Overview

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.

53 mins. 1969
