Title: GET YER YA YA'S OUT
Street Release Date: 08/27/2002
- another Stones SACD ripoff
Yeah, the music is great. Blah blah blah. We all know the music is great. But seriously, what's up with this SACD junk? I'm not gonna pay $20 CDN for a hybrid-SACD. And I don't have a SACD player and refuse to get one. I really don't think the sound quality is gonna be what they market it to be. It's definitely not going to be that good that it covers the ridiculous price that they charge. If they're gonna remaster it like this, at least keep on printing the originals so they're affordable (kinda like with the Bob Dylan catalogue). And if you're gonna remaster it and charge this high a price, AT LEAST PUT SOME BONUS MATERIAL IN THERE....more info
- Get Yer Overdubs!
If you have not seen Gimme Shelter you need to. Jagger not only sang the chorus to "Jumpin' Jack Flash" different on this tour, there is no overdubbing on the DVD. The only tracks that have the live vocals on Ya-Ya's are the superb "Midnight Rambler" and the Baltimore (not New York) recorded "Love In Vain". If you listen carefully throughout the whole record you can hear the live vocal come through the guitar tracks (just as you can on Love You Live and Still Life).
"Sympathy" has a whole verse edited out. Regardless, this album is most excellent - why "Under My Thumb" and "Gimme Shelter" were not featured on the re-release I'll never understand. The Chuck Berry tracks are great - those two tracks are really what rock'n'roll is all about and, of course, performed by one of the greatest rock'n'roll bands ever - at their peak creatively even. "Street Fighting Man" is excellent - a pure guitar driven monster. "Honky Tonk Women" could have been missed. But that's just a minor complaint right? It's still beautifully raunchy.
This has to be their best 'live' album. I'll say No Security comes second, Stripped third, Still Life fourth, Flashpoint fifth and Love You Live sixth. Their first live album sucks so bad I'm not giving it a rating or even printing its name....more info
- It may not be the best live album ever, but...
...I'd venture to say the Sympathy on this disk is one of the top two or three live songs on any live album. That Sympathy alone makes this disk a must-have for any Stones or live music fan. The Midnight Rambler and Stray Cat Blues are nice little bonuses....more info
- maybe the best live album ever.
after a rather bold statement claiming to be the worlds greatest rock and roll band ,this album starts off fast and furious with jumpin jack flash and ends the same way with street fighting man. there's alot of energy and wham bam on this record and it does sound live. kinda rough in some sections, feedback it has it all. i've gone through an 8-track version,i've an old album that dates back to the mid 70s and i've a CD copy of it. rock and roll at it's best. and a must have for stones fans new and old like me!!!!!...more info
- Great Live Album From A Great Band

This would of been a great concert to see of the rolling stones this is the stones when they still sounded fresh and new live in concert buy this cd if you still dont have a live album of the rolling stones...more info
- Classic Early Rolling Stones
I had this recording years ago on cassette. Reading Keith Richards unauthorised biography recently reminded me of how great it was then so I needed to "upgrade" to CD. I always thought that Chuck Berry was "Rock n Roll" and his music played by Rolling Stones and others in better technological times was the epitome of great "Rock n Roll" . The version of Little Queenie on Get Yer Ya-Ya's Out recorded live in 1969 is, in my opinion, everything that "Rock n Roll' music is and perhaps ever will be.

- I was there
The first concert I ever went to. I was 15, towards the back, on the floor level of the Garden. This CD captures it as it was, except better because you can relive it any time you want. Raw, alive, rocking and bluesy as hell.
Essential. If you don't have it, get it, now. If you do have it, put on, now. And LOUD!
"Well, alright!"...more info
- A great live concert.
This is a classic live concert from the stones. Full of raw energy and fine playing. The guitar solos and sound are very clear and together. Mick is in fine form and Charlie keeps the beat tight.The only fault is maybe a slightly bright recording. This really is fine example of the stones live and is a testiment to a band who took care in producing quality recordings for their fans.For the music it gets 90% and 85% for the recording....more info
- "I 'ope me trousers don't fall down...."
Three years before the '69 tour The Stones were playing through live concert equipment so inferior it often made it hard for the band to hear themselves on stage. By 1969 modern technology prevailed, monitors were invented and now made it possible to hear exactly what was going on on stage. At the same time this was happening The Stones were going through their own evolution. Mick Taylor had been plucked from John Mayall's Blues Breakers to play on the Let It Bleed album just as Brian Jones was on his way out of the Stones. Taylor's guitar sound & crunch was synonymous with Richards style of playing and that invigorated everyone in the band and a tour of the USA was planned.
