Fans of the awesome ya yas album should definitely acquaint themselves with the Sticky Fingers Super Deluxe edition, with a lot of live recordings from the era, it's a real gem

How many of you out there remember the original "Sticky Fingers" album cover with an actual zipper on the jeans??

I don't think they're very rare. I still have mine.
I'm pretty sure I still have my original "Get Your Ya Yas out" album too.

I have a Rambler story, College 1976

OK, my first year, 3 of from the same HS in VA, wound up going to the same College in Erie, PA (another story )

On school holidays, we actually paid a Senior, also from No.VA, Bruce, who had a beat up, but functional '60's Rambler to drive us back to our VA homes ( then back to Erie, after breaks).

It was an 8 hour, freezing-*ss trip in Winter, and the passenger front door latch did not work. Door would not close.

I'm 6'5", so I always got to sit up front- holding/pulling a rope, attached to the door tight, to keep door from opening- but worth the $15 ( each ) trip home!

* miss those days, even miss Erie!

My favorite song from the ya ya's concert, Street Fighting Man. They're on fire. I crank this one up and focus on Kieth's chording while all the other explode around him

Ya Yas is the Ur-text of my guitar playing life - always has been, always will be.

At our first 'gig', a high school battle of the bands in the mid-70s, we were following a band with a horn section doing Chicago covers (with lots of their family/friends in the crowd). We were scruffy, terrified, bad boys and spent an eternity tuning up when we took the stage. But eventually I stepped up to the mic, shouted "Charlie's good t'night", ripped into Honky Tonk Women and blew the roof off.

It's been aces ever since - in memory at least.

Just seeing Sister Morphine listed makes me want to pick up my acoustic and play it. I only wish I could play the Ry Cooder slide bits. I didn’t realize that Marianne Faithful co-wrote it and released it 2 years before the Stones. Great song!

Me! It was so cool. Almost as cool as the man on fire cover of Wish You Were Here.

As for Rambler, it’s a fun song to play but I hate the subject matter!

One of the greatest live rock recordings, from the peak period of the Stones' output. The quality declined, in the post-Taylor era, IMO- but no other rock band had such a run of wonderful records, comparable with their output, between '67 and '76.

A powerful gateway drug, introducing many of us kids to the Blues.:cool:
