Jump Up – The Rise of the Rolling Stones was originally a coffee-table illustrated softback that traced the band’s first ten years from 1963 onwards. Now available in digital format for the first time since it was published in 1995, the book, taken from author Nigel Goodall’s original unedited manuscript, assembles an amazing picture of the first decade of the ‘Greatest Rock ‘n’ Roll Band In the World’ – and includes details of previously unheard interviews with the Stones and with all those that knew and worked with them during the period the book covers. Hailed as one of the first biographies to potray a vivid and dramatic telling of the early life and career of the band, the book covers everything from Jagger and Richards meeting on Dartford Railway Station to the early days of playing West London blues clubs, the package tours, the drug busts, the women, the death of Brian Jones, the beginning of the sticky 70s and the major stadium gigs.

In the 1960s an epic battle was waged between the two biggest bands in the world—the clean-cut, mop-topped Beatles and the badboy Rolling Stones. Both groups liked to maintain that they weren’t really “rivals”—that was just a media myth, they politely said—and yet they plainly competed for commercial success and aesthetic credibility. On both sides of the Atlantic, fans often aligned themselves with one group or the other. In Beatles vs. Stones, John McMillian gets to the truth behind the ultimate rock and roll debate. Painting an eye-opening portrait of a generation dragged into an ideological battle between Flower Power and New Left militance, McMillian reveals how the Beatles-Stones rivalry was created by music managers intent on engineering a moneymaking empire. He describes how the Beatles were marketed as cute and amiable, when in fact they came from hardscrabble backgrounds in Liverpool. By contrast, the Stones were cast as an edgy, dangerous group, even though they mostly hailed from the chic London suburbs. For many years, writers and historians have associated the Beatles with the gauzy idealism of the “good” sixties, placing the Stones as representatives of the dangerous and nihilistic “bad” sixties. Beatles vs. Stones explodes that split, ultimately revealing unseen realities about America’s most turbulent decade through its most potent personalities and its most unforgettable music.

Fielding is a master of anticipation and knows how to create a labyrinth of tension, never providing an exit until the very last page' Toronto Globe & Mail Marcy Taggert lost her 21-year-old daughter, Devon, in a canoeing accident the year before. But because Devon's body was never recovered from the waters, Marcy has found it difficult to come to terms with her death and keeps seeing her daughter in the faces of strangers. Now, on a holiday to Ireland - which should have been a celebration of her 25th wedding anniversary until her husband left her for another woman - Marcy is convinced she has just seen Devon walk past the table where she is sitting outside a café in Cork. Desperate to appease her paranoia and lay her daughter's ghost to rest once and for all, Marcy begins a search to find Devon. But the truth, although her only salvation, is even more disturbing than she could ever have imagined...

Meet the Grogans Before there was Marley, there was a gleefully mischievous boy navigating his way through the seismic social upheaval of the 1960s. On the one side were his loving but comically traditional parents, whose expectations were clear. On the other were his neighborhood pals and all the misdeeds that followed. The more young John tried to straddle these two worlds, the more spectacularly, and hilariously, he failed. Told with Grogan's trademark humor and affection, The Longest Trip Home is the story of one son's journey into adulthood to claim his place in the world. It is a story of faith and reconciliation, breaking away and finding the way home again, and learning in the end that a family's love will triumph over its differences.
