This review is from: Rolling Stones - Under Review 1975-1983: The Ronnie Wood Years Part 1 (DVD)
Here's the next instalment of the 'Under Review' series looking at the career of the legendary Stones, this time we pick up right as guitar slinger Mick Taylor leaves the band and the boys recruit Ronnie Wood from The Faces. A close look is given to each album released by the band during this time period (Black & Blue, Some Girls, Emotional Rescue, Tatoo You, and Undercover of the Night), as well as the tours they undertook and the various goings on with the band. Featuring interviews with many key Stones afficionados and writers, some really good discussion is made about Mick Jaggers move to New York City and how the introduction of more urban sounds to Some Girls helped make that album the monster hit it was, but probably was a detriment to the follow-up Emotional Rescue. A close look is also taken at Wood, and how he was (or in a few cases wasn't) a good replacement for Taylor, but all seem to agree that he was a good fit for the band at this stage in their career. Keith Richards and his drug & legal problems are discussed, and as the story begins to draw to a close they start to get into the 'cold war' that eventually developed between Jagger & Richards by the mid-part of the decade, surely setting the stage for the next chapter in this DVD series. Various live clips are mixed in throughout the interview segments making this a very intriguing 90-minute watch for Rolling Stones fans.
