UDISCOVER PRESENTS RARE ROLLING STONES 'STRIPPED' ARCHIVE INTERVIEW SERIES
The bulk of the album had been recorded at three concerts held, respectively, at Amsterdam’s Paradiso (26 May 1995), Paris’ Olympia (3 July) and London’s Brixton Academy (19 July) – all intimate venues that a band as huge as The Rolling Stones rarely deign to perform. Yet Keith Richards would rightly extol “the immediacy” of performing in such close quarters with their fans: the Stones pulled out some of their finest live performances ever, playing a total 64 songs across the three nights, 36 of which were unique to the setlist on the night they were performed.
Totally Stripped shines a new light on this period in the Stones’ career with a reworked version of the documentary of the same name. DVD+CD and DVD+2LP versions also include collections of favourite live performances picked specifically for this reissue, while five-disc special edition DVD and SD Blu-ray packages contain the CD and documentary, plus the complete three live shows used to compile the original album. Taken together, the three concerts present the Stones at their raw, invigorated best.
