This three-disc remastered Ya-Ya's includes the original in all its gritty glory. Disc Two is a five-song EP from the same shows, with acoustic performances--"Prodigal Son" and "You Gotta Move"--from Richards (playing a resonator guitar) and Jagger. The third disc is an unexpected treat: blistering sets by openers B.B. King plus Ike and Tina Turner (doing an outrageously steamy take on Otis Redding's "I've Been Loving You Too Long").
This smart four-disc package commemorates the concert's 40th anniversary with a pristine remastered version of the original recording, five previously unreleased songs from the same show and an entire disc devoted to the fiery opening acts, B.B. King and Ike & Tina Turner.
All the unearthed Stones material is strong--particularly the pair of acoustic numbers, "Prodigal Son" and "You Gotta Move"--but in comparison to what made it onto the LP, they do sound like outtakes (to be fair, the LP did have some minor overdubs whereas these five cuts seem to be unadorned with additions), and they're also overshadowed by the absolutely terrific opening sets.

Jan 8, 2015Simply the best live R&R album recorded/released. Everything, especially the guitars of Richards and Mick Taylor are just fantastic.
Jagger,Simply the best live R&R album recorded/released. Everything, especially the guitars of Richards and Mick Taylor are just fantastic.
Jagger, Watts, all at the top of their games.
The addition of the last five tracks makes this even better than the album I wore out a couple times in the 70's.
Some people think the duelling guitar solos in Street Fighting Man are great,...but the guitar in Can't Get No Satisfaction, the last song on this newly released album is mighty tasty as well.
It doesnt matter how loud I play it,...I can't make it sound bad. And the the neighbours never complain.
That's gotta say something Ya?,...Oh Ya!
