5.0 out of 5 stars Cheaper to Buy Seasons Separately, July 16 2010
If you buy all five seasons separately (and from Amazon.ca), you will save more than $35 compared to buying this set. Odd.

1.0 out of 5 stars I was interested in this movie until I read the last review, July 11 2010
Thanks to the last reviewer for convincing me that this movie is not worth watching (i.e., "what good"?). If they do not give both sides of the story, then they are not being objective, and are therefore not doing their job as documentarians.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is NOT Vinyl!, March 24 2010
This review is from: Wasted Heart (Vinyl) (LP Record)
Amazon refused my suggested update, but I purchased this exact item and it is NOT vinyl! It is a CD that is a vinyl REPLICA.

1.0 out of 5 stars This is a Compilation, Dec 13 2008
This review is from: Devil By The Tail (Audio CD)
This is a compilation of the "Wrecking Everything" and "Killbox 13" releases. There is nothing new on it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not Bad, July 2 2006
This isn't great, but I don't think it is as bad as a lot of others feel. I also want to point out that despite the argument by some that there are no interviews with Stones members, there are, in fact interviews with former members Bill Wyman and Mick Taylor. There are also interviews with Billy Preston, who I am sure fans will agree is possibly the most important non-member of the Stones. Finally, there are interviews with some of the musicians who have been touring with the Stones since Steel Wheels. I will agree, however, that the fact that Jagger, Richards, Wood and Watts were not part of the project is a big downside.

You won't hear any complete songs, but I think these DVDs provide a decent historical documentary of the band. So if you want to learn about the history of the band, this is a good place to start, at least.

4.0 out of 5 stars It is edited, Feb. 18 2006
The set is great, but Buyer Beware: The episodes have been edited. While watching the episodes, they seemed unusually short, even after taking into account that the music videos are omitted. I finally noticed while watching "Figure Drawing" that little bits and pieces that are not essential to the plot have been cut. I watched a VHS version of this episode that I bought years ago, and confirmed that some bits have been cut. I guess they were cut for space, but as someone that wants to see the episodes in their entirey, this is annoying.
Otherwise, this is an awesome set, and highly recommended.
