The Rolling Stones: Their Satanic Majesties Request
When The Rolling Stones released Their Satanic Majesties Request in 1967, it immediately drew comparisons to The Beatles’ Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, which was released earlier in the same year. Both records feature psychedelic music and very colorful album art, but Their Satanic Majesties Request actually features images of all four of the Beatles hidden in the foreground. It is believed that this was a response to The Beatles’ album, which featured a Shirley Temple doll wearing a sweater that reads, “Welcome The Rolling Stones Good Guys.”
Fun fact: Photographer Michael Cooper shot both covers for The Beatles and The Rolling Stones.
