EDITORS’ NOTES

Working with their new producer, Jimmy Miller, The Rolling Stones moved away from their ‘60s pop style and into what’s considered their classic album-oriented era on Beggars Banquet. The samba-influenced epic “Sympathy for the Devil” evokes ancient spirits, while acoustic-based tunes like the heart-wrenching “No Expectations,” the country-fied “Dear Doctor,” and the straight blues of “Prodigal Son” illustrate how British musicians often celebrated American music with more passion and ingenuity than their American counterparts. For extra measure, the rockers—“Street Fighting Man,” “Stray Cat Blues”—go for the jugular.

Beggars Banquet

One of if not the best Rolling Stones album. Love love love Stray Cat Blues, Jigsaw Puzzle, Salt of the Earth and of course Sympathy for the Devil. Great from beginning to end. Download the whole album you won't regret it.

Beggars Banquet

This is one of my personal favorite The Rolling Stones albums. This album has a great flow, track after track. Also, this album has great vocals, great drum solos, and great guitar solos as well. Finally, the instruments wrap around the vocals like no other, and intertwine perfectly. Definitely looking forward to the next limited play album, and extended play album from The Rolling Stones.
