Product Description

Product Description

RSD.

Product Description

As Brian Jones' time with the Stones (and with the rest of this world) was drawing to a close, the band was becoming both more progressive in its conception and more adept in its musicianship. Though the studio recordings from this golden period are impeccable, nowhere is the band's growth more evident than on GOT LIVE IF YOU WANT IT. Recorded by Glyn Johns at London's Royal Albert Hall, this album shows the Stones as a powerful live unit, now capable of subtle emotional shadings as well as rock & roll raveups.

The Stones pay homage to their roots with versions of "Not Fade Away" and "Satisfaction" that easily rival their studio cousins. It's the point at which the Stones' musical trajectory veers off from the blues that things get really, interesting, though. From the ominous "Under My Thumb" to the Elizabethan "Lady Jane" and the transcendent, Dylan-influenced "19th Nervous Breakdown," the band shows off its musical sophistication both compositionally and in spirited performances. An essential live document of one of the band's finest hours.

2.0 out of 5 stars A weird album becomes a weirder reissue... June 26 2004
Format:Audio CD
Perhaps even more than "Their Satanic Majesties Request," "Got Live If you Want It" is *the* hated-by-fans 60s Stones catalogue title. It shares its name with a British EP of the same name (which was itself recently reissued in the expensive "Singles 1963-65" boxed-set), but does not duplicate its content; while that British EP was a short, live burst of the Stones at their prime, the LP is an odd mish-mash of live, demo, and studio tracks, many with overdubs and overlaid with a chorus of screaming teenagers. It isn't a bad album, per se, but it isn't what it presents itself as, and its sloppy, poorly-thought-out aura can be either endearing or maddening. Strangely, however, this inconsequential throwaway of an album has had a fairly storied history on CD.
When the first Stones albums came out on CD in the late eighties, "Got Live if you Want It" was present in two very different configurations. The CD released on West German/Japanese London Records was of the LP's stereo mix (albeit with a few oddly-inserted segues), a nice, wide, listenable affair which certainly accentuates the record's blatant artificially--those lead vocals sound re-recorded in the studio--but at least presents the album in an enjoyable context. In the states, however, Stones label ABKCO decided for reasons clear only to them that "Got Live if You Want It" was due for an overhaul.

5.0 out of 5 stars we have lift-off! Feb. 23 2004
By clio
Format:Audio CD
Right: This album is "obviously not a real concert" - it's obviously culled from assorted 1966 concerts (plus a couple of studio busks), with all the uneven sound quality you'd expect under the circumstances. So is there something wrong with that?!?
As a matter of fact ... there's plenty wrong with that (and the album title is fair warning, so don't blame the Stones!). Live roots rock in the 1960s was a riot of frenetic every-man-for-himself energy - the musicians couldn't hear a dratted thing up there - and the Rolling Stones were fantastic at it. This great little album gives us a hilarious, roughshod, whoa-nelly taste of what they sounded like just getting off the launch-pad.
If you love the Stones, and/or know first-hand what playing rock & roll live is like, you'll get a great raving kick out of this. If not ... get your ya-ya's out!
PS In _Rolling With the Stones_ Bill Wyman confirms that a couple of these tracks are studio busks, not in-concert recordings. So what - it all rocks!

4.0 out of 5 stars The Music Is Not That Bad!!!!!!!!!! March 19 2004
Format:Audio CD
Most of the complaints coming from people are about the quality. And I admit the quality isn't great, either are the studio ABKO albums that ABKO says are really good. And even the case was ripped at the spine. But the music is rather nice to listen too. The Stones take some songs a little to fast and rush it sometimes, but overall it's a great live album. The guy who said the songs weren't reall,he's wrong. The Stones just added parts like organs and more guitars, but the music was taken from a live preformance, with just added overdubs in the studio after. This album is quite good!

3.0 out of 5 stars Crappy quality, fake concert Jan. 10 2004
Format:Audio CD
This Stones CD was the first one I bought, and I regret it. When I first heard this CD, i was thinking "Are the Rolling Stones really this bad?". When I got more into the Stones, I realized that this CD isn't even a real concert. The songs that haven't been overdubbed or fakely put in are : Under my Thumb, Get Off Of My Cloud, 19th Nervous Breakdown and Not Fade Away. Lady Jane, I'm Alright, Have You Seen Your Mother Baby?,and Satisfaction have been overdubbed, and I've Been Loving You Too Long and Fortune Teller were early Rolling Stones recordings mixed with screaming from other parts of the concert. It's nice to have a '66 cocert that's not a bootleg, but the Stones could have put in some more songs from Aftermath like : Stupid Girl, Mother's Little Helper, Paint It Black, and Goin' Home. I've seen a video of the Stones at the Royal Albert Hall, and this Cd is not at the Royal Albert Hall. I don't know where this show was recorded, but it was certainly not at R.A.H. If you can't find a bootleg from '66, then I suggest buying this, but if you can find another '66 concert, don't buiy this! The sound is really crappy, and most of ther concert is fake!

3.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable album, but another ABKCO Rip Off Nov. 20 2003
Format:Audio CD
The mono copy of "Got Live If You Want It," which I received back in 1966, was my first real LP album. It was a Christmas gift. It's still entertaining, although I never could figure out why the studio cuts were ruined by the poorly (and unnecessary) addition of the screaming fans.
"Not Fade Away" is my favorite. The other selections may be a bit crude and at times sloppy, but it's certainly not boring!
I wish that ABKCO would stop ripping us off by misleading us into thinking that the recordings were truly remastered and improved.
If ABKCO would like to give us our moneys worth of improvement, it would be as simple as releasing the stereo versions of all the recordings which were recorded in true stereo instead of subjecting us to mono or worse yet, those recordings which were "electronically rechannelled for stereo."
Did you know that "Out of Our Heads," which features "Satisfaction" was the first Rolling Stones album which was entirely recorded in stereo (at the RCA Studios in Hollywood)?
About 15 years ago, the stereo version of "Hot Rocks," with almost all the selections in true stereo was available. If enough of the old fans would complain and demand to know why we are being deprived of the superior stereo recordings, maybe there would be some new releases of old recordings which would be worth buying.

Don't confuse techno with guts. My advice is to pretend that you're young again, put on the cans (that's headphones, kids), and turn this thing up until it hurts. Read more

3.0 out of 5 stars Agree with all reviewers
I give this cd 3 stars but the Otis Redding cover on track 5 is worth the price of the entire disc; I thought I was listening to Otis himself.
