I am a Pink Floyd fan by heart but the weekend before I went to Berlin to see The Wall, I travelled to Cardiff Arms Park. Here I witnessed "THE GREATEST ROCK N ROLL BAND IN THE WORLD" prove to me that live no one but no one can match them (and I've seen Floyd three times).
Unfortunatly, the Cardiff gig was not filmed but the footage here still matches what I saw, 100% magic. The venues of these shows include London and Madrid. The stage was massive, it needed to be to contain Kieth, Mick, Ronnie and Charlie. (Bill could have stood on a soapbox for all of his movements - but that's just Bill). The lights, the dry ice and effects were superb too.
Just the year before, the excellent compilation album Hot Rocks was released which was a real greatest hits package (for a non-dedicated fan like me anyway) and Steel Wheels album also. This DVD is a filmed tour of both albums.
Most of the classics are here and some new ones (for 1990). Sad, Sad, Sad really grabbed me as I had not heard it before but Sympathy For The Devil was the track I wanted to hear and they played it and it blow me away!
Because I saw one of the shows of this tour I guess I could have some bias towards this DVD. However, let's be fair, Bridges To Babylon (1998) concert DVD is 30 minutes longer and is again so cool (even without Bill) and features a lot of the same tracks but my honest opinion is a simple one: get both.
If you are like me then you will appriciate that The Stones are not just a 60's band wheeled out every few years for an airing, but really do have a meaning in the modern music scene.Read more ›
