The long wait is over!!! Out today (September 4th) is the Rolling Stones' 1973 chart-topper, Goats Head Soup, which has been reissued in multiple configurations — including four-disc CD and vinyl box set editions, featuring unreleased studio and live material. Among the highlights on the set are 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 — 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 was first made available back in 2012 as a digital-only 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.”
