Direct from the BBC, this documenatary is amazing, and really captures the love of Albums as an Art Form. This IS the inspiration that lead us to create Wines That Rock. They are all in there: The Rolling Stones, The Grateful Dead, Pink Floyd...
Hope you enjoy this is story of When Albums Ruled the World.
Between the mid 1960s and the late 1970s, the long-playing record and the albums that graced its grooves changed popular music for ever. For the first time, musicians could escape the confines of the three-minute pop single and express themselves as never before across the expanded artistic canvas of the album. The LP allowed popular music become an art form - from the glorious artwork adorning gatefold sleeves, to the ideas and concepts that bound the songs together, to the unforgettable music itself.
Built on stratospheric sales of albums, these were the years when the music industry exploded to become bigger than Hollywood. From pop to rock, from country to soul, from jazz to punk, all of music embraced what 'the album' could offer. But with the collapse of vinyl sales at the end of the 70s and the arrival of new technologies and formats, the golden era of the album couldn't last forever.
With contributions from Roger Taylor, Ray Manzarek, Noel Gallagher, Guy Garvey, Nile Rodgers, Grace Slick, Mike Oldfield, Slash and a host of others, this is the story of When Albums Ruled the World.

Thank you again for the tickets. Below is my experience.
I am a Stones fan from 1974. I heard " It's Only Rock and Roll" , that song got me hooked. When I was notified of my win of the two tickets to the Brooklyn show, I was thrilled. I have seen the Stones 15 times, but it was a dream of mine to see them in New York.
When I first arrived at the Barclay Center, I had to go and find my seats. I could not believe how close I was to the stage. The stage was a basic set- up not the elaborate stage of past tours. I thought it was cool to see the band similar to their early days.
The stage was shaped like the Stones logo. The upper portion was the lips and lower portion of the stage was a "cat walk" for Mick to strut around. (And he strutted) In between was a pit area for those to stand and watch the show.
The Stones show began at 8:35 with a drum corp in gorilla masks banging on drums. Then the lights dimmed and on the large screen was various Stones fans and celebrities describing when they first heard the Stones, and why they were long time fans.
Then the Stones appeared on stage! The opening song was Get Off My Cloud. A wonderful song to start the show. I have never heard this song live, so it was a real treat!
The set list had a variety of hits from the 60's, 70's, 80's and two new songs from GRRR. The two new songs One More Shot and Doom and Gloom were well received. Mick swaggered through-out the show, putting the Justin Bieber generation to shame! Keith was spot on with Before They Make Me Run and Happy. Keith's "Happy" is one of my favorite songs to hear in concert.
Mary Jane Blige joining Mick on Gimme Shelter was awesome. Her strong vocals was a perfect interplay with Mick. Very well done. Also, Gary
Clarke Jr, appeared with the band for Going Down a blues song made popular by Freddie King. Another great song.
Of course Sympathy for the Devil, Brown Sugar, (With the great Bobby Keyes on Sax) and Miss You (with Bobby Keyes) were great! A real treat was You Can't Always Get What You Want, with a local choir joining Mick on vocals. It was exactly like how the song was originally done on "Let it Bleed".
The finale of Satisfaction ended a truly satisfying, excellent show by the Stones.
I had an awesome time, truly a dream come true. Thanks to Wines That Rock.
