Another prized jewel in the Rolling Stones' unmatched catalogue is to be restored to its full glory and more, with the September 4 multi-format release of their 1973 classic Goats Head Soup. The album will be available in multiple configurations, including four-disc CD and vinyl box set editions, with a treasure trove of unreleased studio and live material. 

The box set and deluxe CD and vinyl editions of Goats Head Soup will all feature ten bonus tracks, which include alternate versions, outtakes and no fewer than three previously unheard tracks, including “Criss Cross”.

Stones devotees worldwide will be thrilled by the inclusion, on the box set and deluxe editions, of the previously unheard Scarlet, featuring guitar by Jimmy Page, and a third newly unveiled song, All The RageAll The Rage has a wild, post - Brown Sugar strut and the percussive Criss Cross rocks and swaggers as only the Stones can. The bonus disc of unreleased material also sheds new light on tracks such as 100 Years Ago and Hide Your Love, with further unissued mixes by Stones insider and acclaimed producer Glyn Johns

The box set editions of Goats Head Soup will also include Brussels Affair, the 15-track live album recorded in a memorable show in Belgium, on the autumn 1973 tour that followed the album's late August release. This much-sought-after disc, mixed by Bob Clearmountain, was previously available only in the Rolling Stones' “official bootleg” series of live recordings in 2012.

The Brussels show features the already-classic Tumbling Dice, Midnight Rambler, Jumping Jack Flash and many others, and includes a sequence of tracks from the then-new album. Star Star is followed by Dancing With Mr. D, Doo Doo Doo Doo Doo (Heartbreaker) and Angie.

Additionally, the CD and vinyl box sets offer the original ten-track album in 5.1 Surround Sound, Dolby Atmos and Hi-Res mixes, along with the videos for Dancing With Mr. D, Silver Train and Angie. An exclusive 100-page book will feature a remarkable array of photographs, essays by writers Ian McCann, Nick Kent and Daryl Easlea and faithful reproductions of three tour posters from 1973.

As McCann writes: “Goats Head Soup was released with plenty of fanfare. Despite what you may read today, the kids weren’t entirely absorbed by glam rock, metal, prog and Philly soul back in 1973, and they bought the album in their thousands, sending it to No. 1 in the USA and in the UK, their fifth consecutive British chart-topper.”

Their 11th UK studio album, recorded in Jamaica, Los Angeles and London as their last collaboration with producer Jimmy Miller, Goats Head Soup came in the wake of the Stones' landmark 1972 double album Exile On Main St. The new set was introduced by the single that became one of their most exalted ballads, the endlessly elegant Angie, completed by Mick Jagger and Keith Richards during a songwriting sojourn in Switzerland.

Goats Head Soup, with its famous David Bailey sleeve, featured the Stones' vintage 1969-1974 line-up of Jagger, Richards, Mick Taylor, Bill Wyman and Charlie Watts, with the addition of some essential collaborators. On an album on which their trademark rocking sound was often augmented by more low-key, reflective material, there were no fewer than four featured piano players: Hopkins, Billy Preston, Ian 'Stu' Stewart and Jagger himself.
