The Rolling Stones: Havana Moon Blu-ray
The Rolling Stones Havana Moon is presented on Blu-ray courtesy of Eagle Vision, an imprint of Eagle Rock Entertainment, and Universal Music Group with an AVC encoded 1080i transfer in 2.40:1. This is a great looking transfer for the most part, one that exploits the Havana locations in some evocative if occasionally disturbing looks at the island. While the concert is outdoor at night, the relatively normal looking stage lighting keeps the palette fresh and natural looking, and there's little if any problem with posterizing or banding.
The Rolling Stones Havana Moon features excellent sounding LPCM 2.0 and DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 tracks. The surround tracks significantly opens up the midrange and lower frequencies, somewhat burying Mick's vocals in the process. There's a nice depth and breadth to the surround track, with both the audience noises and the general outdoor ambience lending a nice lifelike feel to the sonics. Fidelity is excellent, and while there are occasional slight prioritization issues, most fans should be very well pleased with the sound of this release.

Now more about the right and wrong. I'll make a long list of the right and a short list of the wrong.
1. Crowd shots are amazing. Hard to put into words, really.
2. Track listing is great. All are the usual War Horses but all presented really well. My new favorite is "Out of Control." It features a very cool solo by Keith. The "duet" of Ron and Keith doing "You Got the Silver" is perfect. "Midnight Rambler" is very well done but almost turns into a hot mess mid-song. It's neat to watch the cues between band members on this track. Both spoken and unspoken to mark the many transitions in this tune. "Sympathy for the Devil" features an absolutely awesome big screen presentation behind the stage.
3. Sound and video quality are perfect. And thankfully the editing between camera angles is relatively normally paced. (see my previous reviews about annoying rapid-fire editing).
4. Mick's vocals are great (getting better?) and Charlie has added some cymbals to his kit (I think).
1. Bonus tracks - why not just keep them in the order of the concert? For some reason, the bonus tracks were taken out of the full length video and added as "bonus track." Absolutely dumb.
All that being said, I have to give this release 5 stars. It's one of the best documents of a contemporary Stones' show I've seen in a long while.
The music itself? Mostly familiar songs were performed well. The musicians: The Stones (Jagger, Richards, Watts, Wood); their partners (Jones, Leavell, Denson, Ries, Clifford, Fowler, Allen, the Havana Choir). The different pieces meshed well.
Song list for the DVD included a lot of standards--such as Jumpin' Jack Flash, It's Only Rock n' Roll, Honky Tonk Women, Midnight Rambler, Gimme Shelter, Sympathy for the Devil, Brown Sugar, and Satisfaction. Sometimes I wonder how the band can seem so animated. The four Stones (although I wonder if Darryl Jones shouldn't be seen as Bill Wyman's successor rather than someone on contract) were clearly enjoying the experience and investing a great deal of energy in the performance.
The DVD version of the concert begins with an energetic Jumpin' Jack Flash (has anyone compiled how many times the group has played this song?). I find it interesting as the first "cowbell" notes are played from Honky Tonk Women how energetic the audience gets. Midnight Rambler was really cool. The guitar breakout was chaotically exciting! Sympathy for the Devil was dark, as it should be. Brown Sugar was energetic--and I was impressed that so many in the audience joined in on the four oohs and yeahs. Of course, the concert ended with Satisfaction, a satisfactory version!
There are four bonus tracks for the DVD. Why weren't they integrated into the concert? Got me.
The CD works, too. But I love the visuals and the views of the audience (lots of audience shorts) from the DVD.
