Recently, in reviewing Jean Luc- Godard's 1968 "Sympathy For The Devil", an experimental film documentary montage that featured the creation of one of the Rolling Stone's most well-know songs I noted that while I was more than happy to see The Stones creative process on that work I did not need to spend an hour and one half to do so. This had to do more with Luc-Godard's pretensions and propaganda needs that with that of The Rolling Stones. Here, in the film documentary under review, we are treated to an infinitely more noteworthy and worthwhile introduction to The Stones' creative process at its height and their place in the cultural, or rather counter-cultural, history of the 1960's. Without the hubris.

One should note the time frame of this exposition, 1967-69, that is important both for the period of The Stones creative outburst and their connection with the various cultural events that defined the late 1960's. A little time here is spent by the "talking heads" British music critics, who also covered The Stones up close during this period and that drive the narrative of this film, on the early Stones and their efforts like "Satisfaction" and "Ruby Tuesday" as they attempted to compete song for song with the Beatles. However, the bulk of the time is spent discussing the latter period when The Stones went off to explore their own musical capacities. This period includes their efforts on " Their Satanic Majesties" (an album that while it has some historical value as acid rock is virtually unlistenable, at least to this reviewer, these days), "Between The Buttons" (a transitional album) and then on to the classic `Beggar's Banquet". "Beggar's Banquet" is arguably the equivalent in the Stones discographic pantheon of Elvis Presley's 1956 "Elvis" to his.
