|Goats Head Soup track listing|
"Silver Train" is a song by the rock and roll band The Rolling Stones, from their 1973 album, Goats Head Soup. The lyrics deal with the singer's relationship with a prostitute. Recording of the song had already begun in 1970 during sessions for Sticky Fingers. It also was the B-Side to the single "Angie", which went to No. 1 in the US and top 5 in the UK.
Rolling Stone critic Bud Scoppa had this to say of the song:
|“||Side two begins modestly with "Silver Train," a rock & roll song with a pre-rock flavor. The Stones' approach is like their treatment of "Stop Breaking Down," one of Exile's sleepers: lots of whiny slide guitar and harp. They also emphasize, with their ragged ensemble shouts, the song's appealing chorus. "Train" is the best of the album's secondary songs.||”|
Johnny Winter had heard a demo of the tune and recorded a cover of it for his album Still Alive and Well in 1973 (Columbia Records). Song written for Johnny Winter by Mick Jagger & Keith Richards. His album's version was released even before Goats Head Soup. The Black Crowes have also covered the song live. Silver Train also appears on the Carla Olson / Mick Taylor "Too Hot For Snakes" album first released in 1991 and reissued autumn of 2012.
