5.0 out of 5 stars It's More Than Rock and Roll!, January 7, 2004
This review is from: The Rolling Stones - Four Flicks (DVD)
I got this DVD set for Christmas- it's ironic that Santa rewards the "good" with rock and roll's favourite "bad boys!"
The DVD packaging and concept is great- something you can spend at least 2 weeks enjoying! Yes, the mix of the guitar solos sound a little muddy at times (especially Keith's). But if you're a diehard fan of the Stones, you'll enjoy this collection of concert highlights from the Stones' 2002/2003 Tour.
Disk One features interviews from the Stones, 4 live tracks including "Beast of Burden" and "I Can't Turn You Loose", 2 new studio tracks ("Extreme Western Grip" and "Well Well")and a 20 minute tour history summary of them (it's interesting to see the Stones with Rush as both bands played at a benefit concert in Toronto). Select-a-Stone is entertaining, as it allows you to watch each individual Stone at close up on "Monkey Man" and "Angie" (which can be found on Disk Three).
Disk Two showcases the Stones at Madison Square Garden, NY. Highlights include "Midnight Rambler," "You Got Me Rocking," "Can't You Hear Me Knocking" and Sheryl Crow dueting with Mick on "Honkey Tonk Women." Also, check out the band commentaries on this three disk (and Disks Three and Four) and the section with Sheryl Crow.
Disk Three has the Stones playing at Twickenham Stadium, London. Highlights inlcude "Slipping Away," "Rocks Off," "WIld Horses" and "Paint It Black" (with Woody playing Brian's original sitar part), "You Can't Always Get What You Want." This disk (along with Disk Four) has a Backstage Pass section, which allows you to see the people behind the scenes getting Keith or Woody's guitars or change costumes. Also, there's a section with Angus and Malcom Young jamming with the Stones onstage (it's too bad they didn't show the whole song!).
Disk Four (at Olympia Theatre, Paris) is my personal favourite. It features a lot of songs rarely performed live "Dance (Part 1)," "Before They Make Me Run," "No Expectations," "Stray Cat Blues," "Everybody Needs Somebody to Love" (watch the extra with the Rev. Solomon Burke) and an impressive cover of the O'Jays' "Love Train." Keith does a reading of Hoagy Carmichael's "The Nearness of You" and Charlie cracks a joke after Mick's introduced the band, much to the audience's amusement!
It's more than rock and roll- it's the World's Greatest Rock and Roll Band! And you'll like it, like it, yes you will!
