  1. You found a reel to reel! Lucky you. Have to checked to see what it’s worth?

    I still have a copy of the vinyl with the 3D cover as well as a 2D version. I love the inside jacket of the album (with the exception of that stupid maze). It must have taken a lot of work for the artist to put together that collage. It’s really one of the best inside jackets, there’s so much to see in it.

    I develop eye strain every time that I try to find all four of the Beatles hidden among the flowers! Ringo is the most difficult to find.

    The criticisms of this album were unfounded in my opinion and influenced by inevitable comparisons the recently released and first of its kind, Sgt. Pepper; no album was going to come out ahead on that comparison.

    Satanic Majesties is more of a parallel to Sgt. Pepper, not an effort to copy or duplicate the Beatles album. LSD use was at it’s height and everybody was into the same thing at that wonderful time.

    I think this great album stands well on its own. The Stones, particularly with this album, were a perfect yang to the Beatles yin but Satanic was the last time that we’d see any outside influences on the Stones work; after Beggars they had their own orbit, gravity and sun.

  2. When I come across another one of these albums I’m going to make a four sided lamp shade and use the 3D cover for the front panel. The copy that I own is in perfect condition so I don’t want to mess it up. I still can’t get over that you have a copy on reel-to-reel! Its so rare that I’ve never even seen one or known somebody that had one. It’s very cool that you kept yours! Peace!

  3. “Mint” is a term for the condition of an item, like for ebay purposes. The 8″ was the size of the glued-on plastic lenticular sheet, as compared to the 7″ glued-on plastic lenticular sheet for the reel to reel.

  7. I gotta admit I love this one a lot, despite the negative reviews it has gotten over the years (though I feel the critical consensus has shifted towards positivity a bit the past two decades). What separates it from Sgt. Pepper to me is things like ‘2000 Light Years From Home’ which sounds more like a trip gone wrong. It kinda presents the dark part of the whole psychedelia thing, with the isolation theme and all.
