Biography

The Rolling Stones were formed in London in April 1962 by Brian Jones (guitar, harmonica), Ian Stewart (piano), Mick Jagger (lead vocals, harmonica, guitar), and Keith Richards (guitar, vocals). Bassist Bill Wyman and drummer Charlie Watts completed the early line-up. R&B and blues cover songs dominated the Rolling Stones' early material, but their repertoire has always included rock ...

Following the band's well publicised problems - jail for Jagger and Richards, the growing rift with Jones and the rather odd `Satanic Majesties Request' album, it all seemed over for the Stones. But they found a new musical vision as a hard rock outfit, and recorded an impressive run of albums, of which this is the first.

This is an album chock full of instant classics. From the catchy opener `Sympathy For The Devil', the seemingly autobiographical `Jigsaw Man', the raucous `Streetfighting Man' through to the album closer, the paean to the working man `Salt of The Earth', there is no filler to be found here.

Finally the Stone's back catalogue is being given the treatment it deserves in this series of re-mastered SACD hybrid discs. On a normal CD player the sound is excellent, with a great mix that brings out so much more detail than the old, murky, releases. On a SACD system these will just blow you away. You really feel like you're in the studio with the band. My only complaint is the lack of any kind of liner notes. Some recording details and an essay about the band at the time would have been nice, but hey - it's the music that's really important, and that is superb.

Highly recommended to all.

This is a brilliant album and contains some of the absolute best Stones tracks, not all that well known. Having seen them talk about Brian's brilliant and probably last contribution in No Expectations in the new video Crossfire Hurricane, I got out my vinyl only, to my horror, to find a scratch on it. Aaaaargh. Just bought it on CD along with Let it Bleed, another absolute classic with brilliant tracks not all usually included in compilations. Both recommended. And Crossfire Hurricane when it comes out. Compensating myself for failing to get Stones ticket!!!!

Beggar's Banquet is a great album that I'm only recently beginning to appreciate, despite the fact that I first bought it in 2003. I'm no great fan of The Stones, as yet (always preferred the Kinks when it comes to 60's British rock) but I can certainly understand why their peak albums, such as Let It Bleed, Sticky Fingers and this, are so well respected, with Mick and Keith really creating a melting pot of different rock n' roll elements that are advanced upon wonderfully by the other members of the band.

The overall style of the album is loose rhythm and blues, with nods towards country, folk and bluegrass thrown in for good measure. There's also that legendary opening track, Sympathy For The Devil, a song that has been covered, sampled and trotted out onto the soundtracks of so many films (most notably, Interview With The Vampire) that it must be recognisable even to people who think they've never heard the Rolling Stones in their life. From that exotic and sexually charged opening epic, the album moves into the more obvious country-inflected rhythm and blues numbers (the standouts amongst them including No Expectations, Parachute Woman and the immense Street Fighting Man). Jigsaw Puzzle is a nice piece of epic blues-rock with a great overall performance from the band and Jagger on fine vocal form, whilst the later Prodigal Son (a song credited to Rev. Wilkins) is a disorienting piece of carnival blues-rock in the same vein as Dylan's Rainy Day Women No's 12 & 35 from a few years before.

Stray Cat Blues is a great piece of rock and roll in the traditional sense of the word; with those swaggering vocals leading a top-notch band performance in which every member of the group seemed to be playing at their absolute peak.

The album that saved The Rolling Stones career.1967 had been a disappointing year for The Stones-the album Their Satanic Majesties Request and its accompanying single We Love You met with critical disapproval as half baked Sgt. Peppers rip offs plus Jagger and Richards drugs bust could of brought about the end of The Stones.So in 1968 they decided to go back to basics and record a more blues influenced album and the result is this. Songs like Street Fighting Man,Stray Cat Blues,Salt of the Earth and Dear Doctor are all classic Stones songs but even they pale in comparison to the brilliant opening track Sympathy for the Devil which must surely be one of the greatest openers of all time.And then there was that controversial cover....

I remember getting in trouble for comparing this album with later efforts from the Grateful Dead. Whether you agree or not, this is a must hear! "No Expectations" features some fine slide from Brian and some nice bass lines from Bill. Keith sings his 1st solo on the 1st verse of "Salt of the Earth" (a song which starts out slow and mellow and winds up fast and raucous) and features a cool guitar solo at the end of "Stray Cat Blues". Charlie's drumming is at his finest on "Street Fighting Man". Mick is at his most poetic on "Jigsaw Puzzle".

In a year when the big guns of the British music scene were releasing some of their finest works, The Rolling Stones in 1968 took a step back from the Psychedelia that the band had dipped their toe into with Their Satanic Majesties Request, and instead opted to return to the style of music they found more comfortable, the Blues.

In 1968, Beggars Banquet was released on the Decca record label. It marked a return to the essence of what Keith Richards and Mick Jagger are all about. With Beggars Banquet they returned to the sound that got them into music in the first place, demonstrating a passion and purpose to their writing, which I think to some extent, was missing from their 1967 release. It also marked the end of Brian Jones fully contributing to a Rolling Stones album.

Produced by Brooklyn born Jimmy Miller, producer for great Blues connoisseurs The Spencer Davis Group as well as later landmark Rolling Stones albums, the sound on Beggars Banquet is very primal in nature and could be straight from 1930's Chicago, with many of the songs featuring sliding acoustic elements like No Expectations and the unbelievably underrated Jigsaw Puzzle

There are some Rock and Roll numbers to be had on this record as well. Whilst John Lennon was promoting a more passive revolution in the troubling times of 1968, Mick Jagger was right in the thick of London's antiwar protests. The result of his feelings towards these troubling times was the song Street Fighting Man, arguably one of their finest moments as a band.

The opening track to the album also stands out as one of the bands finest moments.
