The Beginning Of Their Peak Live Years,
This review is from: The Rolling Stones - The Stones In The Park  [DVD] (DVD)
I've really enjoyed this film over the years and it's great to see it out on DVD with plenty of bonus material.
For me this was the beginning of their best live period with Mick Taylor now in the band. Late 60s/early 70s Stone rocked. This performance by them is quite raw, partly due to it being Taylor's first live appearance. Highlights include Love In Vain and the climax of Sympathy For The Devil (complete with African drummers).
This DVD releases come with lots of extras. The most interesting and relevant are 3 bonus tracks not originally featured in the film - Mercy Mercy, Stray Cat Blues and No Expectations. Unfortunately the latter two aren't complete.
I enjoyed this more than the Gimme Shelter movie mainly because of the vibe that surrounds the gig. This film still has the hippie ideal around it.
Maybe not essential viewing but if, like me, you love this period of the Stones then check it out!
