"Hide your love" is a weird song coming from the stones; it doesn't rock and roll.

The beat or the rhythm is awkward. Not dance friendly for sure. Mick Taylor's solo helps the song .May be the stones(jagger) wanted to experiment, try something new.

Rockandroll,

GHS and Tattoo You are the 2 official records that feature Mick's face on the cover; just him. I wonder why? What marketing stategy was behind it. Was Keith asleep at those meetings?
In the end, GHS feels a little bit like a Jagger's record, intentionally or not.

Keith was definitely asleep during the creation of TY, as they agreed on calling the album Tattoo. He was taken aback by the album title change smiling smiley

great song - reminds me of something Taylor would play along John Mayall and the Bluesbreakers - How can a song not be good when Jagger says COME On BOY and Taylor rips is solo.

I love the fact that on Sweet Summer Sun DVD they use Hide Your Love with the Outro Credits of the DVD

It was a disappoint when it came out, after the Big 4 and Ya Yas. The Stones were at their peak infamy wise. 100 Years Ago sounded like the end. The mix was all over the place, with some songs not sounding as well recorded as others. Of course Angie dominated it.

With time I've learned to accept it for what it is, which ain't bad. Coming Down Again is heartbreaking. If it wasn't about Brian, Anita & Keith, it should have been.

I suspect many of us would hold better opinions of some albums if we could learn to appreciate them in isolation, on their own terms....

...without constantly focussing on how they aren't as good as the much vaunted great albums that went before [ or came after winking smiley ]

Not a very good album.
"100 years ago" is interesting, "Angie" is a very good ballad, "Winter" is a good occasion for Mick Taylor to shine (and I like how Jagger sings it), "Hide You Love" and "Can You Hear The Music" are okayish, the rest is either mediocre or just not good enough.

Re: Goat's Head Soup opinions

It's the ballads that are the really strong tracks on GHS, imo. Angie and Coming Down Again in particular. Excellent songs.

For the longest time, I thought GHS was their worst album, as in, keep Starf--ker and leave the rest. But I've since upgraded it to middling.

That opener, Mr. D is still awful. The next two are pretty good. I still detest Heartbreaker, and Angie is unbearably precious after Keith's intro.

Flip the record, and Silver Train ain't bad, but Johnny Winter did it better. Hide Your Love sounds like a demo, a cross between Exile on Main Street Blues and Shake Your Hips, with a nice Taylor solo at the end. Winter is the most fully realized song on the album, and oh that guitar break at the end, but where's Keith? Can You Hear the Music is awful, downer music, the Stones' Carouselambra, but with the tweetly flutes. And that song at the end is still pretty good. Tricks with fruit?

i loved it when it came out, and even more today. need to listen to it again. Heartbreaker is one of my faves, and has one of MT's best solos.

Such a disappointment when it came out, now I love it. The last album with that Jimmy Miller feel, something was just different on the next one when the Glimmer Twins took over production. I've always said Exile was like the best party you ever went to, GHS was the after-party the next morning, blissfully reminiscent of the night before, but hazy, hungover, and a "little worse for wear & tear". Coming Down Again pretty much sums up the whole wonderful thing!

I too, LOVE “Dancing With Mr. D”. The Story telling, the atmosphere, and at 8-9 years old it was like a ‘spooky camp fire’ story.

“…HeartBreaker” may have been a better choice, BUT, it does not evocative of the mood the album encompasses as a whole piece of work/art/package.

Looking back…self-reflection, confessional, are words NO ONE used on those iorr comments that I saw

“Coming Down Again” may be ‘junkie music’ to some. But to me, it is heartfelt, vulnerable, and beautiful with great lyrics. The Piece of pie he “slipped (my) tongue into “could represent most anything.



Dan,

I only sent half of the posts to you. I wish you could get online at work and join us.

I definitely don't view GHS as a let down. Is it the same as the previous release, Hell No, however no album is. If it was, it would become a double album. Each album tells a story about a certain period with the band, a snapshot of life, emotions, actions. They all have a particular flavor and each one carries some similarities from the previous BUT, is never the same. GHS is just another chapter in the Stones Story.

Psychedelia -> Dark Swinging London -> End of the Revolution -> Living Fast, Partying Faster -> Traveling Through The Wild USA -> The Comedown After The Wild Party....and so on.
At least that's how I view it.

In '73, I was still happily under the spell of EOMS. It took a while to
pay attention to GHS, and its been growing and growing and growing ever since.

This may be surprising.

My 'personal' favorite Stones album. Sure.. I know it's not their best .. I understand it's not very commercial (<not that it should matter) ..but it is special to me.

A Winter time album if there ever was one (hence the song).

Different .. murky ... much solace. My personal favorite by them.

I remember that back in the mid-1970s I really was struck by the sTicky Fingers and even more by the EOMS album. But then, GHS appeared more 'modern' because of the 'glam'-influenced Sound. Star Star and Heartbreaker sounded good (they were released as a single in Germany, if I correctly remember), and Angie was a mega hit.

Back in 1977 I bought the Nasty Music bootleg, and although I was immediately struck by the quality of the sound and performance (to this day I think it is one of the best live albums ever recorded) it took me a while to get used to the 'Angie' live version. Today I regard both versions as great, and sometimes I prefer the studio version while other times I like the live version more.
