5.0 out of 5 stars Well I think it's great, 21 Jan. 2010
I always find it weird the comments that the rock and roll circus gets. I remember being about 16 and it was boxing day and this came on BBC2 at about midnight. I watched it and it was like a revalation, and to this day it is by a mile my favourite concert video. I agree that the Who are brilliant, but The Dirty Mac is raw perfection, I even buzz off Yoko's mad wailing, it sounds like John Cale's viola! And Clapton's playing with them is just garage band blues at it's best...I can't believe he's the same person he is now, and seeing him on this still makes me want a red 335.

I really don't think the stones had the show stolen from them here. Jagger looks like he's coming down from a four day bender with chapped lips, pallid almost green skin and wild eyes, while the rest of the band don't crack a smile throughout and are deadpan amazing. Keith Richards solo on sympathy for the devil is at least as mercurial and wild as the recorded version....upon first watching this I started learning to play guitar. I think it either rings your bells or it doesn't, but I struggle to understand why this is not adored by everyone x

5.0 out of 5 stars At first I liked it a fair bit.... years later I still can't get it out of my head, 28 Aug. 2007
This review is from: Weird Tales (Audio CD)
I got this album when it first came out as I was a big fan of Wilco, the Jayhawks and Big Star (still am). When I first started listening to it I thought it was pretty good but nothing life changing. But there's something about the songs on this that seeped into my subconscious, and I remember them all word for word and end up singing them still all the time, even though my CD got scratched beyond being playable years ago. Just found it on amazon after looking for it in record shops for ages and I'm going to buy it again because it's top! It sounds so relaxed, like there all having fun just getting off on writing the kind of tunes they'd want to listen to.

I played it to death back then, and I'm going to play it to death again. One of my personal favourite albums ever... although I wouldn't expect people to agree with me until they've lived with it in their car stereo for a bit (it's a really good album for driving along to). Maybe even then people won't agree with me but I don't care, I love it. This and Mermaid Avenue are my favourites. Oh and Hope and Adams by Wheat
