For completists only !

If it had just been the shoddy performances, or unimaginative presentation that spoilt this concert film, it might have escaped being the pretty awful specimen that it is.
The fact that no one else has posted a review for this speaks volumes... I can hardly be bothered myself - but I thought it might be useful for anyone contemplating spending good money on it.
So, to specifics - the track listing includes "Black Limousine" "All Down the Line" "Brown Sugar" "You Can't Always Get what you Want" "Honky Tonk Women" "Jumpin' Jack Flash" "Let It Bleed" "Let's Spend the Night Together" "Satisfction" "Under My Thumb" "Going To A Go-Go" "Just My Imagination (Running Away With Me)" "Time Is On My Side" "Twenty Flight Rock" - which should be an ok set.. but the performances are often sloppy, rushed and uninspired.
In fact, the musical highlight is probably the fireworks display at the end with Hendrix's Woodstock recording of "Star Spangled Banner" coming over the P.A. !
Visually, most of the film is straight footage of the concert, although "Time Is On My Side" features some random archive film...
Overall, not their finest hour