With newer technology, a new guitar player and a new sound the Stones blazed across America with a vengence. This album adds weight as to why the Stones were dubbed "the greatest rock and rock band in the world". They kick off the set here with a rousing Jumping Jack Flash that is a pure adrenaline rush. The next song is a version of Chuck Berry's Carol and is played with the same vigor & enthusiasm the Stones have displayed when ever they have covered Mr Berry's material. Next up is Stray Cat Blues from Beggars Banquet and is played a little slower and sang with more of a swagger from Jagger. It is the perfect leeway for the Robert Johnson number, Love In Vain which follows. Mick Taylors slide here is pure sizzle throughout this Delta blues workout and the band shows how exemplary they are when interpreting "the blooze". An 8 minute Midnight Rambler is nothing short of evil as is Sympathy For The Devil. Live With Me has a scorching solo from Taylor that is played with the kind of confidence that comes from knowing you and your band are s**t hot and in the pocket. Another Chuck Berry cover Little Queenie and Honky Tonk Woman are played with the usual open tuning Berry-esque/Stones fervor that leaves the crowd screaming for more. And more is what the Stones give them with a fiery rendition of Street Fighting Man before ending the show.
Never before or since 1969 have the Rolling Stones played so loose yet so tight, so reckless but in complete control or so hell bent & primal. This is the band that defined the rock and roll lifestyle. They lived to live and play on the edge with no apologies and to hell with the consequences. Just before the band broke into Sympathy For The Devil an inebriated girl implored Jagger, "Paint It Black, Paint It Black, Paint It Black you devil". Indeed....more info
- Great Live Release
This disk captures the Rolling Stones at their absolute peak live in Madison Square Garden in 1969. The crowd raises to a fever pitch, the Stones play like their lives depend upon it, and the song selection is perfect. Better than the earlier live release, "Got Live If You Want It", the Stones tear through "Jumping Jack Flash" then Mick Taylor and Keith kill on Chuck Berry's "Carol". Listen to the guitar interplay on the second verse closely and you will hear the live Stones at their best. "Stray Cat Blues" and "Love In Vain" are great blues versions, where Taylor shines. "Midnight Rambler" is an absolute masterpiece as well, from the opening vocal rave up by Mick, through his whining harmonica and the crunching guitar chords. The arrangement starts with a standard time, then slows to a powerful yet sparse middle, and then concludes with a powerful finale. "Sympathy For the Devil" starts with Keith's guitar, and is much looser than the studio release, but swings more than previous versions. One of the absolute gems is "Live With Me", off Let It Bleed, where Keith's riff tears through the speakers. The harmonies are tight, yet never smooth and quite urgent. "Little Queenie" is the second Chuck Berry tune, which also suits the Stones perfectly. The version of "Honky Tonk Woman" is unbelievable, as Keith thunders the opening riff a few times to build the mood before breaking into the tune. The disk concludes with "Street Fighting Man" which is performed uptempo from the original. In all this is, by far, the best of many live Rolling Stones releases, and one of the classic live albums of all time....more info
- "you devils"
I tell ya what this is wicked stuff. At their pinnacle, with Mick preening and teasing. Keith as always the driving force of the band. Mick Taylor now fully ensconced. And the base of it all solid and creative always and forever.. Bill and Charlie. Moments before they launch into THE best version ever of 'Sympathy for the Devil', A female voice is yelling for 'Paint it Black' "Paint It Black you devils!" She didn't get her request , but I doubt she was disappointed. I wasn't. You won't be either. ...more info
- My Favorite Live Album From My Favorite Band
This is definitely a fantastic live album. It pretty well showcases the tour of '69, and captures the energy, musicianship, and showmanship of the Rolling Stones in that time period.
I listen to whatever strikes me as good, and alot is in that category. but I'm not one of those people who expects a band to play a song EXACTLY the same as the record. In fact, I don't see the point in making a live album that sounds just like the record. It would just be the same, but with crowd noise, right?
i guess i could see how that really would sound great, but you can't reproduce an intimate sound from a studio record. An example of a good attempt to scrutinize every detail like that, is The Wall Live, and Alchemy.
