Blu-Ray Review: The Rolling Stones “From The Vault” LIVE

91-D7QGzpvL._SX522_Eagle Rock Entertainment adds another title to their expanding Rolling Stones “From The Vault” series with the Blu-Ray release “Hyde Park LIVE 1969.”

This is the first release to not offer a companion audio release and that’s okay because this is the weakest title in the series so far. As a time capsule release this is definitely worth a look but if you’re here for great audio and picture this might not be the release for you.

The credits in the 16-Page booklet state that the film has been remastered but the actual release on Blu-Ray was very grainy and looks as if nothing was done to it whatsoever. As for the sound… it’s pretty good but this is not a very good performance by the band. In fact Keith’s guitar sounds out of tune for the entire show.

Between songs there are some great interviews with the band and audience members but nothing in the way of special features other than the enclosed booklet that adds unseen photos and notes by Richard Havers. The booklet also states that the 8 song setlist on this release is actually truncated from the bands original 14 songs that were played that day. I wish that footage could have been found to give a more complete overview of the bands performance.

This Blu-Ray is a nice addition to the other “From The Vault” release titles but “Hyde Park LIVE 1969” will definitely be of more interest to diehard fans and Rolling Stones completists.

Drumroll please… 6 out of 10 drumsticks!!!
