This 1968 album from the Rolling Stones contains some good stuff and some not-so-good stuff.

Jan 12, 2016

Released in 1968, Beggars Banquet would be The Rolling Stones' 9th studio album. It was the first album to mark a definite change in the band's musical direction where Brian Jones' influence had obviously been diminished by the song-writing collaboration between Keith Richards and Mick Jagger.

After listening to The Stones' album from the previous year (1967's "Their Satanic Majesties Request"), I'd say that this rock'n'roll offering was clearly a giant step up the artistic ladder.

Beggars Banquet contains two of my all-time favourite Rolling Stones' tunes, Sympathy For The Devil (*watch video*) and Street-Fighting Man.

I think it's interesting to note that the album jacket you're seeing here was the original concept cover, but, due to its apparent "indecency" it was not used.

If you look closely at the graffiti scribbled on the wall above the toilet tank, you'll notice scrawled there the words "Bob Dylan's Dream" with an arrow pointing down to the toilet's flush-handle.

Now featuring the original proposed cover which was banned by the record company.
