Biography

A History in the Whirlwind: The Rolling Stones’ 50th Anniversary

By Anthony DeCurtis

When the nascent Rolling Stones began playing gigs around London in 1962, the notion that a rock & roll band would last five years, let alone fifty, was an absurdity. After all, what could possibly be more ephemeral than rock & roll, the latest teenage fad? Besides, other factors made ... Read more in Amazon's The Rolling Stones Store

5.0 out of 5 stars The Most Underrated Stones Album September 24, 2002
Format:Audio CD
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#$!@% (a hit as a single in Europe and Japan), an incredible jam in Can You Hear The Music, great intro in 100 Years Ago, part 2 of the voodoo chronicles in Dancing With Mr. D., solid rocker Silver Train, and oh yeah, Winter and Hide Your Love too. Most people know the music, so in my reviews I try to give you data on the sessions and interesting facts connected with the songs and the album. Here we go:
There were 23 songs recorded during the Goat's Head Soup sessions between Nov 25-30 and Dec 6-21, 1972 at Dynamic Sound Studios in Kingston, Jamaica. Only 8 of them made it onto Goat's Head Soup. Keith had made strong connections with the Jamaican reggae musicians and had recently bought a house in Jamaica, so he was the driving force behind the sessions. The band included Mick Taylor, Nicky Hopkins (piano), Billy Preston (organ), Bobby Keys (sax), Chuck Finley (trumpet), Jim Horn (horn), and of course Ian Stewart on piano. Sonny Rollins played sax on Waiting On A Friend. Final mixes were done at Island Recording in London May 28 - Jun 20, 1973. Hide Your Love was recorded in separate sessions on May 23 & 26 at Olympic Studios in London. Silver Train was recorded during the mixing at Island in London.
Interesting notes include:
.....The UK version of the album had one verse censored and deleted from Star#$!

2.0 out of 5 stars There's one reason you can't buy this... May 30, 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I guess the big question I have is "why"? (Other than revenue). I used my new Cambridge Audio Azur 640C CD player, and my Grado Reference Series R2 headphones to compare this remaster with the 94 Virgin remaster.

This remaster is brighter and louder. The brightness is a tad annoying though because it's turned up so much that the highs are too "thin" -- the high-hats on Charlie's drums are tinny and have no pop at all. Upping the volume doesn't make the sound richer (my Grados don't lie folks). Mick's voice has a more resonant "separation" than the Virgin remaster -- it sounds less "muddled".

The packaging is a disappointment too. The Virgin "Collector's Edition" gives you the ACTUAL original album packaging (cardboard Goats Head Soup photo, and gatefold with "album" sleeve -- I have yet to see a better CD package for the Stones). This remaster groups all that together in a booklet, which makes you wonder again... why?

I bought all these remasters just to test out the sound, but I'm hoping Mick and the boys will take more control over their legacy before they let the record companies turn their catalog into the chaos that RCA has done to Elvis'.

And folks... whatever they've done to Star Star means the whole thing is corrupted. You cannot buy this as your only copy of GHS, because they've done some kind of censoring to Star Star. Why has this occurred? That alone means you need to skip this. I wonder... did the Stones OK this?

5.0 out of 5 stars An acquired taste January 8, 2003
Format:Audio CD
This album has one of the strangest titles of a major band's releases I've ever heard. Where does the title come from? Perhaps the notion that it's something at first you wouldn't want and wouldn't like, but that after a while, you might decide, it's great. That's how this album is for me. Back in the 70s, I gave this album a few listens and dismissed it as so vastly inferior to the great streak of Stones albums that preceded it (Beggar's Banquet-Let it Bleed-Sticky Fingers-Exile on Main Street) that it wasn't worth my time.
Part of the problem is, the first song misleads listeners as to what the album is about. "Dancing with Mr. D" sounds like a parody of "Sympathy for the Devil" and to this day remains an annoying, clumsy song. But pretty much everything after that is, on repeated listenings, wonderful--soulful--reflective. "Coming Down Again" is exquisite, delicately depicting a waning high. "Winter" evokes loneliness and despair in a beautiful way. "Star Star" struts unabashedly. "Angie" has a vocal track that is surprisingly effective while totally eccentric, and a musical arrangement that's a tour de force. "Heartbreaker," "100 Years Ago" and "Silver Train" rock hard and convincingly. "Goat's Head Soup" is a subtle masterpiece that doesn't yield the kind of immediate pleasures of its classic predecessors, but it sticks with you just as long.
One key to the Stones success during this period, it's quite clear now, was producer Jimmy Miller. His association with the Stones began with the awesome single Jumpin' Jack Flash/Child of the Moon. He produced everything they did through this album. He created the space for Charlie Watts to earn recognition as the greatest drummer in rock.

WHERE TO FIND UNCENSORED VERSION OF "STARF**CKER" ???
The CD remaster has the unexpurgated track. The orig. LP has a voice over thingie that attempts to obscure the word 'pussy'. We could send boys to Vietnam and bring them home in pine boxes, but boy we were keep them damn records free of profanity!
