Until I moved to Los Angeles in 1979 I wasn't anywhere near a venue the Stones performed at so for me this is a real treat.
Granted some shots may seem a bit blurry and dark but this concert wasn't "lit" for video. This is how the lighting director for this concert did the show. As a retired LD let me say the video looks freakin' great considering the source material they had to work from. This is before VariLites and lasers...the state-of-the-art lighting at the time were Par-Cans. Also before shows were specifically lit for video. Concert and video lighting are melding now but back then they were completely different.
My hubby is the sound guy in the family and he thinks the sound on this is excellent. The audio options are a bonus and how they pulled them all off is beyond me. The best option for me is the DTS sound through my Blu-Ray player, Yamaha home theater receiver and Polk speakers.
This is RAW Stones at their best during the "Goats Head Soup" era, and when Ronnie Wood first joined the band. Mick's energy and stage presence show why he's the best front man in the history of rock. The only word of caution is some tunes may contain language not suitable for younger audiences ( hello Star Star ).
I know it's only rock 'n roll but I LIKE IT!!!!
Had to come back to say RIP Bobby Keys - you will not be forgotten - December 2,2014
We lost another long-time Stones collaborator today - RIP Ian McLagan - December 3, 2014
They stripped down the music, with an adrenaline, whiskey and coke fueled sexiness, that hadn't yet seen any self-reflective solo albums or autobiographies. There were no phone cameras, not even jumbo video screens. There were no online voting for which song to play gimmicks, or B-stages, or "Tongue-pits" yet. And while all those things are great now, it's a different time, so watch this show in context, and dig it!
In 1975, by bringing Ron Wood into the band, they became more raw and spontaneous, and had alot more fun. I saw them a few days later (or was it earlier) in Fort Collins, where Elton John famously got up onstage with them, but stayed too long (3 songs), and was pointed to the exit - to the great pleasure of the 60,000 fans. It was a crazy spontaneous tour, every bit as great as the 1972, or 69 tours. And also as great as Some Gilrs 78, No Security, Bridges to Babylon, or the many other tours.
As great as their songs and videos are at home, the Stones are 10 times more impactful to see in person. The way they tune-in to every crowd, every show, every song is something that must be felt to understand. They operate on a visceral level. They do not perform the songs like the record the channel them fresh each time. They have always had those qualities, and always will... it became a part of their DNA in the 60's, and is part of each player, including all the sidemen and women now.
If you haven't seen them, still go see them. Even go see Lisa Fisher or Tim Reis, or Charlie watts, or Bill Wyman and you will see what i mean.

I attended one of the performances at the Forum and it was fantastic. I don't feel that this film captures the power of the monstrous mechanical stage or the marvelous sound of... Read morePublished 1 month ago by R. Lehrer
Very bad camera work. The camera shots were mostly taken from the back. No close ups. I watched a full 10 minutes before I even saw Ron Wood, and Charlie? Didn't see him. Read morePublished 1 month ago by HZ
