Audience Reviews for Ladies and Gentlemen: The Rolling Stones
Best concert film I've ever seen. Finally available on DVD.
Just supposing The Rolling Stones ever tire of documenting their decline and wish to celebrate their heyday instead - crazy thought, I know - Ladies and Gentlemen would make an excellent second half of a 2-disc set, twinned with the infamous Cocksucker Blues. Seeing the band emerge victorious from the shambolic excesses of ...Blues to give this splendid concert would have a similar sort of impact as watching The Beatles on the Apple rooftop after an hour's studio bickering in Let It Be. The film captures The Stones at their reinvigorated peak, having successfully wriggled out of a miserly record deal and escaped the equally rapacious clutches of the British taxman, accompanied by arguably their two greatest sidemen, pianist Nicky Hopkins and saxophonist Bobby Keys. This is everything a great concert movie should be. No gimmicks, no masturbatory shots of an adoring crowd; just a great band playing killer versions of some of their best material, mainly culled from Let It Bleed, Sticky Fingers and Exile on Main St. Ta, r&b.
great concert film from the stones' legendary american tour 1972 in support of exile on main street. this is the best footage i've seen of the stones in their prime. filmed over four nights in fort worth and houston, it was released with quadrophonic sound for limited theater engagements but has never had a home video release. the vid is a bit rough on bootleg but it's well worth seeking out for stones fans. see why they were called the greatest rock n roll band in the world in this period
