In 1972, the Stones bring their Exile on Main Street tour to Texas: 15 songs, with five from the "Exile" album. Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Mick Taylor, Charlie Watts, and Bill Wyman on a small stage with three other musicians. Until the lights come up near the end, we see the Stones against a black background. The camera stays mostly on Jagger, with a few shots of Taylor. Richards is on screen for his duets and for some guitar work on the final two songs. It's music from start to finish: hard rock ("All Down the Line"), the blues ("Love in Vain" and "Midnight Rambler"), a tribute to Chuck Berry ("Bye Bye Johnny"), and no "Satisfaction." Written by
I saw this movie about 15 years ago and thought it was great. The screening was presented by someone who had worked on the movie. An assistant director or something, and I can recall him saying that the only surviving copies of this film were damaged in some way. The picture on the print I saw was screwed up for about the first 5 minutes of the movie. After that it was OK. Maybe that is why this has never been released to DVD.
Anyway, this is The Stones at their best. I wish they would release this to DVD, even if the picture is flawed. For that matter, why has Let It Be not been released on DVD?
