Recorded at London's legendary Olympic Studios during the heady days of the 'Summer of Love,' in a landscape of fervent creativity - Pet Sounds, Sgt. Pepper, Hendrix, the Velvet Underground, and the Who - Satanic Majesties stands out as a dramatic landmark. The band's first full venture into the world of 'psychedelia,' it may have split critical opinion at the time, but is long overdue for reassessment - an innovative and experimental piece, as much influenced by Coltrane, John Barry's spy thriller scores, and classical composers as the blues and R&B of previous releases.
