PRAISE FOR ROCKS OFF:

“Rocks Off is an intense pleasure—a series of love letters plus a few notes of despair—and almost as good as the music it celebrates.” —Wall Street Journal

“A book that will have you dusting off your LPs (or turning on your iPod) with a new appreciation for the iconic band.” —Parade Magazine

“[Janovitz] is an astute observer of the Stones’ remarkable canon of songs, offering fresh and insightful analyses and exploring numerous “underappreciated album gems.” His vibrant description of “Gimme Shelter” alone is worth the price of the book…a must for Stones fans everywhere.” —Booklist Review

“A book about 50 significant Stones recordings could have practically written itself. But it wouldn’t have written itself nearly as well as Janovitz has; close listening and an ear for detail distinguish his analyses.” —Kirkus Review

GETTING THERE:

The Library and Archives is at 2809 Woodland Avenue in Cleveland, Ohio. The facility is at the corner of Woodland Avenue and East 30th Street, in a shared building with the Tommy LiPuma Center for Creative Arts of Cuyahoga Community College (Tri-C). This is approximately two miles southeast of the Museum.
