"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.
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!
...this is a great spot to listen to HAVE YOU SEEN YOUR MOTHER BABY: you can hear the lyrics clearer than on the studio version ... this song is one of the best slices of modernism from pop culture: as I've said elsewhere, Bob Dylan should blush ...
... the humorous OFF THE HOOK breaks up the collection nicely ...
...overall enjoyable, this album may take a few listens to fully appreciate ... its raspy/raw/spontaneous, but its Stones Live, so what do you expect? The Anemia Orchestra? People looking for the Sominex Rockers should seek elsewhere ...(YOU try playing in front of a few hundred or a few thousand screaming chicks and people trying to throw objects at you while you try to play rock and roll...)
... of course the version of LOVING YOU TOO LONG is as good as everybody says it is, and may, overall, be the gem of the collection ...
... clocking in at just over a half-hour long, it's still plenty of high-powered fun, and still worth the investment, get it and play it ... and if you log it into your Media Player, be sure to set the Options record tab at 'Lossless' for better sound...
hope this helps...
It was an album of its time, and for its time (1966), it's pretty good. It does feature a few really good performances of "Under My Thumb", "Get Off Of My Cloud", "Satisfaction" and "Lady Jane". And since the band was among teenybopper idols back then, the screaming teenage girls are kinda expected. The album was originally released as "Hits Live", since the band already released live ep entitled "Got Live If You Want It" in 1965. In his book "Rolling With The Stones", Bill Wyman said of the album: "As an album, its filler, perhaps it was even viewed as a chance to cash in before the ride came to an end". In a way, he's right, but it isn't complete filler because there are a few good performances.

Perhaps even more than "Their Satanic Majesties Request," "Got Live If you Want It" is *the* hated-by-fans 60s Stones catalogue title. Read morePublished on June 26 2004 by David Goodwin
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?". Read morePublished on Jan. 10 2004 by Bob Hope
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 morePublished on July 8 2003 by Mark Minervino
Yes, the sound is terrible in spots. But the original LP sounded just as bad. Remastering can't cure poor recording. Read morePublished on April 22 2003 by T. McCool
This supposedly "remastered" edition of the Stones' 1966 live album is a big cheat. I can see why most reviewers at Amazon.com panned it. Read morePublished on Dec 1 2002 by Anthony Nasti
How can you tell me this cd is remastered?! This cd could have been a classic if it didn't have such poor sound. Read morePublished on Nov. 29 2002 by Anthony Nasti
