Did You Know?

Originally shot with 8 IMAX cameras outfitted with the first long load film magazines. 5 concerts in 3 cities. The magazines were so huge and the ballistics of the loading so unpredictable, there was no guarantee of complete coverage of any song in any single concert. Eventually trying to cut this on a flatbed proved impossible. Recently re-released EditDroids were in Toronto on various projects and one was custom configured with the help of the folks at Lucas in Los Angeles. All 35mm "twist reduction" work print was reassembled in original rolls, transfered to video and recorded on one-off laser videodiscs. The 8-headed Droid could load all data bases and imaging for a single song in all concert locations. The editors could jump to any point in a song, see what was available (or not) then jump to the same spot in all subsequent concerts. The trick was tracing back from the Droid data through laserdisc data through video data back to 35mm stepdown print edge code and ultimately to the original IMAX neg - frame accurately to produce the neg cut list that needed to sync with the original 64 track digital recordings.See more »

Good Concert with Nice Reworked Songs, 21 February 2011
Author: Michael_Elliott from Louisville, KY

Rolling Stones: At the Max (1991)

*** (out of 4)

Filmed during the European leg of the Stones' 1990 Steel Wheels tour, this production was shot for the IMAX screens so obviously seeing it there compared to your television is going to make a lot of different but I've always felt that no matter how you see it you need a strong performance, which you get here, although at the same time I'd say this concert isn't nearly the best that the group has released and certainly doesn't come close to what Martin Scorsese would pull off with SHINE A LIGHT.

Start Me Up/ Sad Sad Sad/ Tumbling Dice/ Ruby Tuesday/ Rock and a Hard Place/ Honky Tonk Women/ You Can't Always Get What You Want/ Happy/ Paint it Black/ 2000 Light Years from Home/ Sympathy for the Devil/ Street Fighting Man/ It's Only Rock 'n Roll/ Brown Sugar/ Satisfaction

Needless to say, there aren't any limits on the classics as the group comes out with a thunderous Start Me Up and it only gets better from here. The highlights include hearing some of this terrific tracks in a way that they hadn't been played on previous tours and this includes a terrific Ruby Tuesday and a more low-key but still rocking Tumbling Dice. I don't think Satisfaction has ever sounded bad and the terrific guitar opening from Richard on Paint it Black is certainly very memorable. For the most part the group is in top form but I'd still say this concert film falls well short of previous releases and a couple they did after this one. I think this is still a good show overall but if you want to show the Stones at their greatest then SHINE A LIGHT and LADIES AND GENTLEMEN THE ROLLING STONES are your best bets and not to mention GIMME SHELTER.