Here are the points I look for in a live album:
1-The chemistry is both obvious and strong and the playing is at least good
2-The tempos are good
3-The versions of the compositions are either different and magical or close to the album and powerful
4-The album portrays a sense of excitement
5-The artistes are having fun
IN MY VIEW, this album portrays each of these at an outstanding level. The only problem with this album is that the crowd noise buries the songs at some points, and even for a live album, the sound, not the playing, isn't very subtle or intimate. Charlie's drums sound tinny, and Mick's voice isn't very loud. Although the the guitars' (including the bass) sound great.
What makes this my favorite is the playing quality. They make it sound easy and smooth on nearly all the tracks, except for maybe "Live With Me." Which sounds slightly forced. But in my opinion, this album evokes perfectly why the Stones kick ass.
(even now, they do. I caught the concert in Houston in Jan. 2003, and it was the best thing I'd ever seen)
- Yes, it's that good...
This is one of the best records the Stones have ever released. It is concise, powerful, intense, and brilliantly played. It is amazing how well Mick Taylor melds into the band, so recently added as he was by the time this tour started. I'm not convinced that the strict lead/rhythm method the band took on during his tenure is the best sound for the band. I think Brian Jones and/or Ron Wood weaving their guitars with Keith is better than Taylor's more constricting format, but this is still an excellent highlight for that unique stage in the Stones' history. I can't imagine Love In Vain ever done better than here with Taylor demonstrating his slide chops and his additions to Jumping Jack Flash, Midnight Rambler, Sympathy, and Street Fighting Man are excellent as well.
Furthermore, the band is truly scary on Midnight Rambler, Street Fighting Man is exhilirating and leaves you breathless, Sympathy is quite different than the studio version with good lead work by both guitarists, and Live With Me and the Chuck Berry covers are as rocking as any band ever gets (as well as being Keith Guitar School 101). There is simply not a dull moment or a bad song on this entire set.
As Keith pummels you with the opening hammer of Jumping Jack Flash just after Sam Cutler introduces the Greatest Rock and Roll Band in the World, you may come to realize that this document is the evidence that proves his Beatle-bashing boast beyond any doubt. ...more info
- One of the best concert albums of the 1960s
This has to be one of the best recorded concert albums of the 1960s--and it still holds up pretty well today. This was the Rolling Stones at the peak of their "stardom." And, ironically, this was a part of the concert tour featuring the deadly events at Altamont, graphically captured in the movie "Gimme Shelter." I'd love to go over each song in detail, but that would be too much. . . .
The concert at Madison Square Garden leads off with one of the great rock songs of all time, "Jumpin' Jack Flash." The opening riff is powerfully played; the rhythm section (Charlie Watts and Bill Wyman) is at its best; the guitar work (Keith Richards and Mick Taylor) is rock strong. Mick Jagger's vocals are a bit ragged, but that makes sense in the concert setting. Who wants to hear a song exactly as on the album (as too many stars play it today)? A wonderful live version of this classic.
Robert Johnson's "Love in Vain" is pretty spare as he recorded it. The Stones cover this classic very well indeed. Jagger has always been a credible blues singer (note his live "Ya Gotta Move"). The guitar work is simple and backs the vocals well; the simple rhythm backing makes sense for this song. Blues-y and convincing.
Then the paean to Albert DiSalvo, "Midnight Rambler." This is probably the best recording of this song ever produced by the Rolling Stones. The subject of the song, the Boston Strangler, makes this creepy--but also great rock and roll. The introduction is improvisational, with Jagger starting before the band. They recalibrate and this work begins. Guitars chunk out notes, Jagger plays the harmonica, the rhythm section is strong. There is an extended instrumental break that is delightful. Taylor and Richards play well off one another; Mick Jagger's harmonica work is Dylan-esque. Then there is the part of this song, with drum beat, where he whacks the stage with his belt (if this is the way he performed it as he did in two later concerts in Buffalo, NY that I saw), as we head toward the grisly denouement. The last words are those spoken by the Strangler himself, lending, again, a chilling edge to this song.
Then, to "Sympathy for the Devil," very effectively performed, as the Stones seem to (no matter how unlikely) blame everyone for the Kennedys' death ("Who killed the Kennedys; Well after all, it was you and me").
