4.0 out of 5 stars Raw stones-Hot hippies, 14 Sep 2009
This review is from: The Rolling Stones - The Stones In The Park [1969] [DVD] (DVD)
I had this on VHS for years and years.
Its a favourite.While undoubtedly rusty,the stones exude an effortless hippy-cool and the music is raw and groovy.Often hilarious in places because it seems Jagger is almost doing an impression of someone doing an impression of him!!
I think the film gives a hint of just how enormous the Stones were at this point in their career,and this film is infinitely more watchable than the later stuff,when frankly,they'd all but lost it i feel.
Look out for the awesome Johnny Winter cover 'I'm Hers and She's Mine' that opens the gig to an accompaniement of half-dead butterflies being released to 500,000 punters.Really groovy stuff!
Song highlights?....erm..'Satisfaction','I'm Free' and 'Jumpin Jack Flash'.But also an interesting historical document regarding the Hippies and British Hells Angels.(Jagger would go on to make the fatal mistake of assuming that the American Angels would do a similar job of marshalling the infamous Altamont gig in California later in 1969,but thats another story on the 'Gimme Shelter DVD')
What the Stones MUST do is release 'Ladies And Gentlemen-The Rolling Stones' film of their 72 american tour!!Other than that,this DVD is as good as it gets for live stones on DVD.

The half million people who were in Hyde Park that day were not 'punters'. The Stones played this concert for free. No tickets. No fences. No admission charge. I know. I was there.
