I would normally not tout a rock concert DVD, but this is not your normal rock concert DVD. Legendary director Martin Scorsese took it upon himself to create this documentary/concert of the iconic rock band The Rolling Stones. Set in the intimate Beacon Theater in New York City in 2006, this amazing concert included tons of Stones classics songs and a few newer tunes. The guests on stage included Christina Aguilera, Buddy Guy and The White Stripe’s Jack White. Originally conceived for IMAX theaters, this disc plays fine at home (with a good sound system that is), and even if you are not a Stones fan, this is a movie that anyone would find both entertaining and thrilling. The disc contains a short documentary and four songs not included in the original film, including their smash hit Paint It Black.
