November 2009 marks the 40th anniversary of the recording of the Rolling Stones concerts at Madison Square Garden that yielded the epochal Get Yer Ya-Ya’s Out!, the band’s definitive live album. This 40th Anniversary Deluxe Box Set comprises three audio CDs including a remastered disc of the original Ya-Ya’s repertoire as well as a disc of five previously unreleased Stones tracks recorded at the same Madison Square Garden shows. The third CD encompasses unreleased performances by the shows’ support acts: B.B. King and Ike & Tina Turner, five songs from the former and seven songs from the latter. The box set also includes a 56 page Collectors Edition book featuring photos and an essay by Ethan Russell, the acclaimed photographer who accompanied the Stones on the '69 tour, as well as the original Rolling Stone Magazine review by Lester Bangs and a series of recollections from a cross-section of fans who attended the concerts and a replica of the original tour poster by David Byrd. Included as well is a bonus DVD by legendary filmmakers Albert and David Maysles, also entitled Get Yer Ya-Ya’s Out! The film includes full-length performances of the five previously unreleased Stones songs--"Prodigal Son", "You Gotta Move", "Under My Thumb", "I’m Free" and "(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction". Beyond the song performances – presented in 5.1 surround sound--the film includes a sequence with Mick Jagger, Charlie Watts and Jack the donkey during the cover shoot for the Ya-Ya’s album and backstage tête-à-têtes between Keith Richards, Jimi Hendrix and Mick Taylor.

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 Out!' 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.Read more ›
The sets by B.B. King and Ike and Tina Turner got the evenings' entertainment off to great start. To me, B.B. King sounds on great form, while hearing Tina Turner sing the likes of 'Son Of A Preacher Man' and The Beatles' 'Come Together' is a real treat indeed. As for the Stones themselves, well, 'Midnight Rambler' is awesome and arguably the highlight of the original album, perhaps followed closely by a really funky 'Sympathy For The Devil'. Of the outtakes contained on disc two, I particularly enjoyed Mick and Keith doing the acoustic 'Prodigal Son' justice with a really punchy performance.
The DVD is composed of unused footage from the movie GIMME SHELTER but this is far from disposable; the rendition of 'Prodigal Son' captured here is lovely as Keith finishes the song too early which prompts a reaction of surprise from Mick! It's a lovely moment as the two share a giggle in recognition of the mistake.
Finally, the hardback book contained in the box is a nice souvenir, containing personal recollections from, among others, the photographer Ethan Russell, a reproduction of the unused sleeve design for GET YER YA-YA'S OUT! and a typically florid contemporary review of the LP from that late, great music critic Lester Bangs.
All in all, this a lovely time capsule of The Rolling Stones at a performing peak and, if you start by playing the support sets by B.B King and Tina Turner on disc three first, it's the closest you'll ever get to accurately re-living two nights of great music at the end of the 1960s.
The BB King and Ike & Tina Turner disc offers a standard BB King set with great sound quality but what a true delight is the Ike and Tina set - just wonderful.
The DVD at around 30 minutes is an interesting if dispensible addition (you have to feel sorry for Jack the donkey stuck out on newly finished M5 in the cold and wet) but the whole box is nicely packaged, first rate sound quality, the stones billed as the greatest rock n' roll band in the world delivering a fine performance. And for once well done ABKCO!
