I give this movie a 5 out of 5 star rating. It was definitely an old looking movie, but it was so cool. And seeing the outfits Mick constanly donned made it more fun to watch, seeing him in a white sequined jumpsuit one minute, and then seeing him in a blue with white polka dot jumpsuit the next minute made it fun to watch. And the music not to forget was pretty cool.

  1. Hey, thanks for stopping by the Music Project and for your comments.

    I can't get over the cover of this, with the Jagger pose...the man never ceases to amuse me with his dance moves and expressions.

    The music and video shine though, especially on Blu-ray. Great guitar work from Mick Taylor, although you get an idea of how he ultimately didn't work out with the rest of the band from his disconnected nature. I don't think he and Keith exchange looks even once...too bad, because IMHO he was probably the most capable and dynamic guitarist the Stones ever had.

    It's this tour where Mick really started to get on his game with the moves and silly schtick, and the Stones really became the Stones as we think of them today.
