    Okay, watching it now. Sound is fair, camera angles fair but rough. Geeeeez, hippies sure were filthy in 1978.

    Yep, that's it! Quite a good concert! Even in DTS it sounds great although dated. And I have to admit after watching this I've never seen Keith play as aggressive before (or after) as he does here. The guy is on fire here.

    Yeah, even though the video of this show only surfaced recently, the audio was in the bootleg universe for decades, and it's probably my second favorite Stones performance ever

    (The Brussels Affair from 1973 is still #1. And I mean the bootleg version, not the Bob Clearmountain "remaster" with Mick Taylor practically inaudible in the mix except for the solos)

    The performance is remarkable. I must say I was quite impressed with this disc. Even Wyman can be heard! Keith is really the entertainment here even with Jagger being ah, Jagger. No gimmicky playing, brilliant fills and solos both him and Wood seem to be at the peak of their playing skills. You can really see just how much of a riff-writing genius Richards is and he seems so comfortable at doing it even though he must be higher than a kite. Was also a bit surprised to see Doug Kershaw playing violin with them. Anyway, this is how the Stones should play - no fucking Taylor Swift, no Brad Paisley, no Jack White.

    Well... technically it's not the entire set. It's the broadcast version, same content as above. But the HD is definitely worth the upgrade.

    My guess is that when another "Four Flicks"/"Biggest Bang" video box set of this tour is released just in time for "Black Friday" sales, it will contain a full DVD of this show, among others.

    But this will hold a Devil over until then......

    Well, here's the full set list from the Stones own website.....

    RS Setlist GLASTONBURY June 29 2013

    Jumpiní Jack Flash

    Itís Only Rock ĎNí Roll (But I Like It)

    Paint It Black

    Gimme Shelter

    Glastonbury Girl

    Wild Horses

    Doom And Gloom

    Canít You Hear Me Knocking (with Mick Taylor)

    Honky Tonk Women

    You Got The Silver (with Keith Richards on lead vocals)

    Happy (with Keith Richards on lead vocals)

    Miss You

    Midnight Rambler (with Mick Taylor)

    2000 Light Years From Home

    Sympathy For The Devil

    Start Me Up

    Tumbling Dice

    Brown Sugar

    ENCORE

    You Canít Always Get What You Want (with the Voce Choir and members of the London Youth Choir)

    (I Canít Get No) Satisfaction (with Mick Taylor)
    The broadcast version - and the version posted at Dime - start with "Miss You". So the first half of the set is unaccounted for.

    Even the audio bootlegs (apparently taken from same day FM broadcasts) have the same set.

    Seems odd that a headliner would only get half their set on the air, especially when it's "the world's greatest rock n roll band".......

    I think initially the Stones - and people are interpreting this as Mick negotiating - wanted a lot less to be shown than was actually broadcast. I dunno why - could be about money. The word is that Glastonbury don't pay a lot of money to anyone, but because the Festival has had wall-to-wall BBC coverage since the 90s, the acts accept the lower performance fees because they will likely get a boost in sales of albums etc.

    The BBC typically film EVERYTHING, and over the coming months it could be that the rest of the set will sneak out on one of their channels - they always broadcast stuff from Glastonbury to fill in gaps in the months after the actual event. If they do show the rest of the set, some Stones fan out there will be watching and recording / ripping it from BBC's iplayer.

    Does the BBC have any plans to broadcast the Hyde Park show on the 6th?

    If there is a DVD/Blu-Ray I bet it would be the PPV from December. Wasn't one of the London shows on PPV over there? Maybe both shows make up the set.

    Dunno, but I will be looking out for it.

    I think with Glastonbury they do it every year no matter who is playing, and the Stones probably had to give a bit more there than they might ordinarily do in terms of allowing transmission of the show, because everyone else on the bill always allows parts of their set to be broadcast, and headliners often allow the whole thing to be broadcast.

    I have no doubt that the whole thing was filmed by the BBC - they just never showed it all due to some agreement.

    I use "Get iPlayer" to rip BBC iPlayer content - it's something someone has put together for ripping content they do not want you to obtain. Not sure if you can use it outside the UK unless you are using a proxy or something. The material that you get from it is the same quality as the BBC iPlayer streaming quality. I doubt it is HD, but it scales up very well from a MPG file on a computer to, say, a 42-inch TV (which is my largest TV), and is better than the broadcast quality of a lot of channels.

    I knew a journalist from Men's Health whose introduction to you would include 'but I'm not gay'.

    I think he was the only guy who worked there or read it who wasn't...

    Not that there is anything wrong with that....

    From what I read, the guy who had the 15GB torrent on Dime removed it because a buncha peeps were insulting him and he took his toys and went home.

    There was a brilliant statistic doing the rounds a couple of years back that Glasgow had the highest gym membership in the UK but also the lowest attendance figures.

    Yeah, sometime in the long forgotten early 1980s, a buddy suggested I join him with a membership at one of the dozen or more "health gyms" that sprouted up in the neighborhood, seemingly overnight. Two things stood out:

    1. All of the women wore Olivia Newton John-inspired outfits from that dismal "Let's Get Physical" video, complete with oddly fitting sweater/tank tank tops, goofy headbands (that Bret Michaels still wears to this very day) and over-sized leg-warmer things, done up in neon pink. This and vague memories of Flashdance and Footloose movies will haunt me forever.

    2. I was heaped with scorn whenever I lit up a cigarette in the weight room. And just try to bring in a six pack of beer in your cooler.

    Two months later, my same friend's astoundingly gorgeous girlfriend (whom he did not deserve-why do the best women fall for total assbags? I don't get it, and never will. I guess I'm not a total asshat, as you'd think I'd have a list of former Penthouse models written on a scrap of paper in my wallet by now) talked me into going vegetarian. So I found myself at sushi bars for a while, but it didn't take. Think Jimmy Buffett's "Cheeseburger In Paradise"...

    Tried to amend my carnivorous habits.
    Made it nearly seventy days,
    Losin' weight without speed, eatin' sunflower seeds,
    Drinkin' lots of carrot juice and soakin' up rays.
    But at night I'd have these wonderful dreams
    Some kind of sensuous treat.
    Not zucchini, fettuccini, or bulgur wheat,
    But a big warm bun and a huge hunk of meat.


    Fuck healthy concerns and the crippled horse they rode in on. Eat, drink and be merry, as long as you don't embarrass yerself and end up looking like Homer Simpson. Then again, Homer generally appears to be happy, so maybe there is a lesson in that.

    Some people say Homer provides a bad example to modern men ...

I doubt it is HD, but it scales up very well from a MPG file on a computer to, say, a 42-inch TV (which is my largest TV), and is better than the broadcast quality of a lot of channels.
    Never heard of this program until I saw this post yesterday. Haven't tried to record anything with it yet, but I'm getting the listings, so it looks like it might work. Supposedly the articles talking about it say that it bypasses the "Brits only" restriction that you get on the BBC website itself. That would be most excellent if it worked AND if BBC carried the Stones show on Saturday.

    It works on windows - it's a command prompt prog, easy to use (see instructions). BBC iPlayer content is usually available for a week after first broadcast.

    I don't think the Stones' upcoming show is on the schedules. The four BBC TV channels - schedules etc - can be found here:
