'Beggars Banquet' (1968)


Beggars Banquet
prev/next

 

In a time of psychedelic excess, the Stones strip down with their most hardass songs.

Key Track: "Sympathy for the Devil," which sums up the collapse of Western civilization with demented "hoo hoo" chants and congas.

Best Mick Moment: "Stray Cat Blues," where he mixes up lust, cruelty and compassion. But mostly lust.

Brian's Swan Song: This was Brian Jones' last full album with the band. His slide guitar on "No Expectations" may be his saddest moment.
