Summary:

Great performances from the band in shows that feature some of their all-time classics along with other great songs that sadly get overlooked sometimes, mean this CD is a great addition to the collection of any Rolling Stones fan.

“Ladies and Gentlemen: The Rolling Stones” was a concert movie filmed at four shows in Texas on the 1972 “Exile on main street” tour.  It was released in 1974.  After that initial cinema run, it was largely unavailable apart from a VHS release in the 80s, until 2010 when it was given a re-release in cinemas before being released on DVD and BluRay by Eagle Rock Entertainment.
Now the soundtrack is being released as a CD in a month that see’s Eagle Rock also releasing two other Rolling Stones live CDs – “Some girls: Live in Texas ‘78” and “Muddy Waters & The Rolling stones: Checkerboard lounge – live in Chicago 1981”.

It’s surprising really that this soundtrack has never been made available on CD before (except as a DVD/CD or BluRau/CD bundle), so it’s good to see it being released as a standalone CD.  It’s a release that captures the band at their best, and lets be honest – the Rolling Stones at their best are hard to beat.
