Filmed over a few nights during the 1972 "Exile on Main Street" tour, the show features the Rolling Stones with a brass section and a keyboardist (no chorists). Although you can see Mick Jagger with different clothing, the energy of the various dates is constantly high and feels as if the performances came from only one representation. The concerts starts off with a version of Brown Sugar that sounds like Brown Sugar. The interplay between Mick Taylor and Keith Richards creates a song that reproduces the magic of the Sticky Fingers opener and that feeling goes on through the show.
In this video Keith Richards still hasn't become the pop culture icon which he is associated with now. He doesn't have time to make poses, gestures, faces and all those gimmicks (he doesn't even smoke). He is just too busy playing to keep up with Mick Taylor's constant soloing. Keith finally provides backing vocals on the fourth song of the show, Dead Flowers and his high-pitched countryesque vocals are excellent to compensate for the absence of chorists on Sweet Virginia. Personally, I prefer the songs without chorists although Gimme Shelter is missing the female voice.
It is great to hear Bitch and Happy has never rocked that much. Jagger provides Richards with a little help during the chorus and the chemistry works all along. You don't get to see much of Wyman and Watts however. The setlist doesn't have much filler, but I could have spared Chuck Berry's Bye Bye Johnny for Wild Horses, Rocks Off or additional Beggars' Banquet material.
Bonuses inlude rehearsals of Shake your Hips, Tumbling Dice and Bluesberry Jam which are nice.Read more ›
Mick Taylor made the Stones a better band!
The cameras don't stray too far from Mick Jagger, but Keith and Mick Taylor do get some camera time. Unfortunately, Bill and Charlie are pretty much left out. The video on blu-ray isn't up to high-def standards, but that's simply due to the source footage. The sound is great considering the age of the source.
If you have a hard time watching the Stones' current live shows and are a fan of the Mick Taylor era, I can't recommend this highly enough.
