The Rolling Stones: Get Yer Ya-Ya's Out

Sound — 10
Get Yer Ya Ya's Out is probably The Greatest lives Stones album ever. It is maybe the greatest live album ever. There are Ten tracks on the album. Mick Taylor is the lead guitarist and he is a monster on guitar. Keith Richards play an awesome guitar too. Mick Jagger vocals are highly impreesive. Charlie Watts keeps the beat and is always doing great. Mick Jagger plays a little harp on this album. And Bill Wyman rocks just as much as everyone else. There are two Chuck Berry covers on this album which are Little Quennie and Carol. The Rolling Stones play mostly the songs off Beggars Banquet and Let It Bleed. They also do a couple singles such as Honky Tonk Women and Jumpin Jack Flash. This album is strange to me because insted of the big hits off Let it BLeed such as Gimme Shelter and You Can't Always Get What You Want the Stones are playing the albums rocking songs like Live With Me and Midnight Rambler which isn't a bad thing. The Guitars in this album are awesome. Mick Taylor came up with fresh riffs for Symapthy For The Devil, Stray Cat Blues, Live With Me, and more. There are so many rockers on the album like Jumpin Jack Flash, Street Fighting Man, and Midnight Rambler. There is a slow song called Love In Vain which is a Robert Johnson cover. And plenty of blues. It is all loud guitars. None of there acustic, country, ballads, or popish songs like Ruby Tueday are on here.

Lyrics are great. Mick Jagger is a great frontman who really conects with the crowd. He sings great to beggining all the way to the end. Some vocal highlights are Sympathy for the Devil, Love in Vain, Carol, and Midnight Rambler. Some lyrics that are great are Jumpin Jack Flash, Street Fighting Man, and Honkey Tonk Women. Also Mick Jagger gives 100% the whole show which is nice. In other words he sings great.

Overall Impression — 10
In my point of veiw if there was a pole for the greatist Stones alums of all time it would go Exile On Main Street, Let It Bleed, Sticky Fingers, Beggars Banquet, Get Yer Ya Ya's Out. It's that good. If you are a Rolling Stones and you dont have this one get some money go to best buy and buy it.

    I've got this bad boy on vinyl. Fell in love with Midnight Rambler after listening to it on this album. Best Stones live album there is.
    It is pretty damn good - he really whips up the crowd good on this 'un
    ive got this one on vinyl and on cd, and i giant poster of it in my room. great album. love it to death. rock on stones.
    I personally like "Live Licks" better, I think it has a better song selection.
    The Stones were at their instrumental peak with Mick Taylor. This is album is up their with Sticky Fingers, Let It Bleed, and Beggar's Banquet (Mick Taylor played on Sticky Fingers and Let It Bleed also).
