What a timely performance to release on DVD. What with the Stones currently on tour and making themselves relevant yet again, this DVD becomes a touch stone for fans and students of rock'n roll everywhere. It might be easy to forget that the Stones chartered the original pirate ship that is modern Rock n' Roll. All the original attitude, bluster, sound and fury has not been diminished after all the years. On those occasions when the Stones choose to set sail, reviews often dwell on the tarnished treasures they bring to the stage. Gold is gold, you don't need to polish it to establish it's value. It just is. The Stones are the gold standard for modern Rock n' Roll. For that matter, they are also the gold standard for modern Rock n' Roll performance. Stadium, hall or club, the Rolling Stones bring more precious treasure to share than any other band. Their catalogue of songs is vast and impressive . Whatever album or show you identify as the pinnacle of their essence, each is a voyage unlike any other. The sum of the parts, produce a whole that is still the best in all of Rock n' Roll.
Obviously, Keith Richards is a large part of the whole that is the Rolling Stones. Some say he is the Rolling Stones. This DVD proves just how unique and gifted a performer/writer Keith is. Without the Stones show and Mick beside him, Keith just tears into HIS music and almost makes you forget he is a part of the Rolling Stones. Each song stands on it's own. Sure, the Stone's riffs are there but they're Keith's riffs. The Chuck Berry chords, the R & B melodies, the reggae groove, the soulful horn of Bobby Keys, all this adds up. You watch this DVD and cannot help but feel moved by Keith's love of the the music. It shows in his performance. He's not self-conscious or stage struck.

When Keith released his first solo album, Talk is Cheap (1988), critics said that it was the best Rolling Stones record in 17 years. It was considered the best record since Exile on Main Street.
This was probably an exaggeration since both Some Girls (1978) and Tatto You (1981) were extraordinary records. But Talk is Cheap was an important album. It was the first solo album by Keith Richards.
After Keith released Talk is Cheap, he went on tour with his new band, The X-Pensive Winos--Waddy Watchel, Sarah Dash, Steve Jordan, and Ivan Neville.
The tour was very successful. It won an award for the best tour in small theaters. And it won the attention of many bootleggers. Keith decided to produce a live record just to stop the circulation of bootlegs. That's why the Live at the Palladium was made.
The concert was indeed a very good one. Keith does some of his best singing ever - I mean it !- and the band is very energetic. Keith's song set is made up mostly by the songs from his solo album- You shouldn't take it so hard, How I wish, Make no mistake, and so on.
There are also an soulful rendition of Time is on my side (sang by Sarah Dash), Too Rude (that Keith recorded the previous year with the Stones for the album Dirty Work), Happy (a vintage Keith from Exile on Main Street) and Connections.
It's really a nice concert and it's really nice to watch.

Great performance, tight band, great sound, great selection of songs!!! The picture is a bit grainy, but it doesn't distract from the enjoyment, because the colors are otherwise bright - it looks like it was meant to be grainy. It's great to see JUST Keith without Parody of Himself Mick distracting from the real star of the show! Keith's in fine voice, and looks his always-cool-self. Fans of Keith, this is a GREAT DVD!!! Great chance to view our hero at his best! Only complaint: wish it were longer!!

This is a classic performance by the heart and soul of the Rolling Stones, Keith Richards, during one of his "solo" efforts as a result of his ongoing family fued with Mick Opening with a shot of the fabled Hollywood Paladium under neon lights, the film invites you to come into the world of Keith Richards on stage.The concert footage begins with a look at he some of the rituals beforehand and lends to the grittiness of the performance. The long time rocker then appears on stage with his look of death walking , goining through the motions that only years of Rock n Roll can yield. This is for fans of Keith as leader, in his subdued manner pirate swagger as opposed to Mick prancing about. The comparatively stoic Keith lets his guitar licks do the talking but sings in his inimitable raspy vioice that has smoked one too many cigarretes and downed too many vodkas. Richards is a throw back, following the tradition that inspired his work in the form of American bluesmen like Muddy Waters he continues to rock to this day . Whether he is embracing his guitar like a lover or holding it like a weapon, as he slays the audience, there is no doubt that he loves his music. His singing is secondary but this fits his profile perfectly; his everlasting youth is fueled by the audience as a tonic. The hour long tape features twelve songs, including his most known numbers like "Take it so hard ," Time is on My side," and the Stones favorite "Happy." The X-pensive Winos are a work of art, a fine collection of musical pirates collecting booty in the form of fans adulation along the tour. I happened to catch Keith on this solo tour and came away even more impressed with his salt of the earth qualities and musical talents.Read more ›
