THE ROLLING STONES Ladies & Gentlemen… The Rolling Stones (1972) – Unreleased Film Soundtrack

Ladies & Gentlemen… The Rolling Stones (1972)
Unofficial Film Soundtrack

From The Archives, 2010: Since certain areas of the country would never get anywhere near a Stones world tour, this “Quadrophonic Film Concert” (as it was billed) was about the next best thing. It’s from the Stones’ 1972 Exile On Main Street Tour, recorded in Texas over four nights, and the band line-up features Mick Taylor, along with auxiliary greats like Nicky Hopkins and Bobby Keys. So it’s hard to go wrong with this set, which sounds pretty much like any other live material from the Stones during this period. Wiki (HERE) has some detailed information about how unique the film was. This particular post is some variation of a soundboard version, as no official soundtrack has been released as yet. A DVD was finally issued just last month after decades in storage. Amazon has it HERE and the standard, expensive box set HERE. Find too much Stones to list, HERE.

    Thanks for this post Willard! It really brought back great memories of seeing the Stones on this tour back in 1972 at Madison Square Garden. I was lucky enough to have been there on the night Jagger celebrated his birthday & was able to catch the jam between the tour’s opening act, Stevie Wonder, and the Stones on “Uptight / I Can’t Get No Satisfaction”….I found my ticket the other day and it was priced at $4.50…ample illustration of how damaging the presence of Live Nation and Ticketmaster have been on the ability of folks to enjoy live music at a reasonable cost. Amen.

      $4.50?
      These days you’d be lucky to get a nosebleed seat for $450.

        Exactly that. Live Nation and Ticketmaster are behind the obscene prices we’re seeing today.

      My first show: Led Zep at the LA Forum 3-27-70. $2.99. 2nd to last row on the left side of the stage as high up as possible.

      You could not find street parking for $2.99 nowadays.

      Nowadays I flat out refuse to pay more than $50 for a ticket to see anybody. Ticket fees included. I don’t care if Kate Bush decided to play in my living room. Naked. With my lap as her piano bench. And played a 2 hours set hand picked by me. If it cost $50.01 I would say “no”. On principal. NOBODY is worth more than that to see live regardless of how good or bad the seat is.

      Thanks for this great Stones post btw. Willard

        Luckily I have been able to see the Stones 5-6 times since 1999 for $75 an under a ticket. Well worth it. And none of those were nosebleeds either. The large dollar amounts that make headlines are for the closer seats. Crazy expensive yes. But someone pays for them. Like the S-bucks exaggerations of “$5 for a cup of coffee!” (actually plain coffee small is usually $1.75 here in my area of US but I think they’re overrated and burnt tasting sometimes depending on location & the teen workers f-ing up the ratio) the ticket prices can be high but not always.

          Yeah… and I was exaggerating for effect. Truth is, I haven’t been to a concert in years, and haven’t been to a BIG show this century. I can’t think of anyone that would change that. So, despite my comment, I wouldn’t know one way or the other about concert costs these days.

    In those days, most tickets were 4, 5 and 6 dollars. I always asked myself if the concert would be worth it, since the cost of a new album was about $4, and I could play it as many times as I wanted…I bought a lot more albums than concert tickets!

    1964. Beatles at the Sydney stadium..$2.50. Same price as an album.

    Back when Exiles came out my friends brother quit school and he & a friend followed them through a tour of Canada (not 100 percent sure on the country as my memory is a bit fuzzy) when they came back home whenever you went over to the house the stereo had the Stones playing and that’s how I became a Stones fan.
