Beggars Banquet is the album that changed everything for the Rolling Stones.

“From the manner it was recorded  at Olympic Studios in Barnes, London, to the track selection, a mixture of rockers (“Street Fighting Man”), blues numbers (“Prodigal Son”, “No Expectations”) and ballads (“Salt Of The Earth”), the band truly came into their own, and the Rolling Stones’ music of today is a reflection of what happened in that studio in 1968, they reached their musical manhood.
The genesis of the epic song “Sympathy For The Devil” is well documented in the Jean Luc Goddard film One Plus One . While 1967’s Their Satanic Majesties was recorded after Mick and Keith’s traumatic and unjust, drugs bust, it was almost too soon to be reflected in their songwriting. Whereas “Sympathy For The Devil”, and much of Beggars Banquet hint at a defiance at what they’d been through, and a strength from the experience. The album also marks a change in musical direction for the band, with the debut of Jimmy Miller as producer, who went on to collaborate with the band on Let It Bleed, Sticky Fingers, Exile On Main St and Goats Head Soup. Miller had also produced Traffic and Spooky Tooth, and co-wrote “I’m A Man” with Steve Winwood. Other musicians who appeared on the album  are Nicky Hopkins on piano, Dave Mason on guitar and mandolin and a gospel choir from Los Angeles.

The only non Jagger/ Richards song on the album, “Prodigal Son” is a cover of Robert Wilkins’ “That Ain’t No Way To Get Along”, which he first recorded in 1929. A year earlier Wilkins recorded the first known song to be entitled, “Rolling Stone”.”

“Surely, there was still a lot of psychedelic music around in 1968. Some groups had gone a little heavy, some mixed pysch and heavy. Other artists, however, pulled out the plug and went to basics: The Byrds or Bob Dylan for instance. Some remained true to the softer sounds they had always produced, like Twice As Much or Chad & Jeremy in the UK. New kids on the block started their career with a soft, stripped sound, think Joni Mitchell. All preferred a traditional, folk background (usually ‘white’) to the electrified R&B / rock’n’roll  idiom (usually ‘black’), which had revolutionised pop music.
The most striking example of this ‘back to basics’ move in the middle of the turmoil that typifies 1968, must be Bob Dylan – the unpredictable singer-songwriter who just years before had swapped his acoustic guitar for a wired sound. The album: John Wesley Harding”. (©Eddy Bonte)

“Bob Dylan’s eighth album, John Wesley Harding, still comes as a bit of a surprise nearly 40 years after its release. Its oddity begins with its cover: a black and white photograph in which Bob barely stands out, placed on a beige background. If you look a little closer, you see that Dylan is actually smiling; shocking, as the last few Dylan albums had featured a prominent sneer. And then you listen to the music, and things become stranger still. After Blonde and Blonde, his most varied (some would say chaotic) album, comes this simple, subdued country-folk record. The electric organ is gone; the acoustic guitar and harmonica is once again at the forefront. And even Dylan’s voice has changed, smoothed out a bit, and become fuller. It all seems to have come from nowhere. The Basement Tapes, which were recorded a few months before John Wesley Harding, provide something of a missing link… but they weren’t released until eight years later. If it’s nowhere near as eclectic as Blonde on Blonde or The Basement Tapes, it is one of the most consistent of Dylan’s albums”. Quoted from / All Rights Reserved:
