This review is from: Ladies & Gentlemen [DVD]  [NTSC] (DVD)
Not much to say that hasn't already been said. Just watched this gig on TV and immediately ordered the DVD. The Stones have always been inconsistent with their live performances but in 1972 they were at their absolute peak. They had brought out their greatest album, Exile On Main Street and their US tour was always considered their best when reviewed. This film is absolute proof of that! As someone else has already said, image does matter in rock 'n' roll and the band look like the coolest bunch around. They have an arrogant swagger about them backed up throughout by stunning performances. Jagger's vocals match his physical energy, Keith plays like it's his last day on earth and Mick Taylor, without doubt a crucial part of the Stones at their peak, adds sublime melody. Charlie plays as tight as a duck's arse and Bill is just Bill. Since "Exile", the band have never regained the heights they reached in 1972, despite some memorable songs and live gigs. They probably play better than ever these days but it just ain't the same as it was then. If you want to witness the "greatest rock 'n' roll band in the world" live up to that title with class to spare, you need go no further than this concert footage. Magnificent!

I strongly disagree with every seventh word of your review, excluding the pronouns and acronyms, of course.
