Product Description

Product Description

Japanese only SHM-SACD pressing. Universal. 2011.

Exilés fiscaux, pourchassés par toutes les brigades des stups du monde occidental, les Stones finissent par s'installer à la Jamaïque pour mettre en boîte Goat's Head Soup. Les cinq années précédentes, ils n'ont enregistré que des chefs d'oeuvre et sont un peu attendus au tournant. Keith Richards est trop occupé à tester toutes les spécialités illégales de l'île pour être efficace. Mick Jagger prend donc les affaires en main et décide d'enregistrer plusieurs ballades, dont le futur tube planétaire "Angie". Longtemps considéré comme un album moyen, Goat's Head Soup a bien passé l'épreuve du temps : c'est un grand disque malade et schizophrène, partagé entre riffs poisseux ("Doo Doo Doo Doo", "Dancing With Mr D.") et ballades poudreuses ("Coming Down Again", "Winter"). --Hubert Deshouse

Despite the fact that this album succeeded what are arguably the best albums The Rolling Stones ever recorded, this is still a SOLID album, complete with the solid bluesy s***-kicking songs and some ballads. The remastering was very well done, and the album is as vibrant (if not more so) than it would be coming fresh out of the sleeve.
If it were not for the overplayed and highly overrated "Angie" and the absence of Brian Jones, this album may have been placed in the pantheon of the top five 'Stones albums. Alas, this album is lucky to break into the top ten.
Compared to most of the rest of the Stones' output after this point however, Goat's Head is a veritable triumph. Many critics gave Tattoo You a better rating than this album out of nostalgia, but had this album been released in 1981 in Tatoo's stead, it would have been deservedly rated much higher.
If you are a Rolling Stones fan this album is a necessity. Not as much so as Exile, Beggar's, Let it Bleed and about seven more albums, but it's up there.
This is a Rolling Stones album from the high point of their career - don't penalize it because it's merely excellent.

Goat's Head Soup was originally released Aug 31, 1973 and went to #1 in both the US and the UK. I have found it quite rewarding that over the years this one has gained respect and continues to appear in many rankings of greatest rock albums. Personally, I've always like this one a lot. It's got the usual megahits; Doo Doo Doo Doo Doo (Heartbreaker), Angie, and Star#$!@% (a hit as a single in Europe and Japan), an incredible jam in Can You Hear The Music, great intro in 100 Years Ago, part 2 of the voodoo chronicles in Dancing With Mr. D., solid rocker Silver Train, and oh yeah, Winter and Hide Your Love too. Most people know the music, so in my reviews I try to give you data on the sessions and interesting facts connected with the songs and the album. Here we go:
There were 23 songs recorded during the Goat's Head Soup sessions between Nov 25-30 and Dec 6-21, 1972 at Dynamic Sound Studios in Kingston, Jamaica. Only 8 of them made it onto Goat's Head Soup. Keith had made strong connections with the Jamaican reggae musicians and had recently bought a house in Jamaica, so he was the driving force behind the sessions. The band included Mick Taylor, Nicky Hopkins (piano), Billy Preston (organ), Bobby Keys (sax), Chuck Finley (trumpet), Jim Horn (horn), and of course Ian Stewart on piano. Sonny Rollins played sax on Waiting On A Friend. Final mixes were done at Island Recording in London May 28 - Jun 20, 1973. Hide Your Love was recorded in separate sessions on May 23 & 26 at Olympic Studios in London. Silver Train was recorded during the mixing at Island in London.
Interesting notes include:
.....The UK version of the album had one verse censored and deleted from Star#$!

"Goats Head Soup," like all great Stones albums, never sounds too over-the-top or contrived; it's just good old fashioned rock and roll that has more than stood the test of time. Though it's not their biggest album, nor their most critically acclaimed, "Goats Head Soup" contains songs with all the substance and tunefulness of any played-out Stones radio hit. There's a steady, dark groove to the album's opener, "Dancing With Mr. D" that gets things started with a bite. Though the rest of the album isn't quite like that, it's still great. Mixing ballads with jumped-up rockers, the band finds a pretty good balance to keep everybody happy. "Coming Down Again" displays a tender, if strung out side of the band - a definite ballad to debauchery. The group's biggest asset was their adherence to inserting a multitude of instruments from song to song, like the piano in "Coming Down." The most well-known hits from "Goats Head Soup" include "Heartbreaker" (a 70's sounding groover), and "Angie" (a forlorn ballad too sentimental for its own good).
The album's groove picks back up with the goodtime roadhouse sound of "Silver Train," a classic sounding jam that seems to find its way on every Rolling Stones record. Complete with a great guitar solo, a faraway harmonica, classy background vocals, and typically oblivious lyrics like, "I did not know her name!" "Silver Train is the Rolling Stones at their finest. "Hide Your Love" is a bluesy piano track with more smoking guitars, handclaps, and a drawling Mick Jagger at the helm. A sense of typical soul finds its way on "Can You Hear the Music," but the rollicking "Star Star," the album's closer, is the best on the record. Chock full of Hollywood sleaze, with lyrics that are shocking even by today's standards, this song proves once more that these guys don't care what anybody thinks.

Ah, the mystikal and underated album by the Stones. After riding high in their golden era from the album "Beggars Banquet" (1968), to "Exile On Main Street" (1972), this was the best they could do at the time.
All of these songs are somewhat unknown except for the album's biggest hit "Angie". It is overlooked and doesnt deserve the respect as an album that it should. Really, it's no worse than "Beggars" although I like Beggars better.
But when you come down to it, this is the Stones. The Stones will always be the Stones so even from the spooky opener to the album "Dancing With Mr. D" to the closer "Star Star" this album is a great piece of work. The riff's are good too. If you listen to the Mr.D riff it is almost the same as Jumping Jack Flash backwards.
I guess what I am trying to say is ignore the critics and other Stones fans that put this album down. It is an album to own and if you buy it you will found out why.....
