Out today (February 10th) is the latest Rolling Stones archival release, titled GRRR Live! The set, which gets its name from the band’s 2012 career-spanning compilation GRRR!, was recorded on December 15th, 2012 during the band’s “50 And Counting” tour stop at Newark, New Jersey’s Prudential Center. The set features guest spots by Bruce Springsteen on “Tumbling Dice,” Guy Clark, Jr. and John Mayer on “Going Down,” the Black Keys on Bo Diddley‘s “Who Do You Love?,” and Lady Gaga duetting with Mick Jagger on “Gimme Shelter.”

As he did every night on the road, former Stones guitarist Mick Taylor joined the band for an incendiary take on their 1969 classic, “Midnight Rambler.” The set, which was originally available on pay-per-view, is available now as a pre-order.

According to the announcement, “Since its original airing on pay-per-view in 2012, the concert has been re-edited and the audio has been remixed. Three songs from the December 13th show — also in Newark — will be available as bonus features on the DVD and Blu-ray: ‘Respectable’ with John Mayer, ‘Around And Around,’ and ‘Gimme Shelter.'”

Mick Jagger explained that a lot of times in rock, people tend to romanticize the relationships between bandmembers: “I don’t feel like a family, it’s like a. . . The great difference is that people confuse families and gangs. A gang is a rather immature group, whereas a family is rather mature group. And you have to make the transference from being in a gang to being in a family. The gang never likes the fact that you have a family — and vice versa; the family never likes the fact that you have a gang. It’s hard in life to have to balance that. But definitely, the Rolling Stones is not a family — it’s a gang.”
