It's a gas, gas, gas!

The Rolling Stones, raw and primal, glam and punk, kicking it hard down in Texas. This doc is being released on DVD in November, but I'm so glad I saw it on the big screen: the close-ups of Mick and Keith spitting into the same microphone; the framing of Bill Wyman's fingers as they run across the bass strings; Ron Wood, cig hanging from his mouth. And the music! Fierce versions of "Star Star" and "When the Whip Comes Down." Intense, soulful cover of "Just My Imagination (Running Away With Me) and, man oh man, that one two three finale of "Sweet Little Sixteen," "Brown Sugar" and "Jumpin' Jack Flash." Filthy!

Great concert movie, Stones at their peak, fabulous guitar work Begininng interview with Jagger (now, looking back) was very interesting, pointing out how much of his Some Girls writing and performace was from the NYC music scene at that time

This was one of the best concert films on the Rolling Stones I have seen. It is definitely better than "Ladies & Gentlemen" although I enjoyed that too. This footage is raw and fresh. Ronnie Wood is ripping it up as a relatively new member. Mick is going off, while Keith is solidly conducting every change. Charlie & Wyman a hold down a killer bottom end. What is rare about this footage is that it comes on the heals of the release of Some Girls (just 6 weeks prior) and yet the band play nearly the entire album. You don't see that these days. The whole concert is pedal to the metal except for a couple of slow down songs ( FAr Away Eyes & Love in Vain) other than that, this concert goes off hard. I highly recommend this to any real Stones fan. The DVD is sheduled to be released Nov. 21st. A must buy.

Next best thing to seeing them live. Stones were in their prime, typical Mick is over the top. This is a great piece from the 70's era. If I had to say something bad it would be that the Mick interview was a little too long and seemed to just fizzle out.

I was one of the lucky ones

Yes i was one of the lucky 4000 who were there that hot July night, I was listening to Rhoady and La Bela on KZEW that morning when they announced THE GREEN BOOT COWBOYS would be playing at Will Rodgers,somehow I had a belief that it was the Stones. The movie was just the way a concert movie should be, shot from the crowd just like you see a concert, not allot of jumping back and forth between different cameras. The theater I saw it in had good sound probably better then the arena had that night with everyone going crazy and singing along. I would love to see this again, and was very pleased. As a twenty year old who didn't have the money to go to New Orleans ( all my friends left that morning) I can't tell you how lucky I was to see both the concert and the movie. I highly encourage any one to see this movie!!!!!!!!!!!!
