The Rolling Stones’ storied 1973 album Goats Head Soup will be the subject of a lavish multi-format release on September 4. It will be available in multiple configurations, including four-disc CD and vinyl box set editions, and the band’s millions of devotees will be thrilled by its extensive selection of unreleased studio and live material.

Goats Head Soup was the Stones’ 11th UK studio album and was recorded in Jamaica, Los Angeles and London with producer Jimmy Miller. This major new presentation of another landmark in the Stones’ unparalleled history is introduced today (9) with the release of the first previously unreleased track, ‘Criss Cross.’ It’s available now as an instant grat track with pre-orders of the album, and on all streaming and download services. The percussive, swaggering number is accompanied by an official video, which you can see here:

The announcement of the new Goats Head Soup editions comes in the wake of the band’s achievements with their single “Living In A Ghost Town.” After chart success and acclaim around the world, the song, completed during lockdown, climbs to No. 1 on the German singles chart this week.

The Stones and Jimmy Page

The forthcoming box set and deluxe CD and vinyl editions of Goats Head Soup will all feature ten bonus tracks. These include alternate versions, outtakes and three previously unheard tracks. Alongside “Criss Cross,” a huge attraction will be the inclusion of “Scarlet,” featuring guitar by the Stones’ friend and fellow superstar Jimmy Page, as well as Blind Faith member Rick [also known as Ric] Grech on bass.

“Scarlet” is described as being “as infectious and raunchy as anything the band cut in this hallowed era,” while “All The Rage” “has a wild, post-“Brown Sugar” strut.” The bonus disc of unreleased material also presents staples of Goats Head Soup such as “100 Years Ago” and “Hide Your Love” in a new light, with further unissued mixes by revered producer and Stones insider Glyn Johns.

This was captured at a show in Belgium during the autumn 1973 tour that came in the wake of the album’s late August appearance. This set, mixed by Bob Clearmountain, was previously only part of the Stones’ “official bootleg” series of live recordings in 2012.

Highlights of Brussels Affair include memorable live versions of “Tumbling Dice”, “Midnight Rambler”, “Jumping Jack Flash” and songs from the then-new album such as “Star Star,” “Dancing With Mr. D,” “Doo Doo Doo Doo Doo (Heartbreaker)” and the LP’s major hit single, the unforgettable “Angie.”

Multiple mixes

The CD and vinyl editions also contain the original ten-track Goats Head Soup in 5.1 Surround Sound, Dolby Atmos and Hi-Res mixes. The videos for “Dancing With Mr. D.,” “Silver Train” and “Angie” feature alongside an exclusive 100-page book with photographs, essays by writers Ian McCann, Nick Kent and Daryl Easlea and reproductions of three 1973 tour posters.

Goats Head Soup was released with plenty of fanfare,” writes McCann. “Despite what you may read today, the kids weren’t entirely absorbed by glam rock, metal, prog and Philly soul back in 1973, and they bought the album in their thousands, sending it to No. 1 in the USA and in the UK, their fifth consecutive British chart-topper.”
