3.0 out of 5 stars 25 year wait for this?, 3 April 2012
This review is from: The Rolling Stones - The Stones In The Park [1969] [DVD] (DVD)
I have been looking for this film for at least the last 25 years. In that time it has never been released in North America so when I saw it was out in the rest of the world I couldn't get it fast enough. I had herd that the Stones did not play that well. That was a major understatement. They are horrible in this film. It sounds like they just got up on staged and winged it. Honky Tonk Woman sound like it is being played by someone who just picked up their first guitar and were shown how to play the beginning of the song. It is so slow it's painful. They have a group of African drummers with them during Sympathy For The Devil and I dont know if it's because the mix is so bad but there were parts in the song that did not sound anything like the original studio version or the live versions recorded later. Don't get me wrong I am very glad to have found the film. Historically in the halls of classic rock this is a very important film. Two days after Brian Jones funeral and the first show with Mick Taylor ( In case you don't know Brian Jones was fired from the Stones earlier and the concert was already a go before Brian died). But if you want to check out the Mick Taylor period of the Stones pick up the DVD/Blu ray of "Gimme Shetler" or "Ladies and Gentlemen the Rolling Stones" there is no question those are much better shows. But if you are a Stones fan especially if your a die hard this film is a must.
