Rolling Stones - Get Yer Ya-Ya's Out! RIAA Certified Platinum! Click here to see this CD at!

By Dan Epstein

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.

"Your reveiw couldn't be further off the mark. "Get Yer Ya-Ya's Out!" is one of the essential live rock n' roll albums. Keith Richards is in fine form delivering the ultimate Chuck Berry riffs on "Carol" and "Little Queenie" as well as reaching tremendous heights with the first solo on "Sympathy for the Devil". Mick Taylor provides heartbreaking slide on "Love in Vain" as well as tasty new licks on "Street Fighting Man" and the second solo on "Sympathy". The two players mesh well on the pumping rhythms of "Jumpin' Jack Flash" and "Midnight Rambler". Live LPs usually fail to capture the excitement of being there but "Ya-Ya's" gets it in spades. They are introduced as the greatest rock n' roll band in the world and on the dates this LP was recorded they certainly earned that title. I wore out five vinyl copies and I still play it often oh and yes "Charlie's good tonight isn't he?""
