Footnotes

  • Buried in the image, to either side of the Stones, are the Beatles' faces. At the time of release, this was seen as confirmation that the album was the Stones' answer to 'Sgt. Pepper'. It was also believed to be a nod to John and Paul's backing vocals on the single 'We Love You'. However, such suggestions were dismissed by Mick Jagger. The cover photo-shoot took place in September 1967 in a studio in Mount Vernon, New York. Michael Cooper, who had shot the 'Sgt. Pepper' cover, provided a selection of props which the Stones arranged and they also brought costume and flowers to complete the design.
