REVIEW:

Volume 2 of the series presents more vintage footage., starting with the Hollywood Palace that has varying quality, a bit too grainy and sound dropouts; more or less the same for the Red Skelton show where the band performs in a pre-set up stage very close together, but in playback. Excellent is indeed the Ed Sullivan show first performance by the Stones, including adverts and a reading about the battle of Balaclava, whose 110th anniversary was on that same day (did we really need this here?); Ready Steady Go footage is great, despite playback singing, the band looks lively anyway maybe due to the colours that add up a new dimension to scenes we seen many times over the years. The interview focuses on the first Stones book ever released Our Own Story by Peter Goodman. Another fantastic set is the famous Shindig episode with Howlin’Wolf, finally in full colour. For the curious the piano player on that show was a young Billy Preston. This is a nice looking colour show, but we shall always remember that the b&w footage was not certainly coming from a low generation recording, imagine what could be to get a master recording treated this way. Packaging is nice but there are lots of mistakes in the sources. Very interesting are Good Times, the Sam Cook song and Mercy Mercy performed at Shindig, the latter with Charlie Watts upfront, promo films rarely seen, let alone in colour. It is interesting to notice that in the May version of Satisfaction Brian Jones played an acoustic guitar, while in the /(censored) September version he was on an electrical guitar.

So, this is yet another interesting chapter in the saga of Stones colorized films.


The best toys are the ones that are both educational and multi-purposeful.
