The Stones In The Park
Reviewed by David Savage
This is an hour long documentary about the Rolling Stones filmed on July 5th 1969 in Hyde Park, London. 250,000 fans gathered to see the Stones play this free concert 2 days after their guitarist Brian Jones died. While it was supposed to be a concert to welcome new guitarist Mick Taylor it ended up being a tribute to founder Brian Jones with a poetry reading by Mick Jagger and the release of hundreds of butterflies.
The film has been remastered into High Definition with Dolby 5.1 sound and features the band playing their hits, including Satisfaction, Mercy, Mercy, Honky Tonk Women, Jumping Jack Flash, and Sympathy for the Devil.
As well as the music there are interviews throughout with the band members and even shows the Hell’s Angels being hired for security at the concert.
Overall, this is must have for any Stones fan. Includes several remastered classic hits, interviews and even Mick Jagger’s press conference after his release from prison. Currently at under £13 it is a fantastic price (released 18 June 2012).
