Get Yer Ya-Ya’s Out! Box Set Details

November 27th and 28th marked the 40th anniversary of the Rolling Stones concerts at Madison Square Garden that yielded the Rolling Stones’ breakthrough live album, Get Yer Ya-Ya’s Out! Reviewing the original album in the November 12th, 1970 issue of Rolling Stone, they wrote, “It’s still too soon to tell, but I’m beginning to think Ya-Ya’s just might be the best album they ever made. I have no doubt that it’s the best rock concert ever put on record.”


It’s 40 years later and that statement remains as true as ever. In recognition of this historic occasion, ABKCO Records released Get Yer Ya-Ya’s Out! The Rolling Stones In Concert: 40th Anniversary Deluxe Box Set and Super Deluxe Box Set in the U.S. and Canada on November 3rd. Both Box Sets were released internationally by ABKCO and Universal Music Group on November 30th.

The Deluxe Box Set gives you 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 MSG shows. The third CD encompasses unreleased performances by the shows’ stellar openers: 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 Collector’s book featuring photos and an essay by Ethan Russell, the acclaimed photographer who accompanied the Stones on the ’69 tour, whose book Let It Bleed: The Rolling Stones, Altamont, and the End of the Sixties was also released on November 2nd. The package also includes the original review by Lester Bangs, a series of recollections from a cross-section of fans who attended the concerts and a postcard size replica of the original Stones ’69 tour poster by David Edward Byrd. It comes with a code enabling fans to download “I’m Free (Live)” for Guitar Hero 5 in a limited number of Box Sets.

Included as well is a bonus 27 minute DVD presented in 5.1 surround by legendary filmmakers Albert and David Maysles, also entitled Get Yer Ya-Ya’s Out! The film includes brilliantly shot 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, 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 meetings between the Stones and some of rock music’s most legendary artists.

The Super Deluxe edition of Get Yer Ya-Ya’s Out! The Rolling Stones in Concert is the same as the Deluxe with the addition of three vinyl LPs, one of which has etched images featuring the cover art and the Rolling Stones’ signatures.
