It's said - and I accept it may be an urban legend - that the only reason
Get your ya ya's out is any good is because Decca (the Stones' UK label)
heard the album, and were so appalled at how shitty they sounded that it was
virtually re recorded in the studio, with an invited "audience" to give it
that live sound.

And as for 3 best live albums of all time, really it's only subjective
opinions but I'd say that Thin Lizzy's Live and Dangerous or James Brown at
the Apollo stand higher in the rankings than ever Get your Ya Ya's out
