Amidst this week's Beatlesmania was the announcement that The Rolling Stones will release a deluxe version of the landmark live album Get Yer Ya-Ya's Out, which includes five bonus tracks plus a whole disc of performances by openers B.B. King and Ike & Tina Turner. Also included is a 56-page booklet and a DVD of footage shot by the Maysles brothers (presumably outtakes from Gimme Shelter). Due Nov. 3.
If that wasn't enough, the mass market edition of Ethan Russell's Let It Bleed book comes out a day later. As an owner of the exorbitantly expensive deluxe edition, I can tell you that Russell's photos from the 1969 tour are one of the best collections outside of Dominque Tarle's legendary photos from the Exile sessions.
In the meantime, Stones fans still await the announcement for the deluxe edition of Exile On Main Street, which for the moment is strangely out of print in its most recent incarnations.
