Beggars Banquet is an LP released in 1968 by The Rolling Stones. It marked a return to the band's R&B roots, generally viewed as simpler and more primal than the conspicuous psychedelics of Their Satanic Majesties Request.

Beggars Banquet was Brian Jones' last substantial effort with The Rolling Stones. In addition to his slide work on "No Expectations," he played harmonica on "Dear Doctor" and "Prodigal Son." He also played sitar and tambura on "Street Fighting Man" and mellotron using the same brass sound he selected for "We Love You" on "Stray Cat Blues".

In December 1968, the album was released with a simple imitation invitation card cover. 

Critics considered the LP as a return to form. It was also a clear commercial success, reaching #3 in the UK and #5 in the US (on the way to eventual platinum status).

In 2003, the album was ranked number 57 on Rolling Stone magazine's list of the 500 greatest albums of all time. In 2003 the TV network VH1 named Beggars Banquet the 67th greatest album of all time.
