Not watched this one as it was an un-requested (introductory?) disc
The Stones only look older. Their attitudes, their performances and their rock n roll is forever young. Really enjoyed this DVD.
Booooring! I am a big stones fan and I have seen other Scorcese Rockumentaries (Last Waltz and Bob Dylan's No Direction Home, which are both SUPERB), but this one was just a concert video with very little else. Only a few snippets of historical media shots (which all said the same thing... ie, do you think you will be doing this in 10 years time? Gosh... they still are... get over it). Like I said... BORING. Buddy Guy was awesome though - he DOMINATED the stage when he was on. (did i mention it was boring?)
I loved this. The energy, the excitement - it's still there for the Stones. We see the songs played in full, and the few flashback interviews don't go on forever. Fantastic!
If you are a music fan, you must see this, and if you are a Stones fan, you should probably buy this. It gets better and better as it goes along. The camera quality and angles are the best I have ever seen for a live concert and the sound (it takes a little while to adjust to) is very good too. Really enjoyed the old footage mixed in and the great songs and musicianship shows why the Stones have endured.
It's nice to know some insight of their band.
But honestly only first few songs and the end gets me going.
Not as good as expected. Enjoyable without being outstanding. Two or three of the standards were murdered and overplayed. It seemed like Keith was just about ready to fall asleep during a couple of the numbers.
I have been to a Rolling Stones concert and the singing on this doesn't sound like Mike Jagger. Maybe its been re-recorded?
Interesting to see he sorts out a play list so close to the start of the concert.
Good to see the early footage of them as young fellas. Laid back then and laid back now! This is for the fans.
As a big fan of the Rolling Stones in 1964, I was prepared to be disappointed with the "strolling bones" in this 2006 concert. But they were terrific. Who would've disagreed with the young Mick Jagger - seen in one of the snippets of interviews featured through the movie - when he said the Stones would be lucky to last 2 years? And here we are 42 years later and they are sounding better than ever. A must for all fans, young and old.
if you are a stones fan like me you will love this even if you are not a big fan I would still reccommend this one as it is quite interesting
I really loved this film. I've been a Stones fan for ages so it was good to sing along and get in the groove!! A great version of 'Lovin' Cup' with Jack White (him and Mick really seem to be enjoying themselves) and little Christina soups up 'Live With Me'. The tempo is fast and there are great mix early and later songs. Snippets of old interviews centre on the theme of how long will the band last which adds irony and humour. Really great, I could watch it again and again!
