About Goats Head Soup

Goats Head Soup, released in August 1973, is the 11th British and 13th American studio album by The Rolling Stones. Like its predecessor, Exile on Main St., the band composed and recorded much of it outside of the United Kingdom due to their status as tax exiles. Goats Head Soup was recorded in Jamaica, the United States and the United Kingdom and mixed in the United Kingdom and the Netherlands. The album contained 10 tracks, all written by Mick Jagger and Keith Richards, including the lead single "Angie" which went to No. 1 as a single in the United States and top 5 in the UK. The album was the last to be produced by Jimmy Miller who was a key architect of the Rolling Stones sound during their most acclaimed period which began with 1968's Beggar's Banquet. Bass guitarist Bill Wyman only appears on four of the ten tracks of the album but the rest of the Rolling Stones, Mick Jagger (lead vocals, other instruments), Keith Richards (various guitars and backing vocals), Mick Taylor (various guitars and backing vocals) and Charlie Watts (drums), play on every track. In addition to the main band, the standard cadre of Rolling Stones collaborators also play extensively on the album including saxophonist Bobby Keys, organist Billy Preston, pianists Nicky Hopkins and Ian Stewart as well as several local Jamaican musicians.
