The Rolling Stones - Goats Head Soup

Our Shootout Winner from 2016

A distinguished member of the Better Records Rock Hall of Fame.

The impossible has happened - we found a good sounding copy of Goats Head Soup, only 53 years after it was first released.

Why did it take us so long to find a killer copy? Let's just say the pressing is somewhat "off the beaten path" and leave it at that. We ran into it by accident during an attempted shootout not long ago, and it was so much better than the other records we were playing at the time that we had to postpone the shootout until we could find more of these specific pressings. It took some months but we managed to get a big pile of "happy accidents" together and the result was a gamechanging White Hot copy.

And Why You Shouldn’t Care

Product Detail

The best pressings give you exactly what you want from this brand of straight ahead rock and roll: presence in the vocals; solid, note-like bass; big punchy drums, and the kind of live-in-the-studio energetic, clean and clear sound we love here at Better Records. With big speakers and the power to drive them, at loud levels YOU ARE THERE.

And why not? The engineer is Andy Johns, Glyn's very talented younger brother (sadly, now deceased). They worked together on the Stones' previous album, Exile on Main St.

Andy engineered the Zep albums from II through Physical Graffiti, and those are amazingly well recorded albums in anybody's book when you have pressings that allow you to hear them right.

And you can add to that group Tull's Stand Up (69), Traffic's John Barleycorn (70) and the Stones' Their Satanic Majesties Request (67), Sticky Fingers (71) and It's Only Rock 'N Roll (74). Even two tracks from Stephen Stills' first album (71).

Watch Out For

Aggressive vocals. On top of that most copies, if they have any presence and top end to speak off, will have at least a trace of grit and grain, and usually more than a trace.
