Good value - could have been better
on 26 January 2017
Containing 2 CDs and a concert DVD, this is good value, particularly for Stones fans and those who were there. The sound, however, is not 5-star quality. Any outdoor performance sounds a bit muffled or unclear at times, with volumes and low/high notes varying with the breeze, crowd movements etc. All that can (and so should) be cleaned up by professional sound recordists and mixers; sadly this production didn't do that. However, the camera edits don't flick rapidly from one view to another (as is often the case!), and are clear and well chosen, including the audience shots, so it looks like a live event.
The video includes introductory footage from the first Stones In The Park concert, some general Glastonbury scenes, band members making observations etc, but these are mostly well chosen and placed, not intruding on the main story.
I have to agree with other reviewers in despairing of the "bonus tracks" on the DVD. I suppose some bigwig in some remote office insisted at least three be separated out just so the package could have the magic word "bonus" ...!
