Rolling Stones: Live at the Max Previous Broadcasts

KQED Life: Sun, Aug 5, 2012 -- 9:30 PM

This 1991 concert film was shot in the IMAX format and originally presented on enormous IMAX screens, with outstanding visual and audio clarity. Filmed during a European leg of the Rolling Stones' Steel Wheels tour, it boasts great songs and an extraordinary stage.
The Stones' set emphasizes material from the late 1960s and early '70s ("Tumbling Dice," "You Can't Always Get What You Want"). Highlights include "Paint It Black," at once brutal and delicate, as well as a muscular "Rock and a Hard Place," and a cheeky "It's Only Rock 'n' Roll." Bassist Bill Wyman, still in the band at this phase, offers wit and an encyclopedic grasp of rhythm & blues history, while drummer Charlie Watts adds control and swing. Keith Richard and Ron Wood work their guitar magic throughout while Mick Jagger delivers all the charismatic goods for adoring audiences.
