As the Rolling Stones roll on with their "50 and Counting" tour, celebrating their 50-year anniversary, ABKCO is continuing to roll out their reissue series "The Rolling Stones Clearly Classic" on 180-gram clear vinyl. The series showcases the artistic heights the band reached in the late '60s and early '70s. This copy of Get Yer Ya-Ya's Out was plated and pressed at Quality Record Pressings for exceptional sound quality.
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."
Get Yer Ya-Ya's Out! The Rolling Stones in Concert holds the distinction of being the first live album by any artist to have reached No. 1 on the U.K. charts. 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 9-minute-plus reading of "Midnight Rambler," which includes extended harmonica solos.
