The Rolling Stones

Under Review 1967-1969 DVD

Review by Gary Hill

This whole Under Review series is pretty incredible. Rather than simply tell the story of the bands (which in many cases have already been well documented, anyway), these documentaries present some of the biographical information, but more in the context of how it affected the music and vice versa. We get critical analysis of the music by musicians and music scholars along with the rest of the story. That makes these things fascinating. This particular video covers one of the most turbulent times in the history of the Stones. To quote an ancient Chinese curse, “may you live in interesting times.” Well, these times for the Stones were interesting and no doubt difficult, but that makes them all the more fascinating from a historical perspective. This is a “must have” for Stones fans, but really for anyone interested in music from that period of time.

This review is available in book format (hardcover and paperback) in Music Street Journal: 2007 Volume 6 at lulu.com/strangesound.
