What I find particularly interesting about the dvd re-issue of this brilliant work is the essay booklet inside. One significant fact revealed in one of the essays, though not in the movie itself, is that a dispute over rights for the film is what necessitated the last minute relocation to the speedway.

The Stones of the late 60's and early 70's are a disease I've never gotten over. Let It Bleed, Get Yer Ya-Ya's Out, Sticky Fingers, and Exile on Main St. have fascinated me since I was in my mid-teens. I watch this film every year. At first, it was for the music, but now that I've begun to understand the cultural and political milieu of the Bay Area at that time, it takes on the inexorability of a Greek tragedy or a train wreck. Or a Greek train wreck. Interesting related material is Sam Culter's recent memoir, and Hunter Thompson's "Hell's Angels". Favorite moment? It's a toss-up, between Keef wiggling to Brown Sugar, and Mick Taylor listening to Wild Horses.
