Finishing the week just over 800 sales ahead and leading on physical copies, this is the second occasion that Goats Head Soup has landed the Number 1 spot – it originally debuted at the top of the charts on its release in 1973.
In landing a Number 1 today, the Official Charts Company can confirm that The Rolling Stones set a new record, becoming the first band in Official Chart history to score a Number 1 album across six different decades.
The Rolling Stones now have 13 Number 1 albums, putting them equal with Elvis and Robbie Williams – only The Beatles have achieved more Number 1 albums in the UK (15). View where all The Rolling Stones’ hit singles and albums charted.
