Product Description

Alfred Music Publishing is the world's largest educational music publisher. Alfred produces educational reference pop and performance materials for teachers students professionals and hobbyists spanning every musical instrument style and difficulty level. Martin Scorsese leaps into the madness of The Rolling Stones in Shine a Light barely controlling a documentary that culminates in the Stones best concert on film. The movie s highly entertaining pre-performance prologue finds a frazzled Scorsese trying to get a clue about the band s plans for a very special New York City date in 2006 a benefit hosted by Bill and Hillary Clinton. While Mick Jagger quibbles over concepts for the stage s set and peruses lists of possible songs to include in the show Scorsese tries to figure out how to shoot something for which he has few production details. Everything falls into place eventually and after an extraordinary meet-and-greet scene in which Jagger Keith Richards Ron Wood and Charlie Watts catch up with the Clintons and sweetly introduce themselves to Hillary s mom the Stones launch into a set that leans less heavily than usual on their greatest hits canon.Longtime fans are sure to appreciate the wealth of generally-untapped material from Let It Bleed ( You Got the Silver Live With Me ) Exile On Main Street ( All Down the Line Loving Cup ) and Some Girls ( Faraway Eyes Just My Imagination ). Jack White Christina Aguilera and Buddy Guy are on hand for memorable collaborations but the Stones themselves are truly on fire in the relatively intimate setting of a small theater. Among the highlights is a sexy and even thrilling call-and-response between Jagger and ace backup singer Lisa Fischer on She Was Hot Richards gracious and expansive solo on Connection and Jaggers witty take on Some Girls. Throughout the show Scorsese and an army of camera operators cover the action from every conceivable angle which results not so much in another hyperkinetic concert film but rather in

5.0 out of 5 stars No Dinosaurs here! Sept. 9 2008
Too many people knock the Stones for being too old, and milking a die hard fan base when they should supposedly be looking into their retirement plans. There is certainly no evidence of that on this DVD. Having seen the Stones almost every tour since "Some Girls", the boys are playing better than ever. Keith and Ronnie are playing off each other superbly while Mick continues to amaze with his energy levels, while Charlie never misses a beat. This is some of the tightest playing you will see them do. The film is full of absolute classics, but rarely played in their stadium shows - parts of the film are a joyous tribute to Exile on Main Street. On top of that the standard classics are there as well. What more could you want? It really doesn't get much better than this - and this is definitely no swan song.

4.0 out of 5 stars Stones, Cinematic Style March 29 2013
By Uldis Kundrats TOP 500 REVIEWER
Most of SHINE A LIGHT was shot during an up close and personal Rolling Stones performance at the Beacon Theater in New York. A lot of publicity preceded the concert, given that famed director Martin Scorcese was going to be directing the movie shoot. Ageist cynics wondered out loud how the craggy countenances of the Stones would look under the hot lights.

Yes, there are moments when Mick, Keith, and Ronnie do look like a trio of singing, guitar slinging, grizzled gargoyles. So what!! The songs on SHINE A LIGHT are carefully chosen, some of them seldom heard and given updated arrangements. The guests (Buddy Guy, Jack White, and Christine Aguillera) provide a nice change of pace. More often than not, the playing is very good and the camera work effectively takes in the broad sweep of the Stones and the other singers and musicians on stage, as well as the audience which seems to be on its feet clapping or cheering.

Mick Jagger seems to pull out every jittery, jump and twist out of his bag of dancing moves. It seems that he gets some coaching in this department. When the Rolling Stones were new in 1964, they followed James Brown in the Teen Age Music International (TAMI) show that was filmed for a movie. It was said that Jagger's hyperkinetic performance that night was his effort to prove that Mr Dynamite couldn't upstage him completely. Watching Mick J in SHINE A LIGHT might make a viewer wonder whether he still feels he has something to prove.

Keith Richards does a very nice version of You Got The Silver, as well as the more obscure Connection, first done live on a brief tour of Europe in 1967. There are plenty of Stones classics on SHINE A LIGHT, including Satisfaction, Brown Sugar, and Start Me Up.

5.0 out of 5 stars Thoroughly enjoyable! Nov. 19 2013
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I had watched this a few times before purchasing, but I wanted it in blu-ray for the better sound and picture. Great performance and historical bits in this video...a must for any Rolling Stone fan. Martin Scorsese does a masterful job, very much the same as he did with the Last Waltz by the Band many years ago.
My wife and other friends, who are not the biggest RS fans, thoroughly enjoyed it. A great addition to your music library.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Rolling Stones can actually play Jan. 6 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I didn't know that, having grown up with them on the radio but never having found it "my style": too rough, harmonies too shaky, etc.

But live, in a small theatre, this is just fun. I've watched it many times and hope to watch it many more.

It's hard to find good concert movies (I find), but this is one.

(They're still rough. Their harmonies are still abysmal. But i) it sounds great overall and ii) it's fun to watch them having fun!
