The Rolling Stones - Ladies and Gentlemen
1972 Tour Documentary - 4 Reel Productions - DVD-R1
Comments: For the group's 1972 American tour, photographer and experimental filmmaker Robert Frank was brought along to make a movie about the Stones; Frank was given total access to the band's activities both on- and off-stage, and he put every scandalous moment of The Stones' debauched lifestyle into Cocksucker Blues -- so much so that the band successfully pursued legal action to prevent the film from being released, though Frank was given permission to screen the film once a year. In its place the band released "Ladies And Gentlemen ... The Rolling Stones". There are many versions of this classic in circulation, most from fairly high generation VHS sources - this one, titled "4 Reel Productions" is the best of the bunch and not only features excellent quality letterboxed video but nice menus and bonus tracks as well. Recommended.
