Among their most intimate and emotionally absorbing work
– Rolling Stone Magazine, 1973
Goats Head Soup was the 11th British and 13th American studio album from the Rolling Stones.
Recorded in Jamaica, the US and UK from November 1972 to May 1973 and released on August 31st 1973.
For Goats Head Soup, Jamaica was one of the few places that would let us all in!
– Keith Richards
In just four short weeks in Jamaica’s Dynamic Sound Studios the Stones had recorded 8 of the 10 songs on the album.
The album wasn’t without its controversies, including disputes over Angie being the first single released, disapproval of lyrical content, changing song titles and going through three different album covers – an actual image of Goats Head Soup, the band depicted as centaurs and finally the iconic veiled images of their faces you see today, shot by David Bailey. Despite all of this the album went straight to No.1 in the UK and US and several other countries!
I really feel close to this album, and I really put all I had into it… I guess it comes across that I’m more into the songs.
– Mick Jagger