The concert album closes out with a leering and very rock and roll version of "Honky Tonk Women" (compare with the country version on the album). Finally, "Street Fighting Man," where Jagger bemoans the fact that all he can do is sing in a rock and roll band, rather than being a street fighting man, because "in sleepy London town," that's all he can do. This is a bookend piece with "Jumpin' Jack Flash," providing a symmetrical close to the concert.
So, to conclude, this is one of the most classic live concert recordings of the 1960s--and it still sounds good today. The Rolling Stones are much more polished performers now; the rawness then might be something they would want to try to recapture to some extent. . . ....more info
- LIVE ALBUMS THIS IS THE BEST ONE!!!
Anyone who has heard a better more exciting live album than this let me know. Ooooh baby this is rock music. The opening intros say "the greatest rock and roll band in the world" Yeah right you say and then the opening chords of Jumpin Jack Flash and the words"Watch It" and you KNOW that it's no hype. Every track is excellent and most are classic. My favourite moment in music is the point in Midnight Rambler when Keith shifts the boogie gears shift into high and Mick Taylor lets rip with a crying howling solo. Phenomenal. Keith sometime downplays Mick T's contribution but this is probably a result of disappointment at his leaving. He was the best fit with Keith in my book with all due respect to Brian and Ronnie who were/are great too. Some other great moments are 'Little Queenie' where Chuck Berry is left in the shade. Street Fighting Man very exciting. Every Song is good. I wish albums these days were only 40 minutes long imagine how good Voodooo Lounge would have been without the 3 or 4 tracks of filler. Mick says Charlie's good tonight inne. He sure is, and so is Bill , Mick T, Keith and the old Mick himself. Dylan's Live 1966 is awesome and so is much of Led Zep's 'How the West was Won' but this thing has the edge on those. BUY IT AND PLAY IT LOUD! ...more info
- "EVERYBODY SEEMS TO BE READY...ARE WE READY?
From the opening introduction to the last guitar cord ringing fade out, this is the Stones best live album and one of the greatest live albums of all time. There is a big debate on the Amazom review board about this album. Some think this Stones live album is not as great as it's reputation. Stating out of tune guitars, mistakes ... blah, blah, blah. The Stones are the greatest "rock and roll" band! Rock and Roll is not about being perfect....is it? I know that some would name other bands that they consider able to "blow the Stones away live", but this is not a contest of who can play the fastest or hardest. The Stones are not known for being technically perfect musicians. They are tremendous songwriters and have written many of the greatest rock anthems in history! I am a musician and their playing ability is excellent, but it is their style and writing craft that sets them apart. Their sound is seemingly easy, but just try to duplicate it. The Stones have an amazing ability to take a 3 cord progression and turn it into something special. Musically, Brown Sugar, Jumpin' Jack Flash and Honky Tonk Woman to name a few, are nothing more than basic rock tunes in the hands of any other group. Yet, I have never heard another group pull off an exact sounding cover of any of their songs.
If I want to listen to incredible musicians I throw on a Rush album, if I want to rock I listen to the Stones. If there is any other live album that comes close it might be Lynyrd Skynyrd's "One More From The Road"! The boys are smokin' on that one, surpassing every one of their studio counterparts, but the Stones have more classic songs on one album than they have in their entire recording history. So, give me "Get Yer Ya ya's Out" with all it's raw wild power, because it rocks like no other,...blemishes and all! If I have any complaints about this album, it's that they should have released the complete show. Satisfaction, Gimme Shelter and Under My Thumb to name a few songs done on that tour, could have been added to this rip roarin' live CD. It's a shame because there are some incredible versions available in the movie 'Gimme Shelter' I would love to see them add Satisfaction and Gimme Shelter from that source....more info
- Memorbale Live Concert
Recorded on dates November 27th and 28th at New Yorks Madison Square Garden, this is one of the stones best live albums and concerts ever recorded. It is a really good album with lots of energy and great guitar riffs and drumming its an album you cant miss by the stones. Starting off with an energetic Jumpin Jack Flash with great riffs and solos and drumming than going into a great version of Chuck Berry's Carol with cool solos than things are slowed down a bit with the ballads Stray Cat Blues and Love in Vain. But things get back too the way there supposed too be with Midnight Rambler, the classic version is on here with the great blues jam in it. Than Sympathy Devil starts out with someone who was possibly under the influence saying, "Paint it black, play paint it black you devil", but instead of playing that song the band plays an energetic version of controversial, "Sympathy For The Devil". Than the band goes into another great rocker, "Live With Me", and than another Chuck Berry Tribute, Little Queenie. Than the band starts off with Honky Tonk Women with Mick Jagger saying, "Charlies good tonight aint he", but the drummer doesent show off with a solo or anything just starts playing the beat too Honky Tonk Women. Than the band finished this album up with Street Fighting Man an okay version but the band might of either been under the influence or just tired. You cannot miss this album if you love live albums you will love this album. And they certinaly lived up too there name on this concert as, "The greatest rock n roll band in the world the rolling stones!"...more info
- Much better than Got Live..
