The New Stew

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. It was also the last tour to feature just the Stones only – the band proper with co-founder and pianist Ian Stewart – without additional backing musicians. The performances captured for this release were recorded on 27 November 1969 (one show) and 28 November 1969 (two shows) at New York City's Madison Square Garden, while "Love in Vain" was recorded in Baltimore, Maryland on 26 November 1969. Overdubbing sessions were undertaken during January 1970 in London's Olympic Studios. The finished provduct featured new lead and backing vocals on most tracks, and some overdubbed guitars on "Little Queenie" and "Stray Cat Blues." The title Get Yer Ya-Ya's Out! is taken from a Blind Boy Fuller song, "Get Your Yas Yas Out". The lyric in Fuller's song was "Now you got to leave my house this morning, don't I'll throw your yas yas out o' door", in which "yas yas" was a substitute for "ass"
