50th Anniversary of Rolling Stones’ ‘Their Satanic Majesties Request’ Coming 9/22

50th Anniversary of Rolling Stones’ ‘Their Satanic Majesties Request’ Coming 9/22

 

The Rolling Stones‘ 1967 album Their Satanic Majesties Request celebrates its 50th anniversary this year, so you know what that means: a fancy reissue package is on its way.

Set for release on September 22, ABKCO Music has put together an elaborate reissue for the record, largely considered one of the band’s most experimental efforts.

Visually, the reissue was touched-up for maximum effect:

Michael Cooper, who had created the immaculate art for the Beatles’ Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band earlier in 1967, was hired by the Stones to make something equally striking for the cover of Their Satanic Majesties Request. All four Beatles’ likenesses can be seen popping out of flowers, surrounding a photograph of Charlie, Keith, Mick, Brian and Bill in technicolor garb. Cooper used a rare 3-D camera, employing lenticular technology – when the cover is tilted, the image changes, and every member except for wizard-hatted Mick appear to be moving their heads. Reproduction of the lenticular cover proved costly, and it was eliminated from many subsequent pressings of the album, being replaced by a still image. Their Satanic Majesties Request – 50th Anniversary Special Edition restores the original lenticular art, and the discs are housed in a bespoke fold out album limited edition numbered package with a 20 page book including more of Michael Cooper’s photos from the original session, expanding on what the record-buying public saw in 1967.

The reissue will be made available on double vinyl and limited edition double vinyl/double hybrid Super Audio CD, as well as digitally.
