The Beatles did it for Sgt Pepper, so why not the Rolling Stones for their own “psychedelic masterpiece”? To commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Rolling Stones album Their Satanic Majesties Request, ABKCO Music are releasing a special hi-fi audio version - a limited edition deluxe double vinyl/double hybrid Super Audio CD (compatible with all CD players). It’s out on September 22.

The set contains both the stereo and mono versions of the album, all newly remastered by Bob Ludwig. The vinyl is heavyweight 180gm. Their Satanic Majesties Request 50th Anniversary will include Michael Cooper’s original 3-D lenticular cover photograph, featuring the band in peak psychedelic regalia.

Rolling Stones

It was a tumultuous period for the Rolling Stones – Mick Jagger, Keith Richards and Brian Jones were arrested for drug possession, with Jones spending three weeks in a nursing home. The Stones’ original manager/producer Andrew Loog Oldham quit halfway through recording sessions, leaving the band to finish the album on their own.

Grammy award winning music historian Rob Bowman writes in the liner notes for the revamped set, “Their Satanic Majesties Request should be recognized as an important stepping stone in the Rolling Stones’ development from an r&b-inspired band to the inventors of modern rock for the 1970s.” Guests on the album include The Small Faces’ Steve Marriott and Ronnie Lane.
