Psychedelic Lunch

Welcome to our “Psychedelic Lunch” series where we find out how deep the rabbit hole really goes and explore music from the 60’s to today. Weekdays At Noon EST. Enjoy the trip!

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.

One thought on “Psychedelic Lunch

  1. That was the album that got me into the Stones. My dad had the LP when I was 11 and, like the Beatles music dad also played, it was a wonderland of music! I later had the red unboxed Decca logo gatefold with the 3D cover. I saw the band in Sheffield during their Voodoo Lounge tour, it was incredible!!! Definitely a favourite band, especially their early blues influence. Sad Brian Jones was on the road to self destruction. I paid my respects at his grave in Cheltenham, it was surreal yet really sad.
