Originally released on CD in 1996 now reissued on "a records" Anton Newcombe's own record label, this is the first time on 180 gram vinyl, with one blue vinyl & one red vinyl.
The Brian Jonestown Massacre's obsession with the Rolling Stones continues unabated on the brilliant Take It From the Man! Where the group resurrected psychedelic-era excesses on the previous Their Satanic Majesties' Second Request, here they jump further back in time to the Stones' mid-'60s period, with even more superlative results. From the opening "Vacuum Boots" onward, Take It From the Man! is gritty, swaggering R&B-influenced rock, delivered with remarkable assurance and attitude; singer Anton Newcombe is half madman and half sha-man, and he commands each delirious moment with absolute mastery, emerging not so much a disciple of Mick Jagger but as a serious threat to the throne.
