REVIEW:

This DVD set released on the occasion of the 50th Anniversary of Their Satanic Majesties album presents for the most part audio tracks, however the first one has almost 1 hour of video material, starting with the so called lyric video album, which is a composition of psychedelic video computer generated pictures (taken from the Satanic album artwork with the same style and fonts)   offering the songs lyrics on the screen in slideshow format, a quite remarkable feature, on Disc Two from Track 15 through 82 there are instead lots of nice pictures;  the audio part is anyway superb. The next three videos are the promo films in excellent quality and in colour. Then starts the audio portion, although there are always pictures on the screen while the outtakes are played, being changed at each song. Here we can find a complete coverage of the unpublished precious sessions that will make this the ultimate collector s edition for this material. Contrary to the cds that offered a best of compilation, here we have about 7 hours and a half of outtakes, jams, rehearsals and different sounding tunes, everything that was available has been included along with the Bell Sound acetate that sprung up some years ago. Strangely, for some reason on the outtakes of In Another Land, Wyman s bass is confined to the right channel, as well as the drums on some takes. Nicky Hopkins on harpsichord is here the centre of all action, however there is also stuff that will later give birth to Beggars Banquet, let alone Majesties Honky Tonk that has nothing to do with Honky Tonk Women, whose first attempts can be possibly found on Title 15. It must be said that the various takes of each song are easy to select using the menu taking advantage of the DVD features. This content can well be called a definitive comprehensive versio ,however many takes are missing, for instance we go from Take 7 of Title 15 to Take 17 which is on the acetate, although it is possible that the rest is called Jam One, which is pretty similat. It is not known how this stuff came out, it must also be said that Glyn Johns and his brother Andy engineered all the sessions, with the Stones acting as producers from early June for the first time, however Andrew Oldham last session was produced on June 21st  of the same year (Dandelion); the band fired Oldham and kept on producing themselves a mere 10 days later (July 2nd)  to be replaced by Jimmy Miller the following year for Beggars Banquet. The best setting is in my opinion to listen to these DVDs is via earphones to the audio while watching the tv screen, this enhances the experience especially for the promos and lyric album. Packaging is not bad, but due to the huge number of versions and takes it probably would have been better to offer a booklet instead of stuffing everything on the DVD clamshell back cover, you really need a magnifying glass to read all the details. Question on the front photograph: whose hand is holding Charlie s head? I believe it is Mick s left hand and Charlie s own hand is close to his chin (over Keith s arm). It is yet unknown whose left hand is holding Brian s fur (Oldham?). The first 100 copies come with a bonus blu ray disc which will be reviewed later
