The Rolling Stones have announced a special 50th Anniversary Edition release of their record Beggars Banquet.
Recorded between March and July of 1968 at Olympic Sound Studios in London, mixed at Sunset Sound in Los Angeles, Beggars Banquet was the first Stones album produced by Jimmy Miller and marked the start of what is considered their most prolific album era. Beggars Banquet has a special place in the history of the band, as it is the final album completed with the original lineup of Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Brian Jones, Bill Wyman and Charlie Watts.
Now, a limited edition vinyl package will come in a gatefold jacket, with a bonus 12” of their hit single ‘Sympathy For the Devil’ in Mono cut at 45rpm, backed with an etching of the original ‘toilet’ cover. Also included is a replica of the rare Japanese bonus flexi disc containing a phone interview with Mick Jagger from 1968, and a download code for the album plus interview. The album has been newly mastered and cut at Abbey Road and pressed on 180g vinyl.
The record will be released through Abkco Records on November 16th.
