Our finest congratulations to Mick, who turned 77 just last sunday! One of the greatest Rock performers in our times, Mick still is the singer for a rock’n’roll band since six decades now! I mean, W-O-W!
On July 22, he was interviewed for the BBC’s Zoe Ball Breakfast Show (Stones content starts at 2:00:00 !), where he was asked about the new old song “Scarlet”and Jimmy Page got interviewed, too.
In that interview he also was asked anout how long we still have to wait for the new album (at about 2:09:20), and he said that by the time theygot ‘Ghosttown’ down he was finishing and adding last touches on some other tracks, adding instruments and mixes. He thinky they need ‘a couple more sessions‘. Right now, they don’t get together for this, but what’s been produced so far sounds pretty good to him. At 2:13:30 then starts the Jimmy Page part. Give it a listen and enjoy!
Here’s the next release of previously unpublished songs out of the Goats Head Soup sessions:
That’s when in 1974 Led Zepplin just ended their studio session and next were the Stones. Page chose to stay and in the end, this track, “Scarlet”, was cut to tape.
“My recollection is we walked in at the end of a Zeppelin session. They were just leaving, and we were booked in next and I believe that Jimmy decided to stay … We weren’t actually cutting it as a track, it was basically for a demo, a demonstration just to get the feel of it, but it came out well, with a line up like that, we better use it.”
The Rolling Stones have issued a new (old) song to celebrate their Goats Head Soup re-issue!
The 1973 album Goats Head Soup is re-released in various packages and formats, featuring rarities, outtakes and alternative mixes from the sessions, a new stereo mix of the original album, a complete show from the accompanying tour and three previously unreleased tracks (‘Scarlet’, ‘All The Rage’ & ‘Criss Cross’) from the period.
The song’s called “Criss Cross” or “Criss Cross Man” and it’s one of three unheard tracks featured on Goats Head Soup 2020. And here you have the official video! Enjoy!