The first Stones Album, the first Live Album i ever bought was the first Stones Live Album and it was the first and only one i ever returned. I said the singing sucks and the playing is just damn awful. i was ready to give a whole list and fight to get my money back. Guess what? there was no argument, he agreed he said this was 'THE' album in the record section of Gimbel's Department Stores that has had the highest return to manufacturer at that time. I bought Ya-Ya's with a little please God let this be the one. It did not let me down. The Cover's and the Originals and singing plus Mick Taylor on Guitar was a corner stone to the album. I loved Brian Jones's work with the Stones and his betrayal was a key reason for the Stones sloppyness that was with them for a long time, included on their GLIYWI Album. Even though The Stones improved i still miss Brian Jones and his Musical Skills that made them hits. Can you imagine him on the Sitar and Mirimba at Concerts, today. Ya-Ya's Rocks, it did then, and in a Dinosaur Way, it still does....more info
- My favorite Stones album
No question about it.
I could listen to The Rolling Stones covers of Chuck Berry's "Carol" and "Little Queenie" on this album
10 times a day every day for a year and never get sick of hearing'em.
"Midnight Rambler" played here is the definitive version of the tune.
The studio release pales in comparison.
The sleazy bluesy feel of "Rambler" captured on "Ya-Ya's" could never be duplicated in a recording studio.
The best part of this album though is in the first moments when a climactic energy seems to've gripped Madison Square Garden when the band is in the process of being introduced and taking the stage.You can practically feel the excitement and anticipation coming right thru your speakers from the crowd and the wild manner of the microphone announcements.It still brings chills to me imagining how that scene must've looked as it was playing out.
Again...my fave Stones record.A must have classic for your collection....more info
- The GREATEST Rock n Roll Band in the World Proves Its Title
With this album The Rolling Stones demonstrate that there was never--and 40 years out--that there will be never another rock n roll band to match their intensity and primal force. The manic aggressive, thundering throb
of their rhythm, propelled by Keith and new guitarist Mick Taylor, are shown on songs like Midnight Rambler and Sympathy for the Devil, and for those critics who view Keith as just a rhythm guitarist, listen to the 2nd solo of Sympathy: that's Keith blasting some well-chosen, simple notes into eternity.
This album is rock n roll perfected. From the melancholy Stray Cat Blues
to the sociological and revolutionary portrait, Street Fighting Man, it's all here, and Bob Dylan's supposed remark to Jagger "I could have written Satisfaction but you couldn't have written 4th Street" is gutted by lyrics
such as those of Sympathy (inspired by Baudelaire's Flowers of Evil) and Stray Cat: when would Dylan ever write about sex involving a 13 year
old groupie and her warrioress psyche, and detonate the neurotic
puffery of our puritan era? Jagger is as profound as he wants to be, and
as gleeful, as in the pure joy of Honky Tonk Women, performed for the 1st time on the 1969 tour. There's a philosophy of The Dance--just ask Bacchus--and Jagger HAS IT.
While there were some minor over-dubs, mainly for continuity, these performances from the 1969 American tour in NYC--of course in NYC--are simply unsurpassable. Bootlegs from the same tour show the Stones often
hit these levels of intensity, and that these performances were not as Rolling Stone magazine sneered, just a lucky night---actually THREE "lucky nights."
The only dispute I or anyone could have with this album is that it was not a triple LP. Perhaps some record executive at Decca will instead of acting like a blob, act like a curator and issue more of the hours of recordings taken from these and other 1969 concerts. Boys, the 2009 40th anniversary for this lengendary album is coming up, so why don't you for once do something noble for THE FANS--oh, I forgot, you don't care about anything but Brittany Spears, or is it The Strokes and all those timeless
talents destined for the Whatever Happened To ? section of the National Enquirer.
