Product Description

Product Description

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.

Rolling Stones Photos

Introduced at the beginning of their second live album as "the greatest rock & roll band in the world," the Stones come off instead as perhaps the world's sloppiest. Recorded at Madison Square Garden on the first dates of the 1969 tour that would end at Altamont, Ya-Ya's shows our heroes struggling manfully to get comfortable with a stadium-size PA system. Of the nine songs included here, only "Love in Vain," "Stray Cat Blues," and "Live with Me" come close to matching the fire of their studio versions; much of the time the band just sounds ragged and distracted. Still, given that it's the only official live document from the period in which Mick Taylor was the Stones' lead guitarist, Ya-Ya's is a must-own for any die-hard Stones fan. --Dan Epstein

I have fond memories of my brothers and I listening to this album over and over and over. Recorded in '69 in New York City and Baltimore, released in '70; at that time, the Stones really were, arguably, the greatest rock band out there, or certainly one of the greatest. The whole album is enjoyable, with old time bluesy tracks like "Carol" and "Little Queenie", and the totally outstanding "Midnight Rambler". Jagger demonstrates why he's a legend and Keith just rocks it solid. That song alone is why I had a poster of the Stones on my bedroom wall throughout most of the 70s!

If you have not seen Gimme Shelter you need to. Jagger not only sang the chorus to "Jumpin' Jack Flash" different on this tour, there is no overdubbing on the DVD. The only tracks that have the live vocals on Ya-Ya's are the superb "Midnight Rambler" and the Baltimore (not New York) recorded "Love In Vain". If you listen carefully throughout the whole record you can hear the live vocal come through the guitar tracks (just as you can on Love You Live and Still Life).
"Sympathy" has a whole verse edited out. Regardless, this album is most excellent - why "Under My Thumb" and "Gimme Shelter" were not featured on the re-release I'll never understand. The Chuck Berry tracks are great - those two tracks are really what rock'n'roll is all about and, of course, performed by one of the greatest rock'n'roll bands ever - at their peak creatively even. "Street Fighting Man" is excellent - a pure guitar driven monster. "Honky Tonk Women" could have been missed. But that's just a minor complaint right? It's still beautifully raunchy.
This has to be their best 'live' album. I'll say No Security comes second, Stripped third, Still Life fourth, Flashpoint fifth and Love You Live sixth. Their first live album sucks so bad I'm not giving it a rating or even printing its name.

This is definitely a fantastic live album. It pretty well showcases the tour of '69, and captures the energy, musicianship, and showmanship of the Rolling Stones in that time period.
I listen to whatever strikes me as good, and alot is in that category. but I'm not one of those people who expects a band to play a song EXACTLY the same as the record. In fact, I don't see the point in making a live album that sounds just like the record. It would just be the same, but with crowd noise, right?
i guess i could see how that really would sound great, but you can't reproduce an intimate sound from a studio record. An example of a good attempt to scrutinize every detail like that, is The Wall Live, and Alchemy.
Here are the points I look for in a live album:
1-The chemistry is both obvious and strong and the playing is at least good
2-The tempos are good
3-The versions of the compositions are either different and magical or close to the album and powerful
4-The album portrays a sense of excitement
5-The artistes are having fun
IN MY VIEW, this album portrays each of these at an outstanding level. The only problem with this album is that the crowd noise buries the songs at some points, and even for a live album, the sound, not the playing, isn't very subtle or intimate. Charlie's drums sound tinny, and Mick's voice isn't very loud. Although the the guitars' (including the bass) sound great.
What makes this my favorite is the playing quality. They make it sound easy and smooth on nearly all the tracks, except for maybe "Live With Me." Which sounds slightly forced. But in my opinion, this album evokes perfectly why the Stones kick ass.
(even now, they do. I caught the concert in Houston in Jan. 2003, and it was the best thing I'd ever seen)

Probably the Stones' best live album, "Get Yer Ya-Ya's Out" is one of the greatest, most energetic concert recordings of the 60s.
It was recorded over two nights at Madison Square Garden in late 1969, and features superb, tough renditions of some of the Roling Stones' best songs, as well as terrific versions of Chuck Berry's "Carol" and "Little Queenie".
The sound is simply excellent, and the mix pushes the sinewy, interlocking guitar playing of Keith Richards and Mick Taylor to the forefront.
The Stones do hard rock, blues, and the swinging rock-samba-fusion of "Sympathy For The Devil", and "Get Yer Ya-Ya's Out" goes from highlight to highlight:
"Jumpin' Jack Flash", "Street Fighting Man", Robert Johnson's stately "Love In Vain", the classic "Honky Tonk Women", and a great, nine-minute "Midnight Rambler".
This album is one of the high points of the Stones' career. Never again did they manage to assemble a live album with this much power and grit, and very few of their records manage to pack this much fire and energy into a ten song track list.
Highly recommended.

I must fully agree with almost every other reviewer here, this is simply one of the best live recordings a rock 'n roll band has ever put forth, probably for all time. But I would like you to also consider giving a listen to the Rolling Stones Rock 'n Roll Circus. Keith's lead guitar intro on "Jumpin' Jack Flash" is the most gutsy, powerful, and distinctively played series of guitar power chords that I have ever heard on any live album of the last thirty five years. And yes, I have and love the Pie's "Rockin' the Fillmore", Allman's "Live at Fillmore East", Who's "Live at Leeds", Little Feat's "Waiting for Columbus", and many others, as well as every other live album the Stones have ever done. The only drawback on the Rock 'n Roll Circus version of "Jumpin' Jack Flash" is that Mick's tonal inflections on the lyrics are just a bit under-energized compared to the way he stretchs his enunciations on the 45 rpm single release or the way he powers his vocal delivery on the Ya-Ya's version. Also, great are "Sympathy For the Devil" and "Can't Allways Get What You Want" although the extended guitar solos on "Sympathy For the Devil" on Ya-Ya's are better than on Rock 'n Roll Circus. "Can't Always Get What You Want" on Rock 'n Roll Circus blows away any subsequent live version of this song that you might have ever heard from "Love You Live" onward. So, by all means buy "Get Yer Ya-Ya's Out", it's the best, but don't overlook "Rock 'n Roll Circus", it might make you want to sneak under the Stones Big Top the next time they are in town.
