While everyone has a favourite era from the magnificent career of the Rolling
Stones, few can deny that the period 1966 - 1969 was the most dynamic,
assured and revelatory of the half century they have existed. With five studio
albums of a quite astonishing quality released, the song writing partnership
between Mick Jagger and Keith Richards reached heights of an unsurpassed
quality. And as their sonic development continued, not only did the sound of
The Rolling Stones change, the entire Rock landscape was forever altered while
the swinging sixties became all but a hazy memory.
Rolling Stones - The Second Wave is a documentary film which looks exclusively
at this period of unrelenting activity as the Stones celebrity reached fever pitch
on both sides of the Atlantic and around the world. With exclusive contributions
from a host of acclaimed critics and writers, friends and colleagues of the band
and those closest to them during this period, together with rare performance
footage, seldom seen band interviews, and featuring the music of the era throughout,
this DVD provides the definitive insight into the Rolling Stones during the years
they rolled most frantically.
