After the release of the Rolling Stones's psychedelic album Their Satanic Majesties Request in 1967, many feared that the bad boys of rock had sacrificed their raw, bluesy edge to love, peace, and flower power. No need to worry. Salvation was at hand with Beggars Banquet, featuring "Sympathy for the Devil" and "Street Fighting Man." The album was a storming return to Satanism, social revolution, and celebrations of the working man. Author Alan Clayson explores the social and cultural developments of the time, the ways that the changing dynamics of the band affected the music, and how the songs took shape. From the latest swinging happenings down on Carnaby Street, to who Mick was sleeping with, to what Keith was taking, Legendary Sessions: The Rolling Stones: Beggars Banquet is an entertaining trip through rock history. -- Publisher's description.
General Note:
"Recorded at Olympic Sound Studios, London, the Rolling Stones' seminal album of 1968, Beggars Banquet, was regarded as a return to form for the group-- going back to their rhythm and blues roots with tracks such as "Sympathy for the Devil" and "Street Fighting Man"."--Cover.
