Another prized jewel in the Rolling Stones' unmatched catalogue is to be restored to its full glory and more, with a multi-format release of their 1973 classic Goats Head Soup.
Their 11th UK studio album, recorded in Jamaica, Los Angeles and London as their last collaboration with producer Jimmy Miller, Goats Head Soup came in the wake of the Stones' landmark 1972 double album Exile On Main St. The new set was introduced by the single that became one of their most exalted ballads, the endlessly elegant Angie, completed by Mick Jagger and Keith Richards during a songwriting sojourn in Switzerland.
The vinyl edition of Goats Head Soup features ten bonus tracks, which include alternate versions, outtakes and no fewer than three previously unheard tracks. The unheard cuts include Criss Cross, plus Scarlet, featuring guitar by Jimmy Page, and a third newly unveiled song, All The Rage. The layered guitar textures of Scarlet make for a track that's as infectious and raunchy as anything the band cut in this hallowed era. As well as Jimmy Page guesting alongside Mick and Keith on the track it also features on bass Rick Grech of Blind Faith fame. All The Rage has a wild, post - Brown Sugar strut and the percussive Criss Cross rocks and swaggers as only the Stones can. The bonus disc of unreleased material also sheds new light on tracks such as 100 Years Ago and Hide Your Love, with further unissued mixes by Stones insider and acclaimed producer Glyn Johns.
