thumbnail link to original 1973 Rolling Stones promo poster Goat's Head Soup, veiled Jagger image

THE ROLLING STONES, GOATS HEAD SOUP, 1973

Original U.S. promo poster, 24"x24"
Design Ray Lawrence. Photography David Bailey.

The original concepts for the album's design by Hipgnosis were rejected and Jagger instead returned to Decca-era stalwart David Bailey. Bailey's image of a veiled Jagger was quirkily inspired by Katherine Hepburn in 'The African Queen', but the ghostly images of the band tied in perfectly with the voodoo tinge of the album's Jamaica-recorded opening track.

SOLD - please inquire if you'd like us to source this for you.

Infamous culinary masterpiece from the end of the band's greatest period. Recorded in Jamaica, Bill Wyman remembers: "We would be driven to Byron Lee's studio through downtown Kingston. Two large, double gates guarded by the man with the shotgun would open and let us in and then close behind us."

The single that decisively announced that the band's dalliance with the psychedelia of Their Satanic Majesties Request was over. Musically it was a restatement of core values; lyrically it reflected the traumas of the previous year's drug busts; most importantly it was the opening track to the band's greatest era.
