Mick, Madison Square Garden, 1970 — Albert Maysles

In early 1968, Mick Jagger and Keith Richards asked [Haskell] Wexler about the possibility of his shooting the Rolling Stones’ upcoming North American tour. At the time, Wexler was in the middle of writing a script with Paul Golding, and they opted to stick with that project. Wexler recommended that the band get in touch with his good friends Albert and David Maysles, who enlisted D. A. Pennebaker, and it was their footage that became the touchstone concert documentary Gimme Shelter. That project of Wexler and Golding’s never came to fruition, but the next one was Medium Cool.
