Gatefold of the Rolling Stones' 1967 album Their Satanic Majesties Request.
Cover for The Rolling Stones' 1967 album Their Satanic Majesties Request. In 1967, inspired by the eclectic psychedelia of The Beatles’ Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, The Rolling Stones got to work on a similarly trippy musical journey. The result was Their Satanic Majesties Request, an album that initially drew mixed reviews but has become a well-respected part of the Stones’ work in the decades since.
If the cover for that album bears a striking resemblance to the Sgt. Pepper cover, it’s no mistake: The Stones were so impressed with the photos for The Beatles’ album that they asked Sgt. Pepper photographer Michael Cooper to create a similar effect for their release.
It was natural that The Stones would tap Cooper for the cover of their foray into psychedelia. Cooper’s vision was a fantastical 3-dimensional image – one that was only possible with a camera located at Mount Vernon Studios in New York City. The Stones were able to book studio time on September 13 and 14, 1967, but with the caveat that they had to take care of everything from the props to the clothing.
