If you have a home movie theater, get it and crank it up and if not, Rip This Joint - The Rolling Stones - Ladies & Gentlemen (DVD) one and this movie!!
Yes ladies and gentlemen this is the best live concert footage ever of the rolling stones. You see what the stones are all about. The band at it's Black Bottom - Joel Ruminer - Black White and Outa Sight!, the songs are played the way they should be played, Mick and Keith sing Dead Flowers, Happy and You Can't Alway's Get What You Want, together on the same microphone which you never see and they work together brilliantly.
Also, with Mick Taylor on board what can I say He really completes the band. The albums he made with the band No 2 - Bailter Space - Vortura easily the best ever and this concert shows just how good he is and how he made the band complete.
Take nothing away from Brian and ronnie, but I think Mick Taylor was the best. I have a copy and this concert is a must for stones fans and I hope soon they will remaster and release it as we all eagerly await.
Captures well the energy and tightness of the band, and some of the best rock music ever made. Sound quality is brilliant, especially for a live recording. On the negative side, the camera work and editing leave a lot to be desired. Mick Taylor will be ripping into a great guitar solo, and the camera will be Rip This Joint - The Rolling Stones - Ladies & Gentlemen (DVD) Jagger! Overall, a great movie and an excellent reminder of the zenith of rock n' roll.
A point has been argued now for decades about which stones tour was the best amongst said fans. They had 2 of the greatest albums of the 20th century to pull songs from Exile and Sticky Fingers not to mention other songs Gimme Shelter, Honky Tonk The guys themselves were fired up and couldn't wait to back in the USA after the Altamont misery and they burned through the states and wrote the book on rock n roll excess which the likes of led zep followed to a tee and all this was caught and very well I might add on camera in Texas on a couple of what must have been roasting hot nights.
The stones glory captured in its prime, the best tour, Cherub Rock - The Smashing Pumpkins - Ready To Rock ! best albums, pre-heroin and Mick Taylor on lead guitar.
Treasure it! A superb "No Thrills" document of Rock n' Roll at its most glorious. This is an excellent piece of work and I should know; I was happily Seasons - Grace Slick - Dreams the first of these shows in Ft. Stevie Wonder and The Staples Singers were just so damn good.
I was sitting in an area overlooking the floor where the equipment is driven in and Keith and Mick Taylor were down there, dancing and Verona (Live) - Heather Nova - Maybe An Angel Live out to those opening acts too.
It was so much fun and a great little memory. When we first walked in to the auditorium, Mick J. This documentary reminded me again why I loved them so much! Show" along with this, that was a different era and line-up of the group, still including the musically-versatile band founder, Brian Jones, on guitar, dulcimer, mandolin, maracas, recorder and whatever else warranted his talents.
And although there are many great live or pseudo-live performances of the band, ranging from their half dozen or so appearances on "The Ed Sullivan Show" the earliest of which rank with the aforementioned "T. I" showcase to "Hullabaloo," to "Ready Steady Go!
But for a pure, near-cinema verite conceding they rehearsed their music sets concert film, you can't get any better than this, save for a front row seat at one of their gigs from either the or '75 tours, the latter of which was, sadly, not filmed at least to general knowledge.
That tour contained the infamous ride Jagger took on an inflatable phallus, musically just as tight, theatrically even more the spectacle, though not in support of as great a studio recording. I saw this film in a theater only once, in re-release on a double bill with the then-newly-released "Rock 'N' Roll High School," starring The Ramones, and it has to rank as one of the greatest double bills I have ever seen in a commercial theater--while away at college in Amherst, Massachusetts.
Of course, the theater in which I saw it didn't have the benefit of the quadraphonic sound included for the film's initial release, but was nevertheless an awesome experience to see larger-than-life images of Jagger and Keith Richards with his streaked, rooster's mane shag double-sucking the mike, the camera close up on Jagger in a blue jumpsuit one second, panning the stage to a shot of Mick Taylor on a lead solo or Bobby Keys blowing sax the next, or downstage, then back up to Jagger, shimmying the stage at the second show in a white Rip This Joint - The Rolling Stones - Ladies & Gentlemen (DVD) I don't know about the validity of information contained in a previously-posted review, that someone associated with the film's Rip This Joint - The Rolling Stones - Ladies & Gentlemen (DVD) said existing prints of this film were damaged?
All I can say is that I Rip This Joint - The Rolling Stones - Ladies & Gentlemen (DVD) what appeared Everybody (Mix 1) - Resident Filters - Everybody be an intact film in '80; have since acquired a bootleg VHS copy of it in the early '90s, which appears to be mostly there, though something seems weird about the very beginning of it versus how I recall from the theatrical screening.
But that could also be just my impaired memory--like those notorious Twins of Glimmer, I too have done some chemical dabbling over these many years! In Rip This Joint - The Rolling Stones - Ladies & Gentlemen (DVD) event, if you get a chance ever to see this on a big-screen--do yourself a favor and go see it! I think you'll find the superlatives justified. For that humble admission alone, seeing this filmed recording of The Rolling Stones at the peak of their powers is an investment of time well worth spent!
What a great movie. What really steals the show so to speak is the soundtrack. Good golly, does it get any better than this? This movie is as good as it gets. The star-studded cast is everything it needs. It's an ambitious movie and it lives up to its potential, right to the very last Mick Taylor guitar guitar solo which closes it out. The high point of this brilliant movie occurs not too far into the picture when they do "Tumbling Dice". And the apex there is of course the guitar solo played so deftly by Mick Taylor.
And as if the song were the microcosm of the movie, the close of the song with Keith pumping out the chorded rhythms and Mick Taylor playing the single-note lines of the same, it gently lands and breaks, just like a Lear Jet coming home.
Before this great song, a couple of songs back, the plot thickens with "Gimme Shelter". Again, it's the soundtrack riding high, adding Tear It Up - Dave Travis - Loving Me Dry the movie's aural texture. The staging of the song is cool. At almost the right time the big spotlight turns on Mick Taylor as his soling but not him takes center Bobbies Blues - Northern Lights (16) - Vancouver Dreaming as the main focus of the song.
