4.0 out of 5 stars More of the Who please.......!!!, 20 July 2005
This review is from: The Rolling Stones: Rock And Roll Circus [DVD] [2004] [Region 1] [NTSC] (DVD)
Fantastic DVD, no thanks to the Stones.
A flat performance all round from them. Carrying an ill and addled Brian Jones through lacklustre shapes. Only the mighty "Sympathy for the devil" takes them anywhere near their incendiary best. Even then, Jagger becomes hard to watch in a sublimely hysterical performance. I waited for "No expectations", expecting beauty, it was flat, lacking the great finesse of the original. The whole gig coulda been so much better.
However, in return for your money you get the magisterial Who. They manage to carpet bomb all before them with an insane take on "A quick one while hes away". Moon, flailing away like a gurning Methadrine crazed Dervish, water rising from the Snares like licking flames, as if he about to consume himself in his own mentalness. Townshend shines here giving that Gibson a good kicking, producing a great chaotic wall of noise. All rock n roll bands should be like this.
