Well, this is a VERY good movie and the type of movie that you have to see many times to be able to catch everything. I`m very exited about it, and besides that it had very good press in the Swedish morning paper Dagens Nyheter today. This is "my cup of tea"! Only one song that I`m not that happy with and that`s Far Away Eyes, much to fast. I love this song but not the way they performe it on SAL.
This is the 'Stones' right in your face close up and personal with the guitars turned up loud and rocking . One of their best performances for a long long time and not to be missed . Songs that burned were - She was Hot Shattered Some Girls Faraway Eyes Tumblin Dice (excellent version) Just my Imagination Brown Sugar
SAL the film has no over dubs as was highlighted in Keef's solo in Sympathy which was particularly poor. Overall an excellent right in your face concert performance by the 'Stones and can't wait for the official release date of the DVD.

Well, I just got back to my hotel room here in Helsinki after seeing SAL for the third time. My two first shows were last Friday, April 18th when SAL had its premiere in Helsinki. I drove down from my home town about 450 kilometres one direction just to go to the movies. Well, we had a good time before the movie and after the movie with Juha, Jokke and Toma. They then vent home around eleven a clock in the evening and what should I do then, hang in the bar or go to my hotel? Naaaah, halloo, there is a night show as well on SAL. So, I got a ticket for the 12 a clock show as well. That night I then got my SAL premiere sober and the second one not so sober.
This week I am in Helsinki again for work. So what to do in the evening? Well, you can guess the rest.
What struck me the third time seeing the movie was the general feeling on stage. Amazing, just like a bunch of lads having fun together. So relaxed feeling, lots of smiles, lots of appreciation of their fellow band members. And then Keith, like wooow, for me is his performance of You Got The Silver just outstanding, for sure one of the highlights in the movie and so nice footage as well. Another favourite of mine is Champagne and Reefer, the band in full force. Another super performance was Some Girls. Then another…. Ah, well, you get the point. Absolutely fantastic movie
Reason for going three times within a week is naturally to check if they would change the set list from night to night. I was kind of hoping to get Paint It Black, but noup, same songs every night.
