    i just downloaded some tracks of this from itunes.
    Wow, killer stuff. i thought i liked the Brussel's '73 show better , boy was i wrong.
    this is one of the greatest live shows ever and now with improved sound.
    Midnight Ramble is amazing and so is Love in Vain. Jumpin' Jack Flash is a great opener.
    The whole atmosphere is like the greatest party you ever went to. classic rock-n-roll!
    i wanna get the video.

    That album is probably the reason I play guitar.

    It is one of the few Stones albums I like more than a couple of tracks from.
    I bought it when it was first released and now have a CD copy.
    Mick Taylors was at his best, the guitar work is great.
    Some albums , even when the music itself is good, don't sound that good because there is something sonically that wasn't captured.
    GYYYO is one of the rock era albums that captured the huge guitar, bass, and drums sound.
    The sound engineers deserve a pat on the back.

    Best version ever of Midnight Rambler. The album overall is dessert island ranking for me.

    yes, agreed......that's the one thing i noticed on this 40th Anniversary release is that the drums sound fantastic , great recording all around , the energy and live atmosphere of the show is captured perfectly.
    The Stones were the hottest act around at the time, they were Gods.
    I've heard that that '69 tour was their first US tour in 3 years , so the audience was seeing the "classic" Stones live show for the first time.

    I guess it was Mick Taylor playing rhythm, but Carol on that album really shows the power of a simple rhythm guitar riff and a simple drum groove. Listen to the groove starting around 2:06, and particularly around 2:23. It's not possible to listen to that without one or more body parts moving along with it.

    Gotta mention Charlie's backbeat at the end of the song too. I generally don't like the Stones much, but they got everything right on Ya Yas. That whole album is textbook blues/rock.

    yeah that's the thing about it, Charlie Watt's drumming is superb...the pace of the songs is perfect, never forced and tastefully done by Watts. Mick Taylor locks right into the groove allowing Keith to do his Chuck Berry thang.
    The drums sound great on this 40th Anniversary.

    This may well create a $hitstorm, but I feel like Midnight Rambler off of YaYa's got spun at the Abbey Road studios when the record came out. I can see John, Paul, George and Ringo, looking at eachother and saying "Yeah, we can't compete with that". Someone's bound to point out that the timing is not right, but I still think that the live shows that the Stones and the Who were throwing down indicated to the Beatles that the game had changed profoundly.

    I still get a thrill every time I hear that version of Midnight Rambler.

    I'm a big fan, but I wish we didn't have buy it in another format again. In ten years will they tell us this one was inferior and we have to get the new one?

    yeah, i hear ya....but what can ya do.
    i downloaded 11 tracks and it ended up costing me $14.00 , but what the hell it sounds great, the songs go right into my itunes and i just put them right into my ipod for when i go mobile and i'm happy....so to me it's worth it big time.
    I mean we're talking about one of the greatest live albums ever recorded.

    One of my top five. Midnight Rambler and Love In Vain are killer.
