A new exhibition is aiming to give fresh perspectives on classic songs.

Featuring behind-the-scenes snaps of The Beatles, Bob Dylan, Pink Floyd, The Doors, Black Sabbath, Tame Impala and Coldplay, Studio To Stereo opens on 20th November at Proud Camden Stables in London and runs until 3rd December.

Created by Proud Galleries and Sony and curated by BBC 6Music's Tom Ravenscroft, the exhibition showcases previously unseen portraits. It also offers Sony Hi-Res Audio playback of the songs the bands were recording when the photographs were taken. 

See a few of the pictures below. Who knew Jim Morrison looked so much like Anchorman during the recording of L.A. Woman? He's only a gulp away from the immortal line, "Milk was a bad choice."
