Ladies And Gentlemen, The Rolling Stones, Directed by Rollin Binzer (Musifilm/Chesco — Bingo/Butterfly)

Wayne Robins, Creem, August 1974

Ladies and Gentlemen the Rolling Stones is a film concert rather than a concert film, this distinction being that while most films of concerts cover an event, this film is the event. In the tradition of all great road shows, the film will play only consecutive limited engagements in individual cities, carrying with it its own self-sufficient unit of equipment and personnel. The use of quadraphonic sound in the film, i.e., the re-creation of the atmosphere at an actual Stones concert with sight, sound, and excitement equivalent to front row center.
