Mick Jagger Initially Thought Lost Rolling Stones Songs were Terrible

Here's the latest from RTT music news.

olling Stones front man Mick Jagger says he initially responded negatively when he was told that three previously unreleased songs by the band will be included in the new box-set version of the band's 1973 album Goats Head Soup.

When Jagger was informed that "Scarlet," featuring Jimmy Page, "Criss Cross" and "All the Rage" will be included on the new box set version, his first response was, "They're all terrible."

"They said, 'We've found these three tracks'," he told The Sunday Times. "I said, 'They're all terrible.' That's always my initial reaction, 'They're all useless!' I mean, actually, I always liked the songs, but they weren't finished."

The tracks were initially recorded during sessions for Goats Head Soup but never featured on the full release. The box-set version of Goats Head Soup drops on Friday, September 4.

"Sonically they still sound like they were recorded then, even if they weren't perfect," Jagger said. "You can make them sound a little better than they did."

However, he changed his mind and decided that "these three songs are all up there with the rest of the songs on this record."