Were anyone trying to communicate to anthropologist in 200 years what Rock n Roll was about and how it exploded in the 1960s into one of the most expressive art-forms ever invented, this would be the album presented.
"You don't want my trousers to fall down now do ya?"
- The world's greatest rock 'n roll band at their best
I was lucky enough to see the Stones during their 1969 tour at the University of Illinois Assembly Hall. That was the first time I heard 'Sympathy for the Devil' and 'Midnight Rambler'. Absolutely electrifying - let me tell you! This album really does recapture the atmosphere of a live Stones concert of the time. The Stones were always a better live act than a studio band....more info
- Best Live Album Ever!
This is, in my opinion, the best live album ever. It features the Rolling Stones' second line-up:
Though I prefered Brian Jones to Mick Taylor, the former died so what can you do? The songs are great and not one is bad. Here's a brief run-through of them:
1.Jumpin' Jack Flash-This song is one of the best rock 'n' roll songs by the Rolling Stones. It rocks!
2.Carol-The first of the two Chuck Berry covers on this album. It is good but not as good as the other one, "Little Queenie".
3.Stray Cat Blues-Another classic, with less of an edge. But it still blows your speaker out! However, I liked the "Beggars Banquet" version of it more.
4.Love in Vain-This is a soft, bluesy song that is really traditional, though Mick Jagger and Keith arranged it differently and made it their own. A nice break before the hard stuff comes in again.
5.Midnight Rambler-This is a long song spanning 8 minutes and thirty-two seconds. But it is all filled with romping hard rock. No elongated jam sessions though. This song inspired AC/DC's "Night Prowler".
6.Sympathy for the Devil-A KICK-*SS, GREAT SONG!!!!! This is not an incredibly hard song or an incredibly soft song. IT'S A FREAKIN' EPIC! I love this song! Previousley Keith woulda unleashed a distorted solo but he was drugged out at the time, and Mick Taylor didn't play like that so it was shortened down from 7 minutes, something seconds to 5 minutes and 45 seconds.
7.Live With Me-In my opinion the hardest song in the Rolling Stones catalog. It is one of my favorites!
8.Little Queenie-The better Chuck Berry cover in this album. Really, really good!
9.Honky Tonk Women-One word: BRILLIANT!!!!
10.Street Fighting Man-From the same album as "Stray Cat Blues" and "Sympathy for the Devil". Incredible!
The Rolling Stones were the best band on the face of the earth!...more info
- Still great aftert all these years
Okay, so I loved this album when I was a young teen, and it still translates. They were kids back then; saw them again in the Meadowlands 10 years ago and I saw some grandparents take two generations with them. Still the greatest rock and roll band in the world!...more info
- One of the greatest live albums ever, one of the Stones' best albums...
This is one of the Stones's best live albums, and one of my favorite live albums of all time. Despite the familiarity of the material (the album has mostly well known Stones songs), it's still dynamite and the Stones really bring passion, intensity, and brilliance to every performance here. I even prefer the live versions of Street Fightin' Man, Midnight Rambler, and Honky Tonk Women than their studio counterparts. I also love the version of Sympathy for the Devil with its killer guitar solo by Keith Richards. While the studio version is a masterpiece, the Stones wisely didn't try and duplicate that sound on stage (check out Godard's film Sympathy for the Devil/One Plus One to see how meticulous it was to put together that song), and here they make the live version as memorable as the studio one. The actual recording is pretty good, considering most live albums in the past didn't have the best recordings techniques. This is one of the best live albums ever, and no serious Stone ran (or rock fan) should be without it. ...more info
- Little Queenie
One of the most ridiculous album covers ever created housed one of the best live rock and roll recordings ever created. Other reviewers have more than done justice to the good and the not-so-good of this record/CD. Suffice to say that "Little Queenie" is, in my opinion, the greatest live recording of a rock-and-roll song ever, and alone is worth the cost of the CD....more info
- Best live Stones album .
"Get yer ya yas out " was such a significant live album but never recognised . It was a magificent collection of tracks that had all theelements you feel when you are there - LIVE. Matt Taylor's guitar was superb on Sympathy for the Devil and was a leap abovethe work of Brian Jones .
