If there’s a musical equivalent of Kobe and MJ teaming up together, we may have finally found it.
A long lost Rolling Stones recording has finally been unearthed and features none other than Led Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page. The song comes from when the bands were at the height of their storied careers in 1974. “Scarlet” is thought to be named after Page’s daughter and also features Blind Faith’s Rick Grech on bass.
The recording comes as part of a reissue of The Rolling Stones 1973 album Goats Head Soup. The Stones will reissue the album as a multi-disc standard and deluxe vinyl and CD set due out September 4.
Coinciding with the announcement was the release of a previously unheard song called “Criss Cross.”
“Criss Cross” is one of three unheard tracks that will be featured on the Goats Head Soup reissue. The previously mentioned “Scarlet” as well as a song called “All The Rage” make up the other two tracks. Also included in the package will be 10 bonus tracks with alternate versions and outtakes.
Those purchasing the Goats Head Soup box set will receive a 15-track live album called Brussels Affair. The live album was recorded in October, 1973 at the Forest National Arena in Brussels, Belgium and was originally released back in 2011.
The Brussels show is of note as it also served as the French stop on the band’s European tour. At the time, The Stones were banned from entering Europe due to drug cases against Keith Richards, Bobby Keys, and Anita Pallenberg.
