"The Rolling Stones 1969-1975 - The Mick Taylor Years"- July 27

MVD will release the new DVD, "The Rolling Stones 1969-1975 - The Mick Taylor Years" on July 27.

"...Often regarded as the period in which The Rolling Stones recorded the finest music of their career, the years during which Mick Taylor was the fifth Stone remain the band's 'Golden Age'. Notably, on albums "Let It Bleed", "Sticky Fingers" and "Exile On Main Street" the Stones' sound changed as they developed new ideas and were informed by a range of new influences.

"Crucially it was Taylor's sophisticated blues and jazz licks that gave The Rolling Stones an added dimension between 1969 and 1975 - one they lacked both before and afterwards. This dynamic film tells the behind the scenes story of this hugely productive era for the group..."

The DVD features interviews with Taylor and his old boss, John Mayall; author and group colleague, Robert Greenfield; Village Voice music editor, Robert Christgau; Stones session musicians, Al Perkins and Bill Plummer; UK music critic, Barney Hoskyns and a whole lot more.
