An amazing film which captures the creation of the Rolling Stones classic rock album... and the drink, drugs and scandal that went with it.




Ladies And Gentlemen: The Rolling Stones 1972 Concert

abc2 9:30pm Friday, December 03 2010


Ladies and Gentlemen: The Rolling Stones 1972 Concert is an energetic look at the band at the height of their stardom performing tunes from their critically acclaimed Exile On Main Street, Sticky Fingers, Let It Bleed and Beggars Banquet.

Filmed in Texas in the middle of their 1972 North American tour this is one of the all-time great concert films, capturing The Rolling Stones at the peak of their power as recording and performing giants.

Doing what they do best – guitar-fuelled R&B with pop flair and youthful rebelliousness thrown in for good measure – The Stones are at their liveliest and dangerous best.

Filmed simply and mostly in close-up, with un-enhanced stage lighting, the band is the focus and The Stones themselves provide all the energy the film needs.
The sheer power and vitality of The Stones’ performance in Ladies and Gentlemen: The Rolling Stones 1972 Concert is a devastating stretch of songs from the almost punk Chuck Berry cover, Bye Bye Johnny, to the laid back, countrified Dead Flowers, straight bluesy Love In Vain, to the upbeat Happy and a searing, intense and surprisingly sped up rendition of one of their darkest numbers, Midnight Rambler.

While The Rolling Stones of the 70s weren’t exactly renowned for their tightness, here they are surprisingly sharp without destroying that loose, unpredictable bar band energy that makes them great.

It’s a fuller sound with most of the poppy gloss removed. This is rock and roll stripped down to its elemental blues and country roots from a band that plays it with a confidence and swagger that will blow you away.




Heading out for the East Coast / Lord knows I've paid some dues gettin' through, / Tangled up in blues.

can we not just get Keith Richards to do Jack Sparrow impersonating and coconut juggling for 2011. would be awesome.

Trumpet bells ringing
Bass drum is swinging
As the trombone groans
And the big horn moans
