AllMusic Review by

This concert, recorded in Munich in 1973, is a blistering, raunchy, and incredibly loud performance that has the Stones going balls-out on ferocious versions of their biggest hits. It's great to hear and fun to own but, because of its poor sound quality, hard to play at the proper volume. The show opens at a breakneck pace with "Brown Sugar," "Happy," and "Gimme Shelter" before settling into a buoyant "Tumbling Dice." The rest of the disc features a surprisingly relaxed "You Can't Always Get What You Want," a slightly reworked "Honky Tonk Women," and a savage "Street Fighting Man." One of the better Stones live boots of the early '70s.
