Description of the book "The Rolling Stones: Gimme Shelter":
The Rolling Stones concert at Altamont will forever be remembered as one of the most frightening moments in rock &- roll history. Gimme Shelter documented that night with chilling cinéma vérité accuracy. Criterion has delivered the film to DVD in a package that exceeds the expectation of any fan. The disc offers a standard full-frame transfer that preserves the original theatrical aspect ratio of 1.33:1. English soundtracks are rendered in Dolby Digital 5.1, DTS 5.1, and Dolby Digital Stereo. English subtitles are accessible. The exhaustive, generous supplemental materials include a commentary track by directors Albert Maysles, Charlotte Zwerin, and their associate Stanley PDF Goldstein. Their enlightening and entertaining comments are relevant from both a filmmaking and a gossipy backstage standpoint. Also available on this disc are never-before-seen concert footage from the band, backstage footage, a still photograph gallery, and trailers for both the original film and the 30th anniversary re-release. A 44-page booklet containing a series of well-written essays accompanies the package. In the nicest historical touch on the disc, Criterion has included a large portion of the broadcast done by KSAN a day after the concert occurred. This is simply a spectacular disc that is a PDF must-own for rock &- roll enthusiasts.
