The Rolling Stones – Goats Head Soup
The Rolling Stones are an English rock band formed in London in 1962. As a diverging act to the popular pop rock of the early 1960s, the Rolling Stones pioneered the gritty, heavier-driven sound that came to define hard rock. The band has been viewed as the musical “vanguard of a major transfusion” of various cultural attitudes, making them accessible to youth in both America and Britain. The Stones have sold over 240 million albums worldwide and have held over 48 tours of varying length, including three of the highest-grossing tours of all time: Bridges to Babylon Tour, Voodoo Lounge Tour, and A Bigger Bang Tour. In May 2013, Rolling Stone magazine declared them the “most definitional band that rock & roll has produced”. Goats Head Soup is their eleventh British and thirteenth American studio album, released in August 1973. It was composed and recorded in Jamaica, the United States and the United Kingdom and contains 10 tracks, including the lead single “Angie” which went to number one as a single in the US and the top five in the UK.
