The-Rolling Stones Beggars BanquetThe limited edition vinyl format has a gate-fold jacket with a bonus 12” of the album’s celebrated opening track, ‘Sympathy For the Devil,’ in mono. That disc is cut at 45 rpm and backed with an etching of the original “toilet” cover. Also in the package is a replica of the rare Japanese bonus flexi disc, which contains a telephone interview with Mick Jagger from 1968, and a download code for the album plus interview. Newly mastered by Grammy-winning engineer Bob Ludwig, the disc’s lacquers were cut at Abbey Road and it’s pressed on 180 grain vinyl.

Beggars Banquet Stones Press Photo The telephone interview that Mick Jagger did with a staffer from the Stones’ Japanese label King Records had a title that translated to “’Hello, This Is Mick Jagger!’ LONDON to TOKYO April 17, 1968.” It is restored with its original sleeve art in the limited edition vinyl package, marking the first time this rarity has been available outside Japan. During the conversation, which took place while the band were recording the new album, Jagger is asked “What do you think is the future direction of your music?” He replies: “Sideways.”

Beggars Banquet, originally released on 6 December 1968, was the group’s last album to be released during Brian Jones’ lifetime and their first with producer Jimmy Miller. As well as ‘Sympathy For The Devil,’ it featured such key tracks as the single ‘Street Fighting Man,’ ‘No Expectations’ and ‘Factory Girl.’

From Our Old Site

Old record store web site

This is a tribute post to our old and long gone webs.com website

Also we say goodbye and good riddance to Dave of Alan’s Attic Treasures. Although we appreciated being able to share the location with you seems our online reputation suffered when you where there and we weren’t.
So welcome to our new site! Come in and browse our New expanded record store at the same location. Look for us on social media (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, You Tube) as we hope to make our online presence a joyful and informative experience.

Nice little booth ya got going over there. Reminds of when I used to go to Englishtown and down Philly to the Record Cellar. Got a small collection myself. Especially those picture sleeved 45’s.
