REVIEW:

According to the back cover notes: “The Stoners 1967 album Their Satanic Majesties Request is considered by some to be the “best ever” or the “worst ever” output by the band. Recorded between July and October 1967, since the musicians were not sure of what the direction of this album would be, they tried many versions. Additionally, they recorded some titles that unfortunately didn’t make it into the final vinyl. This project gathers together titles that unfortunately were left out of Satanic, although they could add more touch of psychedelia if Mr. Oldham would (have) decided to make it a double album. The best takes of the sessions are presented here in glorious stereo sound.” This is an interesting release that came out some years ago, obviously lifted from the well-known 8 cd Satanic set by Midnight Beat, but some titles are imaginative. Note that at the bottom of each label there is written Come Back BW, We Miss You.

The album was recorded during sessions at the Olympic Studios that started in February and ended in late October 1967: the album featured Jagger on lead and backing vocals and percussions, Richards on lead, acoustic and rhythm guitars and backing vocals, Jones on rhythm guitars, mellotron, organ, piano, horns, mandolin, sitar, flute and percussions, Wyman on bass, percussions, organ and lead vocals on one song and Watts on drums and percussions. Other musicians helped as well: Stu, Nicky Hopkins, Steve Marriott, Ronnie Lane, John Lennon, Paul McCartney and John Paul Jones among them. The sound output is excellent despite these being outtakes. As for the cover it has the merit to show the famous doll that is part of the folklore surrounding the artwork of the original album.

 


The best toys are the ones that are both educational and multi-purposeful.
