The Rolling Stones will reissue their 1973 studio album Goats Head Soup in various formats including super deluxe box sets via Polydor/Interscope/UMe on September 4. Included in the box set, deluxe CD and vinyl editions are 10 bonus tracks consisting of alternate versions and outtakes. Three of the tracks are previously unreleased with “Criss Cross” — out today — among them.
Ronald Belford “Bon” Scott ~ b. July 9, 1946. The original.
Some call it the greatest live album ever and it’s hard to argue. Released on July 6, 1971, it’s #49 on Rolling Stone’s 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.
In 2004, the album was selected for preservation in the Library of Congress, deemed to be “culturally, historically, or aesthetically important” by the National Recording Registry.
July 6, 1972 ~ Bowie appears on the BBC’s Top of The Pops. It’s not his first time but it’s the first time for Ziggy Stardust. A raised eyebrow and a look straight into the camera and for the rock n’ roll soul of the audience watching on TV it was all over. Bowie — and Ziggy — had arrived.
