Often regarded as the period in which The Rolling Stones recorded the finest music of their career, the years during which Mick Taylor was the fifth Stone remain the band's golden age. Notably, on albums Let It Bleed, Sticky Fingers and Exile On Main Street the Stones' sound changed as they developed new ideas and were informed by a range of new influence. But crucially it was Taylor's sophisticated blues and jazz licks that gave The Rolling Stones an added dimension. This dynamic film tells the behind the scenes story of this hugely productive era for the group. Featuring interviews with Mick himself and further contributions from his old boss, John Mayall; author and group colleague, Robert Greenfield; Village Voice music editor, Robert Christgau; Stones session musicians Al Perkins and Bill Plummer, and many others. The program also includes performance footage of The Stones, archive footage and interviews, seldom seen photographs and a host of other features.
