About this copy: This copy of Got Live If You Want It! is a 1966 U.S. mono pressing on the London label.
The cover is VG, with moderate general wear, but no splits.
The mono disc is VG++ and close to M- with just a couple of faint sleeve scuffs. The record is clean and has had little play.
A nice play copy of a classic LP.
Background: Released in late 1966, Got Live If You Want It! was the first live album by the Rolling Stones.
The album reached #6 on the U.S. album charts; the LP was not released in the UK.
A live document of the Brian Jones-era Rolling Stones sounds enticing, but the actual product is a letdown, owing to a mixture of factors, some beyond the producers’ control and other very much their doing. The sound on the original LP was lousy, and for that matter not all of it’s live; a couple of old studio R&B covers were augmented by screaming fans that had obviously been overdubbed. Still, the album has its virtues as a historical document, with some extremely important caveats for anyone not old enough to recognize the inherent limitations in a live album of this vintage.
