The Rolling Stones make UK chart history with Goats Head Soup reissue

The Rolling Stones have made UK chart history with the reissues of their 1973 album, “Goats Head Soup.”

According to the Official Charts Company, the project debuts atop the Official Albums Chart to become the first band in history to score a No. 1 album across six different decades.

The feat earns the Stones their 13th chart-topper to equal the number by solo acts Elvis Presley and Robbie Williams, while The Beatles remain at the top of the list with 17 UK No. 1’s.

Other notable acts who managed No. 1s in five separate decades include The Beatles, Elvis Presley and Bob Dylan.

The 2020 debut marks the second time that “Goats Head Soup” has topped the UK album chart, following a similar debut in 1973.

The record was the band’s fourth with guitarist Mick Taylor, who was added to the lineup in 1969 following the firing of founding member Brian Jones.

The expanded reissues deliver three previously-unreleased tracks, including “Criss Cross”, “Scarlet” – which features guitar work by Jimmy Page, and the recently revamped “All The Rage.”

“Goats Head Soup 2020” is now available in multiple configurations, including four-disc CD and vinyl box set editions, Deluxe 2CD and 2LP versions, and single CD, vinyl and cassette packages.
