It is a straight show, no backstage footage, no interviews, no filler, no lame alternate versions, just straight forward rock n roll. Why this film has never been given an official release is beyond me. It is long overdue for release. Instead the public are treated to turkeys such as the Hyde Park show. If you're a classic rock fan and haven't watched Ladies n Gentlemen, get a copy, you won't regret it.
With all the re-mastering of other concerts why hasn't this one been released. I'm getting sick and tired of the current Stones live productions, very repetitious and boring.
I seen this movie twice within the space of a week almost 30 years ago and it is still firmly etched in my memory. The Taylor years are simply the best and this concert showcases this brilliant and under rated guitarist his at his peak. Great set of songs taken from the Stones' golden era of writing and performing. This collection of numbers recorded over two nights in Texas, prove that the Stones, at least for a little while, really were the Greatest Band in the World.
You have to love the acoustic performance of Sweet Virginia. Mick Taylor frankly steals the show, particularly with his slide work on All Down the Line. But there's no getting past the fact that this is Mick and Keith's band: their performances are consistently stellar. Mick's leadership and Keith's suspensions are what made this band great in the first place.
It's really a shame that this footage does not have a widespread release. Clearly, the tour was the nadir of their career. The Stones in Texas, terriner 31 January You can tell the Fort Worth shows by the lights behind the stage that are aimed at a high reflecting fixture above and in front of the stage which would bounce the lights onto the stage.
Hofheinz Pavilion's ceiling in Houston was too low for this setup, so you have the basic light setup for the time. Seeing the Stones 15 times, this was the only time I saw Mick Taylor play with them. I also think Ian Stewart is at the piano for Brown Sugar. Anyone interested in the Stones should see this film.
A great band at a critical time. I've got the DVD! I bought it off ebay from a source in Canada. The package itself is not the best design and the features are limited, but the concerts are there in their entirety, with excellent sound and footage, with a few bonus tracks.
I'm currently in the process of transferring it to audio CD so I can listen to the tracks elsewhere. I'm also a graphic designer and plan to design a soundtrack with pictures and commentary for it.
Of course I couldn't nor afford to make enough copies to sell since that would be illegal, but if I were to somehow get a copy out to the Stones' themselves maybe they could make something happen.
At any rate, the DVD is worth buying. Honestly its better than Gimmie Shelter performance-wise and definitely better than any of their contemporary crap. The Glimmer Twins are in full swing when it comes to the backback tracks of Dead Flowers and Happy.
You get that feeling of good old fashioned Rock'n'roll. This is a historic concert movie like Woodstock, but even better because it is the worlds greatest rock n roll band at their very best, with the raw rocking guitars sounds of Richards, and Taylor. Cool Bill Wyman in the background strumming the beat with his bass as Charlie Watts beats the drumms to a howling voice of the slickest most exciting front man in any band Mick Jagger.
I use to go see this every chance that I would get,usually at the Midnight Cinemaback in the 70's to party in the theater and watch this concert movie. Now I finally own it. Along with The Song Remains The Same this is my all time favorite concert movie that I can just listen to the music without watching it, and fade deeply into the tunes that still to this date hipnotize me as they did then some thirty years ago.

According to Marshall Chess, president of Rolling Stones Records, which bankrolled the film, Spector purchased distribution rights to the property.
The Stones collect a royalty from the proceeds of the tour. The film tour will start with five units after New York they will open in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago, Dallas and Atlanta and when or if they make their money back, they will move into smaller cities.
Originally it was going to be part of a documentary that photographers Robert Frank and Danny Seymour were to make of the entire American tour. That film is being held up, reportedly because Sinclair and Ono are fighting over whether the money should go to the Black Panthers or the New York Feminists. The two filmmakers, plus a four-man camera crew, shot in 16mm film, mostly from the back of the halls using a mm lens powerful enough to pull in full close-ups.
