Editorial Reviews

Half a million people gathered on July 5th, 1969 in the open air in London's Hyde Park to pay homage to the group described as the GREATEST ROCK'N'ROLL BAND IN THE WORLD: THE ROLLING STONES. It was two days after the tragic death of guitarist BRIAN JONES and the atmosphere in Hyde Park was charged with emotion. One newspaper's headline dubbed the concert, "REQUIEM FOR A STONE". The Guardian called it " A MAJOR EVENT IN ENGLISH SOCIAL HISTORY." This DVD can easily be sold for up to $29.99 or more.

Customer Reviews

.Let's Party with the Stones!!
Chris Moriarty
The typical complaint about any music DVD not recorded with a 34 billion dollar budget to the sound snob is the fidelity doesn't meet the quality standard.
Craig Fenton
This is a documentary of a concert which happens to include much of the music, but also much of the atmosphere of the day and the performers.

I had always heard about this concert over the years, but most reviews panned it. Well, this reviewer gives it 4 stars. Considering the circumstances under which this show was performed (I direct those interested to read Stanley Booth's excellent book The True Adventures Of The Rolling Stones for all the gory details) it is not bad at all! Obviously under-rehearsed, the band struggle but manage some fireworks on some tunes, but do stink up the place on others. Some will complain about the out-of-tune guitars (see the Woodstock movie; everybody's guitars are out of tune. Same at Monterey Pop)but they hadn't played a concert in a long time. It's fascinating to watch them feel their way back and judging from the results less than 6 months later( The Ya-Ya's LP) their return to the top of the rock heap. Highly recommended!!! G2 the G

As the author of the Jefferson Airplane book "Take Me To A Circus Tent" and a former radio disc-jockey, I am often asked to write and or discuss various recordings from the 60's and 70's.

July 5, 1969 is one of the most historic days in rock and roll. The Stones concert in London's Hyde Park would pay homage to the late Brian Jones and usher in the new and extraordinary era of Mick Taylor (1969-74).

For those that have looked to fault every possible second of the event and judge the release on only the musical portion and not include "The Event" it is only right equal time is given to counter the unneccesary critisism the gig received.

The typical complaint about any music DVD not recorded with a 34 billion dollar budget to the sound snob is the fidelity doesn't meet the quality standard. In 1969 you were not dealing with digital technology and preserving the moment is worth more stars than how the mix is.

It has been discussed that newcomer Mick Taylor looks nervous. That is earth shattering news. He had less than 48 hours notice the permits were in place and they could perform. If your first show was in front of over 100,000 people and your bandmates lost somebody that they had often spent more time with than their own families, if there weren't butterflies he wouldn't have a heart or soul.

Keith's guitar is out of tune during "Satisfaction." There is a first. No musician has ever had this before. It is amazing that any of the Stones could get through the day knowing Brian's departure is now in a permanent sense.

The band isn't inspired. Then why did they play the longest version of "Sympathy For The Devil" (19:00) ever performed?

I received my copy of the Stones in the Park Friday night and it was great. I played it four times in a row and I was delighted by both the picture quality and the audio. My copy is Korean( I am Told ) and Iv'e been waiting 40 years for this one. The Stones are out of tune on "Satisfaction" and I didn't mind a bit, especially, after two or six Highballs.

If you've read my other reviews, you won't be surprised by this one.

This is a great concert DVD. It has most of my favorite old Stones songs, played with the instruments and musicians of the day. And that is important. You get to hear it as it was. The sound that made them famous, the sound that made them grow into the artists that they are today. Don't get me wrong, I love Darell Jones, Ron Wood and the lovely Lisa Fischer. They weren't there back then though. I only wish we could have heard Brian play his melotron.

The draw back is that it was filmed in 1969 technology also. The picture is a little fuzzy, just like our memories of 1969. The sound isn't 21st century quality either. But hey-- ITS THE STONES MAN!

They devoted this concert to Brian Jones who had just died two days earlier, even though they planned to do it without him previous to his death anyway. There was a rift in the band, largely because Brian Jones was spending more and more time shagging and drugging and almost never showing up for practice with the rest of the band. Real artists practice. Band members practice together. So the founding member got the boot.

Had he come out of his drug induced "funk" and not been murdered by the tradesman working around the house, I believe that Brian would have gone on to start another band that would be just as memorable as The Rolling Stones. Also he died, Mick, Keith and Charlie lived and the rest is history.

If you are a Stones fan, this is required viewing. BUY IT. I bought the Korean Import version, but it wasn't a big savings. What are you waiting for... Just buy a copy and watch it!

Having seen the Stones on their 1972 tour, I believe I have seen them at close if not the height of their performing career. Anything the Stones did live from 1969-1972 is of interest. So when I saw the availability of this concert I was immediately intrigued, especially that it was Mick Taylor's first concert with the band two days after Brian Jones' death. If you are looking for Gimme Shelter or Woodstock caliber recording - don't waste your money on this item. The editing is often frustrating - like watching faces in the crowd, tree branches or Mick Jagger dancing around the stage when Mick Taylor is throwing down some great slide guitar on Love In Vain. There's plenty of creative zoom lens crap and other frustrations. And yes, there are horribly out of tune guitars on Satisfaction. Despite all of the drawbacks, there is plenty to like. The seven plus minute rendition of Sympathy For The Devil has a great energy and shows the band transforming before your eyes into the great live act they became a year later. This show offers plenty of raw energy and authentic rock and roll, even though sometimes it's a little loose around the edges. There's not a lot of film footage of the Stones from the 1969-1972 era. This one is well worth the price of admission and will please any true Stones fan.
