This video captures that magic, and you will walk away amazed at just how incredible this band was in that era.

The video is less than perfect as is the sound.

While this dvd has some audio/visual technical limitations based on when it was recorded (1972) it doesn't take away from the fact that it captures the band at their live peak. Before the band morphed into a "greatest hits live revue" after the 1989-90 Steel Wheels tour, they were the absolute best live rock & roll band ever. This video captures that magic, and you will walk away amazed at just how incredible this band was in that era.

As you would expect, too much of the time the camera is focused on Mick Jagger (most irritatingly, during the start of Happy when Keith steps up to the mic and the camera zooms in on Jagger dancing in front of Charlie instead of zooming in on Keith for some reason!). Not nearly as crazy as the 99% of the camera time Jagger gets in Shine A Light, but irritating nonetheless.

Still, when you see and hear the band plow through a great set list, and get to see Mick Taylor and Keith play off one another, and watch Charlie and Bill hold the rhythm together you will be amazed. This video is equal to the concert footage at MSG featured in Gimme Shelter -- only this time you get to see a whole set instead of a song or two. Get this dvd -- you'll be glad you did.

The only time that I previously viewed this film was at "midnight movies" in the mid-'70s. Taylor's and Richards' guitars compliment each other like no Stones lineup before or since. From my perspective, the setlist includes their best songs from their best albums (Beggar's Banquet, Let It Bleed, Sticky Fingers and Exile on Main Street). "Midnight Rambler" is my favorite song of all time, and the performance of it on this DVD is the best ever filmed. The rhythm section cooks. I came away with increased respect for Wyman and Watts after viewing this movie. The Dick Cavett Show extra is a nice bonus. I remember enjoying seeing that episode in the summer of '72. This is a no-nonsense concert DVD that is essential for the serious collector of Rolling Stones recordings.

We've been spoiled with the digital revolution and this movie can use a digital update, but the performance is so darn good, it really doesn't matter. It's ALL music here, no back story like "Gimme Shelter". The 1972 shows were amongst this band's best and to see secret weapon Mick Taylor and hear him in all his glory is rewarding--the band may have never played better than when he was with them. Make no mistake, though, this is the Glimmer Twins show--the cameras are on them 90% of the time--and more specifically Mick. Keith is high (no pun intended, well, maybe a little pun) energy throughout and the interaction he has with Mick makes one a little nostalgic in light of their coldness and distance towards each other over the last few tours. However, Mick Jagger is the one your eyes and the camera follow and deservedly so--he is a whirling dervish of energy and rocks as hard here as anyone ever has. The Dick Cavett show extras are just icing on the cake. This movie is not just for Stones fans (in hwich case it is a must) but for all fans of rock.

Saw the Stones for the first time on June 24, 1966 in Lynn, Mass. at the Manning Bowl. The next 3 times at the Boston Garden 69,72,and 75. Ladies and Gentleman was the 1972 tour. The video is less than perfect as is the sound. The concert was phenomenal and this DVD takes me back every time I see it. The interaction between Jagger and Richards is unbelievable. You can really see how Jagger watches Keith to get his cues as to how Richards is taking the song. No back up singers no prancing honky tonk girls just the Stones with old friend Nicky Hopkins on piano with newcomers Jim Price on trumpet and Bobby Keys on sax. This was the band for Exile On Mainstreet. I believe this film was from 2 shows in Texas and there is no bs like on the Scorsese film. Just music as it happened, a small amount of chitchat from Mick on 2 or 3 occasions, but this is showing what the Stones were all about, the best band on stage with the best rock music of any time. I have this on my ipad, not easy to do because of the format, had an apple expert actually write or improve an existing app so I could get it there and Palladium showed it on tv, with commercials unfortunately, and of course this DVD. If you want to see what the Stones were all about or want to remember buy this dvd.

This is the Stones tour that would become the stuff of lore. The '72 RSTP (Rolling Stones Touring Party) was the time they traveled by jet and was the last time Mick Taylor would be featured guitarist. In many ways it was probably the last time the stones really toured while debuting much anticipated music. The set is heavy on the classics (Satiisfaction, Sympathy, Brown Sugar) while also falling back on the great blues classic (Love in Vain) and new Exile on Main Street jams (Tumblin' Dice, Rip This Joint, etc).

There are only three downsides to this film
-It was shot in the old concert documentary style where cameras were set up to focus on a part of the stage, so at times you see Mick until he steps out of the picture, or just a portion of a Keith jamming on rhythm.
-It is (as consistent with Stones live show videos) heavy on the post production... so lots of overdubs and even mixing audio and video with different shows. It doesn't hurt the final product too much except that it isn't a truly authentic live show.
-Like most shows of the time it's video and audio quality leave much to be desired. In 2010 they released a remastered version which did great justice to the performance. Frankly I'd recommend the digitally remastered version.
