scan - but alas, I was semi-crestfallen and indeed only two pictures of her exist in this book, and the third my own find from Rock Scene magazine. I have only scanned a fraction of the photographs from TOTA '75, so expect other installments. The Stones' 1975 tour of America (and despite the book and tour's title, there really WAS only one America toured - their plans to perform in South America never materialized) was epic indeed, and Sykes not only capitured it all, but saved invaluable diary entries, notes, and other memorabilia. Enjoy!

All photos scanned by me.

Amazing, as always. I used a few of these on my site for Keith, but I made sure to credit you. And I'm so jealous you have those books! I've had them both in my wishlist for a while, and all I can do is stare longingly. So thanks so much for sharing these!
