4.0 out of 5 stars One Day in the Park 15 Jun 2002
Format:DVD
July 5-th 1969 history on the strings was made when the Rolling Stones performed a free concert in Hyde Park in front of half a million people. This concert criminally ignored on DVD since now is featured here, alas in a not so happy technical presentation. Provided with a mono soundtrack and with somehow bluish pictures, still this remains quite a feast for the fans. As Mick said at one moment " A concert is not just to hear the music as it really is that's for the studio to do..." those expected crystal clear strains and video sharp like pictures should search elsewhere. There are eight live songs: Midnight Rambler, Satisfaction, I'm Free, I'm Yours She's Mine, Jumping Jack Flash, Honky Tonk Woman, Love in Vain and Sympathy for the Devil. Although not all are at 451 Fahrenheit (Satisfaction is sadly one of the letdowns) still image and music combined are worth the money and the forbidden fruit Sympathy.... is sang with the help of an African band in an unforgettable Voodoo like ceremony. Hells Angels are also seen there but they are more like Mengele's Angels judging from their SS uniforms and insignias. In total opposition with their Californian cousins at Altamont Concert (a few months later) they were harmful here, their age and fashion style reminding more of the lost children of Mad Max III movie than Easy Rider.
Another surprise is Paul McCartney seen in the crowd for a couple of seconds during end credits. In all not being an ordinary concert but " In Memoriam " one (Brian Jones being found dead two days before, in his swimming pool) this DVD will revive history for those not so fortunate to live it then.

5.0 out of 5 stars a very English afternoon 4 Mar 2004
By clio
Format:DVD
Four and a half stars, really, for this very nice little film that's more a document of an event than of the concert that was the centerpeice of that event.
The sound is mono, which might bother some of you newfangled types, but it's fine with me. In _According to the Stones_ Keith Richards states that in terms of sound, this was one of their most abysmal shows ever. Which is a totally different issue than how well they're playing, mind you, but be aware that the sound on this dvd is pretty ... hm, authentic-sounding, shall we say. The groovy 60s-style camera "effects" get a little embarrassing a few times, and the camera's fixation with Mick Jagger is unfortunate - hello, there's a whole band at work up there, could we have some footage of them too please?!
But all in all it's a warm, charming and fascinating document of a very English afternoon that the Stones' free concert provided the excuse for, and of the Stones' gallant way of honouring Brian Jones.

2.0 out of 5 stars Historic concert, poor performance and DVD 7 Jun 2010
Format:DVD
The '69 Hyde Park concert is historic for several reasons: it was the first one after Brian Jones death and the debut of Mick Taylor with the Stones, and over 250.000 fans assisted (some sources even talk about 500.000). However, it wasn't a good show: the band didn't play well, the guitars were out of tune and most songs were still taking shape. The Stones hadn't played live for years, so the gig was a warm-up for the tour that was about to come (and excellently documented in The Rolling Stones - Gimme Shelter [DVD] [1970]).

The original set list of the Stones show was as follows:
1-Eulogy for Brian Jones (a Shelley poem read by Mick Jagger, in his infamous Marianne Faithfull dress)
2-I'm Yours, She's Mine (a raw rendition of the Johnny Winter number)
3- Jumpin Jack Flash
4- No Expectations
5- Mercy, Mercy
6- Stray Cat Blues
7- I'm Free
8- Down Home Girl
9- Love in Vain
10- Loving Cup (debut of a song that wouldn't be officially released until 1972)
11- Midnight Rambler
12- Satisfaction
13- Honky Tonk Woman
14- Street Fighting Man
15- Sympathy for the Devil (the highlight of the show)

The concert was filmed by Granada Television and shown in British television, and that footage is what you can find in this DVD. The film skips some songs and doesn't follows a chronological order. It includes the eulogy, 'Midnight Rambler', 'Satisfaction', 'I'm Free', 'I'm Yours', 'JJF', 'HTW', 'Love in Vain' and 'SFTD', and bits of an interview with Jagger.

The image is quite poor, very grainy, and there isn't any extra stuff worth of mention. For die hard fans only.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good but flawed... 25 Feb 2005
Format:DVD
I was very tempted to rate this higher (and in some ways I feel I'm being a bit too 'picky') but this DVD does contain several notable flaws.
Ok, here goes:
Yes, it's great that this DVD is available to all the Rolling Stones fans out there and the price is certainly reasonable. My main 'beef' with it though is the fact that despite the packaging boasting about how the picture has been 'remastered' the quality (and I've watched this on several systems) is very poor - grainy; washed out...it's just drab. Actually, the same applies to the sound quality.
Secondly, there are no extras whatsoever which, I assume, relates to the bargain price but it would have been nice to contain at least something. Finally, this only contains about 70% of the actual set-list that the Stones played at Hyde Park. Some great songs are missing but, fortunately, what they've kept here is gold - especially 'Honky Tonk Woman' and 'I'm Free'. For the price and entertainment value I'd recommend this very, very highly for Stones fans but it's just a bit of a shoddy package all-round.
