Set for release on September 4th is the Rolling Stones' 1973 chart-topper, Goats Head Soup, which will be issued in multiple configurations — including four-disc CD and vinyl box set editions, featuring unreleased studio and live material. The box set and deluxe CD and vinyl editions of Goats Head Soup will all feature bonus tracks, which include alternate versions, outtakes and three previously unissued tracks — including the song, “Scarlet,” featuring guitar by Jimmy Page and bass by Family and Blind Faith's, Ric Grech.
Two other songs, have long been available in bootleg circles for decades — the set's new single, “Criss Cross” and “All The Rage,” which for years had been booted as “You Should Have Seen Her Ass.” Alternate and instrumental mixes flesh out the package — along with Brussels Affair, the 15-track live album, which has been available since 2012 as a digital release. The show, from October 17th, 1973, marked guitarist Mick Taylor's second-to-final concert as a member of the Stones.
According to the press release, “The CD and vinyl box sets offer the original ten-track album in 5.1 Surround Sound, Dolby Atmos and Hi-Res mixes, along with the videos for 'Dancing With Mr. D,' 'Silver Train' and 'Angie.' An exclusive 100-page book will feature a remarkable array of photographs, essays by writers Ian McCann, Nick Kent, and Daryl Easlea and faithful reproductions of three tour posters from 1973.”
