Innovative and intriguing, Legendary Sessions is sure to change the way music fans listen to the great recordings of our time. After the release of the Rolling Stones’s psychedelic album Their Satanic Majesties Request in 1967, many feared that the bad boys of rock had sacrificed their raw, bluesy edge to love, peace, and flower power. No need to worry. Salvation was at hand with Beggars Banquet, featuring Sympathy for the Devil and Street Fighting Man. The album was a storming return to Satanism, social revolution, and celebrations of the working man. Author Alan Clayson explores the social and cultural developments of the time, the ways that the changing dynamics of the band affected the music, and how the songs took shape. From the latest swinging happenings down on Carnaby Street, to who Mick was sleeping with, to what Keith was taking, Legendary Sessions: The Rolling Stones: Beggars Banquet is an entertaining trip through rock history. 256 pages.
