Description

Offered for sale is a limited edition blue vinyl Japanese pressing of Their Satanic Majesties Request by the Rolling Stones, including the original obi.

About this copy: This copy of Their Satanic Majesties Request is a 1981 Japanese pressing on the Decca label.

The cover has no wear and would grade M-, but it does have a neatly repaired 2″ split at the top edge.  It’s a clean repair and isn’t overly obvious.

The insert and obi are M-.

The blue vinyl disc is M- and looks like it may have been played once.

A nice copy of a scarce Stones LP and the first copy of this one that we’ve had in many years.

Background: Released in 1967, Their Satanic Majesties Request was the sixth album (in the UK) by the Rolling Stones and their eighth album in the United States.  This was the first album by the band to be released in both countries with identical material.

The LP reached #3 on the UK charts and #2 in the U.S.  The album was originally released with a lenticular overlay that gave the cover photo a 3D effect.

Allmusic.com gave Their Satanic Majesties Request a 4 star review:

Without a doubt, no Rolling Stones album — and, indeed, very few rock albums from any era — split critical opinion as much as the Rolling Stones’ psychedelic outing. Many dismiss the record as sub-Sgt. Pepper posturing; others confess, if only in private, to a fascination with the album’s inventive arrangements, which incorporated some African rhythms, Mellotrons, and full orchestration. What’s clear is that never before or after did the Stones take so many chances in the studio. … It’s a much better record than most people give it credit for being, though, with a strong current of creeping uneasiness that undercuts the gaudy psychedelic flourishes. In 1968, the Stones would go back to the basics, and never wander down these paths again, making this all the more of a fascinating anomaly in the group’s discography.
