The '69 books are all good. Don't forget the Ronnie Schneider book.
The first one I read on Altamont was one of my very first Stones books period, a yellow one in German called "Let it Bleed". At that point I only knew many of the Stones songs by title only. I had never even heard "Love in Vain", "Stray Cat Blues", "Little Queenie", all of those, yet. I remember how I literally shivered in anticipation; those were the greatest words I had ever seen.
I assumed I had read the Selvin book. Because I automatically got it. But by then I had read so many stones books that I obviously just filed it away. This thread made me re-visit it. He really did deep research. EXCELLENT book.
