Would love to see them perform Coming Down Again.

Strange to think that 'them' now performing it would be only Keith Richards... Of those who once recorded this beautiful piece under the name of The Rolling Stones (and if the hell doesn't freeze and Jagger would join the stage with him).

- Doxa
Did not Mick sing vocals on the album track

Surely he did, like he has done in so many 'Keith numbers' on albums. But that doesn't traslate well into live performances since the golden days of "Happy"...

I point to "Time Is On My Side" from the 81 tour (which admittedly is still a VERY long time ago). That was magic.

I was 12 when it came out. And already a Stones Fan. But young as I was I was disappointed about the cover because I couldn't see my idols clearly. They were all hidden behind this curtain/bubble. With my 12 I thought: They are so rich and don't spend the money for a proper photographer!!smiling smiley

The album sleeve was "grotesque", according to Mr K. Richards.

The only problem with this great album is that it was released after the masterpiece "Exile".
I love all the Goats' outtakes too.

It was definitely a departure from anything they had done up to that point.

One of my absolute favourites. Love the feel, melodies, and dreamy grooves of magic such as Winter, Can You Hear the Music, Coming Down Again, 100 Years Ago.

Happy Birthday GHS!

I’ve said it before in previous, related threads: Goats Head Soup was the Stones’ first, true, album of the 1970’s. Both Sticky Fingers and - though be it, to a lesser extent - Exile on Main Street, are still rooted in the late-60’s. For better or worse, Goats Head Soup was fresh and modern for it’s time. I’m my opinion, it’s weaker than the two LP’s that preceded it, yet it’s their first truly contemporary 70’s release. Angie isn’t the ‘Brian-era’ in any way. Here’s Mick vying for credibility and relevance amongst your Elton’s and Marc Bolan’s or the 1970’s music sphere.

If only they had put "Waiting on a friend "on it instead
of 'Angie. Seeing them play Heartbreaker at the Milwaukee summerfest 2015 is the highlight of all my Stones concerts ..Best thing about Angie was Silver Train was the b side, which we played endlessly in my local pub..,

That's an interesting take. Hadn't thought about that, but there is a fair amount of truth in that.

Astute observations there though to me a 60s haze still lingers over the album as they grapple with coming to terms with the 70s and the shape of the then-current line-up. The Stones really departed the 60s on IORR but even then they include a cover of a song from the decade.

Great insight- but totally wrong.
Sticky and Exile were VERY 1970s, the hope, peace and love, the acid dream was over.
This was the 1970s-music based in reality,ups and downs,friends passing away,loneliness of being away from home,heroin and cocaine and the blues.there was no 60s shit in that music.
Mick “ vying for credibility” is laughable.The Stones existed in the stratosphere in 73. A place only the Beatles had been and Zep were just getting a glimpse of.
Guys like Elton and T. Rex were just starting their careers, they were children compared to the Stones.
It’s funny how wrong you got it- Angie is Absolutely “Brian era” - a beautiful ballad in the realm of As tears go by ,Blue Turns to Grey or Lady Jane.

Ha! Well, we're all entitled to our differing opinions, I suppose. I still stand by my points. Yours are valid, too, of course. thumbs up

Yeah, I'm not sure opinions be "wrong" haha

For me, Sticky Fingers is very polished and concise, Exile is rockin' lofi (almost a throwback to 50's music) and sprawling, while Goats is dim and druggy—a cloudy comedown. The song that perfectly encapsulates this is "Coming Down Again".
