Shell-shocked
6 April 2008 | by beresfordjdSee all my reviews

I have just watched this for the umpteenth time in 40 years and even as a die-hard Stones fan I have to say this film is really not worth it as a record of the Rolling Stones performance. They really seem to be going through the motions especially Wyman. Perhaps they felt they could not cancel due to Brian Jones' death and so they went ahead. Out of tune and under-rehearsed the playing is less than one would expect even as early as this in their career. Mick Taylor makes a decent job of his first live gig (talk about pressure!!)The African percussion was an appalling idea and I am sure if any performance was as bad as this one then they would have been canned off at any other time. Jagger (bless him) is as phony as he always is-I love the fact that I have never been sure which is the real Mick as every time I see him interviewed he has a different accent. Don't get me wrong I still hero worship him and his band-no-one has done what they have done and probably never will. Never judge the Stones on a given performance-the next one will be as awful or as brilliant as you have ever seen.This film is just a snapshot of a particular time and day and as such is worth looking at.
