Some concert footage, but disappointing
13 June 2011 | by ninecursesSee all my reviews

Somewhat obscure and somewhat worth seeking out if you like the artists listed. I sought this out really for one thing, but ended up enjoying about half of it. That one thing - Ike & Tina Turner doing their version of Otis Redding's "I've Been Loving You Too Long". Their concert version of the song (from a great live album called 'What you Hear is what You Get') is one of my favorite live recordings of all time, so I looked forward to this movie to finally see a clip of it. Well - and I should have seen this coming - they only give us the last half of the song, so it was a bit of a disappointment (although it should be said that the sight of an incredibly sexy Tina Turner performing fellatio on her microphone makes the clip worthwhile).

Elsewhere, you've got a great clip of Otis Redding alongside a few less than stellar performances, namely Blind Faith and Cat Stevens. Oddly, there are also several concert clips with the original album recording laid on top of the video: Joe Cocker (With a little Help), Jimi (Freedom, with what i believe is the Band of Gypsies on stage),Pink FLoyd (Careful with that Axe) and Rod Stewart (Stay with Me). I know these songs too well; i actually won an argument with a friend who was convinced the entire movie is live clips. Warning, it is not.

5/10 for a few good ones and for fans, but overall not very satisfying as a movie experience.
