About this album

Goats Head Soup is an album by The Rolling Stones released in 1973. It was recorded as the follow-up to 1972’s critically acclaimed Exile on Main Street. Goats Head Soup was a more polished production than the raw and ragged Exile. It reflected the resurgence of soul-pop and the rise of funk, while maintaining the Stones’ distinctive rock sound. It spawned the hit single “Angie”, by far its best-known track, and topped the charts in both the US and the UK.

History

Recording

Recording began as early as 1970. Two tracks, “Silver Train” and “Hide Your Love”, resulted from these early sessions and re-appeared in November 1972 when the band relocated to Kingston, Jamaica’s Dynamic Sound Studios. Guitarist Keith Richards said in 2002, “Jamaica was one of the few places that would let us all in! By that time about the only country that I was allowed to exist in was Switzerland, which was damn boring for me, at least for the first year, because I didn’t like to ski… Nine countries kicked me out, thank you very much, so it was a matter of how to keep this thing together…”

Of the recording process, Marshall Chess, the president of Rolling Stones Records at the time, said in 2002, “We used to book studios for a month, 24 hours a day, so that the band could keep the same set-up and develop their songs in their free-form way, starting with a few lyrics and rhythms, jamming and rehearsing while we fixed the sound.
