Storyline

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."

The best there is
30 January 2005 | by (Norway) – See all my reviews

Excellent! This is the concert film with the Stones. It is a mystery why this film is not officially released. I've always been disappointed with the Stones live films. I've never understood what made people rave about why the Stones were so great live. Look to "The Stones in the park" 1969 or the horrendous "Let's spend the night together" 1981 and you'll see my point. However for this tour, the Exile on main street tour, they seem to up the ante. Everything seems to click. The Stones, a tight unit! Live playing, records, coolness, image, this is where they reach their zenith. They have just finished the four best records of their career and are really flying. It's hard to understand why they are so good here and so unbelievably under par before or years to come. Maybe it's the drug use? which in Keith Richards' case, really started to escalate from here on. Maybe it's because Mick Taylor really found his groove with the band? I don't know, but it's a crying shame that this feature hasn't been released with restored sound and pictures ala the excellent "Gimme shelter" DVD. If you really want to know what The Stones could be capable of at the peak of their career, get this film one way or the other!
