a very English afternoon,
This review is from: The Rolling Stones: The Stones In The Park [DVD] (DVD)
Four and a half stars, really, for this very nice little film that's more a document of an event than of the concert that was the centerpeice of that event.
The sound is mono, which might bother some of you newfangled types, but it's fine with me. In _According to the Stones_ Keith Richards states that in terms of sound, this was one of their most abysmal shows ever. Which is a totally different issue than how well they're playing, mind you, but be aware that the sound on this dvd is pretty ... hm, authentic-sounding, shall we say. The groovy 60s-style camera "effects" get a little embarrassing a few times, and the camera's fixation with Mick Jagger is unfortunate - hello, there's a whole band at work up there, could we have some footage of them too please?!
But all in all it's a warm, charming and fascinating document of a very English afternoon that the Stones' free concert provided the excuse for, and of the Stones' gallant way of honouring Brian Jones.
