Offered for sale is a still sealed original U.S. stereo pressing of Their Satanic Majesties Request by the Rolling Stones, including the original 3D lenticular cover.
About this copy: This copy of Their Satanic Majesties Request is an original 1967 U.S. stereo pressing on the London label.
As the album is still sealed, the record is presumably new and unplayed.
Unlike most sealed copies we’ve seen over the years, this one does not have a cutout hole.
The wrap is mostly intact, except for two tears along the mouth of the cover. One is about 2″ long near the lower corner and the other is about 3″ long (8 cm) near the center of the mouth of the cover.
A nice copy of an album that is very hard to find sealed.
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 plastic lenticular overlay that gave the cover photo a 3D effect. Later pressings had only a printed image.
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.
