The Rolling Stones - 'Get Yer Ya-Ya's Out' (Promo) (2006) Retail CD
For a group renowned worldwide as 'the greatest rock 'n' roll band in the world' the Stones have struggled to show much in the way of evidence in their released live output, however i'm pleased to say 'Get Yer Ya Yas Out!' proves to be a happy exception.
The 1969 tour was far more sophisticated than the Stones earlier tours where the audience had come as much to hear the Stones perform as to scream. The level of sophistication in the Stones performance was improved no end with the arrival of virtuoso guitarist Mick Taylor as well as the Stones having a better sound system.
'Get Yer Ya Yas Outmore…!' shows the Stones as they are nearing their peak as live performers and mixed in with the many really good performances are a few truly great ones - my favourite, perhaps, being 'Sympathy For The Devil' which has a different arrangement to the studio version yet is no less effective. Keith Richards and Mick Taylor's playing here is truly memorable with their guitar interplay as much of their sound has a harder rock approach than had been typical of the Stones up until this point. Taylor's stinging lead on 'Stray Cat Blues' is another perfect example along with the delicate 'Love In Vain'. The two Chuck Berry covers 'Carol' and 'Little Queenie' are slowed down a little to reveal a real swagger in their delivery which is typically the essence of the classic Stones sound. Add to these great versions of 'Jumpin' Jack Flash', 'Street Fighting Man' and the dextrous 'Midnight Rambler' and it's really hard to go wrong.
I'm not entirely in agreement with the view that 'Get Yer Ya Yas Out!' shows the Stones at their absolute peak however, especially in light of the many live Stones bootlegs which have been circulating over the years. There has been a lot of overdubbing on many of the songs and a few do sound considerably better in the 'Gimmie Shelter' film from the same concert performances ('Jumpin' Jack Flash' for example). Also the Stones are a little 'stiffer' sounding on this tour than some of the later Mick Taylor period tours (particuarly 1972-73) when they really did exemplify the essence of rock 'n' roll.
However, what 'Get Yer Ya Ya Out!' proves is that by 1969 the Stones live experience was just as unique as their run of classic albums from this same period and the purpose of these performances were not really about recreating what was achieved in the studio. The Stones live sound was far removed from their studio sound with the emphasis being on a more hard edged bluesy rock feel with different arrangements (unlike in more recent years) and this makes for some fascinating listening. These live versions offer some nice alternatives.
No other (officially) released live Stones album comes close, although there are a few concert performances hiding in the vaults which could give 'Get Yer Ya Yas Out! a good run for its money.
