With the exception of perhaps Pink Floyd and Led Zeppelin, I don’t believe there is anyone in the rock world with more documentaries about them than The Rolling Stones…

However…most of them usually deal with the early years, when Brian Jones was in the band, and perhaps holding on for the Mick Taylor moments…

But getting past those days was rare, up till now…

The Rolling Stones: Under Review (The Ronnie Wood Years)” takes you to the start of Mick Taylor’s always-assumed departure, and the resounding entrance of Rod Stewart right-hand six-stringer Ron Wood to the band…

Being the perfect choice in both look and talent, Ron Wood brought so much to the band, including some things that nobody could have foreseen, and that was diplomacy…

Known as ‘the easiest going guy in the world’, Ron Wood was there during The Stones most turbulent period, when it looked like there were to be no more Stones to roll…

But with the addition of Woody to the band, he became a conduit for the blistering Jagger-Richards moments that would seem to erupt more and more during that period…and this documentary captures it all brilliantly, along with their foray into disco, their steady stream of catalogue steps and missteps, and of course, their continually sold-out tours that solidified their standing as ‘The Greatest Rock-N-Roll Band In The World’…

And if you are wondering how this dvd could cover all ‘The Ron Wood Years’ when he is still with them, have no fear…this documentary goes up to 1983, with the dubious subtitle, ‘Part One’…
