3.0 out of 5 stars Great Performance - Annoying Film Production 13 Nov 2013
By Thomas Raven - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Make no mistake - the Stones have never sounded better. If you get this to listen to it, you won't be disappointed. But if you plan on watching it, look out. The ADD award goes to director Paul Dugdale. He seems to think we want a new shot every half second and that we're more interested in the goofballs in the crowd than we are in the Rolling Stones! I really wouldn't mind if all the obnoxious crowd footage were completely removed from this show. It's bad enough that we never really see the performance the way it should be seen - from the perspective of the audience. It's like we're there on stage BEHIND the performers, or off to the side. Very rarely do we see them from the front. It's a real shame that such an awesome event wasn't captured better! The quality of the images is awesome. Too bad the cameras were often pointed at the wrong things.

2.0 out of 5 stars Getting sea sick after only 1 song 4 Nov 2013
By Joecool - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Blu-ray
Had potential but I watched Start Me Up and this one suffers the same fate most new concerts do nowadays- over-editing. Maybe they think no one has any attention span anymore, but I'd prefer watching guitar solos or nonmoving camera shots and just enjoy the band and music. They waste so much money on production and end up with camera shots that never last more than a second or two, the cameras are constantly moving left and right up and down almost making me dizzy, and they jump from mile away shots to extreme close-ups. It's a shame because the picture is perfect, the sound rocks, and though the Stones are past their prime still rock out. I have to prefer the older concerts on crappy cameras because you can actually watch the band play and Mick sing for more than a second at a time. Please keep it simple next time and save the gimmicky stuff for bands that need it.

3.0 out of 5 stars You made a grown man cry! 14 Nov 2013
By Exile 72 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Blu-ray
Great show. Great sound. Really cool camera angles. Unbelievable video quality. However, the editing of this show is absolutely horrible. The camera angles cut every 2-3 seconds and it's extremely annoying and ruins the whole presentation.

My goldfish with it's 2 second attention span loved it! I have a normal human attention span and just couldn't get locked into the show, ever. Which is too bad because the quaility of everything is the best I've ever seen!

If the Sweet Summer Sun production and editing team ever read this, please release this film again editied to properly enjoy the brilliant camera work. We don't even get a complete shot of any instrumental solo, complete vocal line, etc. Why? I will purchase another copy if you issue a revised edit. Seriously!

5.0 out of 5 stars A MUST for serious Stones fans 16 Nov 2013
By CatRox - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I was 10 years old the first time I heard "Satisfaction"; riding in a Cadillac convertible, top down on the Gulf Coast of Florida with my older cousin at the wheel. It was also the first time I rode in a car that did 100MPH. Somehow I knew it didn't get much better!
I didn't get to see the Stones live until their Steel Wheels tour even though I'd dreamed about attending one of their concerts for years. Since then I've been to a show on every tour right up until the most recent show at Staples Center in Los Angeles on May 3 2013. I'm one of the crazies who not only splurged for a floor seat but also for one of only 600 leather jackets!
They're one of the very few bands I save up for so I can really treat myself.
I've been waiting and hoping that sooner or later they'd release one ( or more ) of the shows from the most recent tour on DVD/Blu-Ray. This set has everything I'd hoped for and more. It's a real treat for me to see the Hyde Park show from 1969; way before I ever thought I'd see them. And the book with the photos is very well done.
If you have a Rolling Stones fan on your holiday gift list they'd be over the moon to get this set!

5.0 out of 5 stars An Incredible Historical Document 12 Nov 2013
By M. Clancy - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Frankly, I can't believe the 3 star or worse ratings for this.

This is an outstanding document of "the greatest rock and roll band in the world." Beautiful presentation in a sturdy hard bound book, with the DVDs and bluray on one side of the book, and the CDs at the end of the book.

The book is fantastic, as it transitions from the 1969 performance in black and white pages, to full color, depicting the most recent performance.

The 1969 video of the Hyde Park performance is included. The video and sound of the recent performance is excellent. I'm not bothered by the camera angles. I absolutely love the way this is shot....it looks, and sounds superb.

I had the iTunes recording of the show released a few months back, but the fidelity on CD is an upgrade.

I am excited and grateful to get this kind of release from the great Rolling Stones.....in 2013.

While most bands born of the 60's are releasing reissues of reissues of their catalog (yes, I know the Stones do this too), to have a band like these guys still releasing anything current, is a major achievement in and of itself.

This release is evidence of a band that still plays great rock and roll. Mick Jagger defies logic. That a 70 year old man can perform, move about the stage, and sing at this level.....really makes no sense. I think he is as good now, or better, than he was 20-30 years ago.

I highly recommend this release.
