Received it today. Really fast shipping directly from the publisher:) The book is beautiful and contains a LOT of color images. Contains both LPs, CDs and cassettes. Because of that I guess its not totally in depth on each album. No matrix info for instance. Since Im a big fan of Jan´s "Stones on Decca", I can only compare to that and the book seems to categorize the different versions in another way than Jan (Catalogue/Side/Design/Version). But it does continue the timeline beyond the Decca years which is deliberating.
Just had it for a couple of hours, but good first impression.
Edit: Had more than an hour flipping through it today. The book has a "story" part presenting all the albums/singles. Those sections are filled with factual errors. It states that "Sticky Fingers (as an album) was mixed in Muscle Shoals". "Tumbling Dice was recorded in 1970". This is an elaborate book for the dedicated fan, nothing for casual bypaser, so that sort of stuff does not really bode well.
