Singer/songwriter Sadler Vaden, guitarist with Jason Isbell’s 400 Unit and ambassador for the timeless spirit of rock'n'roll, joins me to shine a light on an underrated classic from the Rolling Stones catalogue, 1973’s Goats Head Soup.
Why has this album always lived in the shadow of Exile on Main St? How did the guest musicians like Billy Preston influence these songs? Do Sadler and Jason Isbell fight over what the best Stones album is? Which song of Sadler’s is directly inspired by ‘Angie’? Why did the Stones record Goats Head Soup in Jamaica? Why don’t the Stones play most of these songs live? What lyric in 'Winter’ has Sadler been mishearing for years, and how does The Wire fit in?
