Quite a title and quite an album. The Rolling Stones – Their Satanic Majesties Request 50th Anniversary Special Edition is coming soon.
Originally released back in 1967 and the band’s first major step into the world of psychedelia, it also contains some wonderfully ambitious tunes, including the likes of She’s a Rainbow, Citadel and 2000 Light Years From Home.
Quite a sleeve too, which was a ‘lenticular’ sleeve with a 3D-style Michael Cooper image of the band and the album’s title.
This new take of the album is a ‘high-end audiophile’ 50th anniversary edition with restored original lenticular cover and bespoke fold out packaging. It features both 180-gram LP and hybrid SACD versions of the mono and stereo albums, both recordings newly remastered, as well as a 20-page book with essay and photos from Michael Cooper’s original cover photo session
Not that it is also a limited edition pressing with hand-numbered sleeves. Track listing below and if you want to pre-order ahead of the September shelf date, you can do that now for £61.99.
