ABKCO Records have announced the release of a limited edition vinyl version of The Rolling Stones’ Beggars Banquet, in celebration of its 50th anniversary
Beggars Banquet has long been a landmark album in The Rolling Stones’ history, signalling the beginning of what is considered their most prolific album era as well as indicating the end of the original line up’s work together.
To honour 50 years of this iconic album, ABKCO Records is releasing a limited edition anniversary version, which will be available from 16 November.
The limited edition vinyl package will come in a gatefold jacket, with a bonus 12” of their hit single Sympathy For the Devil in Mono cut at 45rpm, backed with an etching of the original toilet cover. Also included is a replica of the rare Japanese bonus flexi disc containing a phone interview with Mick Jagger from 1968, and a download code for the album plus interview. The landmark album has been newly mastered by Grammy Award winning engineer Bob Ludwig, lacquers cut at Abbey Road and pressed on 180g vinyl.
The tracklist for the vinyl edition is as follows:
Sympathy For the Devil
Street Fighting Man
Stray Cat Blues
Salt of the Earth
Sympathy For the Devil (mono)
‘Hello, This Is Mick Jagger!’ London to Tokyo 17 April 1968
