Beggars Banquet (Remastered)

All Music Guide - Richie Unterberger
The Stones forsook psychedelic experimentation to return to their blues roots on this celebrated album, which was immediately acclaimed as one of their landmark achievements. A strong acoustic Delta blues flavor colors much of the material, particularly "Salt of the Earth" and "No Expectations," which features some beautiful slide guitar work. Basic rock & roll was not forgotten, however: "Street Fighting Man," a reflection of the political turbulence of 1968, was one of their most innovative singles, and "Sympathy for the Devil," with its fire-dancing guitar licks, leering Jagger vocals, African rhythms, and explicitly satanic lyrics, was an image-defining epic....

On "Stray Cat Blues," Jagger and crew began to explore the kind of decadent sexual sleaze that they would take to the point of self-parody by the mid-'70s. At the time, though, the approach was still fresh, and the lyrical bite of most of the material ensured Beggars Banquet's place as one of the top blues-based rock records of all time.

    This is when The Rolling Stones truly moved into being the Worlds Greatest Rock N Roll Band

    Even it you have the 3 CD "singles" set (which includes Sympathy for the Devil) you ought to get this album as well. Every song here is great and ought to be part of your collection. This is beyond classic Rock.

    Good Album

    Here you see the stones at the top of their career. They brought more blues to the table "prodigal Son","Parachute Women", with some folk sides as well "Dear Doctor","Factory Girl" this is certainly a album that grew on me which remains to be one of my favorites.

    The legend begins

    The Rolling Stones rebounded from drug busts and psychedelic overload with a winner in 1968. Beggars Banquet is a hard rock masterpiece. Sympathy for the Devil and Street Fighting Man are justly considered to be among Jagger/Richards best efforts, lyrically and musically. The other songs on the album run the gamut from hard rock (Stray Cat Blues) to acoustic blues (Prodigal Son, No Expectations). Beggars Banquet is the first Rolling Stones album to demonstrate that the Stones were much more than a great singles band. The remastering of Beggars Banquet is a real treat for fans, since every instrument is easily distinguished. It is great to hear the interplay between Keith Richards and Brian Jones on Stray Cat Blues, for instance.

    stones at their best

    Any album containing the lyric "I can see that you're fifteen years old, but I don't want you're ID" you just know has to be good. It's Jagger and Richards playing downhome classic rock and roll. Its before they were getting paid 12 million dollars from Microsoft for a 30 second spot. It's their declaration of sympathy towards the man downstairs, who as far as we know could actually be Keith Richards. This album is a must own for any Rolling Stones fan or should be purchased by anyone who is looking to start a collection of the greatest living? Rock and Roll Band.
