The Rolling Stones first appeared on the cover of RS for the August 10, 1968 issue, around the time of the release of Beggars Banquet. The album was a return to form after the more experimental Their Satanic Majesties Request. As RS Editor and Publisher Jann S. Wenner wrote in the cover story, "[Beggars Banquet] is the best record they have yet done. In all aspects it is a great album; great Rolling Stones material and performance; a great rock & roll album, without pretense, an achievement of significance in both lyrics and music."
