    It's four different performances from the last tour, plus lots of extras.

    Very ambitious set - I can't wait to get it. This should really set the standard for concerts on DVD.

    My only disappointment? The inclusion of the Paris small show instead of the concert at Roseland in NYC. I attended the latter and thought it was easily the best Stones shows I've seen. (Been to 36 of them, BTW.) Perhaps the Paris concert is on the same level - guess I'll find out next week!

    Rolling Stones at Roseland? That would be a great show, I bet. Here are some reviews for the Paris show. They are positive. Mostly. I'll be picking up copies for myself and my dad when this one hits. Wow.

    Audio commentary from the band? I love Keith, but he's incoherent on a good day. Has anybody ever seen the video of Hunter S. Thompson interviewing Keith Woods? It's a lot of fun, but I have no idea what they talk about.

    Here are a couple quotes from the Paris show reviews:



    How can you do 22 songs in less than two hours? I will tell you - just play them fast and don't let them hang around till forever...

    Those songs! Jagger was soo great this show, he didn't spare his voice, like on Worried and That's how strong. Tears in my eyes. My wish was to hear those songs and I got them, and done fantastically, like only the Stones can. I love them for it. Neighbours, Respectable, Stray Cat, Rip this joint, Nearness, o my God, how wonderful. I thought I was dreaming. Keith really came through, played some fantastic pieces. Charlie coming to the front and saying he wanted to sing. All rehearsed for the DVD (he stood up and stepped down from his drums just before he was introduced, lol), but unique and funny. I felt special. We all did.

    We got 22 songs ; I did very much enjoy the show and still I have mixed emotions. My love for the Stones pinnacles on the wall of guitars. Songs such as Midnight Rambler(every tour), 1981/82 shows with many instrumental parts with saxophone and guitars(Hampton 81). Flashpoint's SFTD, No security's Out of Control ; Such songs are why I like the Stones. Unfortunately I had to find out that FOR ME there was no magic in the guitar playing at the Olympia. Woody's volume was turned down and could hardly be heard. Keith was only capable to play mean "chuck berry" licks.
    The Stones didn't play MR or CYHMK (while the intention was to play that song) and because of that I was dissapointed. The evening made clear that Mick Jagger was the master of the evening and there were no runners' up. Chuck and Charlie played well. Darryl could have done better (Octaves in both Stray Cat Blues & Jumping Jack Flash made those songs so special).


    (Ok, that one wasn't so positive...)

    The DVD of the MSG show was the HBO broadcast, but it will be edited. The DVD's setlist is:

    Street Fighting Man
    If You Can't Rock Me
    Don't Stop
    Monkey Man
    Angie
    Let It Bleed
    Midnight Rambler
    Thru and Thru
    Happy
    You Got Me Rocking
    Can't You Hear Me Knockin'
    Honky Tonk Woman
    (I Can't Get No) Satisfaction
    It's Only Rock N' Roll
    When The Whip Comes Down
    Brown Sugar
    Sympathy For The Devil

    The DVD is missing four songs: Start Me Up, Tumbling Dice, Gimme Shelter and Jumping Jack Flash. Much the same way I support OAR, I support concert releases that are indeed releases of the entire show. Being that the whole thing was broadcast on HBO and that they have the footage, it seems dreadfully stupid to cut out songs. I understand that there will be some repeats from disc to disc because of similar setlists, but as someone who was at the MSG show I'd like to actually have the full thing.

    Dream release?

    Not quite.

    Dream release would be 4 concerts from the 60s ...

    They're quite competent nowadays, but nowhere near great.

    This release adds about 18 songs to my Stones filmography.
    Got the box for just $22.00 after some credit deal that BB had given me a few months ago.
    The video is not all it should be, and no it's not 1969 anymore, and yes, the estate of Hoagy Carmichael might sue Keith...

    All three concerts have DD5.1 and PCM stereo audio. The New York "Arena" and Paris "Theater" shows are presented in 4:3. The London "Stadium" show is presented in anamorphically enhanced 16:9. The documentary is presented in 4:3 and PCM stereo audio. The bonus concert performances on the documentary disc are 16:9 enhanced widescreen except for the tour rehearsal clips which are 4:3.

    There are about 3-4 songs excised from each show.

    To me, at least, 4:3 makes sense for the New York show since it was being shot for live broadcast with over 2-dozen cameras. It was probably impractical to go hi-def with that much coverage, so they shot it in standard definition in the 4:3 ratio.

    There are a couple of minor anomalies with the London "Stadium" disc. The opening montage is pretty clearly 4:3 video squeezed to 16:9, but as soon as they cut to the actual concert, everything looks great. Also, there is a supplement where they show the "Honky Tonk Woman" performance interspersed with direct clips of the animation played on the big screen behind the band. The performance parts are the same as in the concert proper, but everytime it switches to the video, it is distorted from 4:3 to 16:9. No biggie in either case, but hey, if I can't be anal retentive on the forum, where can I be. [​IMG]

    Has anyone been able to get the MX multi-angle feature to work on this set?
