'Get Yer Ya-Ya's Out!' The Rolling Stones in Concert is a live album by The Rolling Stones, released 4 September 1970 on Decca Records in the UK and on London Records in the US. It was recorded in New York and Maryland in November 1969, just before the release of Let It Bleed. It is the first live album to reach number 1 in the UK.


Having not toured since April 1967, The Rolling Stones were eager to hit the road by 1969. With their two most recent albums, Beggars Banquet and Through the Past, Darkly (Big Hits Vol. 2) being highly praised, audiences were anticipating their live return. Their 1969 American Tour's trek during November into December, with Terry Reid, B.B. King (replaced on some dates by Chuck Berry) and Ike and Tina Turner as supporting acts, played to packed houses. The tour was the first for Mick Taylor with the Stones, having replaced Brian Jones shortly before Jones' death in July; this was also the first album where he appeared fully and prominently, having only featured on two songs on Let It Bleed.

The performances captured for this release were recorded on 27–28 November 1969 at New York City's Madison Square Garden, while "Love in Vain" was recorded in Baltimore, Maryland on 26 November 1969. Overdubbing was undertaken during January and February 1970 in London's Olympic Studios. No instruments were overdubbed, although on bootlegs, examples are known of Richards trying out different guitar parts (e.g. a guitar solo on "Jumpin' Jack Flash"). The finished product featured new lead vocals on half the tracks, and added backing vocals by Richards on several others.

Some of the performances, as well as the photography session for the album cover featuring Charlie Watts and a donkey, are depicted in the documentary film Gimme Shelter, and shows Jagger and Watts on a road in Birmingham, UK in early December 1969 posing with the donkey. The actual cover photo however was taken in early February 1970 in London, and does not originate from the 1969 session. The photo, featuring Watts with guitars and bass drums hanging from the neck of a donkey, was inspired by the lyrics to Bob Dylan's "Visions of Johanna" (although these lyrics refer to a mule).

In the Rolling Stone review of the album, critic Lester Bangs said, "I have no doubt that it's the best rock concert ever put on record."

'Get Yer Ya-Ya's Out!': The Rolling Stones in Concert was released in September 1970, well into the sessions for their next studio album, Sticky Fingers, and was very well received critically and commercially, reaching No. 1 in the UK[6] and No. 6 in the US where it went platinum. Except for compilations, it was the last Rolling Stones album released through Decca Records in the UK and London Records in the US before launching their own Rolling Stones Records label.

The title of the album was adapted from the song "Get Yer Yas Yas Out" by Blind Boy Fuller. The phrase used in Fuller's song was "get your yas yas out the door".[7]

In August 2002, 'Get Yer Ya-Ya's Out!' The Rolling Stones in Concert was reissued in a new remastered album and SACD digipak by ABKCO Records.[8]

In November 2009, the album was reissued with unreleased songs by The Rolling Stones but also by opening acts B.B King and Ike & Tina Turner. It includes a DVD and a 56-page booklet.[9]

The songs on the second disc of this edition ["Prodigal Son", "You Gotta Move", "Under My Thumb", "I'm Free", and "(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction"] are downloadable tracks for the video games Guitar Hero 5 and Band Hero. Additionally, "Under My Thumb"" is included on the Nintendo DS version of the game Band Hero.
