Beggars Banquet is being reissued as a special vinyl package which incorporates both versions of the cover. The gatefold sleeve features the Michael Vosse photograph of a vandalised toilet (once deemed offensive) but will come with an ‘overwrap’ of the inoffensive ‘wedding invitation’ version. In stark contrast to the forthcoming White Album reissue, no unheard bonus audio forms part of this 50th anniversary package, but the new vinyl does come with a bonus 12-inch vinyl record with a mono version of Sympathy For The Devil cut at 45RPM.
500 Greatest Albums of All Time: The Rolling Stones, ‘Beggars Banquet’. On Beggar’s Banquet the Stones try to come to terms with violence more explicitly than before and in so doing are forced to take up the subject of politics. The result is the most sophisticated and meaningful statement we can expect to hear concerning the two themes - violence and politics - that will probably dominate the rock of 1969. The rest of the album is made up of largely conventional Stones styled songs. There are some mediocre ones among them, but then that’s part of the Stones. Consistency is not their bag.
The Stones forsook psychedelic experimentation to return to their blues roots on this celebrated album, which was immediately acclaimed as one of their landmark achievements. A strong acoustic Delta blues flavor colors much of the material, particularly "Salt of the Earth" and "No Expectations," which features some beautiful slide guitar work.
Beggars Banquet, the seventh studio album by The Stones, marked a return to the band’s R&B roots. Following the long sessions for the previous album Their Satanic Majesties Request in 1967 and the departure of producer and manager Andrew Loog Oldham, Mick Jagger and Keith Richards hired producer Jimmy Miller, the partnership proved to be a success and Miller would work with the band until 1973. Texan-born Miller had been working in the UK, producing artists like Traffic and The Spencer Davis Group, with whom he had co-written the song I’m A Man. Stones engineer Glyn Johns was aware of his.
During the conversation, which took place while the band were recording the new album, Jagger is asked What do you think is the future direction of your music? He replies: Sideways. Beggars Banquet, originally released on 6 December 1968, was the group’s last album to be released during Brian Jones’ lifetime and their first with producer Jimmy Miller.
