REVIEW:

There have been countless releases of this famous documentary featuring footage from the Stones 1972 tour, an unreleased documentary film directed by Robert Frank & David Seymour chronicling the RS North American Tour in 1972 in support of their new album Exile On Main Street; the tour fulfilled its promise of tremendous rock and roll performances on stage while behind the scenes the tour embodied debauchery, lewdness and hedonism. The film was cinéma vérité with several cameras used and plenty of film left lying around for anyone in the entourage to pick up and start shooting, this allowed the audience to eyewitness backstage parties, drug use, roadie antics and the Stones with their defences down. The film was under a court order that forbids it from being shown unless the director was physically present, this stemming from the conflict that arose between the band that commissioned the film and then decided that its content wasn t appropriate and didn t want it to be shown, hence the fact that it has never been released officially, but with the death of Robert Frank chances to see it released officially fell. Even the Stones themselves had used portions of it in their documentaries  like 25 x 5. Some years ago it came out on IMP as printed silver disc presenting all the film on DVD however marred by obtrusive Japanese subtitles and with two channels PCM audio, the next best thing to proper stereo. This time Mayflower has printed it on a silver DVD housed in a single jewel case after having digitally remastered, claiming to have full colour footage as well as stereo soundtrack   and in fact we get the best version of this film that has ever circulated, sporting many (not all) clear colour images where there used to be blurred footage and a real stereo soundtrack. Track 6 Mick On Piano is actually Jagger playing the refrain of the famous lost duet with Carly Simon Funny funny funny…(heard also at Track 28 with more lyrics and song s title Fragile mentioned). The previous IMP version had sex scene on the plane having a black box covering explicit parts, not the case here, it is even possible to see a groupie with cream on ! Andy Warhol, Truman Capote, Dick Cavett,   Ahmet Ertegun, Marshall Chess and Tuna Turner are among those that visited the band backstage; Bianca Jagger is filmed in her hotel room playing a carillon and then filming Jagger, Richards and Taylor inside a car and outside .Great is the footage of a backstage jam with Stevie Wonder and his band, full colour for Uptight on stage with special mention for Jagger accompanying S.Wonder at centre stage for Satisfaction. There is very thorny footage in the hotel room where first a groupie and then a roadie shoot their arms with a syringe. This film is   somehow charming because of the fact that many scenes that were previously hard to see can now be seen in full like Jagger and Richards preparing their drugs backstage as well as sniffing in the stuff room, it is amazing to see how stoned were even the camera assistants. At times it is hard to understand if director s intention was to show them in black and white or if there is still some discoloration; in fact the famous scene when the tv is thrown out of the balcony by Richards and Keys was not in colour on 25 x 5 but it is here. All live songs footage is anyway in colour. This is a nice release and an  effort finally released on printed format, for the pleasure of many collectors.
