Performer: The Rolling Stones
Engineer: Glyn Johns; Gus Skinas...
Producer: Andrew Loog Oldham; Jody H. Klein (Reissue)...
Distributor: Universal Distribution
Notes: The Rolling Stones: Mick Jagger (vocals); Brian Jones, Keith Richards (guitar, background vocals); Bill Wyman (bass); Charlie Watts (drums). Recorded live at the Royal Albert Hall, London, England on September 23, 1966. Audio Remasterers: Jon Astley; Steve Rosenthal; Teri Landi; Paschal Byrne. As Brian Jones' time with the Stones (and with the rest of this world) was drawing to a close, the band was becoming both more progressive in its conception and more adept in its musicianship. Though the studio recordings from this golden period are impeccable, nowhere is the band's growth more evident than on GOT LIVE IF YOU WANT IT. Recorded by Glyn Johns at London's Royal Albert Hall, this album shows the Stones as a powerful live unit, now capable of subtle emotional shadings as well as rock & roll raveups. The Stones pay homage to their roots with versions of "Not Fade Away" and "Satisfaction" that easily rival their studio cousins. It's the point at which the Stones' musical trajectory veers off from the blues that things get really, interesting, though. From the ominous "Under My Thumb" to the Elizabethan "Lady Jane" and the transcendent, Dylan-influenced "19th Nervous Breakdown," the band shows off its musical sophistication both compositionally and in spirited performances. An essential live document of one of the band's finest hours.
Entertainment Weekly (9/20/02, p.104) - "...We fight to hear the band amid a barrage of crowd screams...but the band still manages a biting 'Under My Thumb'..." - Rating: B-
Originally part of the early 1960s British blues/R&B scene, the Rolling Stones rapidly ascended the heights of fame with a perfect combination of hit singles and media-grabbing scandals. By the '70s, Keith Richards had become a bona fide guitar hero, and Mick Jagger an unlikely sex symbol. The world became the Stones' stage, and their music continued to walk the line between blues, rock, and whatever lay around the next corner, be it reggae, funk, or disco. Despite the ravages of changing fashion, solo albums, and plain old age, the Stones persevered through the decades to become a venerable institution, refusing to relinquish their title as "The World's Greatest Rock & Roll Band."
