Win signed Allen Klein book plus classic Stones on vinyl & movie

Allen Klein book coverHe’s one of the most controversial (and misunderstood) figures in the history of rock music. We’re talking about Allen Klein, who managed the business affairs of The Beatles and The Rolling Stones.

And Best Classic Bands is giving away a copy of the new book, Allen Klein: The Man Who Bailed Out The Beatles, Made The Stones, And Transformed Rock & Roll (from Houghton Mifflin Harcourt), signed by its author Fred Goodman.

And as TV infomercials like to proclaim: But That’s Not All! Our Contest winner will also receive 180 gram vinyl copies of two classic Rolling Stones albums: Beggars Banquet and Let It Bleed (from ABKCO Records). But Wait, There’s More! You’ll also get a DVD of the 1968 film Sympathy For The Devil by acclaimed director Jean-Luc Godard.

In his review of the Klein book, BCB Editor Rob Patterson writes: “[Klein] was an ambitious, aggressive and tough-minded businessman… [who] played hardball with a metal bat.”  That enabled him to rescue both the Stones and Beatles from bad, low-paying deals and replenish their cash-strapped coffers. But his triumphs came with a price for his reputation. “The book offers a full-blooded portrait of a fascinating and, in music business terms, quite significant personality.”

1968’s Beggars Banquet includes the Stones hits “Sympathy For The Devil” and “Street Fighting Man” among its 10 tracks. The band’s 1969 follow-up Let It Bleed features the title track plus “Gimme Shelter,” “Midnight Rambler” and “You Can’t Always Get What You Want.”

The Godard film weaves footage of the Stones recording sessions for the legendary song with events that were shaping the world at that tumultuous time.
