Editorial Reviews

Returning to the American concert scene after a three-year layoff, the Rolling Stones recorded GET YER YA-YA'S OUT! during a triumphant two-date stand at Madison Square Garden in late November 1969 that found B.B. King and Ike & Tina Turner opening for them. Having amassed an impressive recorded output during their three years away from touring, the Stones peppered their sets with hits, including "Honky Tonk Women," "Jumpin' Jack Flash," and "Street Fighting Man." Tipping their collective hats to Chuck Berry, the band also included covers of "Carol" and "Little Queenie" alongside more blues-influenced numbers such as "Stray Cat Blues" and "Love In Vain."

Having been a member of John Mayall's Bluesbreakers, new guitarist Mick Taylor parlayed his experience into some impressive slide guitar work. The pièce-de-resistance of what is arguably the best live Rolling Stones recording is the eight-minute-plus reading of "Midnight Rambler." Between Mick Jagger's unearthly harmonica playing and the tight interplay between Taylor and Keith Richards, the sinister vibe emanating from this song was eerie, foreshadowing the tragedy that would occur at Altamont less than two weeks later. Observant fans will catch the cover's subtle visual reference to a certain lyric from Bob Dylan's "Visions of Johanna" from BLONDE ON BLONDE.

Sometimes called the greatest live album ever, Get Yer Ya-Ya's Out is a brilliant album recorded at Madison Square Garden during the Stones' 1969 live peak. While calling it the greatest live album ever is exaggerating its worth slightly, it's the best live album Mick and the boys ever released.
Ya-Ya's showcases how they've evolved as a band since 1966's Got Live If You Want It. Gone are the sloppy playing that was heightened by the screaming teenagers. Here, the band showcases themselves as accomplished and focused musicians. Part of this transformation was the new kid on the block back then, Mick Taylor. While not as versatile as Brian Jones, Mick Taylor played the best lead guitar ever for the greatest rock 'n' roll band in the world. Taylor works hard but never overplays; his riffs are brilliant on Jumpin' Jack Flash, Midnight Rambler & Sympathy For The Devil (listen to the second solo, it's by him, not Keith). Stray Cat Blues is much different from Beggars' Banquet's version, with the runaway's age changed from fifteen to thirteen, and slowing down the tempo. Love In Vain is brilliant, and on it Taylor again shines. Carol and Little Queenie are great and do justice to Chuck Berry's originals. Live
With Me Rocks with out-and-out fantastic bass playing by the great Bill Wyman. Honky Tonk Women is the only song here I think could have been better, but Street Fighting Man is great, thanks to yet again Taylor's fantastic electric lead guitar work.
Get Yer Ya-Ya's Out isn't the greatest live album ever, but it lands near the top. It's a blistering example of how good live the Stones are when they feel like being this good rather than extremely sloppy. Compared to this, Love You Live and Still Life are big letdowns. I recommend this album today.

No doubt you have been reading all of these reviews stating that "this is the best rock 'n roll ablum ever" etc. and great details about each song. But nobody has mentioned the recording quality and sound quality of this album. I have listened to and been a fan of the Stones since 1965. This album sounds like no other they released in terms of recording quality. The more you listen to it, the more detail you pick up. I have never heard another live rock album that made me feel like I was more in a concert in terms of sound, atmosphere and pure joy. OK, I'll say it, this is the "Hope Diamond" of rock albums.
I can't understand why the Glimmer Twins never made another album like this one. All their other live albums pale in comparison. And none of their studio albums have the energy of this one. Some Girls comes close as does Exile on Main Street, but that's it.
I'm trying to be objective here even though the Stones are my all time favorite band in my forty years of hearing them. If you could have only one Stones album, this one is it on many levels.

There was only one version of Get Yer Ya Ya's Out! This is it. It was released simultaneously in the UK and US on Sep 4, 1970. Although the album was supposed to have been recorded at Madison Square Garden during the 1969 tour, most of the tracks were overdubed later and there are questions about what songs were recorded which nights and where. Karnbach and Bernson are fairly sure that Love in Vain was recorded on Nov 26th at the Baltimore Civic Center with the other tracks recorded during one show Nov 27 and two shows Nov 28 at Madison Square Garden and during the Nov 29 show at the Boston Garden.
This is the remastered super audio CDs (SACD) of the Stones ABCKO catalog (which includes all the early Decca/London material. ABCKO acquired the Stones' catalog after Allen Klein became their manager in 1965. The resulting legal battles produced releases that the Stones opposed (they took out full page adds asking fans not to buy them), including the controversial Metamorphosis releases (which are now available on CD for the 1st time ever). But the sad fact is that the Stones lost control of their great early material. With these remastered SACD releases, we at last have some idea of what they really sounded like in the studio. I guess if we had these 40 years ago they would have ended up Greatest Rock And Roll Band in the Universe instead of Greatest Rock And Roll Band in the World.
Many serious Stones fans consider this the best of the live albums they have done over the years. It was the 2nd live album but it caught them at their peak as a driving band with their own megahits first peaking....Honky Tonk Woman, Jumpin' Jack Flash, & Street Fighting Man are all delivered hot and fresh with blazing licks by Keith on everything......

One of the greatest live albums that exist today. The Stones were at the top of their game by the time they arrived at Madison Square Garden.

But there are a couple of points to make.

First, the sequencing of the songs. Because original vinyl has it's limits, songs from a live show couldn't be sequenced in the same order they were played in concert. What would happen is the songs were placed in such an order to balance out two sides of an album. With the advent of CDs, this re-sequencing is totally unnecessary. Yet the CDs are still pressed in the same manner as the original vinyl! At one point, Mick says, "Charlie is good tonight", and they launch into Honky Tonk Women. In the actual concert they start Satisfaction (I have a bootleg of some of the songs and that is how I know about which song is played).

Another point. Why isn't the whole concert being issued on CD? Since most CDs can pack about 78-80 minutes of music, there is no excuse not to issue the complete or nearly complete concert on CD. Even f they made it a 2CD set that contains the whole concert, I have no problem in buying it. Since the Stones have been poorly represented live early in their careers, having the complete concert on CD(s) would be fanatistic!
