20 Years of Rolling Stone: What a Long, Strange Trip It's Been by Jann S. Wenner (Friendly Press, Inc. 1987) (784.54) is a nice collection of essays, interviews, quotations, and photos that represents what the owners of R.S. believe to be their best from the first twenty years of publishing. My rating: 7/10, finished 1/13/14.
