On October 12, Eagle Rock Entertainment will simultaneously release the DVD and Blu-ray editions of the long-awaited “Ladies & Gentlemen…The Rolling Stones.” [Pre-book Order Date September 17, MSRP $14.98 for DVD, $19.98 for Blu-ray]. This is probably the most sought after Rolling Stones concert performance and it has been fully restored and remastered from the original film print and multi-track audio masters. “Ladies & Gentlemen …” follows the highly successful CD reissue of “Exile On Main Street” (Universal Music Group) in May of this year and the “Stones In Exile” DVD (Eagle Rock Entertainment) on June 22, 2010. The October 12 releases will be followed shortly after by a deluxe edition box set with additional bonus material and memorabilia [MSRP $99.98].
Filmed in Texas in 1972 over four nights of the “Exile On Main Street” US tour, “Ladies & Gentlemen …” was premiered at the Ziegfield Theatre in New York on April 15, 1974 and released into selected cinemas across the USA shortly afterwards. Bonus features on this release include tour rehearsal footage from Montreux, plus two interviews with Mick Jagger; one from a 1972 Old Grey Whistle Test show, and one filmed in 2010.
The line-up for this show comprised Mick Jagger (vocals), Keith Richards (guitars), Charlie Watts (drums), Bill Wyman (bass), Mick Taylor (guitars) with Bobby Keys (saxophones), Jim Price (horns) and Nicky Hopkins (piano). Ladies & Gentlemen was billed at the time as “…the most powerful rock film ever made” and is considered by many fans to be the finest Rolling Stones performance ever captured on film.
