Description
Called “the greatest rock film ever made”, this landmark documentary follows the Rolling Stones on their notorious 1969 U.S. tour. When three hundred thousand members of the Love Generation collided with a few dozen Hells Angels at San Francisco’s Altamont Speedway, Direct Cinema pioneers David and Albert Maysles and Charlotte Zwerin were there to immortalize on film the bloody slash that transformed a decade’s dreams into disillusionment.

  2. I dislike this film/documentary so much because of what it could have been..really..the Hell with Altamont! Stones fans want to see the Stones play, play, man!! Especially with the Mick Taylor line up. When he joined the band–the Stones suddenly became a
    Serious band. What did they do before and after Sticky Fingers and Exile? a few gems here and there? He even put his stamp on Let it Bleed (although Kef’ did do most the the lead work on that–amazing!). I hope there is footage out there of this tour–and the Stones take a hint from the Mighty Zepplin and release all that we only get glimpses of in this boring snoozer that you have to keep your finger on the FF button for.

  3. After I watched the show on TV, I don’t even care what the other two reviewers said that the black guy wanted to shoot Jagger on stage and he was killed by the people who saw his act directly. My honest opinion is: I`D NEVER BEEN A STONES FAN. It is the fault of the band & their security themselves, because they gave the concert in Altamont for free. As a result was: everybody from all villages came to see the band, they carried anything they wanted to bring; knives, bottles, haschisch, beers, dogs, children, guns what ever…without being checked seriously by the security.

    I’d rather to see Judas Priest, Iron Maiden, Purple or Black Sabbath shows.

  4. Not this DVD, Video or whattever it’s on nowadays again!!!!!!!
    It’s a documentary of a concert that went wrong, due to the Stones hiring The Hells Angels as security!!! Now, How exciting can that be??!!!! The Stones start playing, they have to stop, they start again, stop again, and so on, and so on.
    A good video? Hell no!
    Stones trying to cash in again? Definetely!

  5. i never saw this dvd but i had to give it a rating. im here to talk about another video. it is emotional rescue video. i am looking for the full version without the thermo. they destroyed that one by putting in the thermo shots. that was the best performance i ever saw of the stones. it was in the studio and the performance was excellent. i saw it back in 1981 on the solid gold show and never saw it since. its on the vhs tape called video rewind but they cut the video down to nothing with thermo shots. and it was recently put on you tube but they removed it quickly. what is the reason for this. did someone buy the rites or something. please release the full studio version video of emotional rescue with no thermo shots at all. i would pay 300 dollars for it. thank you very much
