This documentary, probably made for TV, covers the development of the Rolling Stones musically from 1962-66. It contains a great deal of TV footage, interspersed with commentary by people who knew the Stones from their earliest days, including people who worked with them and Dick Taylor, their original bass man, who left to join another band (you have to wonder what he thinks when he checks his bank balance). There are no interviews with any of the Stones, and little information about them as individuals. This DVD is primarily for either serious fans or people interested in popular music as a creative form. The subtitle "Born Under A Bad Sign" has nothing to do with anything other than being the name of a blues song while the Stones were originally (and arguably are still) a blues band. The DVD is worth watching, but is nothing great.

This is a decent DVD with contributions by Stones associates including Dick Taylor (early member) and crew members.
