Got LIVE If You Want It! is the first live album by British rock band The Rolling Stones. It was released in the US in late 1966. It was also released as Have You Seen Your Mother LIVE! on Decca in England but for export only; it was not released in the UK under this alternate title.

History[edit]

At the time, it was not released officially in the UK; instead, the British market had the 1965 EP release Got Live If You Want It!, from which the album's name derived (a different mix of "I'm Alright" appeared on this EP.) The album had been compiled as a result of a contractual obligation with US distributor London Records, and the band themselves were not happy with it. They consequently disowned it, arguing that Get Yer Ya-Yas Out! The Rolling Stones in Concert (1970) was their true live album debut.

The performances captured for Got Live If You Want It reportedly occurred on 1 and 7 October 1966, in Newcastle upon Tyne and Bristol while on their last UK tour for three years, despite the album's assertion that the recording hailed from the Royal Albert Hall.

The album was issued in December, as the group were nearing the end of Between the Buttons' sessions. It reached No. 6 in the US in early 1967 and went gold. Decca Records UK released the LP as Have You Seen Your Mother Live! for import purposes, while King Records Japan released the same LP under the title Hits LIVE.

In August 2002 Got Live If You Want It! was reissued in a new remastered CD and SACD digipak by ABKCO Records, for all markets.
