“It’s an echo of a storied show held in that same leafy preserve 44 years earlier.”

“The Rolling Stones prove that, even though it’s only rock and roll, they can still rock it out 50-years on. Sweet Summer Sun – Hyde Park Live is a great live greatest hits concert of The Stones going home again.”
“Both the DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 and the LPCM 2.0 tracks sound vibrant and accurate, delivering the somewhat chaotic sound of the concert with very lifelike acuity… [The Rolling Stones deliver] a hugely energetic and enjoyable performance. Highly recommended.”
