1. DVD - The notes contained in this release state that this concert video is from Saturday July 12th, 1975. I can only assume that information to be accurate. It's amazing to finally see a Stones concert from this period in decent video quality. It does suffer a little from age and definitely not suitable for today's HD. If this comes out on Blu-ray, I wouldn't buy it because of this. However, the actual performance is great. It's fun to see the fashion from the period (bell-bottoms, etc) and the corded guitars and mics.
I didn't like the quick camera editing in some spots. Especially the much too often camera angle from behind the stage featuring Ollie Brown's backside. Weird.
2. CD - A different show from the DVD! It is however the same audio that has been available on official download for a few years now. Oddly, the notes on the packaging make no mention of this difference. If not paying attention, one would think the audio cd features the same show as the DVD. The CD audio is from Sunday July 13th, 1975 - the last date at the L.A. Forum that year. There's a few spoken word cues from Mick that verify this if you listen carefully while he speaks between songs ("who went to church today," etc).
All that being said, the set list is identical from both shows. I prefer the audio from the CD. Musically it's better IMO and features some pretty funny banter from Jagger which helps make this package a "5 star" must have for all Stones fans.
Now to the CD's. These are from a different night, and the show (for a post-Taylor show) is OUTSTANDING. Wood's play is mostly excellent, the band in general is much tighter and the show was recorded much better. The balance is excellent, as is the powerful sound. Midnight Rambler will just leave you floored, as will several others.
Buy it for the concert on the CD's! But take the time to enjoy the DVD too.
Of the more than a dozen Stones concerts I've attended over the years, this one was the best, by far. I had the good luck of being friends with one of the Stones US lawyers, so most of the concerts I went to included great comp seats and backstage passes. The '75 concert wasn't one of them, and we bought scalped tickets, but like I said, it was the best. The quality of the video is much better than expected, as is the sound.
The one very slight disappointment I have is that the DVD producers didn't include what happened before the Stones stage opened, not did they show the truly amazing way the Forum was decorated, with huge silk-like banners hanging from the ceiling, and a cone of the same material covering the closed-petal stage. About 45 minutes before the show opened, a long conga line with drummers formed in the hall, winding its way through the aisles and doors, eventually following a gold Chinese dragon. The initially disjointed drumming slowly merged into a single, vaguely familiar beat. At that point, we noticed that the beat was joined by Charlie Watts onstage, growing louder as the drummers' sounds subsided, and the silk cone raised, two or three of The Boys climbed to the tops of the individual petals, and that merged into the first tune. Dramatic as hell! Maybe a second edition of this DVD will include those moments.
How good was it? This will give you a hint.Read more ›
