Ladies & Gentlemen... The Rolling Stones

Ladies & Gentlemen... The Rolling Stones“Considered by many fans to be the
  band
s finest performance ever
  captured on film, and billed at the time
  as ‘...the most powerful rock film
  ever made’,
Ladies & Gentlemen... The
  Rolling Stones
makes its long-awaited
  debut onto Blu-ray and DVD
...

PERHAPS THE MOST SOUGHT-AFTER ROLLING STONES concert performance by the band
's enormous following, Ladies & Gentlemen... The Rolling Stones is a brilliant slice of rock history, portraying as it does a special time in the band's long and esteemed career.

From the moment Mick Jagger bounds onto the stage to sing the Stones' great track Brown Sugar, he never lets up for one moment. Bursting with energy, Mick has a seductive, lazy way about him while he evokes his trademark devil-may-care attitude.

There is something very special about this DVD. It is very personal and Jagger's performance is heartfelt and emotional. He slips into overdrive for the terrific Midnight Rambler as easily as he changes costume, produces a fabulous version of Chuck Berry's Bye, Bye Johnny (B Good) and looks about to take off with the brilliant, all-time favourite Jumpin' Jack Flash. You could almost be there.

We found ourselves getting very caught up in the moment and the band's enjoyment of the performance. Mick's antics could well be "burning a hole in my pants" as he sings the lyrics from Happy. And when he threatens to turn the heat up, he does just that with All Down The Line. Clowning around, amazingly Mick still has some energy left for Street Fighting Man that sends quivers down your spine.

The line-up for this performance comprised Mick Jagger (Vocals/Harmonica); Keith Richard (Vocals/Guitar); Charlie Watts (Drums); Bill Wyman (Bass); Mick Taylor (Guitar) with Bobby Keyes (Saxophone/Percussion); Jim Price (Trumpet/Trombone); Nicky Hopkins (Piano) and Ian Stewart (Mystery Piano). A recipe for success!

Prepare to be seduced by the ultimate rock musicians in this remarkable DVD that reeks of fun and excitement as Ladies & Gentlemen... The Rolling Stones delivers the best of the best.
