The Rolling Stones in Olympic Studios 1968

Two lovely photos of Mick Jagger and Keith Richards at Olympic Studios during the making of Jean Luc Godard’s movie ‘Sympathy for the Devil’ in June 1968.

You can buy prints of these pictures from Sonic Editions, here.

The Stones recorded several albums at Olympic studios between 1966 and 1972. Here’s the rhythm section (Watts, Wyman and Ian Stewart on keyboards) hard at it on the same Sympathy movie sessions. You can see Mick Jagger’s back in the picture. He’s wearing the same shirt as in the picture above.
