Rolling Stones "Got Live If You Want It!" Full Album

About "Got Live If You Want It!" (1966)

Got Live If You Want It! cover Got Live If You Want It! is an album of mostly live recordings by the English rock band the Rolling Stones. It was released in November 1966 by London Records in the United States. With its release, the label attempted to fill a marketing gap between the Stones' studio albums and capitalise on their popularity in the US market, which was heightened that year by a famously successful North American concert tour supporting their hit album Aftermath (1966).

Discouraged by the fan hysteria accompanying the band in concert at the time, their producer-manager Andrew Loog Oldham abandoned the original idea of having the album capture the Stones in a single live performance at London's Royal Albert Hall. Instead, he selected ten concert recordings from other sources alongside two older studio tracks, which were overdubbed with crowd noise to give the impression of an entirely live album – all the tracks were credited on the original LP to the Royal Albert Hall performance. The album takes its title from the Stones' 1965 UK-only live EP, whose own name had been inspired by the 1957 Slim Harpo recording "I've Got Love If You Want It".

The LP sold well, reaching the number six position on the American Billboard albums chart, although the Stones later disavowed the release. Critics of the album note the poor audibility of the band amid the audience noise, but appreciate its historical and documentary value as well as the intense, high-energy quality of the performances. Rare copies of the LP – pressed in limited quantities for the European market – became highly valued by record collectors. Got Live If You Want It! has been reissued twice by ABKCO Records, in 1986 on CD and in 2002 on SACD.
