Rolling Stones' 1991 Concert Film "Live at the Max" Headed to DVD

November 9, 2009 5:55 PM ET

A digitally remastered version of the Rolling Stones' 1991 film Live at the Max — the first feature-length concert movie to be shot using IMAX technology — will be released on Blu-ray and DVD tomorrow, November 10th. Live at the Max was filmed during the Stones' 1990 European tour in support of their album Steel Wheels, which celebrates its 20th anniversary this year. To this day, it remains the most successful IMAX concert film of all-time.

While your TV set isn't exactly a towering IMAX screen, you still will be able to appreciate Live at the Max's crisp picture and excellent audio quality. In addition to the Stones' greatest hits, ranging from "(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction," to "You Can't Always Get What You Want," the 90-minute film also boasts a trio of Steel Wheels songs.

Look back at the Stones' beginnings in early photos.

The DVD release of Live at the Max comes just a week after the Rolling Stones' reissued perhaps their most famous live document, Get Yer Ya-Ya's Out! The Rolling Stones in Concert, for its own 40th anniversary. Another Stones' film, the controversial 1972 documentary Cocksucker Blues, recently had a rare screening in New York.

“Santa Monica”

Everclear | 1996

After his brother and girlfriend both died of drug overdoses, Art Alexakis -- depressed and hooked on drugs himself -- jumped off the Santa Monica Pier in California, determined to die. "It was really stupid," said the Everclear frontman, who would further explore his personal emotional journey in the song "Father of Mine." "I went under the water. Then I said, 'I don't wanna die.'" The song, declaring "Let's swim out past the breakers/and watch the world die," was intended as a manifesto for change, Alexakis said. "Let the world do what it's gonna do and just live on our own."
