By the way, didn't the reissue of 'Goat's Head Soup' come out today?


Yes and Yes - I noticed flagged up one Qobuz

I really like Goats Head

Apparently Mick Taylor was considerable influence on the lad Slash

You've said it.


In many ways it's not a very coherent album, it doesn't flow that well.



It is though a monster, my favourite album of theirs - only Let it Bleed comes close.

Now I love this track.

But the sensitivity gives me indigestion so soon after brown sugar, hear him whip the women just around midnight.

Emotionally I am a bit lost now.

I think the fact that the guy who sings 'Angie' also sings 'Star Star' is part of the Stones' thing.

But on this album, I find it a tough transition.

All I'm saying.

I was playing this track on a Friday night about 25 years ago and the neighbours knocked on the door and said 'we can't hear our telly! And we have a video!'.

I snarled at them and slammed the door and then thought better of it and reduced the volume.

After all, they had a video.

Would have liked Billy Preston's organ higher in the mix before the breakdown started - and the piano (Ian Stewart? Nicky Hopkins?).


Love this breakdown section - wish they had done more of this kind of extension.

I've head people compare this instrumental bit to Santana. Not sure there was an influence there, but I can hear it.

it is all of a piece to me, but i really can't look at this album objectively. the music is just sooooo done wellllll, and even as a female person, nahhh. i didn't have any probs when i heard it in the blues, either

(although i never liked starfucquerstarfucquerstarfucquer star. mwhahahaha)

listennnn to em though. this to me is such a jammmm, full of feel and greatness

By the time I get to this part of the album I am able to forgive the Stones everything in their long career.

Just...bliss.

Billy Preston on organ

A very robust track

I haven't played this album for years and I am enjoying it very much

Bottleneck blues. Love the minimalist drum part on this, too.
