The Rolling Stones - The Stones In The Park (1969) R2 Retail DVD
July 5-th 1969 history on the strings was made when the Rolling Stones performed a free concert in Hyde Park in front of half a million people. This concert criminally ignored on DVD since now is featured here, alas in a not so happy technical presentation. Provided with a mono soundtrack and with somehow bluish pictures, still this remains quite a feast for the fans. As Mick said at one moment " A concert is not just to hear the music as it really is that's for the studio to do..." those expected crystal clear strains and video sharp like pictures should search elsewhere. There are eight livemore… songs: Midnight Rambler, Satisfaction, I'm Free, I'm Yours She's Mine, Jumping Jack Flash, Honky Tonk Woman, Love in Vain and Sympathy for the Devil. Although not all are at 451 Fahrenheit (Satisfaction is sadly one of the letdowns) still image and music combined are worth the money and the forbidden fruit Sympathy.... is sang with the help of an African band in an unforgettable Voodoo like ceremony. Hells Angels are also seen there but they are more like Mengele's Angels judging from their SS uniforms and insignias. In total opposition with their Californian cousins at Altamont Concert (a few months later) they were harmful here, their age and fashion style reminding more of the lost children of Mad Max III movie than Easy Rider. Another surprise is Paul McCartney seen in the crowd for a couple of seconds during end credits. In all not being an ordinary concert but " In Memoriam " one (Brian Jones being found dead two days before, in his swimming pool) this DVD will revive history for those not so fortunate to live it then.
