During the summers between 1968 and 1971 a series of free
concerts were staged in London's Hyde Park. The free concert
headed by the Rolling Stones on 5 July 1969 was to debut their new
guitarist Mick Taylor, but instead it became a memorial concert for
former band member Brian Jones, who had died two days prior.
Artist Rod MacLeod left New Zealand in the mid 60s to see the
likes of Hendrix, Blind Faith, Pink Floyd and many others
performing live. Rod attended nearly all of the Hyde Park
free concerts including the Stones' performance. Rod puts
this landmark documentary in context and embellishes it with his
photographs taken at the concert.
